North Idaho College Moves to SaaS Scheduling System -- Improves Efficiency and Campus Security, Reduces Energy Use, and Saves Money

North Idaho College recently migrated its 25Live course and event scheduling a hosted (SaaS) system. The school reports that the SaaS service keeps them current with the latest 25Live version and saves them money.

According to Tammy Robertson, Senior Systems Analyst/Programmer at North Idaho:
“Before, when we were maintaining the system on our campus servers, we didn’t have administrative time to stay current with upgrades. Now that we’ve moved to SaaS, we’re always current with the latest version, and we’re saving so much administrative time that the hosted system actually costs us less.”
25Live SaaS has improved North Idaho’s institutional optimization, maintenance efficiency and security. Now, executive leaders can identify scheduling inefficiencies and make improvements. They can identify which rooms are sitting empty, for example, and adjust HVAC scheduling to reduce energy consumption and save money.
“The system is very intuitive and user friendly,” Tammy reports. “We can have as many users as we want. Service providers and facilities staff can get reports for HVAC and check for maintenance needs. Security can run reports and see which rooms are occupied at any specific time.  It helps all departments do their jobs and improves security for students.”
