University of Wisconsin–Stout Adopts DataScholar™ for Campus-Wide Financial Reporting
Stout Becomes Third Campus in UW System to Choose eThority® Data Management Solution
Charleston, SC – August 3, 2010 - eThority, a leading provider of “user-obvious” enterprise performance and productivity solutions, today announced that University of Wisconsin-Stout has chosen DataScholar for institution-wide financial reporting and analysis. UW-Stout is the third campus in the University of Wisconsin system to select DataScholar to fulfill its performance management needs. DataScholar is a higher education performance engine that optimizes institutional performance with complete data access and comprehensive, interactive analytics. Powered by eThority, who has provided intuitive solutions to colleges and universities since 1992, DataScholar helps Higher Education leverage a user-obvious interface to empower users of all skills levels.
The University’s deciding factors in adopting DataScholar include the solution’s “user-obvious” interface, which enables users of all technical skill levels to interact with their data; the ability to create and automate reports; and the diversity of systems that DataScholar’s proprietary ETL can bring into the application for integrated reporting across UW-Stout. Another key reason that UW-Stout chose DataScholar was its uniquely customizable dashboarding functionality will give users at-a-glance insight into their key metrics.
With DataScholar, UW-Stout will integrate a variety of data sources, including PeopleSoft Financials, Accounts Recievable/Accounts Payable data, and Assets Management data for analysis in the Central Finance Office. Reports will be automated and distributed to business managers across schools and departments. Business managers will then be able to “slice and dice” these reports to uncover additional information and insight.
