With Digital Measures by Watermark, faculty members’ teaching, research and service activities are easier to capture and more accessible. Faculty spend less time entering their accomplishments, and administrators have the most current information for promoting their university, celebrating faculty, and streamlining reporting for review processes, accreditation and more. In addition to collecting the teaching, service, research, and professional development work of faculty, institutions leverage Digital Measures by Watermark to complete complex, multi-step processes such as annual reviews, promotion and tenure, post-tenure review, and sabbatical applications.

The company recently released a new innovation, a CV Imports feature, with patent-pending technology that expedites the process of entering a faculty member’s Curriculum Vitae information into Watermark. Easier and faster than any other in-market option, the company’s CV Imports feature was designed to significantly reduce the data-entry burden on faculty so that they can focus their time on teaching, service, and research efforts. During an initial pilot earlier this year, institutions demonstrated a time savings of up to 80 percent.
“While we see the majority of EdTech solutions focused on student learning, the reality is that most institutions continue to struggle with collecting and reporting on comprehensive, up-to-date faculty activity information,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “Watermark is delivering a “breakthrough” solution here that addresses this need, empowering faculty and administrators to focus more of their efforts on how to use their data to make critical process improvements. We congratulate Watermark and are thrilled to present them with our marquee Overall EdTech Solution of the Year award.”
