Increase efficiencies across campus

Improving operational efficiency by leveraging professional higher education services

By partnering with Ellucian Professional Services, Hinds Community College was able to increase efficiencies across campus, thereby improving and enhancing the student experience.

With the pressure to do more with fewer resources, and to become more business-like in their outlook, institutions have embraced enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to increase efficiency and focus on the needs of their communities. However, if the true value proposition of ERP is not understood, or institutions lack the skill set among their staff to use the system to its fullest advantage, then it becomes a costly investment with few benefits.

Hinds Community College, located in Mississippi, faced such a challenge. By partnering with Ellucian Professional Services, Hinds was able to increase efficiencies across campus, thereby improving and enhancing the student experience. This case study shows how Hinds was able to get the most out of its ERP system to improve institutional efficiency.

Ovum’s case study explores how institutions can:

  1. Develop a working strategy for engaging professional services

  2. Improve student success through operational efficiencies

  3. Use professional services to ensure optimum use of an institution’s ERP
