The acquisition continues to build out Campus Management’s solution portfolio, making it the largest and best-in-class higher education Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) provider. The company now includes the approximately 100-person, dedicated team of CRM and application management experts from Hobsons who will continue to design, develop, implement, and support these solutions at Campus Management.
“The CRM and application management products add to our already strong CampusNexus suite to achieve that goal, and the addition of the very talented Hobsons team members reinforces our mission to deliver the higher education platform and services that enable institutions to transform their academic delivery, student success, and operational efficiency, on their terms,” said Campus Management CEO Jim Milton.
Hobsons is well known for its leading K-12 college and career readiness platform Naviance, its student-college matching platform Intersect, and its higher education student success and analytics platform Starfish, and plans to concentrate on that core business moving forward.
