About the Company
Unisocs started out as an idea when a university student was struggling to keep on top of his study. He needed something to keep himself motivated. He needed targets to aim for, and to see a visual representation of his progress.
So, Unisocs was born. After performing some market research to students at The University of Liverpool, he found that he wasn’t alone.
Unisocs won a national competition run by leading e-learning technologies experts Jisc (jisc.ac.uk). Jisc jumped on the idea and provided additional funding of £35000 to launch Unisocs.
Unisocs has received massive coverage across all major universities in the UK. Unisocs was invited to the Digital Festival held at the Birmingham in 2014, where they met with hundreds of prospective purchases of the software from colleges and universities in the UK. Unisocs also held a talk at the event to roughly 200 decision-makers from universities, with very positive feedback.
Unisocs has also been showcased at AppsWorld UK, Imperial College London, Birmingham University & University of Liverpool.
The Unisocs software is built as a web application, with two native mobile phone applications for iOS and Android, both of which are live on their respective app stores.
The web application can be accessed by visiting www.unisocs.co.uk and registering for an account.
Once registered, a user can list all of their modules that they re working on (e.g. Biology 101, Evolution... etc) and input the recommended amount of study hours the user should perform in their own time. The recommended amount is a required value across all universities, which all students are given.
Once that s done, they simply track whenever they have performed any study, either by using the web application, or through the mobile app.
Students can see visually how their study is progressing, with helpful graphs to guide them. The software is also gamified, meaning students receive accolades for achieving certain set goals, motivating them to keep studying. The gamified side of it could be used in the future to partner with businesses and offer discounts and freebies when students achieve their goals.
Additionally, students can also input their tutor s email address into the system. Their tutor will then receive a weekly breakdown of the student s progress. This option is only available to those colleges and universities who have purchased a licence from Unisocs. The cost of a licence is around £10000 per annum per university to receive tutor feedback (which is a simple click of a button to enable for any university).
A full overview of what the software can do is available on the website: www.unisocs.co.uk
Important: Unisocs is a tracking software at the core of it. It can be used for any sector, not just studying. It wouldn t require much work to rebrand the software as a fitness app, for instance, to allow users to track their workouts. Any sector which could benefit from tracking data, Unisocs can work with.
