It’s official. Ellucian Mobile is now available. In the Ellucian Mobile—Vision and Roadmap session, Wayne Bovier, director of product management for Ellucian, introduced this complete mobile solution that can be easily integrated with existing IT platforms and strategies.
One of the most exciting solution launches of 2013, Ellucian Mobile is delivered on a mobile framework that supports both native and web applications. Bovier explained that it comes in two editions: application and platform. Institutions can choose to implement an easily configurable turnkey application (application edition) that can be fully launched in hours or opt to build, customize, and manage their own mobile environments (platform edition).
“Students use smartphones, tablets, and other devices, so it is important that you offer mobile information services,” he said. This next-generation mobile solution makes it easy and cost-effective to launch your own customized, branded mobile offering across your entire campus community.
According to Bovier, Ellucian is so excited about the potential that this has to help institutions that we are granting a perpetual license for Ellucian Mobile. “Sign up before June 15, 2013, and we’ll grant the license fee for either option you select,” he said.
Bovier then thanked the beta partners and community members that engaged in its development from soup to nuts, highlighted key differentiators, support services available, and walked through the differences in the application and platform editions. Finally, he focused on the 2013 roadmap: expect to see ILP integration, SSO support, multimedia messaging, Apple® iPad®/tablet versions, registration, integration with Ellucian Recruiter™, and much more.
