Manage your Students Path to Student Success today with SEAtS Student Case Management Solutions.


SEAtS Case Management Solutions:

Within any institution, there is a myriad of support services designed to help students overcome challenges and attain their goals. Research shows that students perform best when they spend time with the people on campus who can help them – typically being advisors, counselors, tutors, and lecturers. Unfortunately, engaging students with these services is often easier said than done.

SEAtS Case Management module of our solution facilitates meaningful contact between students and their lecturers, instructors or tutors. The module encourages students to engage more deeply in their academic lives by connecting them to the people and resources best equipped to help them succeed.

SEAtS Case Management gives lecturers a rich picture of a student’s engagement, attendance and success course at any given stage, allowing them to intervene when necessary ensuring that they stay on track with achieving their goals. SEAtS allow everyone (with a need to know) to see where that student is along that path. These case management tools focus limit institutional resources on what needs to be done next to student success.


SEAtS put everything related to each student’s success in one place for advisors. At a glance an advisor can:
  • Review case workload
  • Send bulk emails, letters or text messages using templates
  • Create manual case interventions
  • Book appointments with students
  • Review student intervention history
  • Review activity & attendance history


What it means for your campus

Our system puts everything advisors need to handle student success in the one place reducing advisor administrative workload with workflows and escalations.

Learning analytics refers to the measurement, collection, analysis, and reporting of data about the progress of learners and the contexts in which learning takes place. Using the increased availability of big datasets around learner activity and digital footprints left by student activity in learning environments, learning analytics take us further than data currently available can.

SEAtS Announces Availability on G-Cloud 9

SEAtS Software Announces Availability on G-Cloud 9

SEAtS are proud and delighted to announce its continued presence on the upgraded G-Cloud 9 Framework. The latest round, G-Cloud 9, is part of the UK Government’s Digital Marketplace where public sector organisations can access suppliers and procure products without the need for a lengthy tender process.

Buying services through frameworks are faster and cheaper than entering into individual procurement contracts. Buyers and suppliers still need to sign a contract (or “call-off contract”) for each service bought through a framework.

The G-Cloud Framework is an agreement between the Government and suppliers who provide cloud-based services and the SEAtS Student Success Platform and host of cloud-based solutions can be found within the Software as a Service (SaaS) category.

We have a number of clients who have signed up for SEAtS solutions via G-Cloud since 2013. The process is more efficient and direct, cutting out a lot of red tape!

Ravensbourne Deploys SEAtS

Ravensbourne Goes Live with SEAtS

“What made SEAtS so appealing was its ready-made, automated approach to student success. The idea of something that is easy for staff and students to use and doesn’t take up too much time, it is so easy for students to just tap in on a reader at the start of class than a member of staff having to call out a register. This gives more time for teaching and hopefully has a positive impact on the student experience.”

Adam Campbell, Quality Officer Ravensbourne

The Challenges

Ravensbourne is constantly looking for ways to innovate and enhance the student experiences and outcomes. Ravensbourne identified the need to find a suitable attendance monitoring solution to aid this. Having used various manual attendance monitoring systems in the past that were inconsistent and inaccurate in recording data, a change was needed.


The Vendor Selection Process

Adam and the team at Ravensbourne wanted a solution that could deploy fast, evolve and grow with the business; this eliminated many vendors when combined the need for a solution that would be easy to use and understand. That way Students and  Academic Staff would find it easy to use. The Crown Commercial Service’s G-Cloud procurement framework helped the decision-making process by identifying quickly a short-list of likely vendors. Ravensbourne selected SEAtS as it had the features and track record to handle deploying fast and with ease of transition.


The Implementation Process

Post vendor selection, Adam and the team at Ravensbourne faced the challenge of managing time, scope and the implementation of a new timetabling system. SEAtS and Ravensbourne personnel worked as a unified project team to map out and deliver key project milestones. SEAtS online project methodology and the portal was used to make sure deadlines and dates stayed on track.



Student attendance monitoring was of valuable importance for the Ravensbourne team, they wanted a top shelf ready to use system to capture their attendance levels. They also wished to utilise early warning alerts automatically sent out to those students who are at-risk or failing. The solution needed to:

  • Improve achievement by increasing student attendance
  • Improve retention by strengthening engagement through improved pastoral care, reducing the risk of students leaving their courses
  • Reduce administrative overhead of recording, monitoring and following up on attendance, with minimum disruption to the student and lecture in the classroom
  • Support compliance for monitoring student attendance for UKVI for International students in a seamless and integrated way for all students
  • Provide a better picture of room utilisation for timetable optimisation for the facilities and scheduling teams, and for senior management to enable strategic investment planning.



Ravensbourne has officially gone live in January 2018. Speaking about this Adam Campbell said:

As someone who is not directly involved in teaching, I did not have a great understanding of what was happening so inconsistently in the institution in terms of attendance monitoring. I think it has been insightful from that point of view. To see particularly our further education courses embracing it very quickly is very promising.”

The system provides a view of students who are expected in every class and then in real-time shows them swiping in and marked as “attended”. This removes the need to take local class registers. Students who are late are marked as such. Those who do not attend are shown as “absent”. Students who attend a session that they are not timetabled to attend are shown as “unexpected”. Reports are available to report on and monitor attendance by student, module, and programme. Automated alerts are sent to students who fail to attend a predetermined number of sessions.


Key Benefits for Ravensbourne:

According to the Ravensbourne team, deploying the SEAtS system has delivered the following key benefits:

  • Better academic performance due to comprehensive engagement and attendance tracking for students
  • Improved student retention due to early warning of “at-risk” students which leads to strengthening pastoral care
  • Formal compliance reporting processes for Tier 4 Visa and Immigration.

Prepare for Brexit with SEAtS

With the future impact of Brexit taking shape (if it takes place which is likely), there is no doubt that it will have a big impact of the higher education sector. Research has shown that EU (non-UK) students will decrease from the current 120,000 post Brexit. Universities will have to work harder to keep their existing UK based students. They may have to recruit more UK-based students to fill the void, many with lower tariffs.

With the widening of participation, the cohort of at risk students increases. These students need active supports to complete their student journey right through to graduation.

Visa restrictions and higher fees for EU (non-UK) students due to their changing status will increase the UKVI compliance workload and associated risks. On the other hand, the drop-in Sterling benefits international students in the UK with lower fees and living costs.

Good business practice calls for planning for whatever eventuality will occur. SEAtS can help with our tried and tested solutions for Student Retention, UKVI compliance and much more besides.

We do this by giving you early warning alerts for “at risk” students. SEAtS also have a full suite of in-built workflows to track and alert on visa compliance issues. These two “out of the box” processes offer immediate compliance, retention and progression benefits.

Check out our suite of solutions which will he help your institution, students and reputation today and in the future:

New Survey demonstrates students in UK doubt tuition fees value for money and would prefer more contact time

Many students in the UK are unconvinced they have received value for money from their university courses, according to an annual survey.

And a large majority do not think they have been given enough information about how tuition fees are spent. The survey suggests students average 12 hours per week “contact” time, when they are taught by staff. The findings are part of a survey of 15,000 students in the UK, carried out by higher education think tanks.
