Further education & University solution

All sectors have had to rapidly change tactic since Covid 19, but none more so than education. Although our young adults are perhaps more adaptable than us, this is still a worrying time for them, as career paths seem on hold.

Academics and lecturers don’t just ‘teach’ they provide wise counsel for students – so staying connected has never been more important.

Dynamics 365 is particularly suited to the education sector as it’s a cloud-based platform and can be accessed across all media. Transferring data from teacher to student and vice versa is instantaneous and secure, using Teams and Sharepoint.

Using D365 as a hub for all your data means that HR, Academics and lecturers can all benefit from a see-at-a-glance 360-degree view of each student, from them registering for courses, monitoring course progress, and as alumni.

Take a short survey

We have found that Universities and FE colleges often segway into using disparate systems which are then rapidly outgrown.

Bringing all legacy systems under one platform will simplify processes, reducing unnecessary paperwork, enabling staff to do what they do best - teach.

Why would I choose Dynamics 365 for further & higher education?

Microsoft developed a Common Data Model to include concepts for higher education, which Inturi can then configure for the nuances of your campuses. It is:

  • Cloud-based so transferring projects or data is easily achieved using any media platform – phones, tablets, PC’s and Mac.

 

  • In ‘real-time’ which means the transfer of data is instantaneous.

 

  • Capable of integrating with legacy and external web-based platforms, so you get a 360-degree view from one dashboard.

Will D365 work across all my campuses?

Interoperability is at the core of Dynamics 365. With job-based permissions and departmental groupings. Using D365 as a hub means information can be pooled for high-level drill-down improving processes and insights.

Using an Institutional dashboard you can gain insights into students, classes, and key metrics, such as ‘students by program’ and demographics.

How much does Dynamics 365 cost?

For Universities and HE Dynamics 365 represents good value as apps are heavily discounted by 80% and are priced based on data usage (API – So you only pay for what you use).

Licences for apps can be added or removed and you are not tied into lengthy contracts.

How will students benefit?

Using a student portal means students can view completion towards program requirements, connect with an advisor, view courses and events, and see the history of courses and applications.

Information is transferred easily using portals, which are secure cloud-based and can be accessed from all media devices.

How will internal staff benefit?

All personas, including business partners, and faculty members, will have access to rich reporting on the students applying for internships, grants, and scholarships.

Secure data handling is maintained with role-based permissions.

Higher eduction is competitive, how do we market our courses?

We have found that often different departments with Universities and FE are employing different marketing platforms which don’t feedback to a hub. Dynamics 365 will become a central hub and platforms like ClickDimensions Mailchimp and DotDigital can be integrated, so data will be directly fed to your D365 dashboard enabling a 360-degree view, in real-time.

We have been working with Clare Kay, CEO of Inturi, for many years. We find communication is easy with Clare as she can explain things that are highly technical in a clear and concise way.

Cowry Solutions - Nigel Ridpath
Close contact with the development team, listening to their explanations, meant that I acquired a deeper understanding of the platform and was thus able to help my employees move seamlessly from the old to the new Dynamics 365 CRM. My team took to it immediately and the feedback from them was duly fed back to Inturi, who used it to further enhance the user experience.
