Think Education Solutions, a leading supplier of strategic planning and assessment management software solutions, announced a breakthrough in accreditation management with its latest release of Strategic Planning Online. The greatly anticipated update takes significant strides in managing accreditation compliance and the work flow process involved with submitting a compliance report. With an established track record of success in managing strategic planning and assessment efforts at many Colleges and Universities; Strategic Planning Online now offers a complete and robust solution for managing accreditation compliance as part of the continuous improvement effort.

“With improved reporting capabilities and redesign of the compliance workflow process, this new edition of Strategic Planning Online will make managing compliance efforts easier and more efficient than ever before.” said Andrew Davies, CEO of Think Education Solutions. “We have listened to our customers and given them what they need; an easy to use, flexible solution that takes the pain out of preparing compliance documentation”.

Regional Accreditation Bodies Supported by Strategic Planning Online:

  •     HLC/NCA - The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools
  •     NCATE - National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education
  •     NEASC - New England Association of Schools and Colleges
  •     NWCCU - Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
  •     SACS- Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
  •     ACCJC - The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges in the Western region
  •     WASC - Western Association of Schools and Colleges (Senior Colleges and Universities)

Regional accrediting bodies are now requiring higher education institutions to reaffirm accreditation compliance more regularly, driving institutions to manage multi-year versions of standard compliance at a given time. Strategic Planning Online answers this challenge by offering schools a multi-cycle approach to compliance management, ensuring that compliance is an ongoing living process rather than a one-time report preparation process. “By establishing a workflow process, assigning roles and tracking progress in a collaborative environment, we have taken the process of accreditation compliance and continuous improvement to a new level...” said Larry Squarini, Product Manager for Strategic Planning Online. “We offer the best of compliance reporting capabilities and a well defined process to take lessons learned in compliance forward into the planning cycle. This new version of Strategic Planning Online is truly an enabler for institutional change and continuous improvement.”

Many customers of Strategic Planning Online have testified to the importance of the new compliance management features. Robert M. Pultz, Director, OIPRE at Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, FL says “Strategic Planning Online provides a solid, comprehensive platform that seamlessly integrates planning, budgeting, assessment, and accreditation activities. By making complex processes surrounding data collection, distribution, analysis, and reporting easy to use and manage, SPOL encourages campus-wide participation in institutional effectiveness efforts.”
