The main focus for ORAC Assess is providing workflows which support administrative staff in the provision a quality service to each student.

To keep our software up to date and reflective of the needs of the centres we support, we employ an agile approach to our software development. This means we can quickly respond to the changing demands of the sector by designing, testing and releasing updates, often within days of being notified of changes by DSA QAG or the funding bodies.

Generating key performance information is a vital aspect of maintaining registration with DSA QAG therefore as standard, ORAC Assess comes with the ability to automatically generate monthly and annual audit returns.
