Streamline your administrative workload and get back to helping students succeed
Vena helps you streamline operations and outcomes-based education processes so you have more time to focus on your students’ needs.
Our secure, cloud-based platform helps you and your staff get up and running quickly.
Since you don’t need to be trained extensively on Vena or wait for server or infrastructure set-ups, you’ll avoid the costs that accompany many other enterprise-class solutions.
Automate your educational accreditation processes
Efficiently collect and consolidate the data you need to demonstrate your programs and graduates meet the standards of accrediting organizations.
Vena’s central data repository seamlessly and securely syncs with your existing data sources and rolls up-to-date data into a central repository on a daily basis.
Use dynamic templates to collect information from any faculty or department. Vena’s central data repository automatically consolidates data for immediate use. This eliminates inefficient email exchanges that needlessly prolong the data collection and consolidation processes.
Using a graphic process designer, you can create workflows that break processes down into a series of repeatable steps – each of which can be associated with a specific user and due date and contain instructions about the task.
Automatically generated emails are sent to the manager and user when a deadline has passed, when a task has been completed and when a template is ready to be edited, approved or rejected, keeping the workflow moving at all times.
Put business rules in place to prevent to unauthorized users from accessing spreadsheets with sensitive information.
