Why choose Pulse

Pulse provides a complete view of strategic improvement plans all in one place, removing the need for spreadsheets, documents and presentations. Pulse frees up resources by making tracking, monitoring and reporting simple.

Holistic views

Understanding the overall status of your plans can be hard when using multiple systems.

Pulse makes it simple through a clean, easy to read interface that gives a holistic view of your planning enabling you to easily identify progress issues.

Task assignment

Making your team accountable for their actions is critical to ensuring success at each stage of your plans.

Pulse makes it simple to assign tasks to your team for every milestone created and add statuses and track their progress to completion.

Milestone tracking

Ensuring key milestones are met is vital to the success of your school improvement plans.

Pulse enables you to see the status of the tasks assigned to each milestone and quickly tells you which ones are on track and which need your focus.

Action management

Managing your actions across the district to ensure initiatives aren’t duplicated is not easy through multiple systems.

Pulse enables any improvement actions to be logged whether they are part of strategic plans or not, enabling all initiatives to be managed centrally.

Progress tracking

Understanding if your actions are truly making an impact is difficult if you don’t track them against how your community feel.

Pulse shows the effect of the actions you log through trends in your climate feedback highlighting which have been successful and which haven’t.

Effortless reporting

Pulling together progress reports from various sources coupled with their distribution to your teams can be resource intensive.

Pulse delivers strategic planning reports in Word format at the click of a button with your priorities, milestones and tasks all listed with their status.

Trusted software

Pulse is built following the guidelines of key acts as the privacy of staff, students and parents is of utmost importance to us. Satchel has also signed the Project Unicorn EdTech vendor pledge and the Student Privacy Pledge.
