Jenzabar ONE is strongly suited for an all-in one solution for higher ed. The modern web-based platform make it efficient for end users. An institution that wants a full communication platform to connect with students, Jenzabar is the right product for your school. As with any product, development with Jenzabar One continues which is a good thing but also may cause some schools to want more features more quickly.

Most of the reason I'd recommend the solution is for their email capabilities. The email builder is par excellence, almost if not more competitive than capabilities provided by some actual Email Marketing solutions. Additionally, it runs on Salesforce, and thus allows for automated emails and campaigns with information integrated into them from SF records. It is truly remarkable and a very well-developed capability.

  • When sending large volumes of email the campaigns can be slow to send
  • The events functions are not as robust as some of the competition
  • Their telemarketing component has not been updated in a while and leaves a bit for current call centers.

Given that it's an older solution and addresses a lot more use cases, there's a lot more bulk and technical debt in the solution. This may make it overwhelming for first-time users and administrators. The email builder though is truly par excellence.
