Based in Liverpool, Collabco provides digital student engagement platforms for educational establishments and has signed a deal with University College Copenhagen. Tony McDonough reports
Liverpool digital firm Collabco has secured a deal with University College Copenhagen to provide a digital portal for its 20,000 students.
Collabco’s myday platform allows students to access information across any device, anytime, anywhere. Collabco were specifically selected on the strength of their product and its capabilities on mobile and browser as well as offering pilot access (access to test and change the system).
Daniel Taylor, sales director at Collabco, said: “We’ve enjoyed working collaboratively with the project team at University College Copenhagen during the pilot phase and welcome their collaborative approach to delivering a leading student engagement experience.”
The myday platform is a digital dashboard tool used by many leading educational establishments in the UK and across the globe to drive student engagement, participation, and retention. It enables universities, colleges and schools to aggregate the information students need on a daily basis and present it in an intuitive and modern styled interface.
The University College Copenhagen team was able to test the product before deciding if it fit their requirements which gave them and their students an insight into how myday works.
The team is especially excited about the ability to develop new features on the platform and have already taken advantage of the software to turn some ideas into reality. Project manager Louise Lindskov added: “We were looking at building a solution such as myday from scratch.
“However, having spoken to Collabco at Online Educa Berlin we saw the potential and that we could achieve something much quicker. Students needed to have a place to find key information from all of the systems.
“We hadn’t had a mobile app before and myday offered us this as well as our main criteria; being able to test the system. We also liked that Collabco always gave us the time we needed and came to see us in person. We have already built up a good working relationship and we look forward to building upon it.”
