Greenwood Village, Colo. - June 21, 2013 - Graduate School USA has chosen Ciber
to implement Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and deliver services that will
support student registration and administration activities. Ciber will be
implementing Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus
Self Service software. The consulting company also will provide two Ciber
business solutions: Ciber Online Student Enrollment and Continuing Education and
Ciber State Reporting.
Created by the Department of Agriculture in 1921 to provide continuing education
to its scientists, Graduate School USA has evolved into a multi-campus
institution that provides continuing education courses covering a broad range of
government specialties. As the school has expanded, it outgrew its student
administrative system, and administrators wanted software that would support
unique needs of their students, who often are continuing-education participants
signing up for short training courses rather than degree-seeking students
enrolling in long-term programs. The new Oracle software and Ciber business
solutions will give students easy access to information, enable self-service
transactions and automate previously manual processes.
"Ciber has gone above and beyond what we expected," said James Huske, senior
vice president for government training and professional development, Graduate
School USA. "Not only has the company put together a solution that truly meets
our needs, but Ciber employees also have acted as trusted advisors to our IT
Among the solutions Ciber will be providing are two that it has developed
specifically for higher education institutions. Ciber Online Student Enrollment
and Continuing Education lets both traditional and continuing education students
enroll online in three steps, while Ciber State Reporting helps schools ensure
that they are reporting information in the correct format to the state. Ciber
will provide services to update both solutions as requirements change.
"We're proud of the wide array of clients we work with in our higher education
practice, including two-year schools, four-year schools and even some schools
that might be labeled non-traditional," said Mike Dillon, Oracle practice leader
for Ciber. "This depth of experience strengthens our ability to support all
these schools, including Graduate School USA."
For more than a decade, Ciber has been a leader in providing business
application solutions to education clients. More than 200 educational
institutions worldwide have worked with Ciber to prepare for, upgrade, implement
and integrate their enterprise systems. Approximately 25 percent of Oracle
PeopleSoft higher education clients have worked with Ciber to implement and/or
upgrade their software.
A Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) and specialized in
Oracle's PeopleSoft solutions, Ciber has helped more than 1,000 clients in more
than 2,000 separate engagements leverage their Oracle applications to improve
business processes, reduce costs and provide support for management decision-
