Jenzabar Partners with Experian QAS to Offer Colleges and Universities Address Management Solution

Jenzabar EX integrated software helps validate, clean, and standardize address data

Boston, MA (Vocus) August 26, 2009 –-

Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, services and strategies for higher education, announced today its partnership with Experian® QAS®, a leading provider of address verification software and services (http://www. qas. com/), to improve the value of Jenzabar EX data used for recruitment, retention, development, and marketing communication activities.

Jenzabar EX (http://www. jenzabar. com/products. aspx? id=118), an enterprise resource planning system offered on the Microsoft® SQL Server® platform, allows administrative and academic staff to access, update, store, and report on crucial data through a common database. The Experian QAS integration with Jenzabar EX (http://www. qas. com/partners/jenzabar. htm) utilizes QAS Pro, a front-end address verification product, and QAS Batch, a back-end address verification tool. These solutions validate, clean, standardize and enrich address data, enabling colleges and universities to reduce the volume of return mail seen from prospective students and alumni.

“Experian QAS is strengthening its market presence in higher education by offering integrated address verification to the Jenzabar community,” said Joel Curry, COO Experian QAS. “This product promotes a more efficient way of taking in addresses, allowing colleges and universities to save valuable staff and monetary resources.”

QAS Pro for Jenzabar EX decreases data-entry time while giving users easy-to-follow prompts and pick lists to take in a complete address. QAS Batch for Jenzabar EX gives users a CASS Certified™ software to standardize addresses and can qualify colleges and universities for U. S. Postal Service discounts.

“Through the Experian QAS partnership, we are able to help our clients increase their data accuracy,” said Sashi Parthasarathi, Jenzabar Vice President of Client Relations. “Jenzabar is committed to providing existing and potential clients with time saving and effective solutions and this mechanism for address verification will certainly help them heighten operational efficiency.”

Serving nearly 300 institutions of higher education, Jenzabar EX delivers key data to offices across the campus, streamlining workflow and enabling institutions to offer prompt, personalized service to prospects, students, alumni, and faculty.

Jenzabar is also developing integration between Experian QAS and Jenzabar CX, another Jenzabar flagship enterprise resource planning system offered on the UNIX® platform. Jenzabar plans on releasing this integrated solution to its Jenzabar CX clients within the next three to six months.
