It is important for a higher education institution to understand its strengths and weaknesses in order to organise its resources effectively. It can be difficult to understand where the institution ranks amongst its competitors both overall and within specific criteria. Factors such as student experience, teaching quality, student-staff ratios and other metrics are difficult to track effectively and easily. What is needed is a clear platform that can visualise and track performance indicators clearly over time so that the university can attract more students and improve performance.

The Solution

Billigence has created a platform in which a higher education institution can clearly track its performance in comparison to its competition. The platform allows for the planning office to clearly see where they rank on individual indicators as well as overall. The league tables analysis is an effective visual tool that contains predictive modelling in order to facilitate better overall planning. Example images of this solution can be found below.

Note: For anonymity purposes, the names of specific institutions have been edited out.

In this platform, the overall institutional performance can be compared with the competition on a yearly basis, with a clear visualisation showing the rankings. The graph on the right allows planners to view a metric analysis graph, with filter down options allowing quick and easy analysis. In this example, UCAS entry points in on the X axis, with student experience on the Y axis.
This dashboard allows planners to drill down on specific metrics in order to compare performance to other universities. This dashboard enables data to be explored, which is a simple and effective method of pinpointing strengths and weaknesses. This is very helpful when making decisions pertaining to the allocation funds and resources.

League Table Analysis Benefits

Visualise Strengths & Weaknesses

The dashboards allow you to compare all metrics across the institutions and pre-defined groups. Highlight strengths and weaknesses clearly.

Interactive Dashboard

The dashboard is fully interactive, which allows for quick on-the-spot analysis that would be impossible to achieve with pdf style reporting. It allows you to ask more questions of your data without having to wait for IT to generate reports.

Metric Comparison

The interface allows the user to compare and contrast universities using different metrics. The filter style and drill-down menus allow for in-depth analysis with extreme ease. This means that planning directors can answer the questions they have simply, quickly and effectively.

Competitor Analysis

This platform allows the user to measure and analyse the trends of competitor institutions. This means that you can track your institution’s performance alongside your competition, allowing for critical insights into industry trends.

Automated Procedures

The data is consolidated from various data sets or a data warehouse and then automatic processes refresh the data. What was previously 40+ Excel reports can now be covered by 2 interactive dashboards and 6 reports. This means a lot less work and much less maintenance.


With this approach, Billigence will build your institution the model. The model will have to be maintained internally by your team.
