I’m Michael Burgess and I am the Director of Education Resource Options.

I have long planned for a meeting place where Schools and Providers can come together to settle on quotes for goods and services and both parties achieve a good deal.

For me there was no better software platform than that designed by Frogponds Software to achieve my aim of making ERO work for each of you

Modern Work Space


In 2003 I graduated from Notre Dame University with a Masters in Electronic Commerce; the first step of my journey to work on my digital pathway.


As a School Administrator for thirty two years I witnessed the frustrations of searching for goods and services and finding the right supplier of those goods.

I have had the opportunity to work with a few industries, friends and sales representatives to:

  • Be the first school in Australia in 2003 to commence an online store

  • To establish a working party with the WA Public Transport Authority to coordinate an opportunity to use the back of the Smart Rider card as a student library card

  • In 2008 to work with Fuji Xerox to establish an on line enrolment process and to commence a Data Management System.

  • Have presented at Edutech on Data Management strategies

  • Have presented to both ASBA and EducatePlus State conferences on Marketing and Social Media platforms and digital storage

I have been able to have many opportunities to listen, discuss and understand what suppliers and Schools are after and hence some six years ago I commenced the journey to Education Resource Options.

I am ready to travel the virtual path with you.
