Newark, NJ, April 8, 2019 – Edge, New Jersey’s nonprofit research and education network and technology solutions center, announced the award of a contract to Campus Management, a leading provider of cloud-based SIS, CRM and ERP solutions and services that transform higher education. This award is the culmination of a comprehensive RFP process conducted by Edge in partnership with a team of experts from among its member colleges, with the intent of providing business solutions capabilities to constituents via it’s New Jersey Department of Community Affairs-approved cooperative pricing system, EdgeMarket.

In addition to highly competitive pricing, Campus Management was selected based on its modern technology and its partner ecosystem. Campus Management’s systems of record and system of engagement with students will all be available on the EdgeMarket. CampusNexus Student, CampusNexus Occupation Insight, CampusNexus Finance, HR & Payroll, and CampusNexus Engage are built on Microsoft technology and leverage the innovative capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and the trusted Microsoft Azure cloud platform. One of the newest innovation solutions available through Campus Management is CampusNexus Occupation Insight, a cloud-based workforce analytics solution that brings together career, job and skills data with an institution’s programs and courses, allowing students and advisors to align program and course skill outcomes with employer demand in the workforce.  

ERP/SIS systems serve as the hub for responding to the full spectrum of students’ needs throughout their educational journey. The Campus Management solution effectively addressed Edge members’ needs for institutional management of key data related to prospecting, admissions, financial aid, registration and class scheduling, retention, and student success overall. By coordinating the RFP process in partnership with a select group of constituent schools via EdgeMarket, Edge’s cooperative pricing system, the resulting award will allow these schools and others across the country to be able to quickly access and implement Campus Management’s advanced solutions in support of their digital transformation efforts.

“Cutting edge ERP and SIS systems are essential tools to enable operational excellence in higher education today,” said Dr. Samuel Conn, President & CEO of Edge. “Providing an avenue for our members to quickly and easily engage with an industry leader in this space was a priority for Edge. Campus Management will be a great partner to our members as a result of their state-of-the-art capabilities and service-minded approach to higher education.”

“After serving higher education for more than 30 years, we continue to innovate and develop modern solutions that fit the needs of today’s institutions – flexible, secure, and enterprise-enabled,” said Jim Milton, CEO of Campus Management. “Our mission is to empower faculty and staff to transform academic delivery, student success and operational efficiency. As a new vendor to EdgeMarket, Campus Management looks forward to meeting more of the Edge members and discussing their unique challenges.”

Edge members will also have the unique advantage of access to the organization’s EdgePro solution set, which includes services designed to ensure the success of digital transformation projects involving ERP/SIS implementations.
