Former NFL Player Tackles Higher Ed Integrations

A.M. Simpkins & Associates is pleased to announce the release of the AMSA Connect platform, an Integration Data Analytics As-a-Service (I.D.E.A.S.) platform. The platform is tailored specifically for higher education institutions, helping them to seamlessly integrate data flow between third-party applications and ERP/SIS systems via one endpoint.

“I’ve always been a coder. It was honestly coding that made it possible for me to make one of my dreams come true of making it to the NFL,” said A.M. Simpkins & Associates Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Maurice Simpkins. “I was released from the Green Bay Packers the same year they made it to the Superbowl. My experience in the NFL pushed me to continue with my passion for technological innovation in higher education. And now with the release of AMSA Connect, we’re bringing the cutting edge of integration to Higher Education.”

With AMSA Connect, you have a one-stop-shop for any system integration solution, including CRMs, SISs, ERPs, and LMSs into one endpoint. Connectivity at this level facilitates a cerebral perspective of the massive data and BI flowing together across campus. This solution empowers institutions to remain in-sync with campus needs and activities through use of a fully customizable dashboard that displays visual insights with comprehensive error reports and analytics. AMSA Connect eliminates the need for manual entries, redundancies, and data verification while improving institutional data integrity.



In addition, AMSA Connect creates a user-friendly interface with point-n-click capability allowing integration to be automated- You can set and forget it.

“We’re so proud of the release of AMSA Connect,” said Bob DiGuardia, A.M. Simpkins & Associates’ Executive Vice President, Client Success. “We’re able to bring an agile, boutique solution to our clients in higher education, like Dallas Baptist University, who will go live today with their customized AMSA Connect solution.”

Dallas Baptist University, (DBU), is the first institution to implement AMSA Connect. A.M. Simpkins & Associates worked closely with Matt Winn, Dallas Baptist University’s Chief Information Officer to completely customize the solution to fit the needs of the university. DBU and A.M. Simpkins & Associates formed a true agile partnership, allowing DBU to have input on just how AMSA Connect could best meet their needs. (You can read more about the Dallas Baptist University by clicking here.)

“Ten years ago today, my focus was on the dream of playing in the NFL. Since then I worked endlessly to build another dream I had of creating a solution that would not only positively impact the world of Higher Education, but would change the future of integration.” Maurice continues to speak about his experience working with Matt Winn, Chief Information Officer of Dallas Baptist University, “Matt is very innovative and forward-thinking. He believed in me to help him bring his vision of creating a real-time Salesforce integration to Colleague ERP to life. And now we will be building out the pipeline for integrations of Course Dog, ADP, and Terra Dotta,” said Simpkins. “I’ve been able to see ten years of work come to fruition, this moment for me was my own personal Super Bowl. I look forward to helping more institutions step into the future of integration using AMSA Connect.”
