CampusIT, an education management systems provider, announced it is serving more than 400,000 higher education students around Europe on its cloud computing model.
Leveraging CampusIT's cloud based student interaction software, education institutions are able to communicate with their students in a simple and timely manner.
The online and mobile solutions available on cloud platform enable universities to engage with their students as active partners throughout their college lives from student recruitment to discussion forums and graduation registrations.
High education students in universities will benefit as institutions can offer a better overall service to the students. Students can experience improved information sharing with their university or college, company officials said.
“Universities are leading the way in the move to cloud computing as they need computing power on demand and to provide resources to their ever growing student populations,” said Tony Sheridan, CEO, CampusIT, in a statement. “Today's students who have grown up with Amazon and Facebook (News - Alert), now expect, the same on-demand, convenient services from their education providers.”
CampusIT works with many higher education institutes, the largest of which handles more than 20,000 registrations in a single month.
There is a demand for cloud based platforms as higher education institutes are under pressure to increase efficiencies due to complex and competitive education landscape, changing student demands, and funding cuts.
In October 2010, Advanced Business Solutions (ABS (News - Alert)), formerly COA Solutions, announced its partnership with CampusIT to integrate Advanced Business Solutions’ ABS financial management systems into CampusIT’s software, enabling education providers to fully streamline the student interaction from managing student inquiries through to processing student fees.
