“We are in a very safe Place” – Vice-Chancellor

The Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni has expressed his optimism in awarding the contract for the supply of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERPS) to Bsystems Limited.

He said the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) had over the years had several challenges with its previous Information Management Systems starting with the Online Students Information System (OSIS) I through to OSIS II but he was hopeful that the intervention of Bsystems Limited would help solve these challenges once and for all.

The Vice-Chancellor made these remarks on Monday, 15th July, 2019 at his office when a three-member delegation from Bsystems Limited visited the University to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The MOU would regulate the working relationship between the University and Bsystems Limited.

“This is one of the big things that we have been praying and hoping for because it is a landmark achievement in the life of this University. The good news is that, we have had the opportunity through our Director of ICT to speak to University of Ghana (UG), Legon; Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA); and Central University that have operated the system, in the case of UG for about 20 years,” Rev. Fr. Afful-Broni said.

He added that, “I have also had the opportunity to speak to some lecturers who work with this system. So, if you are the same people who are operating the system in Legon and GIMPA, then I would say that we are in a very safe place.”
