Read this case study by the leading higher education analyst firm, The Tambellini Group, based on the firm’s interview with Confederation College. This content is typically reserved for Tambellini clients, but Syntellis has obtained exclusive rights to share it with you.

The Institution: Confederation College is a provincially funded applied arts and technology college in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, that serves approximately, 7,153 full- and part-time students. 

The Challenge: Confederation College's budgeting, tuition planning, and program costing processes were time consuming and inaccurate. The College sought to optimize its business processes and technology with a solution that enabled data-driven financial planning and forecasting and gave budget managers self-service functionality to take responsibility for planning their operating budgets. 

The Solution: Through its RFP process, Confederation College selected the Syntellis Axiom Higher Education Suite because it is a fully integrated system that supports budget planning through tuition planning and program costing with robust data analysis, visualization, and reporting capabilities. It also offers a user-friendly budget planning solution with workflow functionality to enable collaboration between budget managers and accounting staff when creating and approving budgets.
