A university aims to ‘boost students’ experience’ through digital transformation

The University of Lincoln aims to enhance student learning experiences via TechnologyOne’s Student Management System

The University of Lincoln will start its new academic year powered by TechnologyOne’s state-of-the-art Student Management System, as part of its strategic plan to enhance student learning experiences.

The University of Lincoln has already been using TechnologyOne’s finance system for over five years to save time and money, by automating and digitising more of its financial invoicing, procurement and reporting systems. It’s also been using TechnologyOne’s Student Admissions system since 2019.

With the launch of the new Student Management System, the university is now a SaaS ERP OneEducation customer, and is one of over 100 higher education customers using TechnologyOne products in the UK.

Professor Neal Juster, vice chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “As we welcome new and returning students for the next academic year, TechnologyOne’s OneEducation Student Management System will be a keydriver, helping us deliver an enhanced experience for students and staff alike.

“Our strategic plan and long-term ambition is to become a university that contributes significantly to the nation’s success through regional regeneration and international connectivity. We believe having the best business and student management system can provide us the real-time insight we need to achieve this.”

Leo Hanna, UK executive vice president at TechnologyOne added: “We know that managing risk is a huge priority for university leaders right now.

“As well as helping to drive a positive student experience, TechnologyOne’s student management system will help manage cyber security risks.

“Our secure ‘government security strength’ SaaS platform reduces the risk of cyberattacks by minimising potential threat openings and provides the foundation for continuous and automatic upgrades as new dangers arise.”

“At a time when an increasing number of universities are falling prey to ransomware attacks, TechnologyOne has upgraded all its SaaS customers to a new security standard IRAP (PROTECTED) and the University of Lincoln is already benefiting from it.”

The successful go-live has been well received by higher education industry groups, who have noted that having a credible new option for universities as they choose a student management system is good news for the UK higher education sector.
