Lack of insight into enrollment data: Enrollment data is some of the most valuable information your college holds in its armory. Understanding the breakdown of student numbers by demographic and social status is key to successful planning and recruitment. But if your enrollment data is trapped in cumbersome static reports then the information can be difficult to navigate and quickly becomes out of date, meaning you lose out on valuable insights that could change the way you run your institution.
Maintain standards when budgets are shrinking: Running an effective educational institution is not just about admissions and classes, it's about managing hundreds or thousands of employees doing jobs like ground work, construction, teaching, system administration - the list goes on. When data for each of these areas is stored in disparate systems it can be hard to see the big picture, which you need to make the decisions that enable you to run an efficient operation and squeeze the most out of a shrinking budget.
Failing to detect admissions trends early: Attracting and retaining students and improving rankings is crucial for any institution. Colleges and universities are under constant pressure to perform at a high level and to demonstrate successful academic outcomes. This is critical to secure their future, yet without a complete overview of admissions it can be hard to spot trends early that could, if left unaddressed, have a huge impact on the medium to long term success of the institution.
