1 + 1 = 3; native and SUMS announce partnership

With a new year comes a new partnership for native and The Students’ Union Management System (SUMS). SUMS and native customers are set to benefit from a fully integrated solution, coming in the Spring of 2023, in good time for the 2023/24 academic year.

Together, these two student-centric organisations have an impact far greater than just two businesses working in partnership. Their combined capabilities will elevate Students’ Unions to be more efficient, more economically viable, and provide a greater experience to students themselves.

native’s Campus Events Platform combines advanced event listing, management and reporting capabilities that build on SUMS’ core platform, which helps Students’ Union teams to organise and utilise student membership data.

Aligned by mission, both companies strive to support student engagement and deliver a first class experience for the end user, students. 

Speaking on the partnership, native’s CEO and founder, Nick Musto said:

We are thrilled to be partnering with SUMS and working more closely with their talented team. The synergies are clear, and together we look forward to empowering their twenty Students’ Union partners with powerful technology to better engage students - and ultimately, improve the student experience.

Both parties are committed to driving positive change in the sector, to evolve with the ever-changing student wants and needs. 

James Brooks, CEO of SUMS agrees “We recognise the work native does on behalf of Students’ Unions to bring exciting and innovative event content to the student marketplace.  This exciting new partnership, a first for SUMS, means that our users of the SUMS system can now choose to access native events capabilities and content through our platform.”
