Decision Support

    With data from every corner of campus, HelioCampus enables decision support and insights for institutions to drive student success and grow revenue, maximize returns of academic programs, understand online classroom activity, and manage costs and streamline operations through an enterprise technology platform and ongoing services.

    We combine data with ongoing professional services to help institutions better understand the connections through easily navigated data models and visualizations. Products organized by subject area can be implemented independently or leverage the power of the platform when interconnected to make more informed decisions.

    The complexity of the technology, combined with the need to move ahead rapidly, and the success of the pilot, really fueled the university wanting more. We chose to partner with HelioCampus as opposed to building our own solution because what they provided was probably where we would have been in three to five years. We couldn't wait.

    Michael Cipriano , Associate Vice Chancellor & CIO, UMass Lowell

    UMass Amherst understands the value of analytics and has already made investments in this area. We are looking forward to working with HelioCampus to help us refine institutional decision making and focus on student success.

    Steve Goodwin, Deputy Chancellor and Chief Planning Officer, UMass Amherst

    I think the key to our progress has been that we have become more collaborative throughout the university. HelioCampus and the dashboards we have developed through our partnership have really elevated our ability to be transparent; today, everybody is seeing the same information and our decision-making processes are much clearer to everyone. I think our story is about change and leadership, but also it’s about the importance of data for what we’re trying to do as an institution.
