Helping to capture accurate student data

Existing data can also be cleansed to check if the data is valid, and where possible correct it.

Each student studying at the college between 16 and 18 years old effectively provides us with £5,000 per annum of vital funding, whilst students over 18 provide £2,000. Preventing one or two students from slipping through the net more than covers the cost of email and phone validation from AFD. From sales through to support, all the team at AFD Software are friendly and quick to respond to any queries we have. The length of time we have relied on The Postcode People at AFD is a testament to their skills and expertise.
