When it comes to providing unmatched online education, there’s no substitute for seamless data integration. Bisk has extensive expertise and the technical resources to ensure that your student data is secure, accessible, accurate and easily integrated into university-designed or industry-standard Student Information Systems (SIS) such as Banner, Jenzabar® and DataTel. Each university has different needs, concerns and systems, and our team provides the flexibility and reliability you need as we work together to achieve the most effective, efficient solution for you. And, as a Microsoft® Certified Provider, Bisk offers integration via the latest and most secure data transfer methods, from application and enrollment to course delivery.
Our fully electronic online application system allows your applicants and administrators to easily track the application process in a user-friendly central location. Forms are designed to your exact specifications, allowing the application to mimic the processes already in place on your campus. As students complete the process they can include any university-required electronic documents such as transcripts, resumes and letters of recommendation.
Our Enrollment Order System helps students enroll in courses following their program plan. It also ensures seat availability and that all students are entered into the Learning Management System. It provides students the option of paying their associated tuition and book fees, then viewing enrollment details, payment method chosen and legal terms/conditions before accepting them via electronic signature. Enrollment confirmation e-mail provides a receipt, followed by shipping notifications that include delivery method and tracking information.
We work with all Learning Management System (LMS) types – from industry-standard platforms to university-designed systems – to help you extend your ground-based program. Or, if you don’t have an LMS or don’t want the challenge of maintaining one, we provide a customizable, fully functional interactive learning environment that offers PC, Mac and mobile device compatibility. If you have questions, one-on-one support is available for university administration, faculty and staff.
As a Microsoft® Certified Provider, Bisk maintains an in-house technology group comprised of web developers, software engineers, network administrators, research and development engineers, educational course designers, technical writers and quality assurance professionals. This team ensures that the technology is state-of-the-art and runs smoothly all day, every day.

Each Qwest CyberCenter is designed to withstand disastrous conditions relative to its location, ensuring that the systems and equipment continue to run even under extreme conditions.
Our system architecture provides for real-time redundancy with load balancing over multiple servers. This provides the added benefit of allowing system maintenance without any loss of service to our students.
