Tightest Banner Integration, Less Work for IT

Ellucian Best Practices

As Ellucian's Partner of the Year, we integrate directly through Banner APIs or the Ethos-validated solution – both deployed based on Ellucian best practices.

In-House Expertise

With dedicated in-house Ellucian Banner expertise, we offer the broadest integration in the market with a direct, up-to-real-time integration. Implement with resources that have worked at or consulted with Banner schools.

Take the Load Off IT

No-code maintenance for end users & a simple integration dashboard ensures less work for IT.

Say Goodbye to Messy Flat Files

With a validated integration with Ellucian Ethos & direct database exposure via API, we’ve successfully deployed this integration with on premise and hosted/cloud solutions. Both solutions are built to follow Ellucian designation best practice standards in mind around architecture & security.

“While several vendors claimed to have a direct Banner integration, we quickly realized that the other vendors were proposing flat file data transfers or limited direct integrations. This would have left our IT team scrambling to get messy flat files into the SIS or our functional admins to manually enter duplicate data into the SIS such as cross-lists and linked sections. Coursedog has completely automated the Banner sync for us… our IT barely even knows Coursedog.”
