Dean Evans & Associates, Inc. Announces Powerful Enhancements to EMS Campus™ Academic Scheduling and Event Management Software

New Version of Campus Wide Scheduling Solution Providing Increased Efficiency for Busy Higher Education Entities

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - September 8, 2009) - Dean Evans & Associates, Inc. (www.dea.com) today outlined the new functionality in an update to their popular EMS Campus academic scheduling and event management software. Higher education campuses throughout the U.S. rely on the product to streamline the labor-intensive academic scheduling process, simplify the booking of meeting and event space, optimize classroom utilization and generate automatically updated web calendars.

Early adopters of EMS Campus have been largely responsible for suggesting the new features that are available in EMS Campus 2.1. Among them are:

--  Streamlined processing of changes from SIS
--  "At a glance" reporting of course changes
--  Automated room assignment swapping for courses
--  Increased flexibility in determining course space sharing
    

"The new features that have been added to course synchronizing will make a huge difference for us," says Erin Ridley, User Support Analyst for the North Orange County Community College District. "The district is comprised of three campuses, each with their own database. New functionality in EMS Campus 2.1 will save each campus numerous hours. Our users are very excited about implementing the update and taking advantage of all the enhancements."

Other functionality in the latest release includes significant catering enhancements (such as the ability to define Production Areas), additional facility utilization reporting and "business intelligence" tools, and new mobile device capability.

The company reports that sales of EMS Campus continue to accelerate, most noticeably in recent months. In bringing these customers online, a number of new integrations with Datatel Colleague, SunGard Banner® and Jenzabar® student information systems have been successfully completed.

Detailed information on the new version of EMS Campus is available now in free webinars (www.dea.com/NewsAndEvents/FreeWebinars.aspx), directly from the company's sales consultants and at www.dea.com.
