Active Dashboards beats competition to be supplier of choice
Dynistics are delighted to announce winning the contract to provide dashboard software and support to City of Glasgow College.
Formed in 2010 from the merger of Central College Glasgow, Glasgow Metropolitan College and the Glasgow College of Nautical Studies, City of Glasgow College is now one of the largest colleges in Scotland. Providing a wide portfolio of over 2,600 further and higher education courses, the college is home to almost 30,000 students from 135 different countries.
The college recognised the importance of making informed decisions and driving performance improvements through high quality business intelligence and access to real-time information and trend analysis presented in an easy to use graphical format.
For their tender, the College identified a number of key operational areas that could benefit from an integrated dashboard software solution, including student success, achievement and retention rate trends, finance and funding, apprenticeships, teaching and learning quality, governance, curriculum planning and estates utilisation. And they were keen to choose a solution that could easily be applied to all other areas of reporting throughout the college.
Integration with and the ability to report from their existing core applications – including UNIT-e, Wealden, Enquirer & TeQuios- as well as being adaptable enough to allow integration and extraction from any database was of paramount importance. The solution needed to be flexible enough to allow for role and permission based dashboard views, with the ease of use and ability to enable staff to develop and implement their own performance measurement dashboards.
Functionality aside, the college were specific in their desire to work on a partnership with a tried and trusted supplier to the college sector in order to ensure the potential strategic benefits of implementing a dashboard software solution would be rapidly realised.
‘We’re absolutely thrilled we won the City of Glasgow contract’, said Bill Pease, Head of Operations & Delivery from Dynistics. ‘With our deep knowledge of the college sector, and a proven track record of 50+ successful college dashboard implementations, we know we’re best placed to support the college achieve their goals’.
