KEYS TO SUCCESSFUL ANALYTICS

Fueled by our experience in both the private sector and university settings, we've attributed our success to several principles:

Know your clients.

We know higher education. Our company began as part of a University initiative, and most of our team worked in higher education prior to joining. We understand the unique challenges institutions face, and have direct experience helping overcome them.

Transparency and openness.

When we started out we didn’t want a black box and we assumed the market doesn’t either. We believe in a flexible model and an extensible platform to complement and extend your existing investments.

Strive for high value analyses. 

Enable your talent to focus on the work they love and leave the rest to us. Show them the art of the possible.

Focus on the fundamentals.

There is a clear order of operations to build an analytics capability and make an impact at an institution. It's hard to skip steps on this journey and succeed.

Eliminate blind spots.

Institutions need visibility into the connections between enrollment, student success and institutional financial data. Without it, there is too much information left in the periphery, allowing institutional blind spots to persist.

Technology, alone, isn't the answer.

Technology will never facilitate a cultural evolution. Technology will never combat institutional inertia. Technology will never build relationships across university departments. It’s the people who play the most critical role.

“They offer a solution that doesn't require internal knowledge. They don’t set up and then leave--they provide ongoing support. It was a no-brainer. We didn’t go with a traditional player, we didn’t have a huge investment in another product. I was able to convince the VPs that this was a good direction for us to go in.”
