Santa Barbara-based Governet has won a contract to provide its curriculum software to the entire countrywide system of the United Arab Emirates Higher Colleges of Technology.
Governet’s software, CurricUNET, is a Web-based system that automates the once paper-intensive process of developing and approving new courses in higher education. Seventy-four of 112 community colleges in California are now using it, and 35 of 45 Illinois community colleges are in the system. In all, Governet has more than 250 schools signed up.
“Our approach now is that while we still sell to individual colleges, we now go after entire states and, with the UAE, entire countries,” said CEO George Tamas. “It’s our first countrywide deal.”
