At APSCU 2012, we were excited to have the opportunity to speak with Jami Morshed, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Three Rivers Systems, touted as “The only truly disruptive academic ERP serving higher education.” And how exactly is Three Rivers Systems disruptive? According to Jami, by coming into an established market but offering innovative technology that can change the order of business, Three Rivers Systems is able to essentially do what Netflix did to Blockbuster. We asked Jami what it takes to adopt these systems for schools, the implementation process the process, and which establishments can benefit most from Three Rivers Systems services. As Jami says, institutions are often bogged down by tasks that don’t advance their original purpose—to educate the public—and Three Rivers Systems seeks to help institutions focus on that important goal. We enjoyed our chat with Jami, and appreciated him taking the time to chat with us. Bogged down with tasks other than their original purpose—to educate students.
