The Situation

SEAtS, a leading provider of student success software for Higher Education Institutes (HEIs), today announced that the University of South Wales has deployed SEAtS software to support the University’s Student Visa and Immigration Compliance processes.

The university identified SEAtS through a comprehensive selection and evaluation process, fully researching the market. USW then procured the SEAtS Solution through the Crown Commercial Service Digital Marketplace where SEAtS is listed on the OJEU approved G-Cloud V framework.

“SEAtS offered us an immediate solution to support our Visa and immigration Compliance Policies and Processes for the entire South Wales campus. We foresee this as a step on the path to future options with SEAtS for supporting a student engagement reporting initiative. The software easily interfaced with our existing campus systems.”

Mr. Liam Bryson, Deputy Director of Student and Academic Services at the University of South Wales

SEAtS will support institutional ability to meet Tier 4 visa and immigration compliance obligations, as well as enable attendance data capture, absence alerts, online registers and evidence of presence with verifiable data streams.

SEAtS will enable the University of South Wales produce more accurate student analytics to lecturers, administrators, students and relevant external stakeholders.

The SEAtS Student Engagement Platform is an early warning system for retention, engagement, attendance and compliance issues. Reports, alerts and data analytics are delivered on cloud infrastructure. Student presence will be captured using touch terminals that work with both existing student ID cards and with biometric readers. The SEAtS platform will connect with existing campus systems at the University of South Wales including student records, timetabling and virtual learning environments.

“We are delighted to welcome University of South Wales as the latest SEAtS customer. SEAtS have had a great working relationship with the dynamic team at USW that have already delivered their Visa and Immigration solution live in less than three months. Universities such as South Wales that are innovating by using the power of big data, real time reporting and analytics, new methods of capturing engagement and presence will now gain significant competitive advantage. We look forward to the next phase, SEAtS Student Engagement and Retention.”

Noel Dooley, CEO of SEAtS Software

“SEAtS provided us with an immediate solution to any existing issues surrounding student retention, engagement or attendance monitoring. We are looking forward to the future prospects that this solution can generate for our university.”

Mike Hall, CIO of the University of Roehampton
