St. Louis — February 19, 2014 — Three Rivers Systems Inc. is offering a complimentary, no obligation “health check” of higher-education SIS/ERPs, the management systems that run academic and business operations for colleges and universities, the company announced today. The Business Solution Assessment, as the check-up is also called, measures how well an academic management system meets a higher education institution’s needs based on its stated mission, objectives and strategies.

According to Three Rivers Systems Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing Jami Morshed, “Many higher education leaders today know that their current management solutions aren’t up to par, but they don’t have the time or resources to evaluate them and build a business case for change. Their expertise and strategic focus is rightfully aimed at advancing learning and student success for current and future generations.”
On the other hand, he said, Three Rivers Systems has been doing these evaluations for nearly 30 years while developing a fool-proof methodology designed to find a solution that meets the institution’s unique business requirements.

“We assist executive leadership in getting a 360-degree view of all potential benefits an ERP can offer and how they align with the institution’s strategic initiatives. We also address functional areas and the technical needs of the IT department. These create a firm foundation for developing a robust business case on investment and a solid ROI analysis,” Morshed added.

The assessment is also a guide to understanding the true total cost of ownership of implementing a new academic management system beyond the initial software investment, such as the number of resources needed for pre- and post-implementation, the real time to implement, the scope of the consulting effort, required hardware and any long-term software maintenance and support fees.

This Business Solution Assessment health check does not require a major time commitment on the part of university administrators, is complimentary and obligation-free, Morshed said.
