With an eye to expanding in new international markets via Web services such as student mobility portals and online registration, Canadian University of Dubai has chosen CAMS Enterprise, the flagship disruptive academic management solution from Three Rivers Systems Inc. as its new enterprise resource planning system. A disruptive technology is an innovation creating a new market and value network to “disrupt” an existing market by displacing earlier technology.
In selecting CAMS Enterprise over Ellucian Banner, Dubai-based CUD signals its desire for a fundamentally different academic ERP systems built for the 21st century from the ground up with the latest Microsoft technology. CUD’s selection committee lauded CAMS’ major functional and feature areas such as ease of use, strong admissions, registration and financial-aid packages, degree-audit and billing modules, a variety of portals and business analytics tools.
CUD decision-makers also cited CAMS’ interoperability with other systems and Three Rivers Systems’ ability to execute an aggressive installation timeline. CAMS Enterprise implementations typically take half the time of others.
CAMS provides everything institutions need to manage the entire student lifecycle, including: online applications; registration and payment; business analytics; mobility; integrated financial aid; built-in degree audit; built-in portals; government-mandated reports and much more.
Canadian University of Dubai Chief Advancement Officer and CIO Chris Savard said references for CAMS Enterprise were impeccable and unanimously positive. “As part of our due diligence, we spoke with people at many of Three Rivers Systems’ prestigious international clients like Hult International Business School, The American University of Paris and The Petroleum Institute of Abu Dhabi. They all had rave reviews about the CAMS product and Three Rivers Systems’ customer support,” he said.
