In this episode, ACCT’s Jacob Bray and David Conner spoke with CampusWorks Senior Vice President for Client Development Keith Myers about what community college trustees should know about ERP. Drawing from experiences at Educause’s 2020 Trend Watch, Myers demystifies the technical aspects of ERP, offering a market context and walking through the preparation, evaluation and implementation phases.
