University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Licenses Jenzabar's Flagship ERP System

Students, Faculty and Staff Will Benefit from Centralized, Integrated System

Cambridge, MA, October 31, 2005 - Jenzabar, Inc., the pioneer of Total Campus Management (TCM) solutions for higher education, will bring a centralized administrative system to the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor's campus community via the Jenzabar EX ERP system. The University also will utilize Jenzabar's Internet Campus Solution (JICS) Web portal and Learning Management System (LMS) in conjunction with the ERP system to provide students, faculty and staff with a fully-integrated set of applications with a single database in a user-friendly environment. These enhancements, particularly the expansion of online services, meet the University's need to consolidate student information and provide a superior user experience to each of its key constituent groups.

Built on the industry-leading Microsoft(R) SQL Server platform, Jenzabar EX offers UMHB a system set in a familiar environment-one that will require less training than many other systems in the marketplace. A long-standing customer of the Jenzabar companies, UMHB nonetheless considered alternative solutions; the University decided to move ahead with Jenzabar after an executive briefing with the UMHB President's Council, a campus-wide committee, reaffirmed users' confidence in the Jenzabar solution.

"As a 160-year-old institution, we maintain a great deal of data, data that is particularly valuable in our development efforts," said Edd Martin, Vice President for Finance and Administration at UMHB. "The Jenzabar EX system will help us better manage this information as well as bring efficiencies and improvements to our current campus community. Not only will our data management and processing capabilities be vastly improved, but also system users will have access to more information. Students will be able to go to a single site to access all their student information, from registering for classes to viewing financial aid and billing statements online. Our staff will benefit from an improved data flow and a significant reduction in manual data entry."

Jenzabar EX is one of the pillars of Jenzabar's Total Campus Management (TCM) framework. Helping client institutions improve the delivery of services and information to their constituents is the premise behind all Jenzabar offerings, and the ability to easily access comprehensive, real-time information is primary to the Jenzabar EX solution. Jenzabar EX helps institutions manage data through the entire student lifecycle, from Admissions and Registration through Financial Aid, Student Life, and Advising to Alumni Development. The fully-integrated business office applications in Jenzabar EX align administrative tasks in Human Resources, Purchasing, and Finance, including General Ledger, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable.

"Jenzabar EX will provide a solid platform for our continuing growth and the increasing complexities of data management," noted Shawn Kung, Director of Information Technology at UMHB. "With the help of Jenzabar's implementation team we expect an easy transition and, with the system's reporting capabilities, the support burden on our IT staff should be considerably reduced. The system also is flexible enough to meet the specific requirements of each department, and students, faculty and staff will be much more at ease with the common Windows(r)-based interface."

"We appreciate the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor's confidence in our products and services," said Robert A. Maginn, Chairman and CEO of Jenzabar, Inc. "Many software vendors do not take into consideration the potential for disruption that conversion to a new system can cause. At Jenzabar we strive to make these transitions as seamless and non-intrusive as possible. With the foundation of Jenzabar EX, along with our Web portal and learning management system, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor will be able to realize the benefits of Total Campus Management through service improvements to all its constituents."
