Jenzabar Offers Higher Reach Module for Departmental Data Parsing
- By Dian Schaffhauser
Jenzabar has released a new add-on to its continuing education administration application that allows for a separation of data and workflow by business unit. Content Level Security for Higher Reach lets colleges and universities manage data and content at the organizational level, rather than at the institutional level.
According to the company, schools have requested a separation of data and workflows by business unit without actually having two systems running in parallel. "[Content Level Security] gives them the ability to do this by creating--in effect--separate systems from a user standpoint that can be aligned with business units, departments, colleges, locations, etc. without having separate systems," explained spokeswoman Carina Ganias. She said the school runs one system with one database and one reporting infrastructure but can create logically separated user systems that are secure. "This increases usability and decreases cost leading to a dramatic ROI improvement," she added.
"The functionality offered by our Higher Reach solution is truly unique in the continuing education community, and now with Content Level Security, the usability of the Higher Reach solution increases even more, yet the cost is significantly reduced," said Robert Maginn, Jr., company chairman and CEO. "With this new release, users will continue to use Higher Reach the same way as before; however, now they'll receive tailored roles and the institution's investment is preserved."
The program requires implementation of Higher Reach, Jenzabar's administrative system.
