Jenzabar®, Inc., the leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today that Southeastern Illinois College, based in Harrisburg, Illinois, has selected the Jenzabar EX Enterprise Resource Planning system and Jenzabar's Internet Campus Solution (JICS) to enhance student service by enabling online advising.

After a lengthy evaluation process of multiple vendors, Southeastern Illinois College selected the Jenzabar Total Campus Managementâ„¢ solution, combining Jenzabar EX and the fully-integrated JICS portal, to provide students and faculty advisors with a range of advising functions, including the ability to view current course schedules and future classes required for graduation. Southeastern Illinois College has been using the Jenzabar TE legacy system and chose to migrate to Jenzabar EX because it is economically efficient and would offer increased capabilities to students, faculty, and administrators.

Jenzabar's Internet Campus Solution (JICS), a portal solution designed exclusively for higher education, will provide Southeastern Illinois College with a single point of access to a virtually limitless number of online communications, Web self-service, community building, and e-learning applications.

"Following an extensive RFP process, it was determined that Jenzabar provided the best value for the cost and return on investment," says Greg McCulloch, Chief Information Officer at Southeastern Illinois College. "The college also considered the established seventeen-year business relationship when making our selection".
