Today’s announcement demonstrates the importance of improving market competitiveness in serving adults learners while maintaining operational efficiency and institutional transparency
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Destiny Solutions, the leading innovator of lifelong learning business solutions today announced an agreement with Portland State University (PSU) to revamp business systems for the university’s certificate programs to make them more accessible and affordable.
"Portland State's long-term viability in the certificate area depends upon a streamlined approach that improves access to our programs for adult learners and reduces costs," said Kevin Reynolds, vice provost for Academic Fiscal Strategies and Planning at Portland State University.
As part of the partnership, Destiny Solutions will help PSU to streamline its marketing, enrollment and administrative procedures from disaggregated databases to a single unified system. PSU’s School of Education and School of Extended Studies will be able to integrate marketing with administrative procedures and make it easier for students to research programs and courses, make comparisons and choose their career pathway. To help achieve this, PSU will utilize Destiny One, the lifelong learning business solution designed for the needs of non-traditional students. The solution includes a web-based enrollment system to offer students more registration and payment choices, including discount programs that PSU intends to make available.
Like many institutions, PSU has numerous silos of data that result in a costly “build and test” way to identify new courses and programs. Instead, PSU will utilize Destiny One’s technology platform to consolidate all records onto a single database, providing PSU with more accessible information about enrollment, courses and programs. Using this information with Destiny One’s curriculum management module, the university will reduce the time and cost involved in developing and introducing new curriculum for its students.
Using Destiny One, PSU will also be able to centralize and automate management of end-to-end finance and accounting processes, including reporting and auditing. PSU will support the Payment Card Industry’s Payment Application Data Security Standard version 2.0, the latest security standard to protect personal information and e-commerce transactions.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates the importance of improving market competitiveness in serving adults learners while maintaining operational efficiency and institutional transparency,” said Shaul Kuper, president and CEO of Destiny Solutions. “Destiny One is crafted exclusively with adult students in mind. It is the only business solution for non-traditional education that offers integrated constituent, enrollment and administrative management on a single software platform.”
