Case Study 4 – Top 10 Most Engaged and No Activity Courses
The inactive courses must be tracked at the earliest to increase retention.
This dashboard gives the list of Top 10 active courses and the courses that have no activity at all by department.
The “No activity” courses have been identified at the correct time and needed action can be taken to increase retention.
Case Study 5 – Courses Last Accessed Report by Faculty

This dashboard gives the list of courses and percentage of students who last accessed the course 15 days ago or never accessed the course.
The faculty and which courses they teach has high percentage of inactivity for more than a week/never can be identified immediately and timely action can be taken by the administration. This dashboard can be further drilled down to get list of student name and email associated with them.
Case Study 6 - Enhanced Student Advising Experience
At the beginning of each term, students need to be assigned/reassigned to advisors, a process via Banner that can take days and weeks depending on the number of student records that needs to be updated.
The Advising system supports real-time, bi-directional update of Banner data directly from Argos. The system is aided by Argos Screens, which allows mass updates of advisees and mass emails to students. It also has customized Audit and Advising report screens. It adds comments to SPACMNT, for the purpose of the audit, when students are informed about the advisor changes.
With just a few clicks of the mouse the Advising system gives you the ability to move large amounts of students from one advisor to another. This system also checks the threshold limit of each advisor, which makes sure that every advisor is not overbooked with students. In turn, this creates a better student experience by making sure advisors have time for each one of their students. Argos Advising System uses Banner API to update Banner and keeps students informed, and it makes the advising system easy to manage because future maintenance is generally minimal to none (especially during Banner upgrades).
Case Study 7 – One Stop Dashboards
During the enrollment period, browsing each Banner screen increases the advising time for counselors thereby impacting the enrollment count.
HiEd created One-Stop Dashboards where multiple Banner screens such as AR, Finance, Student, and Financial Aid are merged, leading to better student advising experience.
One Stop Dashboards significantly saves the time of advisors by putting all the data they need at their fingertips. Having the screens via Argos saves time in setting up counselor’s access in Banner to provide student related data.
The Dashboard includes 3 pre-designed screens: Class Schedule, Advisor and Counselor screens.
Case Study 8 – Automated Paperless Collections Systems
University needed to develop a system to facilitate the internal and external collection process to replace pre-existing manual process based on Excel spreadsheet.
HiEd developed an automated paperless collections system using Argos tool. This collections system allows storing, monitoring and maintaining both internal and external collections accounts, including real life integration with Banner financial system. The system enables transitioning past due student accounts, based on customizable criteria, to internal or external collections and displays a multitude of financial indicators from Banner, including account balances, holds, comments, dates of notices, general ledger information, etc. Collections system provides various automations saving staff processing time considerably, using Banner APIs, including hold placement and release, entry of comments, write offs on the student accounts and generation of mass communications to past due students as well as upload files for the collections agencies.
Dir. Of Student Accounts: “Collections system has been a much needed and welcome tool in our Accounts Receivable arsenal, resulting in immediate increase in collections success rates and also provided us with ability to monitor and report on the process. Collections system also served as a model and a starting point to use this approach for other dashboards within the university to improve and automate different processes and business flows.
