Atlanta — December 5, 2013 — Three Rivers Systems Inc. will demonstrate CAMS® Enterprise, its innovative, integrated and intelligent academic ERP at the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges annual meeting starting this weekend in Atlanta. 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, it will also address means for improving the overall institution and student learning. Workshop sessions include those dealing with “adaptive leadership for challenging times,” “enhancing the assessment of student learning” and “meeting the challenges of a changing higher education landscape.”
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. Ten years ago world economies were stable; today uncertainty and flux are the “new normal.”
To help address these challenges, SACSCOC attendees will have a chance to see powerful, new features in Three Rivers Systems Inc.’s CAMS Enterprise academic ERP solution.
According to Three Rivers Systems Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing Jami 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.
SACSCOC accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and some institutions in Latin America.
