Fisk University Selects Three Rivers Systems’ CAMS Enterprise as Its Higher Education ERP System

Cites Reliability, Ease of Use, and Improved Efficiency as Key Decision Criteria

St. Louis, MO: Fisk University, a private liberal arts university that is the oldest institution of higher learning in Nashville, Tennessee, has selected Three Rivers Systems’ CAMS Enterprise as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. Founded in 1866, Fisk has played a leading role in the education of African-Americans, with faculty and alumni who have been among the nation’s intellectual, artistic, and civic leaders in every generation since the University’s beginnings.

According to Dr. H. James Williams, President of Fisk University, “Our previous ERP from Ellucian Banner wasn’t meeting the high standards that we set for the University. Our users were going around the system because they found it difficult to use or didn’t trust the accuracy of its data. Our IT department was also frustrated with the ongoing need to use outside consultants in order to manage the system. CAMS Enterprise, on the other hand, is an easy-to-use, reliable solution with robust functionality that will put us back in control of the system. We’ve already identified several manual processes that can be automated, and we plan to take advantage of all its modules to help us grow and become more efficient.”

Amir Tajkarimi, Founder and President of Three Rivers Systems, welcomed Fisk University to the CAMS Community. “Fisk University is an iconic institution with a rich history of producing scholars and leaders at the local, national and international level. Its reputation for academic excellence is validated year after year by third party reviewers, and its Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Business disciplines are nationally renowned. Its future is even brighter than its past, and we’re honored that Fisk has chosen Three Rivers Systems to be its higher education software partner.”
