JKUAT acquired a Sage ACCPAC Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software to integrate all its operational systems. The system links all the University’s Campuses and centres to the main financial module at the Main Campus in Juja. The system was successfully used for registration of new students during the 2011/2012 academic year.
The ERP system has capability of integrating all business functions and processes in an organization to achieve numerous benefits. It offers a single point of data entry that helps in reducing data redundancy while saving time in entering data, thereby reducing labor and overhead costs. The system also centralizes information, decision-making, and control hence leading to increases in efficiencies of operations and productivity, as well as coordination function. The sharing of a centralized database provides the university management with accurate and up-to-date information to make well-informed decisions.
This is so far the largest ICT project the University has implemented so far focusing on key areas of its operation.
