Available now for PeopleSoft, Banner, Datatel and other student systems.

Smart Panda - Newsletter Postman

We recently announced Web Services for Real-time enrollment transfer between schools.

However, a very large volume of student data exchange is happening now with EDI or some related file-exchanges (SPEEDE, TS130 and others).

College “A” is sending student transcript and enrollment information to University “B” in the form of a structured text, csv or xml file.

We are happy to offer a new highly automated import tool (“the EDI Hub“) so that you can import this student data

  • Real time or Scheduled
  • Automate student enrollment load
    • Import to Staging Table
    • Automate Load to PeopleSoft External Education
    • Or go all the way! Load enrollment data into External Education and Course Transfer Credits Real time!

EDI Hub brings your school unique new capabilities

1. Automated File Parsing and Import

According to, every month tens or hundreds of thousands of student transcripts are sent electronically between schools!

But the EDI format can be very cumbersome for receiving schools to import!  The file layouts can be very specific and may have slight variations to try to code around!  Besides the standard TS130 file layout there are many state and local variations and newer XML standards from organizations like PESC and Clearinghouse.

With EDI Hub we’ve done the hard work for you!

  • Maps to the incoming data format
  • Maps to your highest volume “feeder” schools from which students are sending transcripts to you
  • Streamlines the logic to focus on the most significant data – student enrollment history and grades!

2. Schedule EDI Import to run on a recurrence

You can import EDI student data from an administrative dashboard (for one student or groups of students) or you can setup EDI Import to run nightly and sweep files from a network drive!

  • Automatically identifies student and sending school
  • Your choice of where we import the data – to staging, to External Education, or even to Course Transfer Credits

3. Plug into our Nationwide Hub Routing system

We know that you send and receive data with many other schools – there is no need for you to map all those connections; the EDI Hub routes the data for you!

  • Receive student data from any student system – Banner, Datatel, etc.
  • The Hub is a high performance, robust and secure cloud system to automate the handshake between Sender and Receiver
  • Get a Hub User Interface that gives you monitoring, logging and charts of transmissions
