A few years ago, St. Joseph’s College of Nursing made the transition to Jenzabar® SONIS, a powerful yet cost effective student information system (SIS) designed specifically to help smaller and specialized higher education institutions improve efficiencies across their campus for all of their on-the-go constituents. Jenzabar SONIS empowers users to manage all aspects of their school’s administrative tasks online and provides integrated services for admissions, registration, grading, billing, course management, and other administrative functions.
Jenzabar SONIS wasn’t the first SIS that St. Joseph’s tried. They originally switched to computer-based administration in 1991, but the results were far from perfect. Even with the new software, the staff at St. Joseph’s was still performing many tasks by hand, such as manually entering and retrieving data.
“About 6 or 7 years ago, support was beginning to decline”, says Cheryl Thomas, Registrar at St. Joseph’s. “Every time I called our old vendor, there would be fewer and fewer support people on board. It was at that time we were made aware of SONISWEB. This made us realize it was time to change.” So St. Joseph’s began looking at other systems. “We compared several options, and Jenzabar SONIS was really the best value,” says Cheryl. Jenzabar SONIS had everything that St. Joseph’s needed to ease the administrative burdens they had been struggling with for years and the top-notch customer support to help them thrive. Yet they couldn’t have anticipated all of the ways that the powerful yet affordable Jenzabar SONIS SIS would benefit the college.
