June 23, 2014 (Mon): KDU University College (‘KDU’), a pioneer in Malaysian private education, has implemented Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions to streamline its administrative processes for improved student information and lifecycle management to support growth in student population.
“To achieve operational excellence in line supporting a sustainable future with student population growth, it was critical that we streamline our administrative and academic systems,” said Professor Khong Yoon Loong, Vice Chancellor of KDU University College Malaysia.
“With Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, KDU is now enabled to improve the administrative productivity and make information more readily available to all of our students, faculties, and staff under a fully integrated environment. We have seen a huge improvement in administrative services for our students after the implementation.”
The legacy information management system in the university was previously unable to integrate information from multiple campus departments to provide a holistic view of student activities. It also took a long period of time for student admission processing which hindered the campus users’ access for real-time and updated enrollment information.
With Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, KDU is able to improve information management for the entire university’s student lifecycle management whereby the student information will be seamlessly standardized to students, the records and admissions departments and other administrative offices.
“Oracle has a long history of supporting education institutions around the world. Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions enables universities to eliminate the barriers to efficient growth and superior student services,” said Nik Feizal Haidi Hanafi, Country Manager, Applications, Oracle Corporation, Malaysia.
“It has provided KDU a stable foundation with greater flexibility and agility to support the institutional program requirements, further improving the overall student experience and journey to student success.”
With the underlying pure Web-based architecture, Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions automatically mobile-enabled KDU campus users to access any Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions’ page through any Internet browsers anytime, anywhere.
Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions further improved the student user experience with an easy access to information, self-service applications, more convenient learning modes and streamlined student information systems from enrollment to alumni management.
Its dynamic user interface promotes student engagement and collaboration. Built on open standards, the solution facilitated KDU with communications and feedback mechanisms to gain the insights needed to retain students and help them achieve their goals in studies.
The modular structure of Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions offered KDU the capabilities to enhance strategic decision-making, facilitate more efficient information sharing between departments, and lessen the administrative burden.
Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions modules, including Recruiting and Admissions, Student Records, Gradebook, Campus Community, Self Service, and Student Financials, allowed KDU to move away from the traditional silo-based recording system into a fully integrated and automated environment.
