How Time Tracking and Scheduling Bring Agility to Higher Ed

About This Resource

Published in collaboration with trusted industry media partner, Higher Ed Dive, TCP Software conducted a survey of higher ed professionals about their use of time-tracking software in the wake of COVID-19. This report highlights the permanent changes facing higher education institutions face from a 25% spike in enrollment deferments to a shift in the location of the learning experience. But there’s one area where higher ed is not getting the attention it deserves — managing the workforce that supports the changes taking place for students and faculty.
Fortunately, there’s a silver lining to all the change taking place. COVID-19 revealed the opportunity institutions have to be more flexible and productive in how they approach workforce time management. As these changes take root at the administrative level, benefits of increased productivity, flexibility and agility are becoming even more clear — which is especially important in higher ed, where faculty, staff and employees make up different and diverse types of employment.

The survey reveals compelling evidence that the status quo has been broken. Before the pandemic, higher ed institutions could navigate around the need for technology that helped them manage their mixed workforce, but the pandemic put too much pressure on those points of challenge.

For a sneak peek, here’s what higher ed pros say they want to learn from their workforce management software, post-COVID-19:
• Identifying opportunities to improve efficiency and/or productivity (54%)
• Creating a single source of truth for the variety of schedules maintained by faculty, staff and administrative personnel (50%)
• Saving time on manual day-to-day processes and calculations such as time off, overtime, grant tracking and hourly labor (44%)
• Collecting data for strategic workforce insights in the future (44%)
• Incorporating more advanced time-tracking technology such as biometric tracking (fingerprints), card swipes and web clocks (40%)
