The support and customer service around eSpirALS has been terrific. There is always someone around to discuss any questions and run through how to navigate aspects of the system. All of the support from the team over the last few years has helped us to ensure accurate recording of our ALS data.

The quality assurance process of the ALS provision is facilitated by the features and functionalities of eSpirALS Mobile which lightens the workload of the entire ALS team. eSpirALS allows us to work more effectively by spending less time on administrative tasks and maximising the time supporting the learners.
