The Jenzabar team really understood our unique business goals and focused on helping us put in place the system that, in the end, exceeded our financial and operational aspirations

Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today that Charleston Southern University leveraged the Jenzabar EX enterprise resource planning system and Jenzabar’s Internet Campus Solution (JICS) to manage and integrate all their business office and student information systems and data.

Designed exclusively for higher education, Jenzabar EX gives CSU the technological power to instantly share and deliver key data between offices across the entire campus, significantly streamlining and improving the quality of workflow. Jenzabar’s Internet Campus Solution portal helps CSU staff, faculty, students and alumni easily access the institution’s database at any time from any internet browser through a simple intuitive interface. The university moved the entire campus to an efficient, streamlined, and easily accessible online system. Jenzabar technology was utilized to reduce labor, save space, increase the speed and quality of information flow and processing, improve responsiveness to students and administrative needs, and go paperless.

“We knew that Jenzabar was leading the higher education industry technologically, but it was their hands-on partnership approach that really stood out for us,” said Rusty Bruns, CIO at Charleston Southern University. “The Jenzabar team really understood our unique business goals and focused on helping us put in place the system that, in the end, exceeded our financial and operational aspirations.”

A partnership between Jenzabar and Nolij, a document image and data integration system, was also of key importance to the CSU technology team with a non-programming integration capability that allows for simple, direct collaboration. The number of paper documents being stored throughout the campus had become a burden and simple tasks such as forms processing was cumbersome and static. Capitalizing on Jenzabar systems’ ability to integrate seamlessly with Nolij, Charleston Southern University was able to easily scan 1.52 million pages of formally paper files and make them immediately accessible to the entire campus, freeing up 720 sq. ft. of valuable office space in the process. The new system houses important data in electronic folders that integrates all types of files including paper documents, email, web content, MS Office documents, and multimedia files, making a truly automated system.

“The expertise we have gained through working with the Jenzabar team has facilitated CSU’s technological acceleration,” said Lisa Fleming, Director of Computer Operations at Charleston Southern University. “The robustness and flexibility of the system has enabled us to advance a primary print focused, labor intensive system, and completely automate and clean up the whole campus, data-wise. We’ve gone paperless.”

“Jenzabar solutions address numerous goals and key initiatives at colleges and universities as they evolve,” said Robert A. Maginn, Jr., Jenzabar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “With a new objective to go paperless and improve efficiency across campus, CSU has leveraged their Jenzabar technology to significantly reduce costs and time associated with paper transcripts. The University’s effective use of their Jenzabar software is a model of efficiency and we will continue to provide ongoing support as their goals develop.”
