Strategic Planning Online has helped the University of Mount Olive integrate the flow of planning and budgeting information into a system that truly informs our strategic planning process and supports our continuous organizational effectiveness and accreditation compliance efforts. The communication channels it affords as a part of its integration has been the key to our success as we have grown from a small college to the medium-sized, geographically distributed private college we are today (six locations, three schools, nine administrative units and over fifty workgroups). The product has most recently allowed us to respond to our new administration, serving as a highly adaptable tool for adjusting budgets, associated planning objectives, and organizational workgroup shifts. Customer support is top-notch! We are excited about adoption of the newest features coming available in this next release.
At Paradise Valley Community College, the use of the Strategic Planning Online system (SPOL) has been transformational and helped establish an environment of accountability. Using SPOL each department/unit can engage in the planning and budgeting process throughout the year. SPOL’s robust reporting and cross-unit collaboration functionality allows for and promotes a process that is open and transparent. SPOL has enabled the college to better coordinate is strategic planning and budget process, engage stakeholder managers across the institution, align college outcomes to budgets, and establish a platform for collaboration and information sharing. The use of SPOL was instrumental in successfully reaffirming our most recent regional accreditation.
“Strategic Planning Online has been an invaluable tool in the creation, monitoring, and success of Three Rivers' Strategic Plan, Coordinated Budgeting, Outcomes Assessment, and Accreditation Compliance. Without SPOL, the college would not have been able to implement an ongoing system for planning, outcomes assessment, budgeting and accreditation that was truly meaningful and a “living” system. Strategic Planning Online has been the catalyst that has made our system work the way it should and is one of the major keys to our success. Strategic Planning Online – Planning, Budgeting, Assessment, and Accreditation Solutions.”
“Implementing Strategic Planning Online has allowed Blinn College to integrate our assessment, planning, budgeting, and accreditation efforts (both regional and programmatic) into processes which support our continuous improvement efforts. “The functionality of the system, in addition to their very responsive customer support, were essential in helping us through our SACSCOC reaffirmation efforts in 2013-14 – the accreditation module was extremely easy to use and required minimal training for our writers and editors. We absolutely made the right choice when we selected SPOL.”
