American Samoa CC Upgrades Administration Management

American Samoa Community College has gone public with its intention to buy software and services from Datatel to build an administrative system and enhance services to its community of users. The school will be using Datatel Colleague and ActiveCampus Portal to replace a legacy system.

"We chose to partner with Datatel because we were very impressed with its experience in higher education, as well as its stability, solid reputation and advanced technology," said Grace T. Mareko, CIO of the college. "With ActiveCampus Portal as Colleague's front-end, we expect to bring the different parts of our campus closer together to ensure our students' success."

The college will integrate ActiveCampus Portal, a Web-based enterprise work environment and collaboration system, with Colleague, an enterprise resource planning application, to provide better communications among the school's constituents of students, faculty and staff. The portal, which is based on Microsoft SharePoint technology, provides a dashboard interface to monitor performance metrics of the school. Colleague integrates modules for student information management, financial aid, finance, human resources and alumni management.

The college has 1,500 students and is located just outside Pago Pago, American Samoa's capital.
