"We are pleased to collaborate with Jadu to provide our customers with more options that help address these challenges and help improve institutional performance, student engagement and communications"
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 11, 2011
Jadu and SunGard Higher Education are working together to help make it easier for higher education institutions to manage their vast Web properties and deliver the right information, to the right people, at the right time.
As a new member of the SunGard Higher Education Collaborative, a formal network of companies committed to providing high quality solutions tailored to the needs and requirements of higher education institutions, Jadu will provide new options for Web content management. Collaborative members work closely with SunGard Higher Education, taking advantage of specially designed tools and training, to give institutions a high degree of confidence in Collaborative member solutions.
A strong Web presence is increasingly important for maintaining a University's reputation, research and teaching quality. The online experience is fundamental to student service and recruitment, helping to attract quality local and international prospects as well as to improve engagement with current students and staff. At the same time, higher education institutions are facing shrinking budgets and increasing demands, which intensify the need to optimize resources and consolidate services.
Jadu, combined with SunGard Higher Education's digital campus solutions, will provide institutions with more options to help reduce the burden on IT staff and improve the quality and quantity of Web content. By controlling Web content on both internal and external sites, institutions can deliver a more consistent user experience that helps them assert and reinforce their values and mission.
"Jadu is delighted that our membership in the SunGard Higher Education Collaborative will help us to better support higher education in the U.S., the UK, and around the world," said Richard Friend, vice president of Global Business at Jadu. "Jadu's growing suite of integration widgets for the Banner Digital Campus will help open up new possibilities for institutions' digital landscapes."
"Keeping Web information consistent, current, accurate, and timely can present a significant challenge," said Rhett Burnham, vice president, product management, SunGard Higher Education. We are pleased to collaborate with Jadu to provide our customers with more options that help address these challenges and help improve institutional performance, student engagement and communications."
