Our Clients Say…..
Zia at Ocean Bright Consulting changed the way we graduate our students. She helped us create a program that identifies all students who completed graduation requirements and the program graduates them within about six hours. Before, we reviewed everyone manually and it took 4-6 weeks. We regularly graduate 75-85% of our students using this amazing program.
Ocean Bright Consulting has been an amazing help to Cal Poly Pomona! Working with OBC, we have improved the accuracy of the Degree Audit and reduced our reliance on manual exceptions. OBC then leveraged the Degree Audit information to create reports that we can use to keep our students on track for degree completion. OBC’s commitment and dedication to the priorities and goals of Cal Poly Pomona were reflective in their work. I was impressed with their competence, flexibility, and attentiveness they provided our campus throughout the project.
Zia is wonderful to work with! She listens well, asks all the right questions, and proposes solutions to best meet your campus needs. She provides comprehensive closing documentation that can be referenced long after her departure. Zia has helped significantly improve our degree audit!
Ocean Bright Consulting helped our campus transition to a re-designed general education format and through Zia's consultation, team members from different areas across campus were able to coordinate curriculum setup, transfer credit and degree audit changes. Thanks to Zia, it was a seamless transition for Advisors, Registrar's office, and our students.
The University of Arizona has contracted with Ocean Bright Consulting on multiple occasions. Specifically, we have accessed their services to assist with development and configuration projects in Peoplesoft Campus Solutions. The differentiator in their services is that they not only have a depth of knowledge in the technology, but they also bring a comprehensive set of skills in analysis, systems thinking, and process building. More than once, we have contracted Zia and her consultants to assist our organization in solving complex processes. Their experience in working within the complex structures of higher education has been invaluable in helping us to both understand what we are trying to solve as well as providing multiple paths to a solution. I would recommend Ocean Bright Consulting again and again with zero reservations.
Zia built a program that identifies students who applied for graduation and are missing requirements. We then communicate to the students so they can enroll in additional courses needed to stay on track to graduate. Zia breaks down programming technology to ensure that end users understand. She is attentive to your needs and very creative when she is designing a solution.
Zia at Ocean Bright Consulting has worked on many high-profile projects for San Jose State University from major platform upgrades to functionality enhancements that have increased our ability to serve students in a timely and efficient way. In all instances, Zia has worked with us as a partner to identify the best solutions, both technical and business process-related, and to lead us through the implementation in a way that meets or exceeds our goals.
Ocean Bright Consulting assisted HighPoint in the development of our Degree Planner product. In addition to Zia's in-depth PeopleSoft knowledge, her understanding of real-world Advising scenarios was critical in our creation of a product that helps Advisors and Students map the best path to graduation. In addition, her experience with curriculum-related business processes helped us ensure that Degree Planner works not just for students but also for the Advisors and staff that use and maintain it. Her passion for helping higher education institutions and their students was a great fit with our mission as a user-focused software company.
