UFS to act as agent for Cipal in Southern Africa
2006-03-12

The University of the Free State signed an agreement with Cipal, a Belgium software development company, to act as agent for Cipal in Southern Africa.

The university already utilises the Parnassus software from Cipal under licence since 2004 for among others meetings, compiling the annual report to the Minister of Education and compiling the UFS annual institutional calendar. Four faculties at the UFS also use Cipal products.  The university will market this initiative to other universities as an entrepreneurial project to generate income for the UFS.

At the signing of an agreement were from the left (standing) Prof Sakkie Steyn (Registrar: General at the UFS, Prof Frederick Fourie ( Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS), Mr Leo Stevens (Chairperson of the Cipal Management Council and Board) and Mr Arthur Phillips (Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of Cipal).
