“Jenzabar EX stood out from all the other solutions we tested because of its visual appeal, the variety of modules available, and because it’s a tightly-integrated, proven system, which will help us deliver the highest-quality 21st century education.”
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 21, 2015
Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, strategies, and services for higher education, today announced that Garrett College has selected Jenzabar EX, an industry-leading Enterprise Resource Planning system designed specifically for higher education, to replace its legacy administrative system.
“Jenzabar’s completely integrated solution solves a plethora of issues for us—data availability and accuracy, workflow and process efficiencies, ease of use, and automation,” said Jami Marlies Reynolds, Director of Information Technology, CIO, and CTO at Garrett College. “Jenzabar EX stood out from all the other solutions we tested because of its visual appeal, the variety of modules available, and because it’s a tightly-integrated, proven system, which will help us deliver the highest-quality 21st century education.”
Garrett College will use its new Jenzabar EX system with Jenzabar Higher Reach, the powerful Continuing Education (CE) platform to support the fluctuating academic, financial, and scheduling needs of its community education, workforce development, and customized/contract training departments. The College is also implementing Jenzabar eLearning as its distance learning system, providing Garrett students and faculty with the contemporary tools they need to engage in high-quality online education.
Garrett College has also selected Jenzabar Retention as its student success system to help as many students as possible succeed in their educational endeavors with the College. Jenzabar Retention is an early alert and predictive modeling system that helps institutions intervene at the right time and in the right way to prevent at-risk students from leaving their school—regardless of whether it’s because of academic, social, or emotional challenges.
“Garrett College provides an incredible learning environment that transforms the lives of its students,” said Sam Burgio, VP and General Manager of the Jenzabar EX Business Unit. “The Jenzabar suite of offerings will serve as the technology backbone across the College and will play a key role in providing Garrett students with the best educational opportunities possible, well into the future.”
When Garrett College first set out to upgrade its ERP, it began a rigorous search looking at a wide variety of technology offerings on the market. During an extensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process, the field was narrowed down to three vendors invited to provide in-depth product demonstrations. Garrett College selected Jenzabar EX and the Jenzabar suite of products as the clear winner.
“The Jenzabar team was the most professional, thorough, and product savvy of all the vendors we met with,” said Jami Marlies Reynolds. “Our new Jenzabar Project Manager has a lot of experience and knowledge in higher education. I hold him to the fire a lot because we've never done anything like this before and we have a lot of questions. He continues to be patient and wonderful to work with. The entire Jenzabar team is doing an excellent job of supporting us through this critical transition.”
