Huron Consulting Group Launches Subscription-Based ecrt Model and ecrt 4.0 to Address Effort Reporting Certification in Higher Education
Huron Education Solutions Empower Research Institutions with Compliant Effort Reporting
The new model’s predictable subscription-based pricing structure is ideal for institutions facing requirements associated with federal effort reporting regulations that have a small group of affected employees, few internal resources to dedicate to meeting this need, or lower levels of research funding. Like the original tool, ecrt’s subscription-based model will help institutions reduce costs and streamline activities, while minimizing requirements for internal staffing and professional technical support.
“The subscription model empowers institutions to improve faculty
productivity and minimize administrative burdens without compromising
In addition to the launch of the new subscription-based model, Huron Education announced ecrt 4.0, which has been redesigned to improve functionality and flexibility for both software-licensed and subscription-based clients. The ecrt 4.0 upgrade includes:
- Redesigned end-user experience to allow for even easier certification, including a real-time task list and a single certification page
- Ability to load and review all payroll types (base, supplemental, and other) and focus on Institutional Base Salary for primary certification
- Flexible installation configurations to meet an institution’s needs whether as a single installation on the institution’s servers, multiple institutions in a shared services environment, or hosted on Huron Education’s own servers
- Comprehensive functionality to enter, track, manage, and adjust both proposed and actual commitments, including cost share commitments
“Huron Education’s ecrt solution has been implemented at more than 70 research institutions,” said Bedell. “Our success results from our understanding of the importance and challenges of compliant effort reporting.”
