Shawnee State University is one of Ohio’s youngest universities. Its sprawling 62-acre campus hosts over 3000 full time and part time students, providing a range of high-quality programs at affordable rates​

Shawnee had an extensively manual HR and information system, multiple access and edit constraints, complex third-party vendor integration and delays and errors with basic output.​​

Switching to Oracle Cloud allowed Shawnee to empower managers and employees via self-service, reduce inefficiencies using automation and facilitate online tracking and timely delivery to make full use of its human capital.​

Key Results

Higher Education Cloud Services Subscription​​

Drivestream is leading the market with an industry first All-inclusive Cloud Services Subscription. We understand the financial pressures faced by Higher Ed institutions. We believe you should be able to acquire your services the same manner you purchase your cloud applications – with a subscription.​

With typical service provider agreements, you can expect to spend 75% of the Total Cost of Ownership within the first 9 months of the subscription. We believe the service costs should align with the length of the application subscription and at the same time, the service provider stays engaged for the life of the subscription.

Introducing Drivestream’s All-Inclusive Cloud Services Subscription​

  • No Upfront Implementation Costs: As an invested partner, we implement for free, in return for a 5-year application management services contract.
  • Ongoing Support: The support you need for better user adoption and faster return on investment. We enhance your systems for the duration of the subscription.
  • Optimized Cash Flow: A fixed monthly subscription for all Oracle Application services. No upfront cash requirements.
  • Reduced Operational Risk: You work with one service provider for the entire life of the subscription.
