CAMS Enterprise is a cloud-based academic enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution designed primarily for higher education institutes. The solution helps users address multiple workflows, including automating admission processes, manage student registrations and generate bills.
Using CAMS Enterprise, students can access their information through a centralized student portal and keep a record of their grades, financial aid, communications and other services. CAMS Enterprise also offers a personalized portal for staff and faculty to manage their key teaching responsibilities.
The cloud interface allows teachers to communicate with their class, share study material and distribute grades from anywhere. The solution also offers a learning management system, which includes inbuilt course material, custom assignment templates and discussion forums. It allows users to operate with multiple currencies, languages and reporting requirements.
Administrators can also perform business analysis and access campus-wide vital information via their administrative dashboard. Support is provided via an online forum, email and phone.

I have been using CAMS for a couple of months. I do not like it and cannot think of one "pro." I used CampusVue at my old school and prefer it over CAMS. CAMS is out-of-date, and we are trying to convince the administration to buy a new SIS.
Pretty much everything I can think of are cons. CAMS will not operate in any browser but an old version of IE. The only reason we have that version downloaded is to use CAMS. One of my biggest issues is that it does not interact with any of the other applications we use. For example, I have to enter final grades manually because it does not interact with our LMS (BrightSpace).

I think this product works well for smaller sized institutions. I really like the price point of this product. They seem to be very attentive to the customer needs.
Like most things, there is always something you want the software to do that it doesn't. The company is good though with working through issues that you have.

CAMS has made some valuable updates to their interface and system that really allow higher education professionals to maximize their impact on potential students. The functions allow admissions counselors to manage their interactions with applicants and prospects consistently while keeping tabs on their progress. I've been very impressed by their ability to listen to customers and implement updated design and functionality to better serve schools.
