Education technology and services group Tribal has announced that its order book has grown by nearly a tenth since the end of last year.
In an interim management statement, the group said that at the end of April its order book stood at £193 million – up 9% from £178 million on 31 December 2011.
The firm also described the current year as “a period of further investment”.
The board said that, from the period of 1 January 2012 to 15 May 2012, the firm’s technology business has made “good progress”, citing opportunities to roll out its student management systems in higher and further education.
Internationally, the group reported growth in its business in Australia, New Zealand, the US and the Middle East.
In the UK, its software business performed “satisfactorily”.
Earlier this year Tribal reported its plans to increase investment in its sales and business development capabilities.
And last month, the group announced it had won a contract with the New South Wales Department of Education, with an initial value “in excess” of A$40 million (£27 million). The contract will see the firm’s student management system implemented in primary, secondary and further education establishments in the Australian state.
