Collaboration Between N2N and Modo Labs Supplies SIS Data to Mobile Apps for Student Success
A leading integration platform company and mobile communication and engagement leader team up to put the power of data at the fingertips of WIT students
Duluth, GA, June 8, 2016 (Newswire.com) –Today, N2N announced that its Illuminate Platform has successfully integrated Wentworth Institute of Technology’s (WIT) Student Information System (SIS) with Modo Labs’ Kurogo App Assembly System. Illuminate’s Hybrid Integration Platform (HIP) and standardized APIs create a secure and efficient pathway for WIT’s SIS data to flow to mobile apps created on the Kurogo Platform and provide students with the information they need to manage their academic affairs.
N2N’s Illuminate Platform is an innovative integration software suite that allows business users to configure APIs, setup security profiles, transform data field names, and configure data translations. Illuminate provides over 120 standardized bidirectional APIs that allow institutions to easily integrate common SIS, LMS, identity systems, financial management and student engagement platforms among others. Illuminate provides a standardized web services URL that allows SaaS products and mobile apps to easily connect to one access point. This API interface can support users with the development of unified dashboards, immersive mobile apps and real-time analytics tools.
“Wentworth Institute of Technology is dedicated to providing our students with an education and learning experience that prepares them for today’s and tomorrow’s digital economy. Thanks to N2N’s and Modo Labs’ solution, we are also providing our students with the digital tools they need to navigate their way through the student lifecycle.”
Modo Labs’ Kurogo Platform is the first app assembly system that puts powerful mobile implementation and deployment capabilities, previously only attainable by hiring expensive mobile developers, directly in the hands of non-developers. At the heart of Kurogo is a Mobile-Optimized Middleware server that accesses and quickly combines and transforms any data source or dynamic feed, such as maps, social media, news, videos, transit, LMS, and more, into a rich and curated mobile experience. In addition, Kurogo empowers non-technical staff or business owners to create and further enhance native mobile apps with a modern and sophisticated user experience, and include special purpose modules for conference events, new student or employee orientation, commencement, career fairs, or any other aspect of campus life. Kurogo’s unique combination of data access, powerful pre-built functionality, and ease-of-use, dramatically reduces mobile development time and costs.
Wentworth’s new app provides a centralized and seamless mobile experience where students can easily access important information about campus life while on the go. For example, the new app allows students to find up-to-date campus news and athletics information, access interactive campus maps, search the directory, provide feedback, submit help desk or residential work tickets, search job openings, among other features. The powerful combined platform takes the mobile experience to the next level by also enabling students to register for classes and engage in other SIS-related transactions on their phones.
“Wentworth Institute of Technology is dedicated to providing our students with an education and learning experience that prepares them for today’s and tomorrow’s digital economy,” said WIT Director of Enterprise Applications, Mia He. “Thanks to N2N’s and Modo Labs’ solution, we are also providing our students with the digital tools they need to navigate their way through the student lifecycle.”
“We are very excited about our collaboration with Modo Labs,” stated N2N’s Founder and CEO Kiran Kodithala. “Together, N2N and Modo Labs are using our innovative technologies and know-how to expose actionable data to students – we are literally putting the power of data at their fingertips.” Mr. Kodithala concluded, “Today’s digitally connected students expect to manage their academic schedules and finances in the same way they use commercial apps to manage their social calendar and events. WIT is now providing their students with the digital tools they need to graduate and succeed in their professional lives.”
Stewart Elliot, Modo Labs’ CEO added “It is rewarding to see N2N and Modo Labs’ systems come together to provide a comprehensive mobile experience for WIT students. Students can now seamlessly perform direct transactions on their phone, yet do so as part of an advanced, interactive and rich mobile app enabled by Modo Labs’ Kurogo platform. We are looking forward to our continued partnership with N2N and the transformational impact it will have on the student experience.”
