Academe Solutions’ Residence Life Management System Achieves Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions


April 1, 2014: Academe Solutions, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of its Residence Life Management System 9.0 with Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.0. Academe Solution’s Residence Life Management System resides as an application within Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, and is integrated with PeopleSoft Campus Community, Admission & Recruiting, Student Records, Student Financials and Self-Service modules.

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. With Academe Solution’s Residence Life Management System additions and changes to Room Assignments and Meal Plans are reflected real time in PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. Additionally, institutions can now effectively manage Residence Life housing and meal plans in a single, integrated system with other vital student administration areas of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions.

“This is a special achievement for Academe Solutions-and for me personally,” said Darren-Michael Yocum, President, Academe Solutions. “In 1998, Oracle’s PeopleSoft gave me a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with an awesome new product called PeopleSoft Student Administration. Sixteen years later to see our Residence Life Management System achieve Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions means so much to me; it is difficult to describe. Special thanks to Oracle for the opportunity, support and guidance. And to our remarkable customers who have played an integral role in developing and shaping the direction of our Residence Life Management System.”

"Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between Academe Solutions’ Residence Life Management System 9.0 and Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.0 is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said Kevin O’Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle. “For solutions deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”
