GlyphEd ALREADY HAS DATA VIZ

GIVE US 10 MINUTES, YOU’LL SEE GlyphEd IS UNIQUE AND A COMPLEMENT TO WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE

HOLISTICALLY VISUALIZE ENROLLMENT MANAGEMENT DATA

PROSPECT / APPLICANT / FINANCIAL AID FILE

Yes, you likely already have a data visualization solution to produce: bar-charts, scatter plots, and heat maps.

GlyphEd™ delivers a different capability.

GlyphEd™ provides a unique way of holistically visualizing all the data known about an applicant allowing you to see more and know more, faster.

RATHER THAN SEEING A “DOT” ON A SCATTER PLOT,

GlyphEd™ ALLOW YOU TO SEE ALL THE DATA AVAILABLE ON THE APPLICANT.

By visualizing data in this manner, the user can accelerate understanding of the: individual, cohort, neighborhood.

You may still need your traditional data visualization solution for reports and other analyses.

GlyphEd™ can complement what you are already doing and provide the Enrollment Management Office with the capability to more quickly assess situations across Recruiting, Admissions, Financial Aid, and Retention.

HOW GLYPHED WORKS

FIND THE STARS IN YOUR ENROLLMENT MANAGEMENT DATA

Emily Brown, pictured below, is your best prospective student. Oddly, she graduated 48th in her class.

She also has a patent pending for a prosthetic device that she and her mom made in their garage.

GlyphEd helps you find students like Emily and ensure their success throughout their college careers.

What do we know about Emily …..and…why does she look so…strange?

Emily is currently working on 3 more devices. Two of them are already in testing. And she’s been turned down by 2 other schools.

Until now, candidates like Emily were, unfortunately, buried in your data.

GlyphEd helps you find Emily, and her pals, quickly and easily.

GlyphEd sits on top of your current systems and uses a “glyph” to help you see your Enrollment Management data faster and easier. Yes, a glyph may look strange on first glance, but it uses geometric shapes, color, and size so that you can see more of your data holistically, in a glance, about candidates like Emily including: Recruiting, Admissions, and Financial Aid with Retention coming soon.

Emily is female

How do we know? This cube tells us so.

GlyphEd translates data into meaning via geometric shapes, color, and size.

A combination of color-coded shapes, of varying sizes, gives us a full picture of what Emily does well


• Emily graduated 48th in her class of 120
• Average grades and academic performance at school
• She scored a 1580 on the SAT
• She is a go getter who takes a lot of initiative
• She’s a Math and Science Maven
• She won awards in Metal Shop and Art
◦ SHE’S AN INVENTOR
• She’s a hands-on learner who is going to be a big success

Data-mapped, interlinked cubes, cylinders, and other shapes show us more about Emily than flat charts, graphs and tables can.

You can see Emily’s Recruiting, Admissions, and Financial Aid data in context, side by side with the rest of her cohort

Emily’s stands out thanks to her ingenuity and intentions to create a positive impact. And, she’s not the only super talented, polymath buried in your data.
