Every dashboard we create evolves from bespoke design and development work to ensure it represents the precise requirements for the college and school, allowing it to become their intranet, the central hub for all information and other services.

Having worked with Empresa on the development of the e-ST platform since 2012, helping to combine their technical expertise with our education knowledge and experience, we have now developed what has become a truly essential service within the College. Used every day by students and staff, e-ST has become  the College intranet dashboard not only for publicising news and events but also in providing a wealth of information from our MIS systems in a central and easily accessible location. The core modules within e-ST offer the College the precise level of tracking and monitoring that is required to help support all of our students through their time at SFX.

Indeed it is true to say that eST has allowed the college to work more efficiently and more effectively to place the learner at the heart of the educational process’.

e-ST has been central to steady improvement in AS pass rates and overall success rates evident at St Charles College over the last three years. The tracker system works as a live record of the key elements of all aspects of a student's performance and, in this way, gives them the key data to monitor, review and improve their own performance as increasingly independent learners. At the same time the system gives teachers and senior staff a comprehensive record of where students are with their learning, together with the factors that might contribute to or inhibit further progress, so that appropriate interventions can be triggered (and recorded) when student autonomy isn't enough! It is enhanced with student feedback and UCAS reference writing options, as well as being housed in customised portals that function as key communication platforms for all that goes on in a busy college. e-ST has been equally beneficial as a student tracker system and as a tool for whole college communication

e-ST has provided the College with a platform that enables us to pull data from our MIS system into an environment where staff are able to use and understand the data in order for meaningful intervention and tracking. e-ST presents the data in a user friendly way and provides colleagues with the information they need instantly. Our teachers feel e-ST is intuitive to use and find the information they need within a click of a button. The available modules have enabled us to expand our use of e-ST, integrating both pastoral support and curriculum areas, through a single interface that data can be easily shared.

We made the decision a year ago to review our student tracking software due to issues identified by staff with our old student tracking software. After reviewing  two main tracking software suites in the market we made the collective decision to go with e-ST as it provided staff with a greater flexibility and easy to navigate menu structure.
 
The e-ST application does not only track progress of students but provides staff with a one stop place to view student attendance, timetable and other information.
 
The parent portal provides parents with information about the progress of their son/daughter and students cannot only view their data or progress but can set their own targets and reference statements for those applying for university place or jobs.
 
For the end user e-ST requires little training and since adoption the support has been very supportive  and helpful and willing to make changes to meet our individual needs.

The pastoral module of e-ST has transformed the way we communicate about students. We are able to create customised forms to capture a range of information which is held centrally for the student. No longer are we having to look up the teachers related to a student in order to email the information but letting the system determine the relevant recipients based on the student's timetable and keep clear track of responses to issues raised.

Students and parents now have greater access to information to help them manage student progress and achievement in the college. The mark book and ILP modules of e-ST make students more aware and reflective of their academic performance.

The Empresa developers have been very helpful when support is needed and are responsive to suggested developments to the system.

Empresa have delivered a complex, innovative and tailored dashboard solution in a tight timescale that will dramatically improve the availability and use of management information and which is expected to have significant long term benefits to the college.
 Bromley College is a large further education college. In August 2011 the college merged with Orpington College, which became the Orpington campus. In January 2013 the college was inspected and awarded a grade 2 in all areas of the Ofsted Common Inspection Framework. The college therefore has a good foundation in terms of management, performance and quality. Over the past few years the college leadership has recognised a need to strengthen the way that information and data is stored, presented and shared across the college at all levels. In particular, it was concerned that the CIS department, systems, tools and reports for the various stakeholders needed to be reviewed and enhanced to better provide more robust, coherent, accurate and timely reports for staff, management and the leadership team. In light of this SFX Corporate was commissioned to conduct a review of the CIS needs and in particular provide the college with a comprehensive set of recommendations on how the CIS department, reporting systems, processes and tools can be further improved to serve the increasing need of the college. This led to the appointment of Empresa to implement a data warehouse project along with implementing a CIS dashboard infrastructure based on the recommendations of the CIS review.
