Higher education benchmarking services leader, NousCubane, today announced the acquisition of student experience platform, Ziplet, further strengthening the business’ position as a leading provider of data-led solutions for education providers around the world.

NousCubane CEO, Adam Gray, said: “Complexity within the higher education sector only continues to grow and data led solutions have an increasingly important role to play in helping leaders identify opportunities, measure impact and successfully lead change across their institution.

“By bringing Ziplet’s student experience platform together with NousCubane’s benchmarking and analysis capabilities, we are able to help more tertiary institutions make better informed decisions across their organisation.”

Ziplet was founded to provide education providers with a more effective way of checking in with their students to improve learning outcomes. It provides tertiary institutions with tools to collect real-time student feedback and insights to transform the student experience.

As part of NousCubane, Ziplet will access new growth opportunities across Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Canada while its customers benefit from accelerated investment in the platform to better support their needs.

Ziplet’s Founder CEO, Ben Barnett, said: “We are delighted to join the NousCubane team. This move strengthens our commitment to helping clients measure, understand and improve their student experience through our market-leading product.”

As Managing Director, Ben joins NousCubane's leadership team where he will continue to guide Ziplet's performance, operations and growth.

This acquisition further bolsters the NousCubane solution suite which over the past year has grown beyond its flagship benchmarking program and practice-sharing forum, UniForum, to also include teaching effort benchmarking and higher education market insights and analyses.

As part of Ziplet’s acquisition by NousCubane, it is seeking interest from universities to participate in the development of a Student Experience survey with internationally benchmarked data.

University leaders who would like more information about the new product, including participation in the first stage of its release, should contact [email protected].
