We are pleased to announce that Jane Systems Ltd is now part of the Juniper Education group, a UK based, specialist Education software and services provider. The acquisition strengthens both organisations and will add exceptional value to new and existing clients.

Nigel Sargent, Director of Jane Systems, said: “We are delighted to be part of the Juniper team, a group of people with aspirations and ideals matching our own who understand and appreciate the unique needs of the education user in the same way we do.  The Jane software portfolio was designed to give trust and school leaders a simple way to manage staff absences, wellbeing, payroll, professional development and salary, offering a welcome alternative to the paper-based functions that still exist in many schools and academies.  To now be able to complement state of the art HR and Payroll tools with award winning support services is a proposition few can offer.”

Juniper Education is a comprehensive Education support service, established to help schools and academies go from strength-to-strength. That’s why over thousands of schools across 20 countries trust Juniper to support them with everything from whole school effectiveness to pupil tracking, HR and finance support and much more.

Gavin Freed, chairman of Juniper Education, said: “For too long, those working in education have been frustrated with having no choice but to work with generic HR solutions that do not fully meet the specific challenges of educational settings.  With school leaders facing multiple staffing complexities, exacerbated by Covid-19 restrictions, having education specific people systems means they are in a better position to offer enhanced support to their teams.  The acquisition of Jane Systems is a decisive step towards our goal of enabling effective people development through a combination of first-class software and services from one specialist education provider.”

The acquisition of Jane Systems expands Juniper Education’s portfolio of innovative software and services for schools and MATs and increases the number of schools using its solutions to over 10,000.

Our founding Directors remain onboard with the team, who are all excited about the next chapter which will mean greater scope for developing services to meet your organisation’s needs. As always, our Support team will be available Monday to Friday (9am to 5pm) and we will continue to offer our full range of services and support.
