GL Education

GL Education Group is the UK’s leading provider of formative assessments for schools. The company’s assessments have been widely used by education, health and psychology professionals for over 30 years. More than 3 million pupils in UK primary and secondary schools take its tests every year and it has delivered over 7 million online tests to children worldwide.

Following the realisation that the current system could no longer support their growing, successful business, GL Education made the decision to rethink their software platform. After undertaking pre-coping workshops with Datel, where they were given absolute clarity on what would be delivered, it was clear to GL Education that choosing Sage X3 from Datel was the way to take the business forward.

Industry: Education Services

Current solution: Sage X3

Solution benefits for GL Education Limited:

  • A single system that integrates distribution and finance data and links to existing line-of-business applications
  • Flexibility to evolve with changing company requirements
  • Dashboards and workflows ensure business processes are carried out efficiently and consistently
  • Screen prompts help telesales teams to recommend additional products
  • Expert scoping, implementation and customisation by Datel.

“We sell to at least half the schools in the UK annually – that’s around 16,000 schools – so we collect and analyse vast amounts of data. We now have greater business insight and more flexible analysis with Sage X3 to see what’s going on, compared with when using SAP Business One.”
