4 Technology Investments That Will Make a Difference in 2016

Letting your faculty’s successes shine means identifying and highlighting their accomplishments so that your university can tell its unique story. A faculty activity reporting solution that is user-friendly, intuitive, accessible and secure can help. With this in mind, we devoted resources from our talented team of DMers to many initiatives in the last year to ensure you have the most powerful faculty activity reporting solution at your fingertips.  

Creating a New User Interface

We gave our software a breath of fresh air with a new user interface. These changes brought efficiency and consistency to your university’s activity reporting efforts. Not only did we create a clean look and feel, we also streamlined navigation and created a more intuitive user experience.

Investing in Usability

Investing in usability is a top priority for us. We’re dedicated to making sure faculty and administrators alike find our faculty activity reporting software is intuitive and applicable. Our ultimate goal is to ensure our solution is a positive, productive and helpful experience. Understanding the “what” and “why” around client behavior gives us the insight we need to create the most positive user experience. One way we did this was by holding usability sessions with faculty members to see how they interact with the software.

Focusing on Accessibility

One of our goals is to ensure that our faculty activity reporting solution is usable and accessible to every person regardless of age, ability or situation. Last year, we put significant time and resources into testing and updating our design. These changes ensured that our product features were in alignment with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA as well as the Section 508 standards in the United States. As a part of this initiative, we consulted with industry experts to provide cutting-edge training, documentation, processes and assessment of accessibility to make sure we did things right.

Moving to a New Data Center

Leveraging new technologies that enable us to do more for you is a win-win. By moving to a new data center, we were able to make changes to improve security and increase performance. Some benefits of this transition include:

  • Increased uptime— servers up and running 99.9% of the time translates to less outages and user interruptions
  • Better response time—with faster processing times our pages load faster, which saves your faculty otherwise wasted time
  • Best and latest security practices—protecting your data both at rest and in transit
  • Quick protection from vulnerabilities—enabling us to identify and fix security issues immediately
