Project Chroma

Project Chroma is OCAD University’s multi-year project to replace its aging Student Information System (My Records) and our Finance and HR/Payroll systems with a modern, integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution.

Chroma (noun)

  1. The purity of a colour; its freedom from white or grey
  2. Intensity of distinctive hue; saturation of a colour

The name “Project Chroma” represents OCAD U’s dedication to creating a colourful and exciting environment for its students, faculty and staff, and minimizing the gray and mundane associated with administrative information systems.

The main objective of the project is to improve the student experience by providing enhanced service delivery and resources to students to help them to better plan, manage, and achieve academic success.

Through an intelligent and integrated information system OCAD University will realize significant operational efficiencies and will provide substantial opportunities for faculty and staff to better focus on student achievement and experience.

From the first point of contact to graduation and beyond, current and prospective students and alumni will be able to track information and resources online and via mobile devices, that is specific to their educational path including advising, degree audit, academic history, and financial information in a modern, self-service format.

The replacement of the existing Finance, Human Resources and Payroll systems with refreshed, integrated solutions will provide a wide range of process improvements that will benefit the entire OCAD University community through increased self-service functionality, reduced manual processing, and advanced reporting and analytic capabilities.
