Boston, MA -- Jenzabar®, Inc., the leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today that Louisiana State University Continuing Education has selected Jenzabar Non-Traditional System (Jenzabar NTS) to consolidate various departmental administrative systems and to obtain insightful student data for a better understanding of the University's non-traditional students.
Prior to selecting Jenzabar NTS, each program area at LSU Continuing Education was running on separate administrative systems that were tailored for specific program needs, making it difficult to analyze information across programs. During the selection process, LSU Continuing Education emphasized the importance of support for both its credit and non-credit programs and the capability to better identify, segment, and communicate with students.
"We chose the Jenzabar Non-Traditional System with the goal of consolidating our operations on a single platform," says Doug Weimer, executive director of LSU Continuing Education. "This administrative system is flexible enough to handle future growth and is the cost-effective solution to increase efficiencies among offices."
Jenzabar Non-Traditional System will enable LSU Continuing Education to dramatically increase the level of service it provides to its students, faculty, and internal offices. Students will receive a tailored and personalized experience based on their history, interest, and demographics. Faculty can utilize the system to obtain student data and determine how to best communicate and interact with each individual. Jenzabar NTS will also provide the power to set up new sections of course offerings in real time, accommodate flexible course dates, and audit financial, enrollment, and academic transactions.
"We are happy to add LSU Continuing Education as a partner, and we are eager to work with them to accomplish their goals," says Robert A. Maginn, Jr., Jenzabar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Jenzabar is confident that the combination of our technological approach, strategic counseling, and implementation methodology will help them achieve institutional success."
LSU Continuing Education extends the resources of Louisiana State University to meet the educational needs of Louisiana citizens. Continuing Education provides courses each year to 36,000 local, national, and international registrants and acts as a catalyst for innovative and effective outreach and engagement with the community.
