Education technology enterprise Ellucian is collaborating with Miles College in Birmingham, Alabama, in the USA, to modernise the college’s technology operations. A new Ellucian customer and one of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Miles College joins more than 1,100 institutions worldwide in the cloud with Ellucian and more than 500 institutions in the cloud with their full SIS/ERP.
Miles College is implementing Ellucian Colleague SaaS, a comprehensive, modern, and cloud-based ERP to support the institution’s digital transformation strategy that focuses on building an accessible learning environment for students. Upgrading systems will provide students with an online, self-service experience for registration and course enrollment, with easy access to grades and a holistic view of financial aid and overall financial standing. Integrated data across platforms will deliver greater insights to campus leaders, and IT administrators will recognise efficiencies and greater security.
“Miles College is an innovative leader focused on providing an environment that positions students for success and we are pleased to welcome them to the Ellucian customer community,” said Laura Ipsen, President and CEO, Ellucian. “Leveraging Colleague’s SaaS delivery model, Miles College will streamline processes and modernize operations for an overall improved user experience for students, faculty and staff. We look forward to a strong partnership accelerating the institution’s digital transformation to support its growing number of students.”
