Malaysian private tertiary institution KDU University College [KDU] has rolled out Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions to streamline processes across multiple departments for better student lifecycle management, it said.

KDU vice chancellor Professor Khong Yoon Loong said that enhancing the campus's administrative and academic systems was critical to ensure a sustainable future with student population growth.

"With Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, KDU is now in a position to make information more readily available to all of our students, faculties, and staff under a fully integrated environment,@ said Professor Khong. "We have already seen a huge improvement in services for our students after the implementation."

He said the Oracle solution replaced a legacy information management system, which "was unable to provide a holistic view of student activities as a result of the fragmented information derived from multiple campus departments."

Prof Khong said the older system also was slow in processing student admissions and further delayed campus users' access to updated enrolment information.

 Immediate benefits

He said that following the deployment of Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, the university college has already improved the entire university's student lifecycle management with more convenient learning modes and streamlined student information systems from enrolment to alumni management.

Other benefits from the Oracle solutions include a user interface that promotes student engagement and collaboration in KDU, said Prof Khong.

With communications and feedback mechanisms, the university can gain the insights needed to help the students achieve their goals in studies, he said.

Oracle Malaysia's country manager of applications, Nik Feizal Haidi Hanafi, said,  "Oracle has a long history of supporting education institutions around the world. Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions enables universities to eliminate the barriers to efficient growth and superior student services."

"It has provided KDU a stable foundation with greater flexibility and agility to support the institutional program requirements, further improving the overall student experience and journey to student success," says Nik Feizal           

He said Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions now allowed KDU to facilitate more efficient information sharing between campus departments as of now the student information are seamlessly standardized to students, the records and admissions departments and other administrative offices.

KDU University College, a member of the KDU Education Group, is a pioneer and leading provider in the field of private tertiary education since 1983.
