Hello Accudemia 2012

As we have previously announced, Accudemia was moved to Amazon Could servers to provide a more reliable service for our customers. We have highly improved our recovery plan in case of failures and we are still improving it. So we expect to provide even better service in 2012.Also, we are introducing a lot of improvements to the existent features. iAccu is unveiling the Multi Device Session Tracking Mode (MDST), where you can organize sessions and use multiple devices to sign-in and sign-out users. As iAccu can be used while you’re on a place with no Internet connection, MDST is an important addition since now multiple admins can track users simultaneously.Accudemia has many bug fixes and improvements with email templates being the most important addition. Now you can fully customize the text and format of all emails that Accudemia sends.What’s Next? Well, there’re many ideas for the future, but you’ll have to wait to see them. Send us your ideas, requests and everything you would like…

Moving to a more reliable place

We are pleased to announce that Accudemia will be moving to the Amazon cloud.  The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)offers a highly reliable, flexible, and secure environment.  The service runs within Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and datacenters.  The Amazon EC2 Service Level Agreement commitment is 99.95% availability! This move will provide Accudemia users with more reliable service. To assure minimal disruption to Accudemia users, we plan to move Accudemia during the Christmas break (December 17 to 31).  Sometime during this period, Accudemia will go down while we make the switch.  When it comes back, Accudemia will be running on Amazon.  All data will be moved as well and users will be able to continue where they left off.  Since this move is occurring during the holiday, we expect that most users will not even notice it. We are looking forward to providing you with even better service in 2012.

The long awaited update!

Many of you have been asking for new features, sending suggestions, complaints (not too many luckily) and any kind of change requests for Accudemia. I’m glad to announce that finally, after 3 long months, we have updated the site with a bunch of changes on it.The list of changes is long, but here are the things I like more:Site Speed:The performance of the site was greatly improved, some parts of the site were redone from scratch with performance in mind. Also the iAccu performance was improved, the sync is now so much faster, for real.Data Export:You can find a new option in the left menu to export your data. By doing so, you get the raw information, so you can analyze it by using Excel or any other tool you like.Fixed Walk-Ins:Tired of selecting the same information every time? Well, now you can “fix” the data that won’t change between different walk-ins, so students only have to select the information that is important for them. More options directly from the Intake System screen:Y…

As of today, you can grab a new and improved version of iAccu from the Apple App Store. Actually, you will find that the version that you have currently installed on your iPhone or iPod Touch will no longer work; this is due to a major update that was released for iAccu and Accudemia at the same time.If you didn’t downloaded the Update from the App Store, this is a good time for doing so.What’s New?The major change you will notice is in terms of responsiveness; the performance was greatly improved to allow users to handle much more data than before. While you’re syncing with Accudemia, you will have a good visual feedback about what’s going on in the background too (see pic). Also, you can now view the session log, or just who’s signed in, and sign them out right from the application! Another thing is that as of today, you can configure auto sign-out options as you do in Accudemia. Let’s say you don’t want students to be in for more than 45 minutes, OK, then just go to settings and en…

Track attendance wherever you are with iAccu

We are proud to announce that we have released the first version of iAccu. It’s an application developed for Apple iPod touch, iPhone and iPad devices that will convert them into powerful portable attendance tracking devices.
How does it work? Simple, take your iPhone, download the iAccu application from the App Store, and connect to Accudemia to start tracking who’s present and who’s absent in your classrooms. It also works in academic centers and in conferences, where you can track who enters and who leaves.

We also provide magnetic card readers that can be attached at the bottom of the device, so students can sign in by simply swiping their ID card.
This application works with Accudemia, AccuTrack and AccuSQL, that way you won't lose any of the benefits these products provide.
