Wouldn’t it be nice to know where your department stands against yourself last year…or last week and where your department stands against other schools across the country and in your backyard?
SchoolDude's Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), created from the world’s largest educational operations database, can provide this insight.
When the 7,000+ educational institutions we serve use SchoolDude to complete work orders, manage their events, or track their IT assets, that data contributes to an aggregated database that allows schools to benchmark themselves against their peers, both nationally and even regionally. You can compare yourself to like-minded peers in areas such as proactive, preventive work compared to reactive, emergency work or cost recovery dollars from the community use of your facilities.
Sure, benchmarking against other schools is critical, but equally important is comparing yourself today to yourself yesterday. Historical trends of the key metrics you care about allow you to drill down into specific measures and analyze your performance month-to-month or year-to-year. See how many IT incidents the IT Department completed each month or how many work orders the Maintenance Department completed each month and how these metrics are trending over time. Are you becoming more efficient?
So, are you asking yourself, “this data is great, but how can I use it?” Here are just a few ways you can use this insight:
