We started with a product designed to a specification written by the Midwest Higher Education Commission for its 800 schools in the Midwest. Since that time, we have continually optimized and enhanced our offerings to include features most desired by undergraduate programs, clinical programs, law and technical programs, and residency programs.
The IQ suite of products use a sophisticated rules-based algorithm that can handle complex scheduling needs and policies to generate efficient, conflict-free schedules, assign students to rotations to meet program requirements and satisfy student preferences.
Starting with optimizing facilities usage and avoiding time conflicts for faculty and then layering in student scheduling, functionality to allow sections of a course to start and end on different dates, scheduling against fixed rotation blocks, and other advanced features, we have been continually enhancing our offerings. Our sophisticated swapping logic scientifically “finds” ways to improve the solutions.
