Empired lands multimillion-dollar Microsoft education deal

Perth-headquartered solution provider Empired has won a multimillion-dollar contract with Catholic Education Western Australia to develop a Microsoft-based solution to drive its digital transformation.

The Administration of Schools platform will integrate a set of learning tools, educational software, storage, communication, collaboration, student management systems and a professional learning and development environment.

The solution will serve 80,000 students covering 170 CEWA school and office locations.

“We are excited by the transformational benefits and impacts the Leading Lights program will have on the Catholic education community throughout Western Australia and look forward to working with Empired as a key partner,” said Aidan McCarthy, Catholic Education’s head of digital transformation.

Empired managing director Russell Baskerville said: “The opportunities for digital transformation in education are extensive and we are delighted to have the privilege of working with CEWA to deliver core parts of their Leading Lights technology program.”

In an announcement posted to the ASX, Empired confirmed its 1H 2018 financial year EBITDA guidance as being between $7 million and $7.3 million.
