Creative Computing’s Higher Education Advanced Dashboard User Portal “HEADs UP” Solution

admissions-officeHigher education institutions are under tremendous pressure to manage enrollment more efficiently, increase student retention, and increase donor contributions, among other challenges.  While there are numerous decisions to make, the challenge is to access the right data, collect it, integrate it, analyze it and most importantly … share one version of the truth – quickly! But with disparate data sources, millions of student records, lack of institutional standards, and the need for quick insights as core issues, where do you begin?

Institutions are now turning to analytics to deliver smarter outcomes; but rather than scouring data for hours, a simplistic and intuitive view of the collected data can now be presented using Creative Computing’s HEADs UP (Higher Education Advanced Dashboard User Portal).  We call it, “one version of the truth”.
