Columbia College Selects Three Rivers Systems’ CAMS Enterprise as Its Higher Education ERP System

Cites Improved Efficiencies and Enhanced Analytics as Key Decision Criteria

St. Louis, MO: Columbia College, Canada’s longest established international and private college, has selected Three Rivers Systems’ CAMS Enterprise as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. Providing top quality academic programs to Canadian and international students from its downtown location in Vancouver, British Columbia, Columbia College will use CAMS Enterprise to improve institutional effectiveness by automating manual workflows and enhancing strategic decision-making capabilities through better business analytics.

According to Dr. Brenda Louie, Vice Principal at Columbia College, “We were looking to replace our homegrown student information system with a more comprehensive solution. CAMS Enterprise offered a fully integrated system that handles the complete lifecycle of our student population, from admissions to graduation and beyond. As an integrated solution, it will help us automate workflows that are currently handled manually and often result in duplicate data entry.” Dr. Louie added, “We’re just as excited to take advantage of the solution’s business analytics functionality that will enable us to improve our decision-making process based on real-time data that is collected, organized and reported through the system.”

Amir Tajkarimi, Founder and President of Three Rivers Systems, welcomed Columbia College to the CAMS Community. “Columbia College provides exceptional academic programs leading to Associate Degrees or transfer into a major university. It is an institution on the rise that recently upgraded its facilities to a beautiful new campus adjacent to Vancouver’s city centre and the waterfront. Columbia College’s adoption of CAMS Enterprise demonstrates its ongoing commitment to provide the best possible learning environment for its students through innovation and technology. We’re honored that Columbia College chose Three Rivers Systems as its higher education software partner.”
