BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jenzabar, a leading technology innovator in higher education serving the new student, announced today that institutions in the traditional sector selected Jenzabar’s student information systems (SIS) more than any other provider in 2020, according to a report released by Tambellini Group. In a year when institutions had to make careful decisions with their technology investments, colleges and universities turned to Jenzabar’s solutions to drive mission-critical digital transformation programs.
Student information systems are a core component of an institution’s technology infrastructure. As challenges from before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic continue to pressure colleges and universities, many institutions are consolidating vendors to minimize complexity, streamline operations, and deliver more holistic experiences. According to the Tambellini Group, “85% of institutions have contracted for a single vendor solution over the last 30 years.” In 2020, more institutions trusted Jenzabar to help them navigate through an unprecedented crisis. Half of all Jenzabar’s SIS selections in 2020 were upgrades, demonstrating that institutions trusted more in Jenzabar’s solutions, expertise, and vision, than a new offering from another vendor.
“Prior to the pandemic, the student market was poised to experience substantial growth in 2020,” said Vicki Tambellini, President and CEO of Tambellini Group. “The pandemic made institutions reconsider their financial priorities and pause some of their technology projects. This year, Tambellini research shows that institutions made buying decisions based on technical capabilities, ease of integration and implementation, as well as long-term product roadmaps that promise to help them through the current crisis and the next frontier.”
Built to address the evolving needs of higher education, Jenzabar Student is a comprehensive, fully scalable SIS that is integrated into the Jenzabar One ERP ecosystem. Jenzabar SONIS is a powerful yet cost-effective student information system that helps specialized institutions, growing institutions, or institutions with limited staff improve efficiencies for on-the-go constituents.
“2020 was a challenging year for higher education institutions, but their resiliency to drive student success encouraged them to press onward and select technologies that promise to deliver on that mission,” said Ling Chai Maginn, Founder, President, and CEO of Jenzabar. “Together, Jenzabar and institutions are heading into the new academic year stronger than ever. We’re proud to be a strategic partner to institutions that are determined to grow and evolve alongside today’s rapidly changing landscape.”
