Education User Cases
Providing a cost-effective solution to a wide range of applications for a large student body as well as your Professional Services team.
A cost-effective self-service solution to a wide range of applications is important for Academic institutions to provide. The environment in each institution comprises firstly of a mix of academic and support staff. Secondly, a large student population, which enrols annually. Increasingly the introduction of wireless standards such as eduroam, means that users need to be able to access the service from different locations within the town or campus.
Our solutions provide educational institutions with the option of being able bulk enroll students, therefore reducing the overheads at the start of a new academic year. Special educational offers provide a highly competitive offering for all institutions.
Large institutions with staff and student numbers exceeding 14,000 people who need to be able to manage any password resets, whilst on multiple campuses or remotely. This is one of the main challenges that occur with agile ways of working. If a user resets a password at one location, this reset needs to synchronise at additional locations. This ensures that they can continue working wherever they are. In addition, the time to process password resets is traditionally slow and does not support new ways of working. In other words, having to visit an IT support facility the next time you are on campus. The volumes of users that change regularly is also a challenge. Similarly, the potential costs that this number of users could accumulate.
Our solution integrates with various IT Service Management tools to help support systems that may already be in place. Crucially it allows users to self-serve and reset their own passwords without the need to visit or contact the Help-desk. The facility to bulk enroll users from HR and Student Registers means that certain annual pressure points in the year are alleviated. Using key features such as mandatory enrolment will also ensure that customer usage is greatly improved. In addition, it cuts down extensively on traffic at IT support. The result is a more efficient and productive working environment for the Institution.
