July 2018, SEAtS Software, a leading provider of student success software and analytics for Higher Education, today announced that Unitec Institute of Technology is deploying their software. SEAtS will help Unitec deliver the best possible student experience and outcomes. SEAtS will support Unitec’s Student Retention, Engagement, and Compliance Programs.

The Challenge

Unitec Institute of Technology is the largest institute of technology in Auckland, New Zealand with over 16,000 students. Managing student attendance for such a large number had become a difficult task.

Unitec wanted to get more from their data. They wished to boost student retention and success, while improving the overall student and staff experience. They sought to present data from their existing campus systems in a meaningful way, in one place.

The Solution

  • SEAtS Attend – The solution will include attendance tracking for Unitec’s large student body. Card readers will be used in select locations based on best practices recommended by SEAtS.
  • SEAtS Alert – Workflows use email and text to communicate with students, faculty and support staff that engagement criteria is not being met and automate early interventions.
  • SEAtS Engage – Use predictive analytics based off a range of engagement metrics to identify students who are tending towards at-risk status, before the situation arises.
