Focus on the student
Focus on the student
Attracting and retaining students is no easy task for universities. Competition is fierce. At the same time, students are more critical than ever before, and their wishes and demands have increased.
Our solution, it.education, helps universities to better understand the needs of students. it.education enables them to respond to those needs, improving performance, satisfaction, and retention.
it.education is a state-of-the-art solution, based on SAP Student Lifecycle Management. The solution continues where traditional student information systems end. Many classic Student Information Systems focus on core functions such as the registration and tracking of students. it.education goes much further. Think of possibilities such as marketing campaigns for the recruitment of new students, selling (short) courses and training through a webshop, and analytics.

Students can track their own progress and have insight into their data, anywhere, anytime, using any device. This goes beyond the classic overviews of grades and signing up for courses or tests. Students, for example, have insight into the progress of their study and their financial situation, can apply for exemptions, and may request and submit documents.
it.education replaces separate systems that provide, for example, SIS, CRM, and e-commerce with a single, integrated, and easy-to-manage solution.
Students no longer always complete a single study in four years. It.education also supports the lifecycles of, for example, international students, course participants, and exchange students all within the same solution.
The powerful analytics functions provide institutions with direct insight into relevant data. The SAP HANA in-memory technology enables analysis on live data without requiring, for example, a data warehouse.
it.education works out-of-the-box and lays the foundation for standard processes based on proven best practices. Expensive and time-consuming customization is not necessary.
