Awarding Organisation Management System

You need software which is reliable and robust. We consider Parnassus to be the Audi of the market - built to last and capable of eating up the miles. Here are some numbers to back up this statement: one client processes 250,000 learners per year across 70 countries around the world with tens of thousands of centre users; another client uploads registration files of tens of thousands of learners; another client prints batches of tens of thousands of certificates in peak periods; across our complete client base we estimate that Parnassus stores 25 million learners and supports 100,000 users. Does any other AO software come close to this capability? Please contact us if you would like to talk to any of our clients.

Hosting Solutions

Otherwise this option includes all the functions of the Enterprise Edition ...

Dynamic Reporting

All awarding organisations need to submit reports to regulatory bodies and Parnassus provides standard reports for bodies such as DCSF, Ofqual, UCAS and the reports commonly known as Forvus or Bath data. Many more are provided as well - in addition with a facility to build additional reports for internal or external consumption - either paper reports or for exporting to Excel or for electronic data interchange (EDI, csv, xml, xls etc).
