The SEMERC brand is alive and kicking and could be coming to a centre near you. SEMERC was famous for providing software and hardware solutions for early years and special needs pupils and its most famous product was probably the My World series which covered everything from design and technology to French vocabulary to the famous Dress the Teddy pack.
Jonathan Thomson, brand director of SEMERC, is about to sign a deal to set up SEMERC centres across England. ‘When we relaunched SEMERC, there was tremendous enthusiasm from our customer base," he says.
"We want local authorities right across the country to have access to our products so users can see our software at a location close to them. We contacted lots of authorities and many expressed an interest. They get free site licences for all SEMERC software and discounted rates on the other products that we sell (across the BLi Education range which includes Tag, Sherston and Economatics).
"We get a geographical spread of centres which can offer open days, twilight training sessions, product support and access to a network of other users who will have fresh ideas and suggestions of how to get the best from our software in the classroom. It looks set to be an exciting collaboration."
Details of the centres will be released late this spring and will be on the newly launched SEMERC website in the summer, so watch out for further information.
