A project to replace the current travel requisitioning and approval system (Trobexis) is currently underway. Following a staff survey that gathered feedback on the current system and future needs, a new travel platform (Concur) has been selected for the University.

The OLCR software is used by students to log their class preferences. The University aims to replace OLCR with Allocate+ by Semester 1 2016. Allocate+ will provide a dramatically improved user experience for our students and enhanced functionality for administrative and teaching coordination staff.
