February 2003 - SureCHART to be installed at Hyde

News ID: 86

Abdel Iffakh from the Sure Start programme in Hyde has just confirmed that CHL are the provider of the database system for their use. The decision to award the system to CHL was influenced by a glowing reference from one of CHL's existing SureCHART users - Andrew Blore (Information and Monitoring Coordinator for Sure Start Ashton): "We have been using the CHL SureCHART system for over six months and it has been fantastic. The system supports both the day to day needs of the programme and Sure Start head office requirements. I have found the system easy to use yet flexible enough to respond to changing demands both internally and externally. The level of support given by CHL has been excellent, they respond to any problems the same day and the staff have been very friendly and supportive. I cannot recommended this system highly enough."
