Jenzabar’s Student Information System Is 2021’s #1 Selected Solution Overall in Higher Education

2021 Marks Second Year in a Row That Jenzabar Leads SIS Selections, Indicating Institutions Trust Jenzabar One and Jenzabar SONIS to Navigate the Enrollment Crisis and the Rapidly Changing Higher Education Landscape

Boston, MA – June 23, 2022 Jenzabar, Inc., a leading technology innovator in higher education serving the new student, announced today that its Jenzabar Student and Jenzabar SONIS student information systems (SIS) combined to be among the top-selected solutions by higher education institutions across the U.S. in 2021, according to a report released by Tambellini Group. Jenzabar solutions were also selected more than any other vendor by private, not-for-profit institutions. This marks the second consecutive year that Jenzabar’s SIS solutions were among the most-selected solutions in the private, not-for-profit sector of higher education.

In response to the growing enrollment crisis and challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic introduced, many institutions in 2021 chose modern student information systems to help attract, engage, and retain students. According to The Tambellini Group, “The number of student system selections nearly doubled in 2021 compared to 2020.”

“Institutions are looking for options from solution providers for systems with modern capabilities,” said Vicki Tambellini, President and CEO of Tambellini Group. “We predict investments in modern systems to continue to accelerate as institutions look for technology that can support their needs.”

As the competition among colleges and universities increases, the ability to provide a personalized and seamless student experience becomes incredibly important. Jenzabar’s modern student information systems are designed to maximize student engagement and optimize campus operations so that faculty and staff can devote more time to their students. Jenzabar’s SIS is also directly integrated into the rest of the Jenzabar suite of solutions, which ensures that institutions can find, recruit, enroll, and retain students, while supporting them throughout their entire learning journey.

Student information systems play a vital role in supporting students throughout their learning journeys, and modernized systems introduce opportunities for institutions to improve agility, operational efficiency, and decision-making capabilities. For the past 10 years, institutions have selected Jenzabar more than any other vendor to help address current and future challenges and ensure student success.*

Jenzabar’s SIS being tied for the most student system selections in 2021 underscores that institutions recognize and validate the company’s technology roadmap and vision for the future. In the past two years, Jenzabar has launched Jenzabar Communications and Jenzabar Chatbot, as well as made significant enhancements to Jenzabar Financial Aid, providing institutions with tools critical to ensuring student success in an increasingly digital age. Recently, Jenzabar unveiled the Campus Movement, the company’s commitment to building a world in which anyone, anywhere can find, learn, and live their true calling. Part of that vision includes Jenzabar’s acquisition of Spark451, a full-service marketing and technology firm providing enrollment strategies for higher education. It also includes the release of the Campus Marketplace powered by Jenzabar, a tool which enables universities to put courses on an online branded storefront so that any user—whether enrolled or unenrolled—can easily register and pay for classes. These technologies and services will help institutions expand their reach, enroll new students, and take the first steps in a long-term vision to help create more inclusive education opportunities and sustained institutional viability.

“While 2020 was about responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, institutions in 2021 were looking for solutions and partnerships to help them address the challenges that might arise in the future,” said Ling Chai Maginn, Founder, President, and CEO of Jenzabar. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to ensuring that our solutions and services anticipate and respond to the needs of higher education. We’re incredibly proud that institutions continue to trust our expertise and innovation year after year.”
