ATLANTA, Sept. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Governments and Universities are focused on increasing access to Higher Education to grow the global knowledge economy, looking for ways to make Education more affordable for mass consumption and more relevant to the changing workplace. As a result, Universities are questioning who will run and manage the University of the future. Universities worldwide are rethinking how they recruit, retain, and measure the performance of their increasingly young workforce, and they are seeing that workforce as a totality regardless of their role and contribution to the University.
SAP and EPI-USE have the technology and the experience to provide Universities with a single platform for Universities to manage and drive these changes which will have profound effects on how Higher Education is delivered and consumed.
To help Universities respond to these challenges, SAP offers a suite of cloud-based business applications for managing the total University workforce, including: SuccessFactors, FieldGlass and Concur. Together these applications provide a suite of solutions for recruitment, professional development and training, managing compensation and to streamline travel planning and expense transactions.
Malcolm Woodfield, Global Head, Higher Education & Research, SAP
"The University campus is a place of teaching and research, but it is also a workplace for hundreds of thousands of people. As a workplace, centers of education are changing dramatically, not only for teachers and researchers, but also for the thousands who contribute to running the education enterprise. As more routine work processes are digitized and automated, schools and colleges are increasingly focused on investing in people who add value to the core mission of teaching and research. SAP and EPI-USE have the experience, the platform, and the tools to help education providers re-imagine their workforce strategy and implement far-reaching changes to ensure that education is accessible, affordable, and relevant for the next generation of students."
Philip Piek, Senior Executive, EPI-USE America
