Jenzabar’s hosted enterprise software helps a start-up university save time—and money
Azusa Pacific Online University, based in Azusa, Calif., began searching for a reliable Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform to run its systems and courses before it opened its virtual doors to students in June 2011. At that time, Azusa Pacific was a start-up online institution with no infrastructure, and it needed an all-hosted solution that was rapidly deployable.
Above all else, administrators needed a system that required little maintenance or hassle. After careful deliberation, Azusa Pacific invested in Jenzabar EX, a comprehensive, fully scalable administrative software platform designed specifically for use in higher education.
“Azusa Pacific Online University had started with no students and has served over 400 students to date in less than one year,” said Don Davis, the school’s vice president and chief operating officer. “A key component to our success was Jenzabar’s willingness to use a rapid deployment methodology, bringing us live in less than 100 days. Jenzabar EX is a turnkey solution for Azusa. Our IT department can focus on giving staff the service and troubleshooting they need.”
