Shared Resources for Higher Education

A Collaborative Initiative
Advantiv is leading a collaborative initiative with institutions and their vendors to create a new, community-based outcomes resource for enterprise software system planning and selection in higher education.
The purpose is to improve the justification, quality, and impact of enterprise software system selections through the intentional integration of measurable business outcomes, while reducing time, cost and risk for all parties involved.
A Community Service
We will provide any higher education institution with free use of DecisionDirector to record and maintain their evaluations of their vendors’ completed HECVAT questionnaires.
We will also provide vendors with free use of DecisionDirector to create and maintain HECVAT questionnaire responses.
Higher Ed Survey Tool RFP Resources
A Community Service
In 2017, changes in the higher education survey tool market led a number institutions to vocally consider a re-evaluation of their current survey tool strategy and provider(s). This re-evaluation trend has grown and, for many, it also includes a determination to seek and to share information about competitive alternatives. In response, we have teamed up with Orlando Leon, CIO at Fresno State University and Charlie Moran, CEO of Moran Technology Consulting to create a freely shareable set of Higher Education Survey Tool RFP resources.
Our Position, Policies, and Practices
We are 100% vendor neutral.
We have no stake in, or benefit in anyway from, a selection outcome.
We never reveal vendor response data without permission from the vendor.
We do not claim ownership of any client, consultant, or vendor data entered into DecisionDirector.
We never sell or otherwise distribute any of the data entered into DecisionDirector.
We have many consulting partners who have integrated DecisionDirector into their planning and selection methodologies, and their baseline requirements and other information into the DecisionDirector database.
Clients are free to use our baseline library or that of their chosen consultant, or a combination of both.
Vendors may establish baseline requirements of their own in DecisionDirector, for clients and prospects that wish to start with those.
We do whatever we can to help clients, consultants, and vendors be successful in using and benefiting from DecisionDirector, but we never provide unfair advantage or share inside information about the projects we support.
We hold all conversations in full confidence and do not discuss or share sensitive or competitive information.
We are committed to creating and supporting the best practices that lead to the best possible outcomes, and therefore are always open to constructive criticisms and suggestions.
