How long have you been working on accreditation software?
We started in 2000 as a custom software developer and actually came to accreditation by accident. We’d worked with local accreditors as clients in Washington DC, and we started to realize that we could address a lot of their overlapping needs with a single set of tools. Eventually we sold the customization aspect of our business and began to focus on our accreditation management products and enterprise quality management software, which is similar in many ways.
In November, ARMATURE, visited Engineers Canada to initiate the work we will be embarking on in the coming months. Dave McTaggart, ARMATURE CEO, also took some time to share his thoughts on the company’s past work and its partnership with Engineers Canada.
In November, AIP staff began exploring the new data management system through a series of workshops. These provided valuable knowledge about the system’s features and insight into the potential impacts of using it. The hands-on use of the system marked an exciting moment in the AIP timeline, and a significant first step towards the extensive configuration and testing to come in the following months.
Engineers Canada is pleased to announce its partnership with ARMATURE in the delivery of a new data management system to support engineering education program accreditation and the annual Enrolment and Degrees Awarded Survey. Our sincerest thanks goes to the System Advisory Committee and other stakeholders for their input and feedback throughout the requirements and selection process. We are looking forward to next steps, and will keep you informed as we progress.
We continue to make progress on finalizing the contract with our data management system vendor.
