-- Scientia, the global leader in timetabling and resource management solutions for the Higher Education sector, has announced a partnership with Intuitive Business Intelligence, the author of multi-award winning business intelligence (BI) dashboard solution, Intuitive Dashboards. Scientia will offer client institutions a range of dynamic dashboards, specifically designed to put essential real-time information at the fingertips of key decision makers by displaying complex data in a visually engaging, easy to interpret format enabling users to benefit from faster, more accurate decision-making.
Out of the box dashboards include a comprehensive analysis of teaching delivery and space utilisation across departments, teaching days, sites, buildings and rooms as well as instant visibility of overall student registrations against available course places to help with future planning, particularly effective during the clearing process. Scientia’s dashboards provide those in leadership positions with the ability to closely monitor key performance metrics at a high level and to quickly drill down to get to the heart of any underlying issues. An intuitive suite of alerts are also available to warn of potential business issues and performance shortfalls. Dashboards present information quickly and clearly in a personalised format that best suits the user’s needs, offering a true self-service solution.
The solution leverages the proven capability of Intuitive’s award-winning Business Intelligence solution that has already been successfully deployed in numerous educational establishments, including Nottingham Trent University and Harper Adams University, plus a range of other sectors to deliver a variety of notable business benefits. The scalability of the technology allows data from other sources and applications such as student records, finance and HR applications to be published, shared and monitored via a single real-time viewpoint, further supporting institution-
wide performance management, reporting and planning.
Mohamad Djahanbakhsh, Scientia Group CEO, commented, “Our focus is always on delivering solutions that make it easier for our clients in Higher Education to meet their strategic objectives, and to improve student satisfaction and retention. The business of Higher Education becomes ever more complex and key decisions need to be made quickly, and on the basis of real information and knowledge. The new Scientia Dashboards will assist leadership in Higher Education institutions in their decision-making, providing dynamic and easy to interpret access to the important student, staff and resource analytics that is at the heart of our scheduling and optimisation solutions. We’re delighted to be working with Intuitive Business Intelligence to achieve this.”
