XU upgrades IT processes for student admin system

CAGAYAN DE ORO NEWS ONLINE - Xavier University (XU)  has selected Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solutions (PECS) to transform the school’s Information Technology (IT) processes while upgrading existing systems for student administration.

The world’s leading student system and alumni development solution for higher education, PECS will replace the Enrolment Information System (EIS) that XU has been using in managing students for several years.

As XU aims not only to manage the academic records, entry and reporting of student grades,  PECS will also manage the key components of the student lifecycle from the earliest recruitment stage, admission, enrolment, student activities, graduation, up to alumni relations in support of  XU’s educational apostolate and the missions of teaching, research, social outreach and apostolic formation.

The student lifecycle management and information system will be beneficial to XU as it supports the future of an online campus which connects people, data, and systems across departments and campuses to improve service and reduce costs.
The system would manage the entire lifecycle seamlessly at all levels and campuses in a secure, stable environment to support XU’s academic mission and goals by streamlining productivity and optimizing resources and  provide a self-service functionality for all campus users.
The student management and information system is an integrated system for managing all student related services and business operations. 

The web-based architecture will simplify the school’s maintenance and support future growth, following the following modules:
 PeopleSoft Enterprise Student Administration, PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Community, PeopleSoft Recruiting and Admissions, PeopleSoft Enterprise Student Records, PeopleSoft Enterprise Academic Advisement, PeopleSoft Enterprise Student Financials, PeopleSoft Enterprise Student Financial Aid, PeopleSoft Enterprise Gradebook, PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Self Service and PeopleSoft Enterprise Contributor Relations.
The benefits that XU  will enjoy  using Oracle’s comprehensive suite of applications include  Enhanced technology for the institution, efficiency in processes, integrated and consistent information, easier reporting, user-friendliness of the system, access to data, ability to provide better customer service, increased functionality, improved cross-departmental functioning and increased security of data.
This project will be deployed by Techlogix, a Platinum Partner of the Oracle Partner Network.
“We selected Oracle because it answers our requirement for an integrated system that can manage the lifecycle of the students from the earliest recruitment stage up to the point that they become alumni,” said Harriet B. Fernandez, XU Director for Computing and Information Services Office.
          “Our previous system could no longer sustain the growing needs of the University, thus, we are thrilled to discover that PECS supports the future growth of Xavier University, she added. - XU/PIA
