Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture Selects Student Information System OneWorldSIS, Architected on Microsoft Dynamics 365
Charlottesville, VA. (PRWEB) July 18, 2019 The Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) has selected the OneWorldSIS Student Information System and OneWorldSIS Portal to manage its complete student lifecycle needs, including recruitment, enrollment, degree management, class management and alumni services.
RICA, a new higher-education institution dedicated to teaching the next generation of Rwandan and East African agricultural leaders and funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, has committed to developing a digitally transformative technology environment that allows the school to easily expand across the region. OneWorldSIS, architected on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform, enables RICA to benefit from the industry-leading cloud platform Microsoft is driving within the education market across all of Africa.
Using the OneWorldSIS Student Information System, school administrators will be able to more efficiently enter and track data, manage processes, and share information using a complete cloud-based solution. The system will also provide actionable analytics from recruitment analysis to retention and prevention monitoring, enabling the school to more effectively manage the entire student experience.
“Based on the transforming technology platform, we continue to see strong demand for OneWorldSIS, both in the U.S. and globally, as educational organizations look to adopt more web-based, end-to-end solutions to manage the complete lifecycle of their students,” said Henry B. Hickman, President and CEO of OneWorldSIS.
Simon Outtara, Education Lead for Microsoft Middle East and Africa Multi-Country Cluster, added, “There’s mounting pressure on educational institutions today to redefine learning for the digital age. We’re committed to be a partner in this journey, providing institutions with tools like Dynamics 365 to help get them up and running faster through simplified acquisition and deployment. This eliminates wasted time and delivers new capabilities to educators to help them learn and work in new ways and most importantly accelerate digital transformation on the education sector.”
