Deakin University made the decision to purchase InPlace to manage all work experience placements, the School of Education outline the benefits they gained
The Professional Experience Office in the School of Education held many reservations about the proposed migration having invested several years in the development of an internal system and an understanding that the complexity and intricate nature of education placements would make it difficult for any “out of the box” solution to adequately support.
The InPlace team has worked closely with Deakin Education, alongside other universities who have joined in using the system in Education, to improve and adapt the system which is now a product that adds great value to our working environment. Both Deakin Education and Quantum have gained great benefit from this relationship.
The current InPlace has many features which have been developed to cater to the specific needs of education and in many cases can be used across all areas of the university.
- Bulk emailing with several attachments
- Bulk SMS
- Accurate and streamlined organizational tools (Query Tools) built to collect specific data
- Communication with university database to track student enrolment statuses (enrolment/ discontinues)
- Accurate and efficient tracking of student placement, both historically and future requests
- Student accessibility to keep personal details up to date and accurate.
These features and many more have made this product widely accepted and appreciated in our workplace. InPlace has been integral in enabling us to explore new and improved processes, improving our placement models to the benefit of students, academics and our partner schools.
I look forward to our team and University continuing a close relationship with the InPlace.
Team and deriving even greater benefits from the use of the software. This process will be complemented by a close and cooperative working relationship with other InPlace users who all share common goals.
