We currently use Adirondack, The Housing Director (THD). They were acquired by StarRez in 2022. As a result, the pricing increase and gradual phase out of THD (i.e. no new development), we'll be looking for another solution in the next year or so. Kind Regards, Jim James M. Maher II ...

Good Day, Not sure what happened, but somehow I replied to the wrong thread. My apologies... That said, our Cybersecurity Insurance process has been challenging to say the least. This year, we were required to complete an extremely comprehensive and time consuming survey. Frankly, the requirements ...

Good Day Colleagues, Was wondering if your technical teams have ever gone through a selection process for a Privileged Access Management (PAM) vendor solution. If so, would you mind sharing the RFP or bid document (looking mainly for the requirements/features definitions/matrix). Thanks in advance! ...

Good Day Colleagues, We may be a bit behind the rest of you, but our institution is considering the overall impact of texting our students. We're trying to avoid what eventually happened to email – being ignored, not read, considered spam or "white noise", etc. Have any of you developed a ...
