Not long ago, higher education was a face-to-face endeavor. Now it's being disrupted by pervasive new methodologies, global technologies, flipped classrooms, gamification and social media. Uncertainty and flux are the new normal for today's institution.
Los Angeles (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Three Rivers Systems Inc. will demonstrate CAMS Enterprise, its innovative, integrated and intelligent academic ERP at the WASC Academic Resource Conference held this week in Los Angeles from April 23-25. Short for “enterprise resource planning,” an ERP integrates the entire student lifecycle and business processes of an institution into a single, unified system.
While the conference is focused on helping member schools understand and prepare for accreditation and compliance, its theme of “As Others See Us: Higher Education 360” focuses on understanding and responding to outsider perspectives that are questioning traditional “business as usual” practices at higher education institutions.
According to Three Rivers Systems Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing, Jami Morshed, surviving and thriving in this new environment requires new thinking and agile approaches. “Not long ago, higher education was a face-to-face endeavor. Now it’s being disrupted by pervasive new methodologies, global technologies, “flipped” classrooms, “gamification” and social media. Uncertainty and flux are the “new normal” for today’s higher ed institution.”
To help address these challenges, WASC attendees will have a chance to see powerful, new features in Three Rivers Systems Inc.’s CAMS Enterprise academic ERP solution. According to Morshed, the company is pioneering advanced business analytics tools, cloud services and mobility to address the ongoing challenges higher-education leaders face in an unrelenting atmosphere of having to do more with less. “Today, sophisticated business and IT strategies are a must,” he said. Morshed added that CAMS Enterprise helps institutions achieve maximum efficiency and productivity so they can deliver the ultimate student learning experience, which he sees as every institution's goal.
Three Rivers Systems serves many WASC-accredited institutions, including William Jessup University, American Jewish University, California Northstate University and Marymount California University.
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States. WASC advances and validates quality ongoing school improvement by supporting its private and public elementary, secondary, and postsecondary member institutions to engage in a rigorous and relevant self-evaluation and peer review process that focuses on student learning. The Commission provides assistance to schools located in California, Hawaii, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas, American Samoa, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and East Asia.
