For UWTSD, providing a flexible communication platform to connect its staff, students and external contacts is a necessity. Enabling people to connect with one another is central to our institutional mission to reinvent productivity and help staff and students make the most of every moment they spend at the University.
With the institutions vast growth over a short period of time and an increase in the number of campuses throughout Wales and beyond, the requirement to provide staff and students the ability to communicate and collaborate has become more important than ever.
The University has experienced the need to undertake this requirement more effectively without limitations by using a range of different devices. This therefore aims to negate the need to travel to or between campuses to meet face to face solely for communication purposes whilst greatly reducing CO2 emissions, travel expense claims and drastically increasing productivity.
1 Engage with users prior to project initiation gathering user requirements to maximise user adoption
2 Where possible gather expenditure & CO2 emission details before and after project implementation
3 Create training material and sessions to assist users adopting the new technology.
