Vocational training provider selects Intuitive Dashboards for visualisation and trend analysis of student attendance and campus performance.
Essex-based vocational training provider, Prospects Learning Foundation, has selected multi award-winning Business Intelligence (BI) dashboard solution, Intuitive Dashboards, to deliver quick and easy visualisation of its management data, ensuring critical KPIs including student attendance and campus performance are efficiently monitored, eliminating manual data preparation and manipulation. The dashboard solution, from Intuitive Business Intelligence, seamlessly integrates with Prospects Learning Foundation’s current management information system, PICS from Pellcomp, providing busy managers with instant Web-based access to real-time data, enabling instant identification of trends and opportunities across its wide variety of classes, campuses and individual learners.
Stewart Lindsay, Executive Manager (Strategy, Policy and Performance), Prospects Learning Foundation, comments, “In order to maintain our position as a leading provider of vocational training, it’s vital that we have an accurate and real-time perspective of the organisation at all times. Implementing Intuitive Dashboards has enabled us to gain a single, consolidated viewpoint of all of our critical management information including student admissions and figures, course and campus performance and through its exceptional drill-down functionality, we can even access the attainment of individual learners.
“In addition to providing unprecedented transparency of KPI data and measurements, Intuitive Dashboards has also eliminated the need for manual data manipulation inherent with our management information system. Historically, managers would spend time preparing reports to present at monthly leadership meetings; this requirement is now redundant, with managers remotely logging into their dashboards during the meeting for up-to-the minute and much more meaningful perspectives of their live data. We based our selection of Intuitive Dashboards on a recommendation from another vocational training provider and the solution has far exceeded our expectations. The ease and usability of Intuitive Dashboards has been exceptional and as a result, we are planning further roll outs in the next 12 months across our timetabling software CELCAT and accounting software Sage.”
With an expanding workforce, Prospects Learning Foundation demanded an easy-to-interpret, centralised, single point of entry, which could be remotely accessed by staff without the need for specialist technical or analytical skills. With a customisable and graphical interface, Intuitive Dashboards enables business users to easily visualise the data relevant to them, for faster and more insightful decision-making.
Roger Stocker, Sales Director at Intuitive Business Intelligence, says, “In order to meet the high standards expected of a leading training provider, Prospects Learning Foundation demanded a solution which would provide new insight into its ongoing performance across a broad range of areas. Intuitive Dashboards has empowered managers with instant access to the data important to their role, ensuring they are positioned to respond immediately to any trends or shortfalls before they impact upon the business.
“The time saved on producing management reports also ensures managers can concentrate on analysing up-to-the-minute data for informed decision-making, rather than responding to historical and out-of-date reports. We’re delighted to welcome Prospects Learning Foundation to our ever-growing base of education and training sector clients.”
