Long Beach City College Switches On Enrollment System

Southern California community college Long Beach City College has gone live with a new Cognos-based enrollment management system that was designed by Irvine, CA-based professional services firm e2e Analytix.

Prior to installing the new system, LBCC, which has two main campuses and multiple satellites that support nine schools and 34 departments, handled its enrollment via manual spreadsheets. With no reporting, continuity, or standard practices, and with lengthy error corrections, the school’s enrollment management budgeting and planning took up to three months to compile, consolidate, and implement.

LBCC tapped e2e Analytix, which specializes in higher education, to design a web-based enrollment management system using Cognos Enterprise Planning software from Cognos Inc. (Ottawa, Ontario). Using Cognos for enrollment management was a unique application for Cognos, according to Dan Galuppo, e2e’s director of professional services, but the result delivers real-time data collection, consolidation, workflow, and calculations to help LBCC enrollment staff make faster and more informed decisions.

"Our new system provides flexible and powerful model development with the Cognos Analyst component and supports any business planning or customizing of the enrollment management model,” said Linda Umbdenstock, LBCC’s administrative dean of planning in a prepared statement. “The solution dramatically reduced the amount of time to process, consolidate and implement forecasts. It provided real-time service cost and expense planning per semester."
