Ellucian Experience Shortlisted for 2021 SaaS Awards
International Software Awards Program Announces Finalists
DALLAS, TX and RESTON, VA — Ellucian, the leading higher education technology solutions provider, today announced that Ellucian Experience is a finalist for the 2021 SaaS Awards Program in the Best SaaS Product for Nonprofits or Education category. Experience is a SaaS-based, fully extensible user experience platform that simplifies everyday tasks for all higher education constituents through a single application framework and personalized dashboard.
Experience integrates both Ellucian and non-Ellucian higher ed solutions through a single user interface, reducing system login time by up to 75% (via single sign-on). The platform delivers instant access to content and real-time data with individual configurable “cards,” allowing students to check classes, grades and schedules, connect with advisors, stay up to date on financial aid, and much more. Launched in North America earlier this year and worldwide in July, more than 160 institutions have already selected Ellucian Experience.
“We are honored to be a finalist for the SaaS Awards for Ellucian Experience, just as many institutions are embracing the platform’s value in reducing friction and streamlining administrative efforts,” said Mariam Tariq, SVP, Product Management, Ellucian. “At Ellucian, our focus is on developing innovative, SaaS-first technologies that support higher education institutions and help turn their campuses into open, flexible, extensible ecosystems.”
Now in its sixth year of celebrating software innovation, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia, EMEA and UK. Categories for 2021 include Best Enterprise-Level SaaS and Best Data-Driven SaaS, alongside new categories including ‘Bespoke SaaS Solution’.
“Just as SaaS technologies have been vital in pivoting organizational functions to respond to global crises, they will be essential as we look forward to returning to normal levels of productivity,” said James Williams, Head of Operations for the SaaS Awards.
“We’ve seen remarkably innovative solutions across all conceivable areas of industry. They represent truly innovative thinkers in the SaaS industry, whether they’re freshly-funded disruptors or established names.”
