North Carolina State University Implements Destiny One to Help Improve Enrollment and Student Experience Pioneering continuing education division modernizes constituent, enrollment and administrative management processes and consolidates many disparate systems
TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Destiny Solutions today announced that North Carolina State University's McKimmon Center for Extension and Continuing Education (MCE&CE), a 28,000 student center named in honor of the service of the continuing education pioneer, Dr. Jane S. McKimmon, has successfully implemented Destiny One to enhance constituent engagement, increase enrollment and improve customer service.
"From the very beginning, we chose Destiny Solutions because they have the products that satisfy our continuing education business needs now and also our future needs, as our programs and services evolve," said Alice Warren, vice provost, Continuing Education. "Our experience with the implementation of Destiny One is proof that institutions can undertake a business infrastructure realignment that results in a new view of information and solid business processes without vast customizations."
Operating eight distinct units, each offering multifaceted services and programs, MCE&CE was challenged by disparate business systems and processes. Systems for program offerings, enrollment and registration, marketing and administration simply weren't interfacing with one another, which hampered business operations, collaboration and compliance, and hindered improvements to enrollment, student self-service and overall student satisfaction.
By extending North Carolina State University's PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solution with Destiny One, MCE&CE has been able to retire numerous legacy systems, centralize common administrative processes and fortify brand cohesion among its operating units. Furthermore, through Destiny One's flexible architecture, MCE&CE units now have greater agility to execute their own constituent engagement strategies, while gaining the economies of a shared services platform and one version of the truth for reporting and business intelligence of enrollments, courses and other key business indicators.
Today the new system supports approximately 40 users and thousands of students, and will scale to other campus units during 2012.
"With Destiny One, North Carolina State University is able to leverage a unified business suite designed exclusively for non-traditional education. With best practice workflows, pre-built integrations and implementation methodologies, Destiny One empowers NCSU with better business improvements with IT investments, business and IT agility, and lower total cost of ownership," said Shaul Kuper, president and CEO of Destiny Solutions. "We look forward to our continued work with MCE&CE and providing greater visibility, capabilities and business value to both their organization and students alike."
