This application has become a benchmark for the university community, it is continually growing, whose updated versions incorporate new features for every UMH group.

This service is also charged with developing and maintaining all applications referring to the handling and management of information on academic, economic, administrative, and research levels, as well as the Moodle-based UMH virtual campus, the Miguel Hernández University of Elche website, www.umh.es, and the platform of multi-service blogs based on WordPress.
