BOSTON, MA—October 25, 2018 – Jenzabar, a leading technology innovator in higher education serving the new student, today announced new enhancements to its Jenzabar One cloud-based student system that improves and simplifies the student experience. Through Jenzabar’s new mobile student engagement tools, integrated platform and simplified user interface, higher education institutions will be able to deliver modern campus services that increase engagement and make it easier for the new student to reach their highest potential.
Today’s students are digital natives, very comfortable with their mobile devices and expect their communications with institutions to be effortless. The new student expects 24/7 access to information and a higher-level user experience in all of their digital interactions including with their educational institution. In addition, the new traditional higher education student is shifting to become an adult learner over the age of 25, trying to balance work, school and family, and needing more flexible educational and support programs to fit their needs.
“Students find university digital services incredibly frustrating to use, with too many steps in the processes, and information that’s hard to find and hard to get answers about when needed,” said Ling Chai Maginn, President and CEO of Jenzabar. “Colleges and universities must adapt to the changing expectations of the new higher ed student. With Jenzabar One, campuses can easily transition to a cloud-based student-centered approach that brings a new level of agility to accommodate this wider variety of students in today’s higher education ecosystem and allow them to become more competitive.”
Jenzabar One is a unified student system that enables higher education institutions to become more agile and responsive to the demanding needs and expectations of the new student. The newly enhanced suite puts the student at the center with the following new features:
- Mobile access to more easily manage day-to-day life on campus and empower students. Jenzabar One can now become an integral part of the daily life of students by using their mobile devices to take care of all of their campus needs. Its mobile-ready modules create self-service capabilities for students so that they can now register for classes, pay their bill, or connect with advisors from anywhere at any time. Students are more accountable and engaged with easy, instant access to real-time student performance for overall academic success.
- Integrated, flexible and unified student system to simplify the student experience. Jenzabar One has been re-designed around the needs of the new student to create an integrated, modern cloud-ready student system, incorporating data and processes from ERP, finance, human resources and its student information system (SIS) modules. Students can navigate with ease and access all of the information they need from their device.
With Jenzabar One, higher education institutions have greater power and flexibility to choose which modules they need and integrate them easily. Campuses can simplify processes, streamline operations and modernize their infrastructure to enhance operational efficiencies and eliminate siloed bureaucracy.
