PowerCAMPUS Digital Campus to be Deployed for Enhanced Constituent Services

Dubai, UAE, 21 February 2011: The Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) has selected SunGard Higher Education, a global provider of education software and technology services, to help realise its vision for a new generation of job-ready graduates with world class vocational skills and theoretical knowledge. With the help of Information Management Solutions ( IMS ), an experienced implementer of software solutions, the PowerCAMPUS Digital Campus from SunGard Higher Education will be deployed to support ACK in the provision of internationally recognized and accredited vocational education in Kuwait.

The PowerCAMPUS Digital Campus is a complete enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for Higher Education built on Microsoft technologies and designed to help small and mid-sized schools meet growing demands for improved accountability, performance and productivity. When implemented, the solution will provide a structured and scalable means for ACK to support the administration process - from recruitment, admissions, registration, managing student records and processing billing, to the ability to extract and manage critical report capabilities. PowerCAMPUS will also help increase self-service functionality and provide communication and collaboration tools for faculty, staff, students and alumni, thereby helping improve constituent service while reducing the demands on staff time.

"Technology is crucial to our vision of creating one of the world's best vocational institutions in Kuwait, and we have spared no effort to secure the best technology products and vendors to support our strategy," said Abdullah Abdul Mohsen Al Sharhan, chairman, ACK. "SunGard Higher Education was selected because of its global leadership in delivering innovative education solutions and its strong local installed customer base in Kuwait and across the Gulf."

ACK is the first private vocational education college in Kuwait. The institution offers the Australian vocational curriculum which is one of the best in the world. With highly qualified Australian and international staff, students are imparted with the quality of knowledge, skills and attitudes that build lifelong achievements.

Mathew Boice, vice president EMEA and India, SunGard Higher Education, said: "As a vocational institute, ACK has a key mandate to provide Kuwaiti graduates with the vocational skills and theoretical knowledge required to help them become valuable contributors from the day they graduate. SunGard Higher Education is pleased to support ACK's mission and remains committed to providing a platform for long-term and sustainable change within the vocational education sector in Kuwait and across the region."
