On October 1, 2013, members of the Administrative Information Systems Team, Penny Harter, Mike Hinson and Kara Bosch received on behalf of Central Piedmont Community College the Informer Business Intelligence Award presented by Entrinsik.

And the new document imaging system is……Perceptive Software’s ImageNow

Following product demonstrations from a number of vendors with participation and feedback from many areas of the college, Perceptive Software was chosen as the new enterprise content management solution for Central Piedmont Community College.   Perceptive Software, an Ellucian (Datatel) partner, provides products which integrate fully and easily with all Colleague releases to improve service to students and staff, streamline processes and enhance collaboration. 

The procurement process was completed at the end of June.  As part of the purchase, we have retained the professional services of Perceptive Software to assist with the conversion of two key departments here at CPCC.  This project is already underway.  We look forward to providing solutions for many areas of the college that will leverage additional functionality offered by this product including integration with Colleague, ‘printing’ documents from typical desktop business applications directly into the imaging system, additional workflow capabilities and much more.

Always Striving to Provide the Best Services to CPCC’s Students….

Disability Services Custom Screen

Disability Services Custom Screen Developed here at CPCC

Disabilities Counseling Services now has the ability to track disabilities, accommodations, and assigned counselors in Ellucian’s Colleague for students who use their services.  Prior to this new capability, data was maintained in a variety of places not associated with Colleague.  This new enhancement, developed by the CIS team of Adminsitrative Information Services, is a giant step forward for data collection and reporting for this department. The custom screen will help Central Piedmont Community College stay in compliance with Section 504 and The Americans with Disabilities Act to provide classroom accommodations and accessibility to students with disabilities.

New Company Name Announced for Datatel and SunGard Higher Education Combination-News from DUG 2012

AIS staff along with Torey Mills, from the Payroll Department and David Kim, CIO, represented CPCC during the 2012 Annual Datatel Users’ Group Conference in National Harbor, Maryland April 1-4, 2012. CPCC employees presented six sessions, participated in three roundtables and networked at countless meetings and events. As it turns out, this was the last year for the DUG conference. Now the new company, Ellucian, will have a combined user conference with expected attendance of over 6,000 people next spring! We will probably all have to use GPS so we don’t get lost!!! We all made new peer contacts and  returned with information on best practices.


“Ellucian evokes the clarity and light that learning brings to life, aspects that we aspire to share in our relationships with institutions of higher, further and vocational education around the world,” said Michelle Reed, Chief Marketing Officer, Ellucian. “We are a passionate team, motivated by the possibilities of technology and education. The Ellucian brand amplifies who we are and what we want to be for our clients.”
