The biggest impact was getting to that one catalog and that one source of truth so that students knew exactly what they were expected to do for four years, and faculty and staff and everyone were on the same page with curriculum implementation.

Acalog and Curriculog have been a huge component in the Graduation Initiative’s success. Since the campus-wide rollout, positive reviews have been received from advisers and faculty about the simplicity of catalog production with Acalog and the reduced time course and curriculum proposals take using Curriculog.

Des Moines Area Community College
Acalog brought us together as a college. We’ve gained structure and consistency, and that’s a big deal. Now we can focus on helping students graduate, which is our goal first and foremost.
When we went live with Curriculog, it really simplified a lot of things. It streamlined it so that we only ever have one version of a form out and we only have one version of a proposal. It's very easy to log in the system and see exactly where it is, who has it, how long they've had it and what the next step is.

What I like most is the mobile catalog. I do Google Analytics and see how many users are using the desktop and how many are using the mobile. I see the mobile slowly inching in. It used to be 50%, now it's 20%. I like to have that option of having the mobile catalog.

People now are used to being able to have access to the information they want 24/7, wherever they're at, wherever there's internet access. The key piece for students is the Acalog online catalog is accessible to them wherever they have a computer or a smart phone and internet access.
— Blake Buller, Assistant Articulation Officer
Saginaw Valley State University
Being as happy with Acalog as we were, and being as happy with DIGARC as were, Curriculog became a natural choice. We looked at competitors that couldn't touch our processes. We knew that eventually we would want to work with Curriculog right into our student information system, so Integration Manager was very enticing to me. A lot of my manual work that went between the end of the curriculum management process and the beginning of a catalog made Curriculog a really natural choice.
— Laura Peil, Special Assistant to the Provost
South Louisiana Community College
We're taking a project that — I’m not kidding you — probably took us nine months from start to finish down to four to six weeks, and I would say our errors went from 90% to 10%. The catalog is actually accurate, it has the right information now. And if you find a mistake, tell me because I can easily put in a period, I can add a comma and I can do it within 10 seconds.
