St. Louis — May 31, 2011 — Four faith-based higher-education institutions spanning the Midwest, South and Southwest U.S. have selected CAMS® Enterprise, the flagship higher education management solution of Three Rivers Systems Inc., as their new academic enterprise resource planning, or ERP, system to manage their entire student lifecycles.

The four include American Baptist College, in Nashville, Tenn.; Baptist University of the Americas, in San Antonio; Catholic Distance University, in Hamilton, Va.; and Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis.

CAMS Enterprise is a seamless academic ERP written with pure Microsoft technology from the ground up to be a single solution for higher education management. With a client-validated rapid-implementation process, institutions quickly transition to the new system and enjoy greater accessibility, better automation, improved communication and deeper business intelligence.

Carol Daley, director of technology for Catholic Distance University, pointed to CAMS’ integration around a single, secured shared database as a major factor in the university’s decision.”As an institution dedicated to distance education, we must effectively build community online, and one way to do this is by offering our students, faculty and staff real-time access to wide-ranging services via Web-based portals. With its total integration, 100-percent Web-based platform and feature-richness, CAMS was by far the ERP choice that most fully met our needs,” she said.

CAMS includes a host of advanced automated features — CRM, online applications, online registration, financial aid, billing, fundraising, document tracking, integrated portals, built-in learning management and more — to manage the entire admissions-to-alumni student lifecycle for colleges and universities.

“We are happy to welcome these fine institutions to the rapidly expanding CAMS Community,” Amir Tajkarimi, company president and founder of Three Rivers Systems said. “They all share a common need for the most-advanced, integrated and scalable academic management system available — a need CAMS Enterprise fills for higher education institutions of all sizes around the globe. We are proud of our tradition of delivering a safe, secure dependable solution with predictable total cost of ownership and no surprises,” he added.
