Schools Drive Continuing Education Programs with Innovative Software Platform

University of Missouri-St. Louis One of Many Schools Choosing Jenzabar’s Continuing Education Solution

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, strategies and services for higher education, announced today that twelve institutions have selected Jenzabar Higher ReachTM, the company’s continuing education and workforce development software, to date in 2012. Twelve colleges and universities have also successfully gone live on the software this year.

Jenzabar Higher Reach helps institutions of all types undertake, manage, and deliver continuing education, certificate, and workforce development programs. One of the institutions that selected the software, the University of Missouri-St. Louis Continuing Education Division, previously had an outdated registration system that did not fit the needs of its noncredit programs, off-campus credit courses, and contract programs.

“Continuing education is really important to the University of Missouri-St. Louis. We carry the mission of the university out to the community through off campus credit courses, noncredit programs, and degree completion programs located at six area community colleges,” said Gina Ganahl, Associate Dean for the Division of Continuing Education at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. “Our team selected Jenzabar Higher Reach out of seventeen systems. Jenzabar is customer service-oriented, so we were confident that we would be able to fulfill our own customer service goals and deliver a user-friendly experience to our students.”

Among the schools that have chosen Jenzabar Higher Reach include California Baptist University, Mt. Hood Community College, Northampton Community College, Polk State College, Quinsigamond Community College, Southern State University, University of California Online Academy, and University of California Online Education.

“Large research institutions, small privates, community colleges, online schools – higher education institutions of all types and sizes are expanding their continuing education, workforce development, certificate, and non-credit programs,” said Chris Hartigan, Jenzabar Vice President and General Manager, Continuing Education Business Unit. “They all need a system that works specifically for their respective and unique programs. Our continuing education software is designed to be forward-looking and evolve with the institution for a long-term partnership.”

Jenzabar Higher Reach is a flexible, full-featured, scalable software solution uniquely aligned with the complex needs of any institution that offers continuing education, certificate, or workforce development programs. Higher Reach supports the entire continuing education ecosystem, from prospective students and candidates all the way through graduation.
