Join the group of leading Universities that are collaborating on EMR and much more to advance the accuracy and value of reporting on space management and other estate management disciplines.
Now in its 3rd year the MUUG group brings together Universities from as far as Sussex to Queens in Northern Ireland. The group are currently working together to refine EMR reporting criteria in IPR3.6. The group meet every 3 months and change venue each time with the hosting University often putting on a tour and refreshments.
The group consisting of 10 Universities has become a close nit team with friendships flourishing across experts in various fields of property management. The group clearly demonstrates Micad’s commitment to ensuring we work closely with our client base to understand their challenges and desires for better property management software in the future.
The group is paving the way for there to become a Micad4 education variant of the Micad software which will contain the key reporting functions that the Higher Education sector require.
Micad is used by 16 leading Universities and the MUUG group membership includes; Cambridge, Birmingham, Newcastle, UEA, Sheffield, Leicester, Sussex, Goldsmiths, Queens Belfast and Ulster university.
Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) has the 4th largest student population in the UK with over 25,000 students. This number has grown significantly over the past decade and the Facilities Directorate have invested £100m in the estate over this period and a further £110m is being invested over the next 3 years. Managing the estate has always presented challenges but as Mark Swales (Director of the Facilities Directorate) explains, it also provides great opportunity for investing in sustainable solutions that help drive efficiency and create an environment that will influence greatly why students would choose to study at SHU.
