Modern, agile Cloud solutions designed specifically for higher education

It’s time to move to the Cloud

Today’s higher education institutions must be responsive to the changing needs of faculty, staff, and students—and an enterprise resource planning system (ERP) is what makes it happen.

The decision to deploy a technologically advanced ERP solution is more than an IT exercise. It’s a strategic one that will shape everything from how well you provide student service to how efficiently and effectively you can run your organizational processes. You need a flexible, state-of-the-art ERP to meet the demands of campus operations—and you need an evolved Cloud solution that represents the future of higher education technology: Software as a Service (SaaS).

Ellucian’s SaaS solutions provide a cutting-edge deployment model for Banner® by Ellucian and Colleague® by Ellucian.

Our SaaS solutions include the same breadth of functionality and higher education-specific business processes that you’ve come to expect from both Banner and Colleague—but the SaaS offerings provide the most functionally complete and unified ERP SaaS solution designed for higher education.
