Case Study: Bristol Students' Union

We've been using UnionCloud at Bristol SU for almost six years now and we've always been very impressed by the how powerful and easy to use features like elections and usergroup segmentation are.

Our favourite bit of functionality though, is the ability to link student data to other platforms like Airtable and Webflow using Integromat and UnionCloud's API. Using this we've been able to massively improve SU services for our students.

UnionCloud Features

Elections Run every one of your elections online, efficiently and effectively.

No matter what type of election it is; course representatives, NUS delegates, officers; manage categories, positions and the event itself from one platform.

Before voting even begins, guarantee every stage runs smoothly with the help of this tool. Promote elections and schedule automated email reminders for students to ensure good turnouts. Set parameters to ensure only the relevant people are voting. Monitor live statistics anywhere, anytime. And once voting is over, assess the results.

Clubs & Societies Manage hundreds of groups, clubs and societies in an intuitive and simple way.

Give societies the power to manage and update their own webpages. Or retain full control of this for yourself – manage membership in a way that’s tailored to you and your organisation.

Allow clubs and societies to create subsites that’ll broaden your site’s appeal and enrich the digital experience. Using these subsites they can then add their own content, post announcements, share news, list events, sell tickets for these and email their members.

Giving your students the content they crave and connecting with them has never been simpler.

Website Builder Build and manage an effective and mobile-friendly site that reflects you with ease

From front end drag-and-drop editing to back end design and development, this user-friendly, flexible tool makes keeping everything up-to-date simple.

Even those with minimal digital expertise will find uploading content, creating subsites, adding pages, links and widgets straightforward. And for those with more experience, editing in HTML is also possible.

Student Voice & Representation Discover what students have to say instantly

Create an online space for them to put views forward, start petitions and support the issues they consider important.

Give power to course reps with Digital Rep, so they can manage course feedback directly with students.

With these tools you have the opportunity to connect with and realise your students’ visions. It’s up to you how you use this connection to achieve goals.

Events Flexible ticketing options that can be adapted for all events and spaces

Promote events, schedule sales and sell tickets. Set up multiple ticket types for a single event. Schedule start and end dates and times for when these go on sale. Limit availability according to capacity. Produce tickets that can be redeemed with a barcode. Configure questions that’ll help gather extra data when a student selects an event.

And pull all this data into reports that can be tailored, making monitoring events, measuring success and developing future strategies simpler.

Volunteering & SkillS Seamlessly connect students with ways to learn new skills.

Enable external organisations to register with your institution and identify skill areas they can help develop. Give them the ability to upload and manage their own information. Sift, approve and promote only what suits your students, ensuring you offer the highest quality opportunities from reputable organisations.

Allow students to register and list skills they want to develop for themselves. Match them more effectively with organisations offering what they're after. Utilise the tool's capacity for students to record their own time and evidence skills (if it suits your Union) to help them stand out from the crowd.

Because one tool manages all of this, you can reduce the amount of time and resource it takes to give your students the very best development opportunities.

Reporting & Analytics Run reports on every aspect of your Union's digital performance

Produce post-activity charts, real-time statistics and shape dynamic KPIs on events, communications, engagement, sales - your institution's entire online activity.

Compare different datasets. Dig deeper into analysis with the ability to view demographic breakdowns. Report overall results or set specific parameters. Use your data. Bring it together in a meaningful way to easily and quickly make the bigger picture clearer.

Eshop Generate revenue by selling to your members with ease

Sell products, memberships and tickets online simply with the Eshop module. Sell merchandise, generate and record sales all in a smooth and simple way. Manage product categories, orders, promotions, sales, shipping charges and more in one place.

When it comes to selling memberships, product and tickets, set up an online shop and open up a world of retail opportunities.

API & Single Sign On use our powerful API to manage all the data that sits within the platform

You can use the API to transfer student data automatically to ensure full GDPR compliance. In addition, we can implement Single Sign On to make student sign in extremely simple, increasing engagement with things like elections.

Or use it to pull off events and groups into your own custom design, the power is in your hands!
