Spurgeon’s College selects Ellucian Quercus to modernise its student information system and automate statutory reporting
- Quercus will help Spurgeon’s to integrate, manage and report on student data, from admissions to graduation.
- The cloud solution will ease the challeges associated with meeting statutory reporting obligations.
- Spurgeon’s will use Quercus to integrate student data for faster, more accurate reporting and more effective decision making.
In the past, Spurgeon’s created and tracked student records through a mix of off the shelf commercial databases, spreadsheets and word processing programmes. However, this made it difficult to manage the large volume of data the school maintained and limited their options to integrate third party tools. These data management challenges were especially critical when it came time to meet statutory reporting obligations.
Spurgeon’s needed a new system that would help automate the data collection process so that data collection and the return process would be easier, faster and more accurate. Spurgeon’s selected Quercus, a turn-key and comprehensive cloud-based solution that integrates student data for faster, more accurate reporting and more effective decision making.
“We’re a smaller college and our staff works hard to deliver an amazing experience for our students,” said Reverend Helen Stokley, Director of Operations at Spurgeon’s College. “Quercus does exactly what we need it to, seamlessly processing, recalling and retrieving data so that our staff can focus on what’s truly important: teaching and expanding opportunities for students.”
Quercus was created with higher education reporting in mind, such as those required by U.K. regulatory bodies, providing a helping hand to automate returns, navigate changing policy and maintain regulatory compliance. Plus, with all records integrated and accessible in one location, Quercus supports powerful decision making backed by data.
“Spurgeon’s College joins a large and growing community of theology-based higher education institutions taking a proactive approach to IT modernization on campus,” said Ellucian SVP & Managing Director EMEA and APAC Darren Hunt. “This community has all gone through the same process and have seen the difference Quercus makes in reporting, decision-making and overall efficiency. We’re truly excited for the opportunity to work together.”
