A frontrunner in innovation and student engagement, Spring Arbor University (SAU) is paving the way forward to be the first ever full-suite Oracle Cloud implementation. Highstreet has been selected as the chosen partner for SAU’s upcoming implementation which includes Oracle’s entire package of cloud applications including: ERP Cloud, Enterprise Performance Management, Human Capital Management, Oracle Student Cloud: Student Financial Planning, and Student Management as well as Customer Experience: Oracle Cloud CX and Oracle Eloqua.
Spring Arbor University is a Free Methodist affiliated university located in Spring Arbor, Michigan. Originally founded as a junior college, SAU attained university status in 1994. Which now offers more than 97 majors which include multiple associates, bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Serving more than 4,200 students, SAU prides itself as an institution serving a community of learners distinguished by their Christian faith, education and dedication to all aspects of student engagement.
SAU has engaged Highstreet as their Oracle Cloud implementation partner to provide a digital transformation of their enterprise solutions. With Highstreet’s leadership and expertise, SAU kicks off the project in Oracle’s early adopter program. SAU will leverage the Oracle Cloud functionality to provide their students with a centralized system that enhances the student experience.
Amy Prevosto, Highstreet project manager says, “It’s exciting to be part of Spring Arbor’s 5-year plan and have an opportunity to impact efficiencies with the use of technology and the digital transformation of not only the student’s experience but the experience employees and faculty members will have with new systems. Spring Arbor University has done a lot of pre-work to get ready for these transformational systems, making this an exciting opportunity. Highstreet, Oracle, and Spring Arbor University partnership is just beginning but it already has a bright future where all parties will work hard together to make this a success.”
Randall Melton, CIO of SAU had this to say about the upcoming project:
“SAU selected Highstreet as our implementation partner because of the integrity of their leadership, their depth of experience with Oracle, and their willingness to share project risk as we break new ground in the Oracle early adopter program. Highstreet has provided us with an effective project manager and a highly skilled functional lead with Oracle’s Student Financial Planning solution. We appreciate Highstreet’s willingness to walk through an in-depth procurement process as we validated Oracle’s solutions and Highstreet’s implementation plans.”
