bulletautomatically prints the required number of copies of letters;
bulletinstantaneously displays the stage to which a student has progressed in the examination process and what needs to be done before progressing to the next stage  -  answer student queries without having to dig through mountains of paper-work!

BROOMS  -  a network-based room-booking program (with a sense of humor!) especially designed for large organizations with pressure on space and a premium on flexibility that:

bulletEnsures all users can immediately see the availability of any room at any time;
bulletLets users quickly find available space at any time;
bulletAllows users to enter "bids" for available rooms at particular times (both for extended periods, such as a weekly booking over a semester or year, or on a one-off basis).  These bids are processed by a central booking office and the results are automatically received by remote users;
bulletFacilitates ultra-fast searches for rooms and time-slots;
bulletLets remote users view (and sort and/or filter and/or export to another file format, with a just a single button-click or a few keystrokes) all their confirmed bookings;
bulletEasily distinguishes between bookings for the "current" or "next" year;
bulletEnables "priority" over specific rooms for specific users at certain times (a great compromise between "territoriality" and "efficient use"!);
bullet 

TimeTable Direct  -  a timetabling program that takes data straight from the BROOMS program and, with just a few button clicks, and no data entry at all, turns them into a finished timetable, ready for printing or deployment to the World Wide Web. 

Note:  TimeTable Direct comes with a variety of options, including the ability to enter timetable data for rooms not included in the BROOMS program, to enter additional data for timetable display, and to automatically reproduce timetable entries under linked headings.

All of the above programs can be adapted for use in new situations, and we welcome the opportunity to take on new challenges!

No matter how complex the problem, Dynamic Array can find a software solution that will save you time, money and the embarrassment caused by data-entry errors!
