PeopleAdmin Faculty Information System Named 2021 New Product of the Year Winner in the BIG Award for Business 

Austin, TX—December 7, 2021—Today, PeopleAdmin received the Business Intelligence Group’s BIG Award for Business and was named 2021 New Product of the Year. The annual awards program recognizes companies, products, and people that are leading their respective industries. 

 The New Product of the Year award honors PeopleAdmin’s Faculty Information System, a low- to no-touch solution designed to decrease administrative burden on faculty. This new solution is part of PeopleAdmin’s HigherEd Platform, and is designed as a centralized hub for all faculty data, activities, and professional development — all necessary information for achieving a promotion or tenure.  

“We are excited to be recognized for our innovative digital solution for faculty at higher education institutions. The Faculty Information System connects data and systems in new ways, offers ground-breaking insights into college or university campus activity, and helps faculty—and by extension, students—succeed,” said Rishi Rana, General Manager of PeopleAdmin. “This recognition boosts our continued innovation journey in connecting faculty and student outcomes with deep analytical insights in HigherEd.”

 This innovation is significant, as greater than 50% of HigherEd institutions still use paper-based performance and promotion processes. Faculty achievements drive growth at institutions, but Faculty activity reporting is time-intensive and takes focus away from more critical work with students and research. When reporting is easier for faculty, the administration gets the information they need and faculty can focus on what really matters. Administrative intelligence in turn empowers leaders to make more strategic, data-driven decisions for the individual faculty member, the department, and campus-wide, fueling efficiency and impacting student outcomes. With better insight into teaching, research, grants, and publications, an institution can streamline its promotion and tenure process, gain transparency around EEO statistics, and see the complete picture to better promote its academic excellence. And with PeopleAdmin’s connected platform ecosystem, data flows seamlessly between departments.  

 “We are so proud to reward PeopleAdmin for their outstanding 2021 leadership and achievements,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nomination officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “This year’s group of winners are clearly leading by example in the global business community.”  

PeopleAdmin’s Faculty Information System tackles higher education challenges head-on, offering busy faculty an intuitive solution they actually want to use and giving institutions the information they need to make the decisions that drive their mission.
