New Strategies to Manage Student USPS Mail at Universities

New Strategies to Manage Student USPS Mail at Universities

I spend a significant amount of time in university mailrooms. Sometimes, I make three separate visits a week.  Mailrooms used to be the place where students picked up their check from home, received their bank statements & magazine subscriptions and occasionally found a hand written slip for a care package from Mom.  With the advent of email, electronic banking, the decline of printed magazines (particularly with college age subscribers) AND the boom in online ordering (everything from textbooks to tires),…

Using Enterprise Barcode Tracking Software to Track Conference Attendance & Certification

Using Enterprise Barcode Tracking Software to Track Conference Attendance & Certification

More and more organizations today are implementing barcode tracking software to replace their outdated and inefficient conference tracking methods. One outdated method requires conference staff to carry clipboards with checklists and pencils to admit and track attendees to the conference and to each course. That data is usually entered by staffers into a spreadsheet after the conference to track attendance, run reports and to create course completion certificates. The clipboard method usually works fine for conferences with under 50 attendees…
