Ellucian Implementation Methodology

How it works

A collaborative approach. A proven methodology. Astute project management. Ellucian Professional Services combines all these factors so that solutions get delivered according to plan. We build in the proper schedules, milestones, processes, controls, and deliverables from project initiation to closure. And we layer in training opportunities so your team learns what they need to know during and after implementation.
