Report Frequently Asked Questions
Five working days. In periods of high demand i.e. when the new yearly metrics are released, this may take slightly longer. If you have a more urgent requirement please let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate.
We produce all reports in standard PDF format, and they're delivered via email. The flip-book format available on our web site is for ease of web viewing only, however we can also supply your report in this flip-book format. The link to your flip-book version would be available when you login to your Online Intelligence account (to which you will have free access). If you wish to have this option please let us know.
We're licensed to use HEBCI return data from HESA. The data is ingested into our online platform and each report is based on this data, with further insights derived from this base data. Every UK university is required to return HEBCI data every year to HESA.
We accept standard university Purchase Orders and can supply a pro-forma invoice on request, this is the usual method of ordering. In some cases we will have to be setup as a new supplier and we'll also supply all details necessary for this.
We also accept payments by card. Please contact us if you wish to pay by card and we'll send you an email link to our payment gateway.
We strongly recommend that two groups are defined for your report, usually a smaller local group, then a larger standard university group, e.g. Russell Group. Both these groups can be defined for any number of universities and you can choose any UK universities for any group. You can define the same universities in either group.
Defining two groups ensure you get the most out of your University Business Intelligence Report.
We're happy to revise your report until you are satisfied e.g. you've missed a university from one of your groups.
