Higher Education Overview

Today, many colleges and universities are investing hefty amounts of their institutional budgets on enterprise-wide implementations of student management systems. The rationale is to replace legacy systems with robust, secure, scalable and extensible solutions that offer flexibility and growth. Successful higher education institutions are making it a practice to focus on the best way to communicate with their students.

Higher education institutions are being called on to deliver more with less, managing tight resources and thinning budgets while continuing to advance their institutional mission and operational and strategic goals. With rising government regulations and less public fund to support an ever-challenging economy, tailored best practices from Higher education industry are required along with an experienced IT partner to implement solutions that cater to industry needs in reducing cost, improving efficiency and retaining quality students.

More emphasis is now being paid on all the events and touch-points that make up the long-term relationship that a student has with his college or university. This relationship is now being defined as the student life-cycle. This student life-cycle is the main focal point of Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solutions Release 9.0.

Addvantum’s Scholarship Management System enables universities to track the performance of students who have been awarded scholarships to study abroad by external entities. Such scholarships are essentially provided by the university if its students fulfill certain university set criteria that helps them qualify for a scholarship to enroll in a specific university abroad. Because the university is awarding them this scholarship, they need a tracking mechanism that allows the performance of these students to be constantly monitored. Since funding is done by an external entity, the tracking of financials cannot take place. Scholarship Management System as proposed and implemented by Addvantum is a detailed and step-by-step procedure involving the following:
