Why Choose Coursedog over EMS
Institutions who are looking for an integrated academic operations tool that includes key features such as rules validation and course demand projects will find Coursedog to be the ideal solution.
Integrated Course, Room, and Event Scheduling:
EMS is a room and event scheduling software with very little capability around section scheduling. Coursedog has a fully integrated academic and event scheduling solution that makes it easy for institutions to schedule course sections, instructors, rooms, and events on campus.
Integrated Curriculum and Catalog Management:
EMS has no tools for curriculum and catalog management. Coursedog’s modern, intuitive UI, self-serve capabilities, flexible data model, and high level of configurability results in higher administration and faculty adoption rates and a smoother change management experience.
Course Demand Projections
EMS provides some analytics around space utilization, but is unable to provide data around enrollment or degree pathways. Coursedog provides institutions with actionable academic reporting & course demand projections that support on-time completions and operational excellence.
Customer Service as a Top Priority:
While both companies share a commitment to customer service, Coursedog's partners experience a level of care that is truly responsive and supportive through every step of their journey with us.
Proven Bi-Directional SIS Integrations:
Coursedog is proud to offer bi-directional, real-time integrations with the industry’s leading SIS platforms: Oracle PeopleSoft, Ellucian Banner, Ellucian Colleague, Ellucian Colleague Ethos, Ellucian Powercampus, Anthology, and Jenzabar EX.
“The more third party solutions you bring on and integrate with, the higher the security risks you’re opening yourself up to. These processes also remain disparate when using different tools to execute them.”
