Cloud based services for Student Unions.

Society Management Features

Use the tabs to see a brief description of each feature of the society management software that SU Cloud offers. We will be releasing video demonstrations of each section in the coming months. 

We have listed the currently available features here and a handful of the features that will be available soon below – there’s much more we haven’t listed that is planned. If you have specific requirements please do get in touch and we can add custom functionality in most cases.

With the introduction of GDPR; maintaining a compliant freshers fair has become a lot more challenging. Thankfully, we have developed a fully compliant tool which will enable you to maximise your membership numbers both as a Students’ Union and Club or Society.

Moreover, automatically send out information regarding your Club / Societies, and as a Students’ Union you can include essential information for your members. This society management tool is a good example of how the features from SU Cloud are refined with university clubs in mind. 

How does it work?

There are two methods of data capture, the first where details are captured by the club or society committee member using a mobile phone, with a secondary input method available which can be displayed on a laptop at your stall allowing interested persons to type in their details and receive further information electronically.

Once details have been captured, a GDPR compliance email is sent to the interested party letting them know how they can opt out of further information along with information of how to join the club or society they were interested in.

As a club or society you can then use communication tools such as email and SMS to send details of your upcoming events such as socials or training sessions.

Core Features
  • GDPR Compliant
  • Detailed signup statistics
  • Fully configurable
  • Secure

Easily send text messages or emails to thousands of your union, club or society members with just a few clicks.

You can specify groups of members that messages should be sent to, or send it to everyone who is involved with your club.

As a Student Union you can configure a footer that is appended to all emails your clubs and societies send.

As a club or society you can send email or text reminders about your upcoming events such as give it a go, socials or your first fixture or meetups.

Keeping track of bookings for facilities such as playing fields, conference rooms and vehicles can be time consuming and cumbersome. Our facility booking tool allows easy management of all of your transport, room and facility bookings from a simple online tool.

Updates are sent automatically at each stage of a booking, when a club or society requests a booking the Students Union will receive an email notifying them of the booking request, the club or society is then notified when the booking is either accepted or rejected.

Coming Soon: DVLA integration to perform drivers’ license checks for bookings. This can give you the confidence that your drivers hold the correct categories for the vehicles they wish to book and are within your insurance limits for any penalties they have on their license.

Core Features
  • Fully configurable
  • Rental vehicle bookings
  • Coach bookings
  • Room bookings
  • Facility bookings (Swimming Pools, Fields etc)

Elections within clubs and societies are often performed in sub optimal ways. During our research phase we found there were a number of election methods employed with very few clubs or societies reporting that they are happy with the way in which their elections were conducted.

Our club/society election tool allows you to ensure that elections across all of your clubs and societies are conducted fairly and within the parameters you define and relieves committee members of the usual social stress induced by conducting elections.

As a student union you can define rules around elections which are enforced to ensure all of your club and society elections are conducted in a fair and appropriate manner.

Our system has been subjected to extensive performance testing and tuning to ensure that even if every club and society in the country decide to conduct their elections at the same time, it will scale to meet this demand.

Core Features
  • Define when elections can take place.
  • Define your own committee positions, or allow clubs / societies to do so.
  • Secure, Scalable & Reliable.
  • First & Second Choice Voting.
  • Optional YouTube integration.
  • Fully Configurable.

With tens of thousands of items owned by Students’ Unions it can often be a mammoth challenge keeping track of everything, especially when an insurance audit is looming. Our asset management tool allows you to manage all of your assets no matter what they are.

As a student union you can benefit from intelligent decision making, if your clubs and societies have been keeping the database up to date with faults and repairs you can see at a glance what the state of equipment for a given club is. Our tool can enable you to make intelligent decisions on funding applications with full fault tracking.

Each club/society can manage their own assets and you can configure what the allowable activities are, for example, you can restrict who is allowed to add or remove items, or who can add notes on items and much more. When you’re getting started you may choose to allow your clubs to perform any actions on assets and then remove this access later to allow you to conduct a full audit of assets reported. Once this has been performed you may choose to only allow assets to have fault reports added to them but not be modified or deleted.

The system is fully configurable to your needs, and if there’s something we aren’t currently catering for please get in touch and we will do our best to implement this additional functionality for you.

Core Features
  • Make Intelligent Finance Decisions
  • Searchable
  • Upload pictures
  • Comprehensive Access Configuration
  • Track damage & repairs
