Welcome to Athena MIS, we've been waiting for you to visit!

Management Information System for Training Providers.

If you're new to delivering as a lead provider or considering taking the leap from using the ESFA's Learner Entry tool, then you've come to the right place!

Searching for the right Management Information (MI) system for your business can be stressful, time consuming and costly especially if you don't make a fully informed decision.

Using an MI system is an investment in your business and shouldn't be considered as being just another way of creating ILR's! Not only that but choosing the right MI provider could dramatically change the way you run your business too, after all it's not all about the software but the support you know is there if you need it.

Our support extends far beyond the simple mechanics of the software, we're here to give as much support as you need or even just a little hand holding until you get up to speed.

We DON'T believe in charging for additional user accounts but DO believe the benefits Athena MIS brings should be accessible business wide, with you controlling the role based user accounts and not us!

An MI system which provides a business wide approach to data management empowers you to make the changes you need for all staff to be on board with stategy, policy, procedure and compliance while promoting growth, quality and buisness transparency.

Take a look at how Athena MIS compares with other systems and switch the focus from investing in 'just' a software application to an investment in YOUR business!

Check out the table below for a quick comparison between the Learner Entry tool and Athena MIS.
