    Studywiz

    At BETT, Studywiz had advertising on big banners outside and on the doors as you entered but did not show up on the stand they booked. I heard different explanations from people about why they were not exhibiting. Does anyone know what is happening with Studywiz in the UK?

    I would be very intrested in hearing what happened. We have been with Etech for 4 years now.
    What were the rumours floating around?

    Hopefully nothing. We have just started to use our StudyWiz after a long period of waiting.

    I heard all type of rumours from minor things to armagedddon! Don't know what to believe that's why I was asking if anyone knew exactly what is going on?

    It's a bit like the software, promises one thing and delivers another ;-)

    Just heard....

    The UK branch of Etech has entered into voluntary administration.

    This explains the BETT situation!!

    I have heard from two different sources, one of whom showed me a confidential email sent from a local authority to all of its schools. I have looked and could not find anything official from Studywiz/Etech online.

    Hmmm.

    Will this mean we have to go to AUS for support or does it now mean we have no support route (or at least soon to have no support route).

    I have been told that they were doing some financial restructuring ... and they could not commit to anything until is was sorted. Hopefully no-one loses their job under this and that schools with outstanding issues can get sorted.
