LONDON – 27 January 2021 – Infor today announced that Borders College, a further education institution based in Galashiels, Scotland, has upgraded its investment in Infor SunSystems.

The upgrade to Infor SunSystems 6.4 will ensure Borders College operates from a fully supported platform, reducing the risk of downtime and costly emergency fixes. It will also enable finance, procurement, HR, health and safety, and other back-office functions to be brought into alignment with plans to digitalise student-facing programmes.
“As an existing SunSystems user and Kick ICT customer, we were able to leverage a lot of continuity and establish excellent collaboration between the teams involved in this project,” said Hazel Robertson, Borders College vice-principal for finance and corporate services. “We were struck by the professionalism of Kick ICT and the speed of response around testing, despite everything being done remotely. We are already looking to share our newly developed best practices with other colleges and look forward to even more collaboration in the future.”
Tim Truesdale, Infor SunSystems product director, said: “Many further education establishments are now looking to digitally transform both student-facing and back-office functions. This transformation offers the promise of better services and a much more cost-efficient set of processes.”
“Using tools such as open ‘clinics’ for questions helped Borders move through the upgrade process quickly, even during lockdown,” said Chris Oggelsby, Kick ICT business development manager. “Collaboration in these projects is critical for not only implementation but also uptake and to maximise the return on investment. We look forward to continuing to support Borders as it undertakes its digital transformation programme.”
