Click below to find out how Experian can enable you to deliver an optimal onboarding procedure, overhaul your data management, discover new insights, and reduce financial and staffing risks.
Creating an excellent campus environment starts with superior staff. Read on to find out how, with the right tools and insights, you’ll be able to bring new candidates on board fast, store their data safely, and ensure you’re making a safe decision to protect your institution’s reputation.
Picking candidates that match your establishment’s ideals and goals is one thing, but given that an estimated 11 per cent of job applicants falsely claim to have degrees, it’s not enough to take candidates on face value. Services like Experian’s qualification checks can help ensure you’re bringing in experts, not exaggerators.
Bringing new staff into an environment filled with vulnerable people means stringent background checks are an absolute necessity. Robust screening tools like Experian’s Candidate Verifier and Right-to-work app help make performing checks quicker and easier. They also bring accurate identity verification right into your onboarding and HR processes.
Onboarding can involve dealing with a number of complex, time-consuming systems, but it really shouldn’t. Managing your full onboarding journey in one place helps simplify and speed up the process – and ensures nothing slips through the cracks.
Maintaining an up-to-date staff database helps ensure compliance with regulations like GDPR, gives you the security of knowing which staff members have relevant training and accreditations, and ensures that ongoing DBS and right-to-work checking is straightforward. It can also help HR and payroll stay properly aligned.
Every penny counts, and every partner is a vital part of making your campus run smoothly. Discover how the right tools and techniques can help you form strong relationships and drive accurate, complete financial management.
Whether it’s library fees or campus fines, students can build up small debts over time. Once a student leaves a course, some of these debts may remain unpaid. By aligning all of your departments with a service like Experian’s ConsumerView, everything they owe can be visible on a single screen – and the days of piecemeal debt collection can be put in the past.
Suppliers, partners and sponsors come with inherent risks, both financial and (in present times) covid-related. Experian’s volatility index is one way to spot clients who may be at risk of instability, and tools like the Experian Safeguard dashboard could enable you to offer proactive support to vulnerable students.
If you’re making business payments, large or small, it’s imperative they go to the right place. A fraudulent payment or one made in error could mean delays, liability claims, or even serious damage to your institution’s reputation. The process of verification can be long-winded, but tools like Experian’s Bank Wizard can reduce the risk of payment processing errors, as well as helping you align with BACS Direct Debit rules.
Anti-money laundering regulations mean that politically exposed persons – which can include family members or associates of those in power – demand greater scrutiny. A service like Experian Authenticate can help identify students or employees who may be PEPs via Sanctions data.
Biannual student enrolment is one of the most stressful and difficult tasks facing any educational institution. Transform that process and it could be a breeze – and offer far greater data safety, too.
Transfer your existing enrolment procedure to a paper-free, cloud-based system like Experian’s CrossCore and you’ll be able to combine every process into a single view, offering immediate benefits in terms of anti-fraud data security, record completeness and reduced labour demands – as well as giving your students the experience they expect.
A tool like Experian’s Identity Authenticate can drastically speed up student (and staff) enrolment by allowing identification of digital copies of documents. Whether you need to process ID in real time or in batches, removing the need for paper copies makes things simpler and safer for everyone.
A combined platform such as Experian’s CrossCore eliminates the difficulty of enrolling international students, drawing from worldwide datasets to reliably confirm their identity and verify documentation without the need to consult local experts.
Your university’s data quality should be as important as the quality of education you’re providing. By creating a clear, clean and shared vision of your students, every department on campus will be empowered to act as part of a unified whole.
Higher education data can originate from a host of locations, entry points, and even languages, which can lead to major data quality issues. A single student view, managed by a service such as Aperture Data Studio, encourages more complete and sanitary data.
Data isolation can lead to inaccurate, incomplete or conflicting records. Migrating all of your departments to a single student view through a tool like Experian Pandora helps connect the dots to improve communication and offer distributed parties greater insight into the overall standing of each student.
Combining distributed silos into a coherent whole is not simply an interface upgrade. With data cleansed and validated, it can then be enriched – and a full data set opens up a wide array of possibilities for analysis and insight over time, while also aiding the preparation of Higher Education Students Early Statistics reports.
Siloed data can be difficult to access and almost impossible to reliably track. High quality consolidated data, on the other hand, makes compliance with data retention and governance policies entirely straightforward.
