East West University Becomes an Early Adopter of Oracle's Optimized Campus Offering

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 5, 2012) - Higher Technology Solutions (HTS), a leader in Higher Education Campus Solutions consulting, has released the Optimized Campus implementation model for Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. HTS has worked with Oracle over the past 24 months to bring this unique implementation model to market; one that utilizes the Oracle On Demand Campus Cloud Model to be able to deliver native PeopleSoft Campus Solutions functionality at an affordable and predictable cost.

The HTS Optimized Campus model can deliver a PeopleSoft Campus Solutions implementation in a much shorter time frame than a traditional implementation. By utilizing a strategic consulting approach, institutions can significantly lower implementation time from the average 18 to 24 months to roughly six to nine months.

The HTS Optimized Campus model is a revolutionary implementation model in the Higher Education market because it will allow schools with smaller enrollment numbers the opportunity to use a state of the art system to stay competitive in today's ever-changing industry. The model is based on prescribed pricing and allows the budgetary needs for software to move from a capital budget expense to an operational cost. Smaller budgets are easily accommodated without affecting product or service quality, making Optimized Campus affordable to all institutions, whether they are public, private, community colleges or emerging schools.

"HTS' Optimized Campus can help change the student system landscape and how schools look at implementing their student system to meet their long term strategic needs," said Cole Clark, global vice president, Education and Research Industry, Oracle. "HTS Optimized Campus can enable schools of all types and sizes the opportunity to meet their student, faculty and staff needs through a PeopleSoft Campus Solutions implementation."

East West University, a small but rapidly growing school in Chicago, IL, has partnered with HTS to become the first school to take advantage of HTS' Optimized Campus model. As HTS continues to work closely with Oracle to develop new solutions for the needs of today's Higher Education Market, the implementation of Optimized Campus at East West University demonstrates that this model can provide realized benefits to the market.
