In the world of higher education, admissions teams face numerous challenges in their quest to attract the best students and streamline their operations. Transcript processing, in particular, is a critical and data-intensive task that demands efficiency and accuracy.
To help institutions understand the modern potential for revolutionizing their transcript processes, we are excited to introduce our Transcript Efficiency Analyzer. This powerful tool provides valuable insights into the advantages offered to Admissions teams harnessing intelligent automation, which enables colleges and universities to optimize their operations, save valuable resources, and make smarter decisions.
In this blog post, we will explore the features and benefits of our Transcript Efficiency Analyzer, highlighting the valuable insights it provides and how it can transform your admissions process.
Understanding the Data Points
Our Transcript Calculator is designed to provide admissions professionals with insights into the automation potential within their transcript processing workflows. By answering just three easy questions, institutions gain access to a wealth of information that reveals the potential improvements and cost savings they can achieve by leveraging our intelligent automation software, Freedom.
Annual Transcript Volume: The first question pertains to the number of transcripts processed annually. This information serves as the foundation for assessing the scale of transcript processing within your institution. By inputting this figure, you will gain a clearer understanding of the potential impact automation can have on your overall operations, especially considering busy periods of enrollment when thousands of incoming transcripts can bog your team down.
Processing Time per Transcript: Next, we ask about the average time it takes to process a single transcript manually. This data allows us to quantify the time investment currently required by your admissions team. By comparing it with industry benchmarks and
against the known benefits supplied through automation, we can easily help you identify opportunities for significant time savings.
Number of Admissions Staff Members: The final question relates to the number of admissions staff members involved in transcript processing. This data helps us assess the size of your team and calculate the potential redistribution of valuable resources that automation can provide. These may be full or part time staff that assist with processing and hand-keying information from transcripts during busy periods.
Unveiling the Insights
Once you provide the above information, our Transcript Efficiency Analyzer works its magic! Using industry norms and our own automation solution benchmarks, our calculator performs complex calculations to estimate the improvements and benefits you can achieve with Freedom, our intelligent automation software. Here are some of the key insights you can expect to receive:
Annual Workload Reduction: Our calculator reveals the number of employee hours that your team can repurpose for higher-value work annually. By automating manual tasks and reducing the time spent on transcript processing, your admissions staff can focus on more strategic initiatives, such as student engagement and relationship building.
Annual Efficiency Savings: Automation not only saves time but also reduces costs associated with manual data entry. The calculator estimates the annual employee salary cost saved by eliminating repetitive and time-consuming tasks. These cost savings can be reinvested in other areas of your institution or used to drive student success initiatives.
Average Reduction in Transcript Processing Time: The calculator quantifies the potential decrease in overall transcript processing time that can be achieved with Freedom. By automating data extraction, transcript evaluation, and integration with student information systems, you can expedite the admissions process and provide faster decisions to prospective students.
