Inigral Introduces Real-Time Enrollment Intelligence Solution for Higher Education

New service helps universities engage admitted students and predict enrollment

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Inigral, creator of Schools App, an application on Facebook and mobile devices, today announced Enrollment Intelligence, a new service that provides real-time insights to university admission professionals about students' likelihood to enroll.  

By analyzing social and behavioral data patterns from over 3 million students across 100 partner universities, Inigral has created a proprietary algorithm that provides admissions professionals predictive scores on which students are most likely to enroll and which may be at risk. Now universities can understand in real-time which students need more information and support to successfully enroll.  This data is also presented in ways that help admissions professionals target their recruitment efforts and meet their target class mix.

"We are entering into year three of our partnership with Inigral and we could not be more pleased," said Brian Kennedy, Assistant Director of Communication at Samford University. "They have given social media a role in predictive modeling by developing extensive real time data tracking capabilities on the backend of their product.  This has allowed our admission office to better serve our prospective students while utilizing our time and resources in a more efficient way."

"Universities are feeling the crunch of reduced budgets and staff.  At the same time, the number of students applying and being accepted is increasing. With Enrollment Intelligence, admissions professionals can focus resources on those that are in need of more information," said Jamie Glenn, CEO of Inigral. "By providing real-time insights into admitted students, universities can personalize their outreach and communication providing them with the information to make a better decision on which school is the right fit. "  

"We have to be smarter with our resources.  Part of this is to embrace engaging students digitally," said Michael Schneider, President of McPherson College.  "We need less bricks and more clicks, and we need to use those clicks as information that can help us provide better services to students."

"This is part of a larger movement in Higher Education to be more data-driven," explained Michael Staton, Inigral's co-founder and Chief Evangelist.  "Higher Ed is talking about Big Data, but they need more data. The Learning Management System is not early enough."   

Enrollment Intelligence is part of Inigral's Schools App, a subscription-based enrollment management solution for higher education. The application is built on the Facebook, iPhone and Android platforms, where students spend the majority of their time each day. The company's solution is proven to impact university yield and retention while providing real-time data and analytics to university administrators. Partner institutions realized as much as 4.7x higher enrollment rates amongst admitted students who use Schools App.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
