Jazz Up Your Legacy and Sweat Your Assets

Jazz Up Your Legacy and Sweat Your Assets

Is your institute running on an old legacy system which you don’t want to replace? You can still sweat your assets and enjoy a modern, updated system without having to change over your legacy. An automated central interface application will integrate different functions of your organisation, helping you to get the most out of your IT system and improve productivity within your business.

A legacy system sits at the centre of the day-to-day operations of an education provider. Having different systems for different areas can become expensive to maintain, hard to operate efficiently and time-consuming to keep updated.


What We Can Do for Your legacy

  • Manage it
  • Support it
  • Interact with it
  • Build third party interfaces to talk to it and import/extract data

PSP-IT is skilled at taking over a legacy system, giving it a fresh, modern feel and making third party interfaces talk to the system and bring all the data together.


Reasons for updating your Legacy System

There are many reasons outdated technology can hurt your organisation. As an education provider, it is essential to update your legacy system to:

  • Integrate functions of your organisation
  • Make work life easier for staff
  • Avoid technical snags which cause disruption to staff and customers
  • Quickly adapt to challenges, such as the recent pandemic
  • Securely hold member, candidate, and financial data
  • Automate manual tasks to save time
  • Make full use of your CRM – PSP provide a depth of maintenance and support


Our Work with Chartered Institutes

PSP-IT has managed and updated legacy systems for the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM) and the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) which manage memberships within the organisations.

Initially, CIPS’ CRM was old, outdated and couldn’t speak to other functions of the institute. Throughout the last few years, PSP has updated CIPS’ legacy system to improve their workplace productivity and improve workflow.

We built a bolt-on system through our VISION CMS to fire data from other systems through to their modernised legacy. The new interface works side-by-side with the original system to provide supplementary support to the legacy system.

The bolt-ons we built enable the legacy to interact with third party applications such as finance, events and exams- something which wasn’t possible before.

The revised system makes the day-to-day operations easier and improves staff efficiency.


Jazz it Up

The expert team at PSP are proven at taking over an old legacy, jazzing it up, modernising it and making all elements of the system talk to each other.

PSP know how to get the best out of legacies and keep them running to their full capabilities. With a team of skilled professionals, we offer strong technical support, and our maintenance costs are comparatively low compared to other system providers.

We have strong experience in the education sector, working with charted and non-chartered institutes with more than 100,000 members. We have supplied software development and support, website design and development, senior level IT support, business analysis support and much more to UK and global awarding bodies.
