Like so many other organizations, colleges and universities are facing increasing demands from their student base and increased competition to meet their goals. Among their challenges:

  • Departmental specific finance staff and process making it a challenge to develop a “one size fits all” model.
  • Having disparate systems and data repositories for accounting, HR, bookstore, class scheduling, purchasing, reporting, budgeting and more.
  • A culture that values collaboration and debate, which can draw out consensus and result in project timeline challenges.

The climate of global competition for top students and staff, reduced public funding, and more stringent compliance requirements, universities must be able to define long-term growth plans, analyze trends and scenarios, and plan for future excellence.
