Allocation of students to class times within today’s tertiary institutions is an increasingly complex and time-consuming process.

Pressure to offer increased services to students, with an ever decreasing and inflexible pool of resources presents a great challenge to administrators. Allocate Plus is the market-leading solution, used by many institutions to meet this challenge.

Allocate Plus supports student preference entry, first come/first serve allocations and hybrid approaches and guarantees clash-free student timetables.

Allocate Plus is constantly under review with regular enhancements being built and released - the majority of them coming directly from the requests of our clients. We continue to improve the solution to make it the premium class registration (allocation) solution in the world.

Created in Melbourne more than 20 years ago, today it is used in more than half of the universities in Australia, including the majority of the G08 Universities and Sandstone Universities, resulting in over 50% of University students in Australia registering for classes through Allocate Plus.

Allocate Plus and your requirements

Consisting of a number of modules, Allocate Plus is a purpose-built platform designed to improve an institution's timetabling environment.

The student experience is improved by providing a mechanism to enable students to view available classes based on their current enrolment and submit their preferences.

Efficiencies for administrators are realised via automated data imports from neighbouring systems. Time-saving ‘sort’ routines automate the allocation process, during which student attributes are collected, ranked and randomised resulting in the student being allocated to a clash-free timetable. 

Students have the opportunity to view their timetable, and if they want to change their allocation or have not been allocated, they may choose from available remaining time slots for an instant allocation.

Allocate Plus also accommodates class swaps requests and waitlists.

Allocate Plus Implementation at RMIT increases student and staff satisfaction rates

RMIT found their custom built class registration process was unsustainable being resource intensive, with limited system integration, causing delays in the timetable being finalised. The original timetabling system was leading to a poor user experience for both staff and students.

Allocate Plus integrated to numerous established systems generating positive student feedback at Allocation opening.

"I have found the engagement, responsiveness, flexibility and professionalism shown by JDR to be 5 stars".

Warrick Burgess, Senior Manager, Timetabling Services, RMIT University
