FLAGLER COLLEGE EMBRACES JENZABARâ€™S INTERNET CAMPUS SOLUTION
Web Portal Will Enhance Campus Community
Cambridge, MA, September 21, 2005 â€” Jenzabar, Inc., the pioneer of Total Campus Management (TCM) solutions for higher education, today announced that Flagler College has selected Jenzabarâ€™s Internet Campus Solution (JICS) to provide Web-based services to its student population. Specifically, Jenzabarâ€™s Internet Campus Solution will be used to strengthen the Collegeâ€™s community by facilitating interaction and the flow of information between members of various constituent groups, as well as providing anytime, anywhere access to information for students, faculty and staff. The implementation of JICS matches up with mounting student expectations for an online-enabled college experience. JICS also will extend the value of the Jenzabar EX ERP system, which the College has been using since 2000.
As an institution that prides itself on providing a college experience focused on faculty-student interaction, Flagler College is looking to augment this interaction through online communication. “We see a great opportunity to invigorate Flaglerâ€™s community through Jenzabarâ€™s Internet Campus Solution,â€ said Joe Provenza, Flaglerâ€™s Director of Technology Services. â€œOur goal is to provide online resources that support on-campus activities, from campus-wide announcements to specific department, course or club communications. The JICS portal will enable â€˜one-to-manyâ€™ communications, allowing our faculty to interact with their students more easily and efficiently.â€
Jenzabarâ€™s Internet Campus Solution brings a seamless interface to all facets of student life from admission through graduation, delivering a key component for recruiting and retention strategies. JICS provides constituents inside and outside the institution with the information they need, when they need it. It unifies the user interface and point-of-entry for institution-wide applications and content, along with customizable views of department-specific, group-specific, and personalized information based on each userâ€™s defined role(s).
â€œOur leadership recognized that we needed a campus portal,â€ continued Provenza. â€œOur students want it, and it makes a difference to them, as students these days are used to instantaneous access to information. JICS provides a way to enhance the Flagler experience, delivering the self-service capabilities that many students are looking for while maintaining our personalized approach to each student.”
Among the many benefits delivered to the institution, JICS facilitates operational efficiencies through a continuous flow of information between departments, allowing staff to spend less time acquiring data, reducing duplication and avoiding data inconsistencies. JICS also delivers this information in a timely manner to drive strategic and tactical decisions. Additionally, with Jenzabarâ€™s move to the MicrosoftÃ’ .NET platform, Jenzabar products are well positioned to handle further enhancements and the expansion of Web services far into the future.
“We are seeing a significant increase in the adoption of Jenzabarâ€™s Internet Campus Solution,” said Robert A. Maginn, Chairman and CEO of Jenzabar, Inc. “Forward-thinking institutions, such as Flagler College, have come to realize that they can provide better service and meet student expectations with a campus portal. Integrating the portal with administrative and student information systems creates a very powerful platform that provides the foundation for our Total Campus Management framework. No other vendor provides such a tightly integrated package for constituent relationship management,â€ he added.
