REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle today announced that Lorain County Community College (LCCC) will be using Oracle Cloud Applications to fuel enrollment, efficiency and foster student success.
LCCC has a strong commitment to empowering a thriving community. Working in close partnership with the local high schools and universities, LCCC labors to ensure every student in the area has the opportunity to achieve their goals through education. To help foster this mission, the college needed to modernize and simplify its IT infrastructure with solutions that could improve efficiency amongst its staff and deliver a modern student experience.
With limited IT resources, LCCC looked to the cloud to help meet its objectives. Today, the college is starting to reap the benefits of Oracle Student Engagement and Oracle Student Recruiting and is currently implementing Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud, Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Cloud and Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud services.
"The success of our students is paramount," said Jonathan Volpe, vice president for Administrative Services & Treasurer, Lorain County Community College. "To best serve their needs, we had to enhance both our back-end and front-end systems to deliver more efficiency amongst our staff and a better experience for our students. When we reviewed systems, the ROI of Oracle Cloud was clear. With the intelligence and agility of these offerings, we are able to put a renewed energy and focus on recruiting the next generation of learners."
LCCC will have the automated tools and intelligence they need to help enhance recruiting and deliver a personalized, modern student experience. For example, the college can more effectively identify and engage prospective students outside of their traditional recruiting areas using social interaction, email communications and targeted advertising.
Coupled with Oracle Cloud Applications for Oracle ERP Cloud , Oracle EPM Cloud and Oracle HCM Cloud, LCCC will have the foundation they need to further enhance student recruitment, strategic planning, and financial and talent management with new levels of efficiency and insight.
"Higher education is at a crossroad and entities need to evolve and modernize to meet the needs of 21st-century students," said Vivian Wong, group vice president, Higher Education Development, Oracle. "With Oracle Cloud, Lorain County has the technology needed to support their entire organization, from how they manage their finances and people, to how they engage, recruit and retain students."
Oracle Consulting Services and Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Gold-level member, Navigator Management Partners are core to managing the successful implementation of these solutions.
