The software provides a platform for the College to help manage its growing annual enrolments, automate student administration and course scheduling, and supply local and international students with online self-service functionality.
A limited pilot version of the implementation will be ready in October and the formal launch will take place in time for next year’s student intake in January next year.
ICMS attracts more than 1000 students annually from across 50 countries.
Some of the key considerations for siding with Tripoint for the deal was due to its ability to cut down implementation time from 18 months to less than eight months.
It is able to do this through specifically configuring Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solution in a template offering for the Australian market, along with having an implementation methodology in place.
In addition, ICMS required a demonstrable tight working relationship between its software vendor and service organisation.
Under the deal, Tripoint will follow a four-stage project management strategy to plan, design, build/integrate and manage implementation. It will also supply customised training materials to support ICMS to help switch to the new system.
“We wanted a supplier who was prepared to partner with us to develop a solution and who could understand the way we operate,” ICMS general manager, Frank Prestipino, said.
