In order to supercharge their reporting capabilities, Worcester decided to make the most of the Enroly CAS Shield Data Insights extension.
The Enroly platform was already aligning Worcester’s recruitment, admissions and compliance teams, giving them access to automated workflows that were transforming the CAS, visa and arrival experience for staff and students.
Beyond these core benefits of the Enroly platform, adopting the Data Insights extension offered Worcester business reporting on hundreds of CAS Shield metrics in real-time. The tool allowed the team to access and visualise data as never before, helping everyone at the organisation become more data-driven in their role.
In particular, better oversight of CAS processing times helps the admissions team plan the next intake, and monitor the progress of the current intake and intervene and allocate resources accordingly. The team was also able to make the most of UKVI processing times to determine CAS cut-off and deposit deadlines, tailored to key markets such as India and Nigeria
Industry averages and competitor segments are helping Worcester better understand which institutions are their direct competitors and benchmark performance against the wider sector: a unique feature of Enroly Data Insights.
Data Insights has been adopted widely across many areas of the university beyond admissions and compliance: even academic teams are using the tool to have better visibility on international intakes. It was this best practice implementation of the tool that won Worcester the 2023 Data Insights Champion Award at the 2023 Enroly Awards.
