celcat The CELCAT product line is focused on helping colleges manage efficiently and effectively the two biggest budget items at your institution: space and faculty.

If your strategic plan includes an augmentation in the size of your student body, having the right tools in place to analyze space and faculty needs would be a necessary first step.

In 1999, Charles Keene College and Southfields College were merged to form Leicester College, one of the ten largest Higher Education institutions in Britain.  To obtain financial backing and to service future growth, they had to commit to reducing their physical space by 20%.  The key to making this happen was found in the use of Timetabler, our foundation product.

That product is now found in small institutions of about a thousand students (Vancouver Film School, Los Angeles College of Music) as well as the quite large (Edinburgh College, Scotland with 30,000 students).

Whether small or large, using a timetabling system to manage space and faculty is a major link in having a trouble free operation.  Many benefits accrue to its use, some obvious and some not so obvious.

Come see what we have to offer.
