CELCAT® Scheduling software is a world leader in timetabling software. A Windows® Application (or a feature rich web interface (including Safari compatible)) enables our customers to construct efficient timetables. A Timetable is not about the quality of the education. It supplements the education process and makes the student experience one that they want to keep coming back to. CELCAT Users maintain control over the entire scheduling process through permission based credentials. Institutions will be able to plan timetables that optimise resources to a high level of utilisation needed in the modern teaching space environment. Construction of a clash free timetable is not easy, but with CELCAT the timetable process will be efficient and effective. Choose between an automated solution, a manual solution or a combination of both. Harness the power of the automation scheduler to room or even complete the timetable. Resource based constraints will provide the outcome based on factual data.A poor timetable will not attract students or staff .

CELCAT® technology is based on years of development experience providing a scheduling package that is used on over 30 countries. Whether a University, TAFE or Private college, CDS® and CELCAT® have a solution that will fit and work in your environment. Timetables created for Staff and Students is completely dynamic so actions completed are immediately clash checked. Automation allows for a post scheduling engine view and assessment of the timetabled outcome. Room optimisation can be set to your requirements in the Automation process. Scheduling is about optimising resources and that is CELCAT® core functionality. Increase student numbers due better use of space.

CELCAT® and TechnologyOne® Student Management System are now fully integrated without the need for Third Party Software. CDS has worked the past few years with TechnologyOne to produce a dynamic integrated solution.



Attendance Windows and Web versionsinclude the ability to mark using competencies in Clustered modules. Live (CELCAT Web) version includes immediate attendance percentage calculations, photos and mark history. Remove  paper based registers and use the CELCAT complete electronic solution with instant reporting, alerts when students are absent, alerts to staff of their registers not marked and so much more. Web Attendance is fully integrated to CELCAT Timetabler so creating events creates the registers.

Attendance tracking is also important for actual room utilisation based on attendance data. CELCAT can run Planned vs Actual Reports to see how the rooms are being occupied.



CELCAT Live is the web version of CELCAT Timetabler. (CELCAT Live does not include Automation or Reporting). Timetabler  Live enables users to enjoy an interface similar to CELCAT Timetabler Client but within a web browser. Using a web service to deploy timetabling allows organisations to allow access to CELCAT across multiple web platforms such as Windows® and Mac® and conveniently manage upgrades.

A web interface for timetabling allows sites to deploy easily and cost effectively to users on a variety of web browser platforms.

CELCAT Resource Scheduling

Getting value for a CELCAT site licence dollar is not just about the price you pay for the software.  In fact, if the comparisons were done that way, CELCAT would be a long way in front just on price alone. Some Student Management Systems(SMS) have a timetabling package included. These are generally poor offerings as it is the SMS that is the flagship not the scheduling package. Our timetabling solution enables TAFEs, Universities or VET sector to optimise resources, monitor staff usage, and improve staff and student information. Integrate to existing SMS using CELCAT System Integration Manager giving the best solution of  SMS data feeding to a full featured CELCAT scheduling system and back. Logging of clashes enables Administrators to see timetable issues and provide advice clashes including accepting or reassigning the clash.
