Apart from Capita, other companise that offer similar systems include; WCBS, Feduna, RM Education and OpenEMIS. There may be others. WCBS seems to specialise in the private school market Feduna is International, multi cultural and multi lingual. RM Education appears to be more about educational resources OpenEMIS is a royalty free generic system, sponsored by UNESCO and largely designed for third world countries. Tribal is focused more on the English speaking countries but there are signs of that changing. illtud

No I don't. It's something I've never done. However, in a previous life, I used to be an education administrator and dealt with most of the back office functions over the years so I fool myself that I can understand what Tribal and Compass are doing. I even planned and introduced a pupil/student based database for the Local Authority I worked for, but nothing like Synergy. illtud

Illutd, I agree the SIMS product is more back office orientated but does look like it offers some of the Synergy functionality but, like you say, it's not such a focused product for pupil support and administration. Be excellent if there wasn't a similar product in the market. Do you converse with TRB?

simon gordon. I've viewed the video and I was impressed. I also looked at what Tribal and Capita said on their websites about what their systems do for schools. As far as I can see, the Tribal system is very orientated towards providing support for pupil administration in the same way as SITS VISION handles student administration whereas the Capita system seems to me to be more directed towards infrastructure and resources in both schools and universities. If I am right, it fits in with what I understand about Tribal and Capita and there may be little competition between them. illtud

Synergy for Schools looks like it's going up against the big daddy in this space, Capita SIMS: SIMS (School Information Management System) is a world-class management information system used by over 22,000 schools in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our solution has been developed specifically for the education sector and has been refined to meet the changing needs of schools over the last 25 years. Our system has a unique depth and breadth enabling schools to manage student and staff information across all areas of school life including registration, finance and payroll, timetabling, progress tracking and assessment, and whole-school communication. hxxp://www.capita-sims.co.uk/ Be interesting to find out what Synergy's USP is so that it can start displacing SIMS.

Illtud, What do you reckon to TRB's new software product for schools, Synergy? YouTube - 25/10/13: Synergy in Schools is a new on line management information system. It significantly reduces the time spent in managing the administrative, academic and behavioural data required in the day-to-day operations of a school. The solution includes a range of modules which have been developed with the objective of maximising school efficiencies, while minimising administrative overheads. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffnxBbtE2v4 Is this a new market for TRB? I don't think they've previously sold software systems to schools.

I think you're right about TA although I've only recently got into it and am still struggling. But it's the future prospects for Tribal that brought me here, not the charts. illtud

Yer I'm also skeptical of TA, not bulletproof but can often give you an idea especially when there is limited news. When we hit 207 back in sept that also hit a trendline indicating that if it broke it we would go further it didn't and now we're here, hopefully this is a sign of the way we're going now. I'm expecting a head back to 200 imo dyor bla bla etc gl ben

You did it. Thanks. I have problems like that as well. I see it has definitely crossed the down trendline and it has crossed the 20 day sma as well. Looking good, imho. but I'm always cautious about timescales. illtud

Canada could keep them busy for a number of years! WIKI on the States: The United States has a total of 4,495 Title IV-eligible, degree-granting institutions: 2,774 4-year institutions and 1,721 2-year institutions. As of 2010, the US had 20.3 million students in higher education, roughly 5.7% of the total population. About 14.6 million of these students were enrolled full-time.

It's a big market. Tribal have developed business in the USA in the Schools Sector and with the Military. As far as I am aware, the new contract in British Columbia is seen as a means of developing links with US universities. It all seems to be part of a plan. I suspect that given the size of Tribal and the way the company operates, growth will be slow but steady, even if they do crack the market. They will make sure they get each university right and that will take time and resources. I understand that in order to qualify to tender for higher value contracts within the USA, it is necessary for foreign companies to have a track record within the country. I don't know the details. I will have to find out, if I can.

I should top up but I'm already fully committed generally. Just my luck. I'm waiting on news on a few. If just one of them comes through in the next week or so, I might be able to release funds. If the progress at this time of year during the past 2 years was repeated, we were due a sharp move North. However, they came on the back of the Autumn updates and the upward push hasn't happened this time. The next report is not due till the Spring. There may be a recovery between now and then, especially if people take advantage of this buying opportunity. Also Tribal has the habit of surprising us with sudden rises for no apparent reason illtud

Since the new growth story emerged in 2012 this is the first major correction in a 40p band, maybe 200p is a round number that will take some effort to get through...hopefully c.160p is support and a good buy point.

You're welcome. I'm a struggling learner so thanks for your pointers to Ichimoku. It looks like a lot of buys in the 160s late on. Closed at 166.75. illtud (An ancient Celtic warrior/priest/teacher)

Illtud, On the monthly Ichimoku there are three LT supports: ~Blue line ~Red line ~Cloud: top and bottom There is an Ichimoku Resource Centre thread which has links to educational videos: http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=26755696 The price targets of 230p and 370p are old swing highs, that is why I am referencing them.
