Australia’s ed-tech landscape has been given a dramatic shake-up with key players Synergetic Management Systems and SEQTA Software uniting to create the country’s largest wholly Australian-owned K-12 school administration, teaching and learning software company.

Under the umbrella of Education Horizons, the company leverages SEQTA’s powerful teaching and learning software with Synergetic’s world-class school management products to offer schools a complete end-to-end solution that will truly empower school administration staff and teachers to complete their work efficiently and effectively.

Synergetic currently delivers academic, administrative, fundraising, finance and student management software to more than 690 contracted schools, servicing over 230,000 students and more than 21,000 school staff across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Middle East.

On the back of its multi-award winning teaching and learning management system, the SEQTA Suite, SEQTA currently provides more than 455 schools, 30,000 teachers and 245,000 students and their parents with instant online access to everything they need to effectively play their role in the school’s learning community.

The synergies between Synergetic and SEQTA are not limited to product and this is evident in the quality of their people. Comprising highly qualified, experienced and long-standing staff, the level of expertise, product knowledge and capacity to deliver first class customer service is abundant. Both companies share a strong and value-based culture, where quality relationships are a key priority and nurtured.

The formation of EHG is expected to increase business growth prospects and grant wider opportunities to acquire further complementary businesses in the future; building on the exceptional capabilities that its subsidiaries individually offer.

Synergetic Managing Director Tim Dawson said that Education Horizons’ formation marks the beginning of a new era for school management solutions in Australia and beyond.

“Education Horizons will improve the standard for what schools should expect from their chosen software solutions. Synergetic and SEQTA share a common goal of empowering education and educators, and Education Horizons symbolises that. These are exciting times for school software.”

SEQTA founder and Chief Executive Officer Grant Grosser said that amid the partnership’s obvious business benefits, schools were the biggest winners.

“Education Horizons gives schools the unique opportunity to benefit from a fully-integrated, end-to-end software solution which is supported by two, long-standing, reputable companies working together to create the best experience for schools.”

Executive Chairman John Vickers said that the transaction brings together two of the leading minds in the K-12 ed-tech sector in Australia in Tim Dawson and Grant Grosser.

“I have every confidence that Tim and Grant will take Education Horizons from strength-to-strength into the future.”
