As Academies, Colleges and Universities become more accountable and business-focused Vice Chancellors, Presidents and Managing Directors of these Institutions need to be able to monitor and evidence performance against targets and objectives. Old fashioned paper or sharepoint based performance reviews are not suitable for enabling the kind of accountability and culture change that is required to deliver this. Actus Software facilitates improved visibility, accountability and focus through its easy to use interface and interactive graphical dashboards and reporting.

The configurability of the Software further helps by enabling different forms for performance reviews to be developed for Academic and Non Academic staff while supporting a consistent process. In addition to the more mainstream Actus features, clients in the Education Sector have also been able to use Actus Software to support Academic Supervision; Student Survey & Feedback and to report on Academic Research. Many Higher Education Institutions are looking to achieve culture change and our consultants are experienced with delivering this, even in a complex HR environment.

Technically, integration in terms of Single Sign On and security tend to be high priority to our Higher Education Clients and we are confident in our ability to deliver both of these aspects to meet your requirements.

If you institution wants to deliver more value to your students and improve your current approach to performance reviews then why not get in touch and have an exploratory chat with one of the team using the button below
