Higher Education

Leverage our expertise in the Higher Education industry. Reach and serve Constituents more effectively.

The Higher Education User Group (HEUG) has highlighted a number of complications with constituent data management:

  • Fragmented constituent data across multiple systems (e.g. HRMS, Campus Solution, and Identity Management)
  • Duplicate, inaccurate constituent data
  • Legacy applications with closed interfaces
  • Inflexible custom-built registry hubs

Those complications result in challenges that include

  • Missed recruitment
  • Reduced enrollment
  • Student retention issues
  • Inefficient fundraising
  • Campus safety risks
  • IT security risks
  • Identity management issues
  • Split Human Capital Management (HCM) and Campus Solution databases

LumenData can help you address your challenges with our Higher Education industry services such as constituent mastering and integrations to other applications, including PeopleSoft, Human Resource Management systems (HRMS), and Identity Management systems.
