How PEMS benefits your users

Administrative Staff

For Placement Managers, HEI academic staff and admin teams, PEMS is a useful tool for tracking, monitoring and reporting on students’ academic progress all in one place. It supports pre-placement checks, ensuring regulatory standards are maintained.


Students benefit from a simple, paperless system that enables them to quickly update their details and statuses, supporting a stress-free placement management process. No more paper forms, they can access placement information and report attendance using their mobile phone.

External Stakeholders

Placement providers, external bodies, assessors, mentors and supervisors can be permitted secure access to certain functions and reports. Paper forms are eliminated, as placement providers can now perform all the necessary tasks such as audits and student evaluations online.


Organisations which are part of an existing network of institutions or are currently enabled to sell through procurement frameworks can benefit from becoming a PEMS reseller, enhancing their public sector solutions offering with PEMS whilst generating additional revenues.

What Our Customers Say

With staffing costs on the rise and increasing student commissioned numbers, against a backdrop of increasing complexity of placement quality and capacity in health and social care service provision -not to mention the cost of any potential litigation due to poorly-recorded compliance- PEMS made obvious financial sense.

Netta Lloyd-Jones – Head of Practice Education,
Facility of Health and Life Sciences, Oxford Brookes University

PEMS has made life for ourselves and our external partners easier and clearer. The way of sharing and recording information that is specific to our needs has been such a blessing and saves so much time. The reporting tool means our partners can run reports to gather information without coming through us which again takes pressure off the team. The support team are excellent and always deliver exceptionally high customer service.

Janette Willetts – ​Placement Manager​
​Department of Human & Health Sciences​ – University of Huddersfield

The old system we used was stand alone and never up to date. We wanted a system that students and administrators could log into and update themselves. PEMS frees up my time and is so much more simple.

Cath Hayes – Placements Manager,
Facility of Health and Human Sciences, University of Huddersfield

Life is so much simpler with PEMS. If anyone ever took it away, we’d resign the next day! Whenever we call, Oxinet staff are very friendly and supportive. The guys on the helpdesk are always so patient too, even when we feel silly for asking simple questions. The training sessions, especially when there is a new release, are really useful and we will definitely use them again.

Natasha Lloyd – Placement Administrator,
School of Health and Social Care, University of Essex

PEMS is an invaluable member of the administration team.

Netta Lloyd-Jones – Head of Practice Education Oxford Brookes University

I have worked with Oxinet since the infancy of PEMS for Practice placements. We developed a system that met our needs to provide practice placement support to both students, staff and placement providers. The Helpdesk support that Oxinet provide is efficient and reactive to our needs.
