Implementation Guides Overview
Implementation requires careful strategic planning, communication, and promotion. The following Implementation Guides provide useful and valuable information for effective and successful implementation.
In this article:
Before proceeding with the following guides, take note of the following information regarding Pathify Implementation.
Identify and prioritize the top 3-5 systems requiring more than single-sign-on integration or needing integrations to include push/pull, notifications, data passage, etc.
Most institutions roll out integrations deliberately, via a regular cadence. Therefore, it is important to discuss the integration strategy thoroughly with internal stakeholders as well as a Pathify Customer Success Manager.
Inform training and communication to and with all stakeholders involved in the implementation as well as ask other institutional stakeholders for desired integrations.
Pathify will produce (and is capable of sending) completely new kinds of data and is highly effective in the profiling of risk and success; therefore, data conversations should begin early and occur often.
Whether adding a new data set to an existing early alert system, pushing behavioral data to an existing Customer Relationship Management platform, or using Pathify in a stand-alone capacity, institutions should start talking through data with any appropriate stakeholder groups as soon as possible.
Even if the institution is not in a place to consume or leverage current trending or monitor data, individuals from various constituent groups may desire to work toward its usage. Therefore, the key is to understand what is available, how it is consumable, and therefore how to leverage the data.
While these guides serve to provide excellent resources and suggestions to consider and use, remember that almost every initiative or strategy might be well served as a parallel, student experience.
Students, who are likely to become daily users of the platform, are likely to have the most ideas and creative suggestions, and are the best conduit to identifying problems or suggestions for most systems. Include their voice throughout the process.
