Ellucian, Perceptive Software to Extend Partnership

FAIRFAX, Va. — Ellucian, the leading global software and services provider for higher education, is announcing today the expansion of its long-standing colleague partnership with Perceptive Software. Ellucian is now offering Perceptive Software’s enterprise content management solutions directly to Banner by Ellucian customers.

“This partnership between Ellucian and Perceptive Software builds upon years of successfully working together to deliver great value to our higher education customers and their students”

Under the agreement, Ellucian will expand its current document management portfolio for Banner ERP to include Perceptive Content and Perceptive Capture software, providing customers with a collaborative capture and document management solution. Ellucian will brand the Perceptive products as Ellucian Content Management and will sell and support these solutions directly to the Banner client base. The evolved offering enables more Banner customers to take advantage of improved functionality and better integration, transforming all paper and unstructured content into an easier, less costly digitized version.

“We are excited to grow our strategic partnership with Perceptive Software and bring their deep higher education expertise, product success, and legacy of innovation to our Banner ERP customer base,” said Mark Jones, senior vice president and chief product officer at Ellucian. “In staying true to our XE strategy, we are focused on bringing more innovative and integrated solutions to our institutions faster and more cost-effectively while also improving access for all users.”

Ellucian and Perceptive Software have collaborated on Colleague ERP projects since 2003, delivering high quality software solutions and meeting the high demands faced by today’s institutions. Ellucian Content Management accelerates operational efficiencies, improving response time of today’s most critical processes by providing easy, electronic access to documentation including student admission applications, invoices, financial aid applications and student bills.

Tightening budgets coupled with higher expectations from constituents are challenges institutions are combating by using Ellucian Content Management. By allowing users to easily upload and store documents in a digital space, CIO’s and department heads can access specific documents seamlessly across multiple end points, making it easier to collaborate. With the shift from paper to digital, institutions are drastically reducing their carbon footprints and becoming more sustainable.

“This partnership between Ellucian and Perceptive Software builds upon years of successfully working together to deliver great value to our higher education customers and their students,” said Darren Knipp, chief operating officer at Perceptive Software. “Together, we will create new, innovative, and seamless solutions focused on the unique challenges and requirements of the Banner higher education community enabling a whole new level of service to benefit our customers.”
