Enterprise software company, TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE), has signed a new partnership with the Solomon Islands National University (SINU) to enable the university to transform student experiences.
As per the deal, the university rolled out TechnologyOne’s Student Management solution across its business and to its 4000 students, enabling students to register and pay their course fees online.
According to SINU, the deal came about when it opened the opportunity to implement a new student system to tender, and selected TechnologyOne as it best aligned with the university’s strategic and operational objectives.
SINU vice-chancellor, Dr Glynn Galo, said TechnologyOne’s extensive experience in the higher education sector was the reason behind its win.
“Our aim is to have greater collaboration and work as strategic partners with TechnologyOne. Signing up for a new system was as much about the partnership and longer term relationship, as it was with the immediate functionality for our students,” Dr Galo said.
Dr Galo added that the previous system in place did not have the broad functional capabilities required to enable SINU to provide an effective student experience. In addition, he mentioned that support for the legacy system was also very difficult to obtain because of the significant time zone difference.
“The new SINU Student Management System is a central repository of Student and Curriculum information supporting extensive student services efficiently and providing more accurate and timely reporting.
“As we roll out more functionality, our students will benefit from a superior level of self-service, greater transparency and real time visibility.”
TechnologyOne executive chairman, Adrian Di Marco, said the partnership highlighted the company’s position as an enterprise software provider of choice for universities.
“TechnologyOne has 28 years of experience of delivering software solutions for universities and TAFEs,” Di Marco said.
Di Marco stated that education is one of the key markets in which the company operates in.
“Through our understanding of the industry, we’re able to deliver solutions that meet the specific requirements of the higher education sector.
“We are delighted to be working with SINU to transform their student experience. Our solution will assist the university in remaining innovative, relevant, high quality and accessible to students,” he added.
