A Smarter Future Awaits
Enhancing Daily Life on the Digitally Connected Campus
The university of the Digital Age is not your parents’ alma mater. The integration of new technologies, like digital smart classrooms with interactive whiteboards, smart parking systems, navigation and wayfinding, as well as behavioral analytics is transforming campus life.
What’s more, staying connected via mobile digital devices to social media, global information, entertainment, educational content and more is a way of life for today’s college students – and they expect the same personalized, contextual connectivity everywhere on campus. University management strategies are also changing as administrators seek better ways to harness digital technologies to make the campus run more efficiently and safely – providing the best on-campus experience for students and staff.
Zyter puts all of this is reach. And more.
Zyter Smart Universities & Schools is a highly secure, customizable and manageable solution that helps connect a university’s disparate data systems, departments, and people to provide more actionable insights for improving campus operations as well as the student and faculty experience. It breaks down siloes of information – by integrating and consolidating data from all segments of the campus which you may already have or are planning to build – into one seamless interface. The result: complete visibility of what is happening across your campus including stakeholders, departments, resources and your entire network of connected devices and sensors.
A three-pronged approach helps higher education institutions holistically develop their digital strategies and offerings and implement them as smart campus technologies. As a result, administrators can maximize resources, improve safety, and integrate new learning technologies across the campus. And with access to online education resources and content on any digital device, students can benefit from personalized learning to improve their educational outcomes and enjoy a more meaningful university experience.
