Rechargeable Comfort

Bretford’s MOTIV High-Back Sofa was designed to provide a semiprivate and comfortable space for students and others on campus who are resting or working, alone or in groups. The MOTIV High-Back Sofa has an optional power module with an AC outlet and USB charger, allowing users to charge laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices.

Paperless Applications

Hobsons’ AppReview is a web-based interface for the paperless review of admissions applications. It was designed to support programs with reviewers both on-site and in remote locations, in centralized and decentralized offices. Coordinators bundle and assign applications to reviewers, who can then sort, filter, and search the materials the way they want, with an inbox look and feel. Once an application is completed, head reviewers can send decision recommendations into the ApplyYourself centralized application management solution.

Mobile Banking

Through the eAccounts Mobile app from Blackboard, students can check their campus debit card account balance, view transactions, make real-time deposits, and manage security features on iOS smartphones or tablets. A campus-specific mobile app from the Apple iTunes store will integrate with Blackboard Transact. Enabling student management of card accounts helps alleviate card office staff from routine transactions.

Facebook Management

Jenzabar Social allows higher ed institutions to transform static Facebook pages into dynamic communities by combining many disparate pages into one view. Current and prospective students, enrollment administrators, faculty, and alumni can connect and share. With enhanced privacy settings, colleges and universities can offer more secure online transactions. For example, admissions candidates can submit paperwork and alumni can donate via Facebook. Existing students can connect directly to courses in Jenzabar’s LMS and share information with other classmates right on Facebook. Private communities can allow users to collaborate without having a Facebook account or needing to become Facebook friends with others.
