"The database Pelican Computing created is an invaluable tool for the work we do on the organization of professional placements for the Primary PGCE trainees. The school placement allocation process is a complex one which takes into consideration a number of different factors that the database allows us to track. It has been in use since 2008 and since then Pelican Computing has always been available to help with any queries or requests we might have, such as updating it to run with Windows 10."
