Bromcom Computers has developed a system that will strike terror into the heart of every school truant. Its electronic register enables teachers and parents alike to track a pupil’s presence throughout the day, updating records instantly on a central computer. Nor can pupils hide their exam results. These are put up on screen, enabling parents to follow their child’s progress over the internet. Bromcom claims that more than 60,000 teachers in 700 schools now operate the system.
Founded in 1986 by a Turkish Cypriot, Ali Guryel, Bromcom focused initially on IT projects for local educational authorities. Sales of the London company have grown 88% a year, from £3.5m in 1998 to £12.3m in 2000.
