a provider of software and services built to power higher education,
announced today that University
of the Cumberlands (UC) has chosen Banner®
by Ellucian as its SaaS (News - Alert)-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) system
that includes student, financial aid, HR and finance components. Banner
will enable UC to refine business processes across the university, help
manage its tremendous growth and integrate data from its multiple
campuses and online school.
University of the Cumberlands, a private liberal arts university based
in Williamsburg, Kentucky, has been in operation for more than 125
years. UC has continually adopted new technologies, keeping pace with
student needs, and today its reach extends beyond its residential campus
to include cutting-edge online and hybrid classroom communities. Over
the past 10 years, UC has seen incredible growth-enrollment has gone
from nearly 1,600 to more than 10,000 (almost half of which are
first-generation college students), and the school has created a
physical presence across the U.S. by opening locations in Seattle and
Dallas, with a future location planned in Washington, D.C.
"We went through a rigorous two-year evaluation process to find an ERP
solution that's right for who we ae today and that can scale, adapt,
and innovate with us as we look to the future," said University of the
Cumberlands VP of Information Services, Donnie Grimes, Ph.D., CISSP.
"For our institution, Banner was clearly the best software. Banner is a
well-evolved system with unmatched functionality and allows for
integration with the majority of other products we already use across
our campuses. By deploying Ellucian's SaaS-based software, each of our
functional units will be able to better embrace best practices and
improve the experience for faculty and students alike."
Built specifically for complex higher education environments, Banner by
Ellucian will help UC unify data across diverse university systems and
locations while streamlining business processes university-wide. The
solution, bolstered by Ellucian Ethos
platforms, will give users the ability to view and manage student and
university data in a single dashboard while providing complex reports
that can identify trends, report progress and inform decision-making.
The SaaS-based delivery model enhances disaster recovery capabilities
through a highly reliable, redundant system and allows users across
dispersed locations to access data in real-time.
"Through working with University of the Cumberlands over the past
decade, we have witnessed their tremendous growth and are thrilled to
provide them with a new solution to meet their now more complex needs,"
said Ellucian Senior Vice President of Sales, North American Markets,
Dan Maier. "We look forward to the impact the true benefits of the
cloud-flexibility, scalability and availability-will have for UC while
they continue to grow their online and on-campus presence, and execute
against their mission of providing a quality education while preparing
students for lives as servant leaders."
