Educational institutions face similar challenges to a typical commercial
enterprise or public sector organization, including economic and
budgetary pressures, increased competition for top-notch talent,
compliance, and a rapidly changing, diverse workforce that must be
effectively managed.
SumTotal helps some of the worlds most recognized educational
organizations to retain and grow their talent and run more efficiently
and effectively. SumTotal has the industry’s most complete Strategic
Human Capital Management (HCM) solution and unmatched experience
managing complex compliance, talent and workforce management
needs for today’s educational organizations.

Complete Learning & Talent Management Capabilities
    ■   Effective, Efficient Compliance & Certification Solution:
        Educational organizations must comply with a wide variety of complex federal and state
        regulatory requirements, so ensuring your workforce maintains proper certifications, that
        all certifications are up-to-date and easily able to be reported on is critical. SumTotal’s
        industry leading Learning Management solution provides complete functionality to meet the
        compliance and certification needs of educational organizations. In addition, SumTotal’s
        ability to automatically track certifications and manage the recertification process for
        employees reduces the risk of non-compliance penalties/fines while minimizing the amount
        of administrative overhead required to manage these requirements.
    ■   Available Anytime, Anywhere: SumTotal Mobile provides powerful, next generation
        learning through most major mobile devices giving educational organizations increased
        access and flexibility in delivering learning programs. With industry leading features,
        such as support for multi-media and SCORM content, offline access to content, course
        tracking and reporting, and multi-language support, SumTotal Mobile truly provides
        customers anytime, anywhere access to their learning programs.
    ■   Robust Support for Matrix Relationships: SumTotal’s Strategic HCM solution provides
        out-of-the-box support for the often complex reporting relationships of that can exist within
        educational organizations – including support for matrix management.
    ■   Integrated Learning & Talent Capabilities: Because SumTotal’s solution is completely
        integrated across all learning and talent processes, organizations are able to take a
        holistic approach to their human resources programs. As a result, SumTotal provides
        organizations better visibility into their talent pipeline, better ability to find talent
        internally for specific projects, increased talent mobility to help retain high performers,
        and a more effective overall talent management strategy.
    ■   Critical Decision Making with Information: Educational organizations are often very
        metric driven – this includes key human capital metrics such as continuing education
        credits, charged hours, utilization, and process compliance. From providing tools to
        define, create and monitor these key metrics to working towards far-reaching strategic
        decisions that increase revenue, SumTotal’s Strategic Workforce Analytics product
        provides a complete set of analytical tools to help educational organizations track their
        key metrics and make better informed decisions.
Complete Workforce Management Capabilities
   ■   Control Workforce Costs: How can you account for every dollar spent on every
       workforce activity and then link those costs to projects, sales, or customers? With
       SumTotal’s Workforce Management solution project-based organizations can easily track
       all these variables as well as factor in different wages, premium pay, or partial shifts, while
       ensuring that bids for new business or contract renegotiations are profitable and accurate.
   ■   Increase Workforce Productivity: Incentive pay programs have been known to
       significantly increase productivity. Many businesses have their workforce management
       data in various applications — but lack the information to execute. The SumTotal
       Workforce Management solution is a centralized application that collects and transforms
       this data into meaningful information and then applies work and pay rules to create
       accurate, effective incentive pay plans. With SumTotal Workforce Management,
       supervisors and managers can find, diagnose, and solve workforce-related problems
       and incent behaviors that drive increased productivity with incentive pay programs. In
       addition, the software will identify actual time worked as well as nonproductive time
       associated with scheduled breaks, material delays, or any uncontrolled incidents.
   ■   Minimize Safety & Compliance Risk: Automatically track incidents, generate
       warning letters, provide audit trails for actions taken, and have it all tied directly to an
       employee’s record. With SumTotal’s Workforce Management solution, you can also
       capture and report on all hours worked, including hours of service rules, while setting
       alerts and reminders for when licenses are nearing expiration or recertification is
       required. Reduce the risk of compliance violations by correctly identifying and aligning
       professionals with appropriate certifications, training, and licenses, and tracking
       adherence. SumTotal’s Workforce Management solution can help you have the right
       people where and when you need them most.
   ■   Compliance with Bargaining Unit Work, Leave & Pay Rules: SumTotal’s fully-
       integrated, end-to-end solution removes the headache of trying to manually comply
       with complex work, leave and pay rules; along with the resultant grievances, fines, and
       employee relations issues.

Complete Expense Management Capabilities
   ■   Increased visibility into expense spend: For many educational organizations employee
       expenses represent the second largest controllable expense behind payroll. Yet, most
       organizations do not have good visibility into their overall business expense spending.
       Companies can access details on high level GL categories but will not be able to get a
       full breakdown of who, what, where, when and why on spending. SumTotal’s Expense
       Management solution delivers full access to your detailed expense spending data. This
       allows you to identify spending trends and patterns, consolidate data for merchant analysis
       and negotiation, view breakdowns of compliant and non-compliant expenses and quickly
       adapt to opportunities and risks. This increased visibility will reduce your overall spending
       while allowing more informed business decisions.
