Mountain Pass Solutions Faculty Management System Experiences Rapid Growth Among Higher Education Medical and Dental Schools

Mountain Pass SmartPathTM selected by growing number of medical and dental schools seeking configurable workflow for unique needs of higher education institutions.

YPSILANTI, Mich., Oct 29, 2020 – Mountain Pass Solutions (MPS), a leading provider of faculty management systems, reports rapid growth of their SmartPath™ software among higher education institutions – resulting in a 140% increase in recurring revenues in just one year. A significant percentage of this growth can be attributed to medical and dental schools seeking a configurable software solution to streamline the appointment, promotion and tenure process for faculty – whether the process is currently being managed virtually or onsite.

“We needed software to assist with the faculty affairs lifecycle process from end-to-end, as well as with continuous quality improvement and accreditation,” shared Deirdre Pitts, Interim Associate Dean for Academic, Faculty Affairs and Diversity & Inclusion at OUWB. “SmartPath allows us to improve quality and efficiency across all of our key faculty related processes, while also capturing and reporting on faculty information in a way that aligns with our unique needs.” Read the full OUWB case study here.

MPS helps clients streamline faculty affairs processes with simplified lifecycle management, improved data quality and reduction of administrative burdens. For example, after adopting the SmartPath software, one faculty affairs team saw:

  • An 85% reduction in call volumes
  • Error rates decreased by 90%
  • Quantified savings of thousands of dollars each year on printing and mailing costs

“Medical and dental schools need a full-featured faculty management system tailored to their specific needs,” says Tom Simon, MPS CEO. “Our unique approach allows clients to streamline and easily manage everything from onboarding and credentialing to tracking career events and tenure in a single, integrated system that can be deployed quickly and cost effectively.”

Using SmartPath to streamline and digitize faculty processes can also save higher education institutions significant time – both in staff time expended and expediting timelines. For example, one school of dentistry recently completed a study* evaluating the appointment, onboarding, and credentialing of adjunct faculty. Utilizing MPS SmartPath software, they realized a 75% reduction in effort and reduced the time to complete these processes from two or more months to less than two weeks.
