Higher Education Institutions Choose Jenzabar’s Strategic Planning and Decision Making Solutions

Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today that eight higher education institutions are adopting strategic solutions from Jenzabar to increase retention and improve decision making. Five of the eight chose Jenzabar’s Retention Management Solution (Jenzabar RMS), and three chose Jenzabar Capture, a robust data warehouse and analytics system for institutional intelligence.

Higher education institutions are increasingly aware of the benefits of gathering, organizing, and leveraging large stores of data to support strategic planning and decision making. Jenzabar RMS and Jenzabar Capture provide colleges and universities with executive level data and analyses designed to facilitate insightful business decisions, improving the planning and management of key business strategies that drive institutional success.

A suite of software and services, Jenzabar’s Retention Management Solution gives colleges and universities the capability to develop and execute more successful retention strategies. Jenzabar works with the institution to determine key factors that predict student attrition, and the information is used to build an automated alert system within the Jenzabar RMS infrastructure that consistently identifies at-risk students, alerts key campus personnel, and monitors the execution and results of intervention strategies. The outcome is a comprehensive retention system that engages the entire campus community in student retention to achieve both student and institutional success. Columbia College Chicago, Columbia College South Carolina, Grove City College, Lake Forest College, and Westminster College expect to increase retention rates through the adoption of Jenzabar RMS.

“Grove City College currently has a favorable retention rate, but we wanted a measurable to help us determine retention issues that we may not be aware of and distinguish which students are at a risk of leaving,” said Vincent DiStasi, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Grove City College. “Jenzabar’s Retention Management System will not only help us identify students who are at risk, it will warn us in time so that we can engage these students before they leave and maintain our high retention rates.”

Jenzabar’s Retention Management Solution consolidates and examines comprehensive historical and current campus data, giving institutions the information needed to identify the factors that impact retention. Campus personnel monitor at-risk situations online through the Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution portal. Combined with a suite of retention reports, institutions are able to track changes in student behavior and changes in institutional retention factors.

Offering strong reporting and analytical capabilities, Jenzabar Capture helps colleges and universities monitor the health of their institutions and provide executives with effective, actionable information. Berry College, Carroll University, and Mount Hood Community College recently selected Jenzabar Capture to gain easy access to institution-wide data and the analytics that provide valuable insights for institutional evaluation and planning.

“Mt. Hood Community College needs easy access to real time data, both current and historical, that can be leveraged to make strategic decisions,” said Michael Hay, Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer at Mt. Hood Community College. “Jenzabar Capture will pull records directly from our student information system, providing the ability to analyze, compare and consider data in new ways. This ability will support the department’s goal of transforming data into information that leads to knowledge and wisdom. We are confident that this solution will enable the College to better make informed decisions.”

Jenzabar Capture tools give executives direct access to critical data optimized for reporting and analysis. Key features include an intuitive standardized interface and assurance of data integrity, supporting the financial health, regulatory compliance, and the recruitment, retention, and fundraising success of the institution. With the ability to consolidate data from Jenzabar and other administrative systems, learning management systems, and other data sources across the campus, Capture allows the institution to analyze a wide range of office and project statistics from a single data source.

“Higher education institutions need to continuously monitor and adjust strategies to ensure that they have a positive effect on the institution’s financial bottom line,” said Robert A. Maginn, Jr., Jenzabar Chairman and CEO. “Jenzabar RMS and Capture provide institutions with access to relevant, actionable insights buried in their massive data stores that can be leveraged for strategic decision making and institutional success.”

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
