Vendor Presentation Wed., July 30 – HighPoint Mobile on PeopleSoft Mobilization

Technology Services is in the process of moving toward mobilizing PeopleSoft and developing a mobile web and mobile app presence for ICC. A vendor coming to campus on Wednesday, July 30, will demonstrate how they provide mobile access and how this fits with our needs to provide this service to our students. These sessions are intended to give attendees exposure to a potential direction we may be going in mobile for ICC.

HighPoint Technology Solutions is one of the leaders in mobilizing PeopleSoft and is one of the mobile platforms under consideration for ICC. HighPoint provides a way not only to make PeopleSoft functionality mobile friendly but also provides a unified platform to launch a mobile app for both iOS and Android devices for both smartphones and tablets.
