CampusNet® Introduction

IT projects or organisational projects? Large or small subject range? College or University? The starter products from CampusNet® have to be as individual as our clients and their requirements. To be able to meet the needs of individual universities, our approach is to divide our product offering into eight different structural phases.Each of these structural phases is geared towards the technical and objective circumstances of the client, their available time and resources. Tailored to their logistical and technical connections we aim to achieve an individually fitted and interlocking project schedule to guarantee the best control and monitoring of an initial project.Our experience has proven that planning and preparing the next phase in detail needs to happen as the previous phase comes to its conclusion, ideally starting the following phase with a slight overlap.

Organisation (i.e. processes, tasks, roles)

System deployment  (i.e. Software configuration, Data transfer from external systems)

System integration (i.e. Interfaces with other systems)

The main objectives, strategies and conditions are defined in the initialization phase.With a subsequent QuickScan we make an initial rapid screening of the process characteristics and establish the project structure at an operational level. During the time-consuming objective concept phase, we create together the Target Concepts, a Role Concept and - if required - an Organisational and Personnel Concept (see below).
Both phases can be completed during implementation, CampusNet® successfully measures and integrates findings gained throughout the process and integrates these into the existing environment. The testing and quality assurance stage will live up to its name through extensive functional and procedural tests and is also marked by the preparation and test imports of old data followed by the final data acquisition in the new productive system CampusNet®.
Comprehensive training runs in parallel to previous phases, before individual CampusNet® subjects come online during the academic cycle.
The last step, upon reaching the actual operational phase, is the formal acceptance of the project implementation. This defines if the complete system is ready for operation.

Organisational development

Next to functional and appropriate software, the production of a system that is organisationally ready to operate is of most importance, as this determines the powerful operation of a Campus Management System.

We have made it our business, in collaboration with the client, to tackle issues concerning the organisational and, if need be, HR issues. In the final concept stage user roles are defined and matched to the organisation structure. To take these roles on we supply sufficient staff (in quantitative and qualitative terms) to support the client throughout the concept implementation process.

The methods we use correspond to official standards and are ideally suited for universities. These have been repeatedly positively rated by third parties and have led to a professional organisation which exceeded the customer's expectations.
