Schools and Academies Show 2018

One of the largest shows in the educational calendar, the Schools and Academies Show in Birmingham was the ideal event for school staff looking to elevate their schools’ resources to the next level. Welcoming over 3,000 School, MAT and Council figures from across the UK, the newly rebranded show has expanded its reach to target the wider education sector.

Attended by Tucasi’s Head of Sales Terry Brown, Product Specialists Sara Marsh and Ginny Adams and National Account Manager Janine Lawrence, the day was a true success. There was a fantastic response to the Tucasi modules from both existing customers and new schools. We were glad to hear success stories from schools who are using Tucasi’s software in their daily school operations. Head of Sales Terry Brown commented “The day was a triumph. It was great to meet face to face to show off the true capabilities that Tucasi have”.

For Product Specialists Sara Marsh and Ginny Adams, the event provided the ideal opportunity to show users exactly what they were looking for. Using the demo software on the stand which was fully pre-loaded with Tucasi’s money management software in just a few clicks delegates could visualise and experiment with the in-depth functionalities.
