NNU started exploring new ways technology could help with process efficiencies and growth goals. “Our projected enrollment numbers are growing, and we need to leverage new technologies to keep up,” said David Tarrant, Vice President of Financial Affairs at Northwest Nazarene University. “Jenzabar JX’s modern functionality will help us navigate the rapidly changing world of higher education. The improved student engagement will increase collaboration with students throughout the student lifecycle. Bottom line, Jenzabar JX is a better value than other products in the marketplace.”
Jenzabar JX offers NNU an easy transition to a new platform (Java), better mobile tools, and new capabilities in enrollment and advancement. NNU will move to Jenzabar JX modularly, giving them the CRMs and functionality they need when they need them. “The Jenzabar team understood our needs and our budget,” said Tarrant. “After a full evaluation of systems in the market, Jenzabar offered us the long-term value we were seeking.”
“During a selection process, Jenzabar truly embraces the institution’s requests and requirements, creating a collaborative environment from the first meeting,” said Sashi Parthasarathi, Vice President and General Manager of the Jenzabar JX Business Unit. “We listened to the needs of Northwest Nazarene University and presented them with a solution best suited for the future of the school.”
Jenzabar JX is being implemented at eleven institutions this year and will be implemented at twenty eight more in early 2015. The modules being implemented are Jenzabar Advancement, Jenzabar A/R Management, and Jenzabar Enrollment CRM. Jenzabar JX increases ways to engage with students, providing mobile access and self-service for all constituents. Modern, intuitive workflow gives the right staff the right information quickly and accurately, resulting in better communications and collaboration.
