CAFM/Estates Systems


The current Estates management system (WREN) is approaching the end of its useful life and there is an opportunity to introduce a new, more robust, system.

There are a number of business critical University services that run through the system, including managing our buildings, scheduling and logging essential building maintenance as well as supporting critical health and safety processes, data and security operations.

This project, with a budget of around £1m, aims to reduce the risk of system failure by replacing WREN with a modern CAFM system.


  • Sustainable support model for a key University solution
  • Compliance
  • Reduced system complexity.
  • Reduced risk of disruption to Campus operations
  • Opportunity for significant process efficiency through a fit for purpose solution

Strategic alignment

  • Mitigation of Known Risk – technology risk
  • Risk and Compliance – health and safety, security, legal (particularly GDPR compliance)
  • Operational efficiency
