people. Student Management Software (people. sms) closes the gap.

The old models of student engagement no longer meet the needs of students who demand flexibility, a sense of control, and a feeling of individuality.  

Traditional student management solutions are transactional, administration focused, finance-centric, and leave out people. 

Integrating disparate systems is key to meeting the digital service and engagement expectations of the modern student, but this can be difficult and costly.

Enable great student experiences at all stages of the student lifecycle

Empower providers to scale and customise offerings economically

Facilitate smarter decision making by analysing integrated data, and providing actionable insights

Reduce time and risk spent on compliance reporting

Engage and empower your tutors and faculties with valued, real-time data

What is people Student Management?

A powerful, integrated, and flexible platform that puts people at the heart of the student management journey – students, educators, administration staff, faculty members. people sms uniquely combines the key operational functions required to effectively, compliantly and economically run an education and training organisation, with flexible, intuitive, integrated tools that enable great student experiences, increased student engagement, and drive positive learner outcomes.

For enterprise level training and education providers, who are seeking an integrated solution across the student lifecycle, or have outgrown the capabilities of their small SMS solution, people sms is a game changer for those looking to support and empower a student body of between 1000 - 40,000+ students.

From prospective students to enthusiastic alumni advocates, people sms prioritises people at every stage of the student lifecycle, while intelligently reducing administrative burden and ensuring compliance requirements are met.

Why was people Student Management developed?

Fusion5, who developed people sms, had been working with education, higher learning, and training providers for years. A theme emerged around the challenges our customers were facing.

Simply put - the world changed, and the legacy student systems they were running no longer met the needs or expectations of their people. Not their students. Not their educators. Not their business services staff. No-one.

Focusing on transactional and administrative functions ignored the experiential needs of those interacting with the system. The fundamental architecture no longer served the environment it was operating in, and we knew there was a better way.

So we developed people sms.

By understanding the competitive environment education and training providers operate in, the impact of the digital age on customer expectation, and the key areas that caused our customers the biggest headaches (multiple non-integrated systems, siloed data, clunky and slow user experiences, manual administrative and compliance burdens), we created a solution that puts the needs of people (students, educators, office staff) at the centre, and lets automation handle the transactional, administrative, and compliance functions.

This shift in focus empowers them to tackle the challenges that were holding them back, leap-frogging them into a stronger, more competitive, more value-adding position. And the student experience at every stage of their learning lifecycle leaves them engaged, delighted, and acting as enthusiastic advocates.

 

Enabling great student experiences at all stages of the student lifecycle

Having a student management solution with a platform powerful and flexible enough to accommodate changeable course configurations, and then being able to scale those new courses to be economically viable, is your secret weapon to building competitive advantage.

With vocational relevance now playing a big part in further education and training, a one size fits all education experience is no longer going to hit the mark with students, funding providers and employers.

Using people sms, providers will be able to build up new education offerings by configuring competencies and units that allow students to gain the skills and experience that is relevant to their professional development. Rather than developing courses in isolation, administrators and academic staff can design courses that reduce duplication of delivery, and keep delivery costs to a minimum, while still providing students with a high quality of education and training.

Automation, curriculum configuration and planning tools provide the necessary foundations to scale delivery to respond to large shifts in education demand, through to being nimble enough to provide niche education solutions to specific industry sectors.

Smarter decisions from integrated data insights

The delivery of successful educational outcomes no longer needs to be guesswork and analysis after the fact.

By capturing key data such as enrolments, student activity, academic performance and day to day operations into a single system, educational institutions can gain insights that will allow smarter decision making and enable them to take faster action. For instance, monitoring student activity across a range of metrics can give real-time awareness of engagement levels, attendance, achievement and progress. Observed separately, a single ‘off’ grade may not seem significant, but when combined and reported on as an overall picture, a disengaged student may be supported more effectively, early on, reducing the risk of failure or dropping out.

Also, people sms captures metrics such as class sizes, demand for specific qualifications and the popularity of elective units – all of which can be used to ensure that effort spent in course design and delivery supports real world demand. It also gives institutions valuable forecasting data so they can accurately budget and plan for resources such as tutors, classrooms, and educational support materials.
