Mercer U Renovates Administrative Systems

Mercer University will be deploying Campus Management's suite, One Campus Ecosystem. Mercer's implementation of the new system is expected to take 18 months or less and will include all of the vendor's software systems, including the student information system, Web portals, finance and human resources, application programming interfaces, and business intelligence software.

The school, which has 7,300 students, also will pilot the company's suite of e-learning services for support of the Moodle open-source learning management system. The campus, traditionally a BlackBoard WebCT user, has been testing Moodle within a single summer class.

"Campus Management's ecosystem will be a cornerstone of our vision for the future," said Mercer's CTO, Mickey Belote. "Their technology will provide a user-friendly experience and a rich feature set for all of our traditional and non-traditional students, regardless of which campus or program they choose. We are very excited to have found a partner to help us achieve our vision and a competitive edge in today's rapidly-changing market for higher education."

The management platform, which is in use in 1,100 colleges and universities, according to the company, provides integrated and centralized administrative and e-learning management and reporting software. CampusVue, a primary application in the suite, is a student services system with features for multi-catalog management, recruiting services tools, financial aid estimators, real-time tuition, billing and compliance-related reports, SMS text messaging, and workflow automation for academic progress and e-advising.
