Product features

Achieve your faculty activity reporting needs

Converis supports Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) with the ability to capture the complete professional profile of your academic faculty. It has a built-in data model to record and track all professional activities across an institution with the ability to customize and configure the system to meet the current and future needs of the ever-changing, complex university.

Customize as needed

You can use it right out of the box. Or you can customize the workflows, templates, reports, and every key element of Converis to suit your organization.

Leverage the data you already have

Collect information once and use it many times. Converis connects to more than 50 different systems, including finance and library functions, institutional repositories, human resources, and publication databases.

Align with leading standards

You can rely on Web of Science Group as a partner for staying on top of trends and standards in research information management. Web of Science Group takes a leading role in initiatives like CERIF, CASRAI, AND ORCID.

Improve your workflows

Streamline and digitize the work that’s been done on paper, in email, or in legacy systems by managing structured, customizable workflows in Converis. One central system pulls in information from institutional data systems like Banner and PeopleSoft and tracks and records media mentions.

Make your work visible

Make research profiles, activities, and results visible online, increasing transparency and inspiring new collaborations within or outside your organization. In addition to supporting your research networking tools like VIVO.

Create powerful reporting

Stay on-strategy with live-data dashboards, indicators, charts, and tables for internal and external reporting. The state-of-the-art Converis user interface is specifically designed for reporting and presentation.

Specialized components for research management

Converis gives your organization complete support along the research lifecycle. These integrated modules handle the heavy lifting.

New Features in Converis 6

Maintenance mode

Export large volumes of data and undertake large-scale batch operations without locking end-users out of the system. The new maintenance mode places a system-wide CREATE/EDIT lock on the system objects allowing user requests to be addressed without incurring a negative impact on system performance.

Validation Engine

Be confident that consistent data is being entered into the system. The validation engine provides configuration administrators with additional tools that extend beyond data TYPE or FORMAT validation.

Record Snapshotting

Capture a view of a record at the time it enters a given workflow step to support audit trails and review processes.
