Grabow & Kiss Software partners with Intuitive to deliver higher education evaluation solution to mainland Europe
Partnership creates ‘first of its kind’ self-service module evaluation software for German, Austrian and Swiss higher education institutes.
German-based Grabow & Kiss Software GmbH (www.grabowkiss.de) has partnered with UK-based Intuitive Business Intelligence to launch module evaluation solution, FI Education, to German, Austrian and Swiss higher education (HE) providers. FI Education is the first of a family of software automation products being launched by Grabow & Kiss over the next year.
FI Education allows HE institutes to quickly and easily evaluate their modules using customised student surveys and questionnaires. Instant feedback on areas such as quality of teaching, pass rates and module attendance can be provided, helping institutes to raise standards and more easily meet their goals.
FI Education is a robust, flexible and highly scalable solution (built within the Electric Paper Developer Network using EvaSys survey automation technology from Electric Paper Evaluationssysteme GmbH). Using the integrated Intuitive Dashboards solution from Intuitive Business Intelligence, the survey results and other key performance indicators (KPIs) are displayed in a graphical, interactive dashboard format that is exceptionally easy-to-understand and customise. With FI Education, German, Austrian and Swiss HE institutes now have access to a ‘first of its kind’ self-service module evaluation solution.
Wolfgang A. Grabow, Managing Director from Grabow & Kiss Software GmbH, says, “We have teamed-up with ‘best of breed’ technology provider, Intuitive Business Intelligence, to build a module evaluation solution that is incredibly easy to use. Unlike other systems on the market, faculty and teaching staff can be up-and-running with our software extremely quickly and can readily customise the surveys, dashboards and reports to suit, creating a user-friendly solution. We have recognised a clear demand for FI Education across Europe.”
FI Education has three main components – Import, Portal and Export. The Import component harnesses key data from the HE Institute’s systems to create student surveys and questionnaires. The Portal, which has visual components powered by Intuitive Dashboards, uses a library of ‘out of the box’ pre-packaged dashboards to provide survey and KPI feedback in an easy-to-understand, graphical layout. The dashboards are accessible via PCs, tablets and smartphones. Finally, the Export component places the survey results into a reporting format, which is then distributed to stakeholders for analysis and review.
Tony Bray, Managing Director from Intuitive Business intelligence, says, “It is exciting to be part of a project that involves the launch of a module evaluation solution that is unlike anything else on the German, Austrian and Swiss markets. By harnessing Intuitive’s technology, Grabow & Kiss Software has developed a solution for higher education providers that is tailored to their needs and extremely easy to use. Its customisable features also makes it a cut above competitive solutions, providing it with self-service qualities so that users no longer need to rely on the expertise of their IT departments.”
