After securing immediate contracts at BETT Asia, Action Starter are demonstrating their HEIApply technology at the UK show which is on now until Saturday.

David Roberts said of the visit

“it was great to talk to Dr Liam Fox. He wanted to make sure his department is providing the support required to grow our business and create jobs in this important sector”

HEIApply empower institutions to enable the ultimate applicant journey. Whether institutions are Schools, FE, HE charities, private sector organisations, they can use the system to manage their online applications.

“We are seeing an upturn in enquiries from overseas and non-traditional providers of education that give us confidence that we have something special here. Our plans are to grow the company, open up offices across key markets and export the great brand of UK education technology”.

Dr Liam Fox was joined by Caroline Wright, Director General British Educational Suppliers Association as they opened and walked around the show.
