Easy to Learn and Use

“We want a system that’s easy to use!” We hear that a lot from higher education administrators up and down the chain of command.

We understand. Nothing is more painful than a bulky, antiquated ERP not designed with the end user in mind.

CAMS® Enterprise, however, couldn’t be easier to learn and use. If you can handle an Internet browser, you can use CAMS. Friendly screens allow you to navigate and view data quickly with a single click. Required fields are clearly identified. User defined look-up tables let you use your standard terminology, and validation make data entry easy and accurate.

Reporting is easy, too. Every CAMS installation includes a complete set of pre-built reports, addressing all of the key institutional needs and available with just a click. Ad hoc queries are easy to construct with user defined criteria and can be saved to run on an as-needed basis.

Any data fields in the report can be quickly exported to many standard formats including PDF, RTF, MS Excel, and MS Word for further analysis by other off-the-shelf products.

CAMS Enterprise excels in reporting because it is built on a secure, single shared Microsoft SQL database that serves all major departments and portals. So, all system-wide data is always available in real-time for any report — all without having to go through your IT department’s help desk.

Build Your Own Report — BYOR — our robust reporting tool, features a simple point-and-click reporting interface that makes generating reports quick and easy. You can run unlimited reports with a few simple clicks of the mouse. CAMS also handles functions like IPEDS and NSLC data just as easily.

CAMS is also easy to configure. Quickly set up your institution’s policies and let CAMS do the rest of the work for you. Calculations and processes are performed based on your practices and procedures.

Our parameterized and rule based architecture, makes implementing CAMS Enterprise quick and easy. Our client validated procedures install the entire system intelligently and efficiently, so CAMS Enterprise can be up and running faster than any other academic ERP. And CAMS Enterprise conforms to your standard practices and procedures, rather than forcing you to change the way you do business.

Easy to learn. Easy to use. Easy to implement. Easy to configure. Easy reporting. Easy upgrades. That’s easy to remember, isn’t it?
