Planeta Formación y Universidades and Microsoft extend their technological alliance in Latin America by implementing their innovative project in response to educational needs
Planeta Formación y Universidades and Microsoft Spain are making progress in their strategic alliance with the implementation in Colombia of an innovative comprehensive educational management system based on Microsoft technology. IBERO Corporación Universitaria Iberoamericana will incorporate this new educational management tool that will provide comprehensive support to students and guide them in their academic career.
IBERO students and potential students will benefit from personalised assistance and monitoring throughout their educational experience, with a high standard of quality, from selection, enrolment and incorporation, as well as during their academic period and once they have completed their studies.
This new system also aims to add value to students through personalised academic guidance throughout their entire educational career. Through this alliance, Planeta Formación and Universidades places IBERO at the forefront of the most innovative higher education centres in the world with cutting-edge technology in academic management.
For Fran García, Director of Education at Microsoft Spain: "We are delighted with how this relationship between Microsoft and Planeta Formación y Universidades, which is already several years old, is reaching beyond our borders and how Dynamics 365 allows them to attract students more efficiently, improve their experience throughout their studies and maintain ongoing relationships with the alumni community".
For Andrea Pulido, general manager of Planeta Formación y Universidades LATAM: "We continue to make very satisfactory progress together with Microsoft in providing a technological response to the needs of current educational models in higher education, as well as optimising the University's interactions with students throughout their training cycle, so that students remain at the centre of our strategy, now also in Colombia".
The group's objective is to deploy this tool in all educational institutions in Spain, Europe, USA, Latin America and North Africa and thus reach more than 120,000 students worldwide.
80% of the institutions belonging to Planeta Formación and Universidades in Europe, in Spain, France and Italy, already have this new integrated academic management system from which all their students benefit. It is expected that by 2024 it will be implemented in 100% of the educational institutions in the Planeta Formación y Universidades network worldwide.
