PwC Integrated Education Management Solution (IEMS)


PwC has a long-standing history in the education sector across the globe and has invested significantly in developing digital solutions specifically designed for this sector’s unique needs and requirements. Against a backdrop of reduced government funding, an urgent need to improve access to quality higher education amidst a burgeoning youth population, and increased challenges in attracting and retaining talented faculty staff, the need to re-imagine higher education has never been greater. 

With our experience in the education sector both locally and globally, we foresaw the need for digital transformation and technology adoption in the sector. We are pleased to introduce our Integrated Education Management System (IEMS), specifically designed and developed for higher education institutions. Our IEMS solution provides distinct value drivers that will support you in achieving your ambitions and objectives.

IEMS is an AI-enabled, agile, robust and intuitive education suite that aims to solve key problems that higher education institutions face by providing organisational efficiency and bringing all the stakeholders under one platform.

Issues you may be facing

When deploying the full suite:

  • Students get insightful information through a comprehensive portal and mobile app that makes learning fun, collaborative, and personalised. 

  • Faculty can monitor student performance and take steps to enhance student success rates, and optimise their time by improving the quality of education instead of being stuck in mundane administrative tasks. 

  • Administrative staff can manage support functions on a single platform for the seamless running of day-to-day operations. 

  • Finance staff no longer need consultants to assist with tax calculations and VAT apportionment calculations and can provide funders and donors with accurate and timely reports on research projects.

  • Auditors can rely on the IT security and the general controls environment, as well as access system ready reports and data, and thus find more efficient ways to do the audit.

    Management gets access to actionable insights that facilitate key decision-making. 

IEMS empowers its stakeholders with performance tracking, automated communications, dynamic reporting, and data-driven decision support to improve efficiency and academic performance. IEMS helps to enhance the brand value and provides an edge over the competition.

IEMS implementation models

SaaS Model: Subscription model, hosted by PwC

This approach frees you from managing the infrastructure and is largely driven by the number of users.

Perpetual Model: Fixed-fee model, hosted by you

This is a once-off fixed fee with ongoing maintenance and an unlimited number of users.

Support and Maintenance

Both models cater for support and maintenance.

Additional automation

Given our experience in the sector, we are aware of the system limitations that give rise to auditing or regulatory compliance challenges and drive the cost of compliance up, especially within universities and colleges. We are able to assist with the automation of processes such as conflict checks, VAT apportionments and research articles claims, thus easing auditing processes and helping to drive compliance costs down.

The implementation of IEMS presents an opportunity to automate these processes, driving to lower costs and strengthening controls and compliance.
