Enterprise resource management software providers Campus Management and Workday are both rolling out updates to their product lineups ahead of the annual Educause conference next week, and both companies are emphasizing their products' mobile features.
Campus Management launched CampusNexus, a combination of its CampusVue system and Talisma consumer relationship management software. While CampusNexus includes CRM features, but the company will also offer the applications separately.
Workday, which aims to have a full student information system on the market by the end of 2016, released its first component, Workday Student Recruiting, from that suite. Liz Dietz, a vice president at Workday, said the company is focused on building a flexible student information system for nontraditional students and students pursuing credits that don't conform to the standard credit hour. Future components will follow the "student lifecycle," Dietz said, beginning with admissions and curriculum management, and later, financial aid and student records.
