Ad Astra Information Systems serves higher education institutions worldwide, offering data-informed software solutions and professional services to effectively allocate space and faculty resources, forecast demand, and accelerate student completions. When CEO Tom Shaver launched Ad Astra in 1996, he understood that space management was important and complex. However, measuring space utilization alone wasn’t enough. First, measurement didn’t improve utilization; it confirmed the need to improve. Second, space was only part of the equation. Scheduling needed to not only allocate space, but also faculty resources; to deliver instruction, and enable students to graduate on time.
