Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
Decision Academic, the industry's leading academic advising and curriculum management company, today added Brandon University to the company's growing list of Degree Navigator™ and Catalog Navigator™ customers. Brandon University chose Degree Navigator and Catalog Navigator, Decision Academic's on demand academic advising and catalog management solutions, over other vendors for its Web-based accessibility, integration capabilities and ease of use.
Degree Navigator enables institutions to more efficiently manage student degree information, accelerating the degree audit and approval process for advisors, administrators and students. With Catalog Navigator, simple content control and management allows institutions to provide up-to-the minute catalog information for both students and staff. Flexibility was key to Brandon University's choice to select Decision Academic. Using Degree Navigator and Catalog Navigator, Brandon University can quickly process approvals, as well as simply communicate relevant degree information with students in an up-to-the minute, structured and timely manner. In addition, Brandon University can readily integrate Degree Navigator and Catalog Navigator with other Decision Academic products from their Navigator Suite.
"We believe that Degree and Catalog Navigator will enhance student satisfaction. We completed a thorough review of academic advising and curriculum management vendors and chose Decision Academic for its capacity to deliver a Web-accessible, integration capable solution in a timely manner," Al Dunthorne, Director, Information Technology Services, Brandon University. "Decision Academic demonstrated that Degree and Catalog Navigator were easy to use for advisors, administrators and students with different levels of technology sophistication. Our ability to speed our degree audit and approval process allows us to focus on student guidance rather than on paper trails and troubleshooting. As well, and very early on, Decision Academic impressed us with their responsive customer service and attention to detail, which, along with advanced product features, proved to be a winning combination."
