Customer Case Study Winner

We were overwhelmed by the great response for this contest with over 40 great submissions.  Judging the submissions was a hard task given the excellent quality of these submissions.  Cetin Basoz, our lead developer, commented that he "was giving everyone a 10"!  Six judges scored each entry in these areas: creative usage, storytelling, media use, and effort.  The scores from the 6 judges were combined to get the results.

A big thank you goes out to all of the participants.  It is exciting to learn how each of these colleges uses the software differently.  Some of the uses are very creative!  For example, one college uses AccuTrack to track the distribution of caps and gowns for graduating seniors.  Another uses the software to schedule and track over 50 seminars held throughout the semester.  It is also interesting to see a sample report from one college showing over 273,000 visits logged with AccuSQL in just one semester!
And now for our top 3 selections!  Drum roll please...

1st Place: Borough of Manhattan Community College
2nd Place: Southeastern Community College
3rd Place: Harding University

Other institutions that should receive honorable mentions include: Pulaski Technical College, Fort Lewis College, Edison State College, Del Mar College, Rochester College, St. Louis Community College, and Pasco-Hernando Community College as they finished in our "top ten" selection.
 
The top 3 selections get to choose from gifts that include the Apple iPad mini and popular e-readers.  The top 4 to 10 will get a cool flash drive, Engineerica branded gifts, and 50 Engineerica dollars that they can use towards a future purchase from Engineerica.  All other participants will be receiving an assortment of branded Engineerica gifts.  If you were among those who participated, then expect an email message soon with more information.

Once again we would like to thank this year's participants.  By giving us insights on how you use these products you gave us a better understanding of the impact they make.  For the full list of submissions, click here.

Hopefully that's not your case, but in any case if we can save tutors, advisors or counselors a few seconds of their time, we have made their job easier and more valuable.Starting today, we're rolling out an update that lets staff members sign-in and sign-out with only one click (OK, maybe two).On the top-right part of the screen, staff members will see a button indicating whether they are signed-in or not. Clicking there will show a small popup to let them sign-in or sign-out, without having to leave the screen they are currently on.When signed-out:
When signed-in:If you are an administrator and don't think this is useful or want to disable it for any reason, you can do so in the Control Panel.

How-to: Scheduling Appointments

Accudemia has always offered different ways to create an appointment. Each method is intended for users trying to find appointments using different criterias. For example, if you want to list all tutors available for a certain course you might want to use the New Appointment method. The Wizard lets you find the perfect appointment for you in a simple 5 step procedure instead, where you are prompted to select the dates, services, the course and tutor you want. The 3rd way is using the Manual method, which is enabled only to administrators and it allows them to select exactly what they want and bypass several validations the system might enforce using the Wizard or the New Appointment methods.Here’s a quick description on how to use each one of these features.New AppointmentYou can find it under Center Attendance > Appointments > New Appointment. The page displays a filter with the next options: Use From/To filters to view only availability in that period of time. The center can…

Don't be intimidated by the seemingly daunting task of creating and easy way for your student, tutor, and admins to login to Accudemia via your school's portal.  It is far easier than it may seem.  As a support person here at Engineerica I noticed this feature is something that schools want to offer their users but are afraid to get started or maybe do not know where to do so.  Here we will go through the process of implementing SSO (Single Sign-On) easily for your institution.
