We know it’s important that your delivery system meets your unique needs. We're here to help.

Aptem has allowed us to merge our MIS and our learner portfolio systems into one place, so we can now truly go out and say we have an end-to-end system for our learners and employers. It has also given us our first foray into ePortfolios for our education learners, so that’s a huge step forward. We now have real-time reporting and real-time performance management of our staff.

Ryan Palmer

Director of Quality and Impact

Aptem allows us to onboard learners and complete compliance documents remotely and efficiently, which has been imperative in the current climate and reduced the time spend on admin. With Aptem’s distance learning functionality, we can continue to provide our clients with excellent training online.​

Paul Wileman

CEO

We chose to work with Aptem, after looking at several alternatives, as the entire learning journey (from sign up through to EPA) is embedded into the platform. This saved us money as we could consolidate a number of existing systems in one. Additionally, the investment required demonstrated exceptional value for money and the level of customer service is refreshingly ‘on it’.

Case studies

YMCA

Implementing a solution that can be used across multiple programmes types, including AEB and Apprenticeships.

“The fact that we went live on the day we committed to going live was, for us, a great achievement, particularly given the complexities of the build. From a management perspective, it has given us access to a huge swathe of live reports, something we didn’t have before. And that allows us to have real-time reporting and real-time performance management of our staff.” Ryan Palmer, Director of Quality and Impact, Central YMCA

Strategic decision-making using data

When you use Aptem your data is held centrally, allowing you to easily report and analyse. There are a number of built in reporting tools along with more detailed Power BI Dashboards within Aptem and we’re adding to these all the time.
