Overall Satisfaction with Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution (JICS)

JICS is used across our entire organization as our enterprise data management system. Every office uses Jenzabar in some way, shape, or form. It holds all relevant data for the College.
  • JICS is successful in presenting a user-friendly interface that allows less experienced users to manage data in a meaningful way.
  • JICS assures all departments are using the same data.
  • JICS is willing to listen to customers regarding feature requests and needed updates.
  • Jenzabar is unwilling to work with other companies to integrate information across multiple platforms.
  • The quality of JICS is contingent upon appropriate use and entry by those on campus. While not a limitation to JICS itself, there seems to be more problems with JICS in this regard than I have noticed on other campuses with other platforms.
  • JICS is typically behind on the times. Features it adds today were commonplace for others much earlier.
  • Jenzabar has allowed us to house all data in one system, which was badly needed.
  • Jenzabar allows us to speak one language across campus, although many offices still work outside of Jenzabar due to limitations within JICS.
  • Jenzabar has not been effective in being a leader in new features or developments. I always feel like we are a step behind.
We selected JICS many years ago as it was a cost-effective option that was streamlined and straight-forward. Today, no one is ever thrilled with their SIS, and I can anticipate major difficulties if we attempted to move from JICS. However, from a features and revolutionary standpoint, I do feel we will always be a step behind if we continue with Jenzabar.
JICS is well suited for schools that have long-used Jenzabar products or are looking for a stripped down, direct data management system. If someone is seeking innovation or the latest in features and technology, I do not believe they would be as pleased with JICS. It's a bare bones system alternative.
