Providing you with all the data on revenue, expenses and margins for all programs in the entire institution (plus all associated courses) allowing you to perform analysis to optimize these programs to maximize margins while staying true to your mission.

Are you inundated with ad-hoc program and course financial report requests? Save significant time with a pre-built centralized, standardized and systemized model of your entire institution with all the data you need to run rapid reports in minutes not days or weeks!

  • Rapid Insights – Low-cost, low-risk entry into ABC models.
  • Executive Insights – taking the Rapid model one step further by introducing more detail with HR/Payroll data.
  • Strategic Insights – expanding on the Executive model with the inclusion of Facilities data and Research data, if available.
  • Predictive Insights – using previously built Executive or Strategic Models, the Predictive model can be used to forecast a range of different scenarios, including things like calculating the costs required to support increases in student numbers (by different types of students) or the introduction of new programs or removal of old programs. This can be done for a one year forecast or up to a ten years forecast, taking into consideration things like inflation estimates and enterprise bargaining arrangements.
  • Environmental Insights – Carbon Accounting models can be built using either an Executive, Strategic or Predictive Model, environmental metrics can be included as an extra “cost” component to resources, i.e. Carbon Dioxide Equivalent metrics, required for calculating the institutions overall carbon footprint, but more importantly being able to calculate the carbon footprint on a per Program basis or on a per “activity” or school basis so that the institution can measure the footprint but also to manage this footprint. The major benefit of this type of Carbon Accounting is that it includes all financial cost as well, so you can look for the most cost effective way to reduce your carbon footprint at a granular level.
