With many years experience working with HE institutions across the country from Post-92s to the Russell Group – and in partnership with the Oracle Higher Education User Group - we have honed a range of solutions to meet the unique needs of this exciting sector. These support you to:
- Empower people within your institution
- Enhance processes
- Enforce policies
Our 4 key principles
Trust: We believe trust comes from transparency.
Communication: In our experience during transformational projects, HE institutions frequently struggle to manage the expectations of the many different stakeholders involved. Our implementation approach involves Process Champions from each area in the institution who provide the perspective of their specific area highlighting potential challenges and improvement opportunities. This approach also encourages collaboration between departments and breaks down traditional information silos.
Knowledge transfer: We collaborate with our HE customers to share knowledge and experience with each organization, Inoapps and our University partners, providing their unique skills in support of the other.
Best Practice: We recommend Best Practice approaches to improve effectiveness and efficiencies by using digital technology better and eradicating manual processes. Our HE team has been involved in enhancing a vast range of complex HE processes, including HESA, TRAC Reporting, SLC and SAAS, Student Finance, Timetabling, Admissions, Graduation, and Research. We have a keen understanding of internal and external HE policies and the process dependencies within universities, which we believe are critical to designing a robust and fit-for-purpose university system.

"We already have an ambitious programme of transformation underway, and moving to the cloud will help to underpin and support our future ways of working in Finance, HR and across all of our schools and departments. Key to its success will be ensuring we’re not only delivering an improved system and joined up processes, but also making sure our staff across the University understand what it means for them.”– Gavin Ian McLachlan, Vice Principal and CIO at the University of Edinburgh
