EDI Transcripts have never been Easier ~ Automatically Send and Receive
Available for PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.0 and 9.2
We recently announced Web Services for Real-time enrollment transfer (send and receive) between schools.
However, another immediately available tool is EDI or related file-exchanges (SPEEDE, TS130 and others).
What is EDI? College “A” sends student transcript and enrollment information to University “B” in the form of structured text, csv or xml files. This is a purely electronic transmission (sent along with or instead of a PDF or hard copy) allowing University “B” to directly import the data, avoiding all manual entry!
We are happy to offer new highly automated Tools so that you can Send and/or Receive this student data more easily than ever
- Real time or Scheduled
- Automatically Send EDI to your high volume partners
- Automatically Import EDI student enrollment and transcripts that you receive from your partners
- Automate Load to PeopleSoft External Education
- Load enrollment data into Course Transfer Credits Real time!
EDI Tools bring you unique new capabilities
Automated File Parsing and Import
According to speedeserver.org, every month tens or hundreds of thousands of student transcripts are sent electronically between schools!
But the EDI format can be very cumbersome for receiving schools to import! The file layouts can be very specific and may have slight variations to try to code around! Besides the standard TS130 file layout there are many state and local variations and newer XML standards from organizations like PESC and Clearinghouse.
With EDI Hub we’ve done the hard work for you!
- Reads the incoming data format
- Maps to your highest volume “feeder” schools from which students are sending transcripts to you
- Streamlines the logic to focus on the most significant data – student enrollment history and grades!
Schedule EDI Import to run on a recurrence
You can import EDI student data from an administrative dashboard (for one student or groups of students) or you can setup EDI Import to run nightly and sweep files from a network drive!
- Automatically identifies student and sending school
- Your choice of where we import the data – to staging, to External Education, or even to Course Transfer Credits
It takes Two to Tango!
We know that EDI Import is no good unless you have partners who will Send you EDI transcripts!
That’s why we offer a very inexpensive PeopleSoft Plug-In for automatically Sending EDI ~~ now the two-way data exchange can happen more easily and inexpensively than ever
