Community Care College selects disruptive technology from Three Rivers Systems to manage its 3-campus operation

St. Louis — Feb. 7, 2012 — Community Care College has selected CAMS Enterprise, the disruptive technology choice from Three Rivers Systems Inc., as its new academic enterprise resource planning system for managing its entire student lifecycle. In doing so, the Tulsa, Okla.-based, three-campus technical school in the burgeoning for-profit sector rejected bids from several well-known, more-conventional ERP providers unable match the out-of-the-box configuration, self-service customization, total integration and growth capacity CAMS Enterprise offers.
After careful due diligence, CCC concluded only Three Rivers Systems could handle the college’s wide-ranging and overlapping term lengths, unique financial-aid packages as well as its diverse program tracks. In addition, the school found CAMS easier to use, fully integrated and with more-robust reporting functions, including a highly desired pre-built activity report for admissions.
CCC said other important factors in the win were also CAMS’ low total cost of ownership and strong customer references as well as the deep knowledge of for-profit school operations embedded in Three Rivers Systems’ culture.
“We looked for years for the right ERP solution for our three colleges — a system not only heavily focused on CRM but also designed on a single database server,” Community Care College CEO Teresa Knox said. “By combining its holistic solution with modern technology and superior support, CAMS Enterprise gives us what we need to fulfill the mission of our institution. We are confident CAMS will enhance the quality and measurable effectiveness of nearly every division within our organization.”
Named as one of the best places to work in Oklahoma, Community Care College is celebrating 16 years of providing a positive educational environment and experience with programs in health care, business, education, lifestyle and continuing education from its three campuses. Community Care College offers wide-ranging health care courses in medical, dental and veterinary assisting; athletic training; health-service administration; medical billing and coding; pharmacy technician training; surgical technology training and more.
As one of the largest schools of its kind, Clary Sage College specializes in cosmetology; esthetics; fashion and interior design; massage therapy; and makeup artistry. Oklahoma Technical College offers several automotive programs; barber school and welding.
According to a recent Huffington Post story, enrollment at for-profit colleges has spiked dramatically during the last decade, increasing to 13 percent of all college students nationwide, up from just 5 percent. The Post report quotes a working paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research in which researchers credit for-profit schools with playing “a critical role in expanding the supply of skilled workers in an era of tight state budgets and stagnating appropriations to public sector schools.”

Health care continues to offer excellent opportunities for job seekers and not only positions that require a medical degree. Occupations that call for fewer years of study and offer more moderate salaries — like physical therapist assistant and lab technician — are also in demand. Many of these occupations rank at the top of the U.S. Labor Department’s growth projections for 2008 to 2018, largely because millions of aging baby boomers will continue to place heightened demand on health care providers.
