In February, ESS SIMS was acquired by new independent owners – we are no longer part of Capita. Our new owners’ sole focus is on education and they are committing substantial investment to enhance the software solutions and service we offer you. Investment that will not only address schools’ needs now but also allow us to develop the tools schools will need in the future.
This new focus and significant investment means we are able to make immediate improvements to the products and services we offer to schools – and much more is to come. We have also begun an unprecedented recruitment programme to strengthen our Account Management, Customer Service and Customer Success teams. And that in turn will mean more people on hand to help you get the most out of our solutions.
And as of the 21 May 2021 we changed the legal name of our company in the UK from Capita ESS Ltd to Education Software Solutions Ltd. The abbreviation ‘ESS’, which we have been using since February, will continue to be our abbreviated acronym.
This does not affect our trading with you in any way – Please be assured that all existing contracts and agreements including POs remain valid and there is no requirement to amend them with the new name, as the contracting legal entity has not changed.
We are also about to launch a series of webinars and expert programmes to help schools tackle some of the most pressing issues in education. We will publish more details over the next few weeks and look forward engaging with your more closely. Look out for details coming soon.
