Homepage before logging in

The Annual Performance Platform is a simple, efficient way to smooth the transition of your faculty and administration to digital annual performance review format. This beta system was custom built for CCBC, but can be adjusted to any school or program that wishes to streamline and modernize the annual reviews process without a steep learning curve. Built specifically for ease of use by low-level computer users, APP also has the advanced features for the savvy user; the ability to upload and display videos, pdfs and more.

Highlights:

  • User-friendly signup and easy online help
  • Choosing the discipline during signup displays the available coordinators
  • Coordinators signing up are matched to the list and automatically promoted. Coordinator back-end includes a page with all submitted annual reports that are ready for review. They also receive an email whenever a report is marked as “Ready for review”.
  • Printed annual reviews are automatically formatted for paper output with all relevant information. See example
  • Simple administration back-end to enter schools, campuses, departments, disciplines and coordinators.

Based on the most used worldwide and flexible web platform, WordPress, APP is ready for extensive customization and expansion, as well as the future upgrades – you will not be at the mercy of a walled-in, completely proprietary software that becomes obsolete within a couple of years. Please contact us if you’re interested in an APP for your educational institution or program.
