ERP Goals and Objectives

The University is seeking to accomplish the following broad–based goals and objectives with the new system to mitigate or eliminate the aforementioned concerns:

  • Replace legacy systems and existing interconnected modules with a functionally integrated system that will provide a “state-of-the-art” technical infrastructure and empower functional users to better serve students, faculty, staff, and other constituents of the university community (one vendor/application/platform that will provide services for admissions, recruiting, student records and registration, financial aid, degree audit, human resource management, time and attendance, payroll, finance, accounts payable, accounts receivable, accounting, research accounting, purchasing, inventory, fixed assets, budgeting, housing, position control, grants management, alumni and advancement, business intelligence and reporting and operational workflow);
  • Utilize a thin client deployment topology (completely web-based);
  • Eliminate paper and forms where feasible and sensible;
  • Provide easy access to data and information without compromising security and regulatory requirements;
  • Develop new, more efficient processes that fully leverage the technology investment and eliminate data and knowledge silos on campus;
  • Empower functional users as well as customers with more control over system function, service, and scheduling.
