In addition to providing day to day support for the University's core ERP systems, Administrative Systems works with schools and business units to identify and implement IT solutions that address specific administrative needs.

Clients typically approach AS seeking to automate existing manual processes or to update older, outdated systems. With current knowledge of the latest technologies, AS can evaluate the client's needs and recommend best options. In cases where no viable commercial or community/open source solution exists, AS can often develop in-house solutions.
