Solutions for Registration and Academics

Transform your transfer credit evaluation into a digital experience with forms and screens for your faculty and staff to evaluate unarticulated courses. Starting with the incoming transcript check your existing articulation database for matches. Unmatched courses are researched by the course catalog for the course description. Courses are electronically routed to the appropriate department which reviews the description and provides the equivalent course in a form. That course is then routed back to the articulation database so that the next time that course is presented, it can automatically be matched. Once all courses have been evaluated, notifications can be sent and documentation can be stored. The solution has the ability to notify the department reviewers, which sometimes can be faculty, via email and automatically send reminders via email.

Email notifications can be sent to other departments like Financial Aid or Academic Advising as well as the faculty and student.

When it comes to graduation, there are several processes where automation can simplify and speed up the application for graduation processes. The actual application for graduation initiates a request for a degree audit with an advisor and routes through reviews, meetings, and audits to ensure the students' academic transcript is accurate and meets all requirements of the degree program.

Then there is the actual graduation ceremony for which an institution needs to know who is going to walk in the ceremony, name pronunciation, cap and gown sizing, seat reservations and so many other things that go into making the ceremony a success for each student. Add automation to forms to capture the correct information, confirm participation, accept agreements, and send reminders all through an automated platform.

College campuses often have spaces that need to be reserved for use. Along with the physical space, there are other requests that go along with the reservation like AV equipment, seating, tabling, and even catering services. These requests could come from the general public (weddings, photoshoots, anyone?) but they likely will come from student groups (clubs, Fraternities & Sororities) and even from faculty and staff who need to hold meetings on-campus. Create event request forms that cross multiple departments and have multiple screen and form interactions that are displayed or signed and then automatically route, keeping track of the entire request in one place.

Solutions for Human Resources

Onboarding your faculty and staff can be systematized into a step-by-step automated process that each employee is guided through, ensuring that every required step is completed and logged. Present them with forms, tasks, and checklists, capture signatures and acknowledge agreements or policies. Add additional sub-processes for faculty, including subsequent re-onboarding activities for those part-time/adjunct faculty that “swirl” in and out of your institution.

Offboarding can also be transformed by automation where actions take place on an effective date. Send notifications to various departments on campus such as IT, Safety and Security, HR, and more with specific checklists to decommission user accounts, collect badges, parking cards, etc. Log all steps with timestamping to improve visibility and ensure compliance. Closeout adjunct/part-time faculty who may temporarily stop work for long periods of time.

Student employment is challenging and often neglected by most commercial HR/HCM systems. Students often have multiple jobs on campus, some moving from position to position depending on the time of year (summer jobs, anyone?). This creates a need for adequate processes to accommodate that first-time job on your campus, but also each additional job that the student performs until they graduate. Create off-boarding processes to handle when a student stops out of a job before starting their next assignment.
