Conway, NH (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
Rapid Insight Inc., the leading provider of easy to use predictive analytics and data intelligence software, today announced the launch of an analytic solution specifically aimed at enabling data driven decision making at community colleges.
“Rapid Insight allows our senior management to take the daily pulse of the entire community college system,” said Dr. Ross Gittell, Chancellor of the Community College System of New Hampshire.
The solution, which runs against Banner® by Ellucian™, provides real time institutional metrics for use at every level of a Community College system, from presidents and trustees to faculty and staff. Analytic dashboards are delivered automatically to stakeholders via PC, tablet or smartphone. Key performance indicators include enrollment YTD compared to previous YTD, credit hours sold, program specific metrics and more. The dashboards and analyses can also be customized based on the specific needs of a college. In addition to the out of the box analytics, the solution enables users to run ad hoc analyses, build predictive models, and create unlimited reports.
“The Rapid Insight dashboards are used by so many of the departments within the college. They really help us stay on track, answering important questions like, ’are we doing better than we did last year?’” noted Dr. Susan Huard, President of Manchester Community College.
The QuickStart dashboards are built utilizing Rapid Insight tools, which are designed to connect and integrate data from any source, including student information systems like Banner® by Ellucian™, spreadsheets, text files, as well as external sources such as the National Student Clearinghouse.
“The Rapid Insight dashboards are the first thing that I look at each morning. The information allows me to begin the day knowing where we are as an institution in terms of enrollment data and other critical information about programming,” remarked Dr. Alicia Harvey-Smith, President of River Valley Community College.
