    Been a few years, but we used to use BIST who were really helpful and always made sure they got you the best deal and price for what you want.

    Can't recommend Phoenix Software enough. Not after all the hard work our account manager as done over the past couple of months helping us move to an Academy and setting up EES.

    Been with Ramesys for a few years - it's not just a case of asking for a quote and buying I found as licensing is full of pitfalls so expert advice is what's needed. However, since Capita took them over things haven't been so clear cut.

    Misco also do licensing and our account manager Michael Hinchcliffe at Misco is superb so probably be asking him to quote next time we renew. In this competitive world will also be checking out the other recommendations here.
