Orlando, Fla. — February 13, 2013 — As ABACC, the Association of Business Administrators of Christian Colleges, embarks on its 54th annual conference this week in Orlando, Fla., automating business best-practices will be a top-of-mind concern. It’s no secret in today’s secular society that recruiting the best students and meeting fundraising goals are more challenging than ever for faith-based colleges and universities.
To overcome these challenges, many college administrators are re-evaluating the effectiveness of their academic ERPs and student information systems by asking tough questions about their technology’s ability to adapt to the “disruptive” environment that has become the new normal across today’s higher education landscape
Some 22 ABACC member schools have already insulated their institutions against these problems by selecting CAMS Enterprise, the only disruptive academic ERP designed for today’s fast-paced, complex, disruptive higher education environment. Three Rivers Systems will be demonstrating CAMS Enterprise’s new features like mobility and business analytics in Booth 315 at the ABACC conference.
According to Three Rivers Systems Inc. Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Jami Morshed, “Our clients know colleges today can’t fulfill their financial requirements and attract tomorrow’s students with yesterday’s technology.
That’s why ABACC schools and other Christian colleges from coast-to-coast are switching to CAMS Enterprise while saying good-bye to their outdated higher-education management systems,” he added.
Faith-based schools are one of Three Rivers Systems’ largest customer segments.
CAMS provides everything institutions need to manage the entire student lifecycle, including online applications; registration and payment; business analytics; mobility; integrated financial aid; built-in degree audit; built-in portals; state-mandated reports and much more.
“Many faith-based Three Rivers Systems clients enjoy high conversion rates by using the CAMS Enterprise recruiting module to find, attract and communicate with prospective students. Recruiters can automate outreach activities, targeting specific groups for mailings, phone calls, visits and more,” Morshed said.
Southwestern Assemblies of God University, for example, an ABACC member, realized significant productivity gains. Christian colleges across the U.S. are saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually with CAMS Enterprise while their huge increases in productivity allow them to focus their resources on better serving students.
