Software supplier Agresso has agreed a deal with the Queensland government that will see it provide its student finance technology solution in support of the state’s ‘smartclassroom’ initiative.

Queensland’s department of education and training claimed that the technology would offer a "holistic picture" of each student in the form of a OneSchool student record, thereby deepening relationships between students and teachers and "supporting improved learning outcomes", ITWire.com reported.

Meanwhile, Agresso’s chief executive John Catarinich said the software would be able to manage the financial transactions of more than 400,000 students across the Queensland school network, encompassing over 1,200 schools.

It is hoped the estimated $7 million deal with Agresso will provide a highly secure, reliable and low-maintenance information and technology platform that can be accessed by teachers and administrative staff anywhere and at any time.

Such news may interest Aussies looking to compare student finances in search of the best options. Last week, the Melville Times reported that morale among staff at Murdoch University in Perth is at an "all-time low" amidst rumours of an estimated $20 million debt at the institution.
