Mike Perkins DI Squared
John Ogle and Dawn Thomas NACCU

NACCU understands that utilizing the data in your card systems to generate insights and assist your campus in knowledge-based decision making is a dream of many Vice Presidents and leadership on campuses. This task can be daunting and deciding where to start can be the biggest hurdle. Furthermore, developing processes to achieve consistency in data preparation across platforms may make this seem impossible. But if you do not utilize the power in your data, are you really making the best decisions for your campus? Your tools and expertise are only as valuable as the ability to take advantage of them. That is what NACCU wants to help you do!

 NACCU has outlined below a progressive program, with building blocks leading to the Summit in June 2022 which will be a two-day in-person event with hands-on training. Join us as we teach you how to use Excel and Power Query to transform your data, create dashboards, and analyze your information to aid you in running a more efficient program for your campus. All training at the Data Summit will be taught at the beginner-to-intermediate level, with minimal to no usage of formulas and advanced techniques. Come join us for a sneak peek at the platform – this Summit will be applicable to you, no matter what card platform or integrations you use. You can do this!!


Migrating Access Control: ROI is the New CapEx

Jason Friedberg Genetec

Core Competencies: Communication |Planning |Technology
Level: Beginner Intermediate

Capital Expenditures (CapEx) Legacy access control systems are showing their age on campus. Isolated and single purpose, they’re largely unable to integrate the new technologies that school administrator expect, like mobile, and provide greater protection, visibility, and value beyond security. They’re also exceedingly vulnerable to breaches if even a single user’s account is compromised. Despite the downsides, misperceptions about migrating to a more open, unified model of campus security keeps many pouring capital and time into systems that can’t keep up. This session breaks down misconceptions and provides practical guidance on the benefits of a modern, IP-based platform and strategies for presenting a case for migration.

Discussion questions:

  • What capabilities are now important to have in an access control system?
  • How can I leverage the investment in gear I already have vs. throwing it out and starting over?     
  • How do I get others to understand an ‘ROI vs CapEx’ approach to migrating access control?

Group Discussion:  Being a Woman in Leadership

Jessica Bender Palm Beach State College

Core Competencies: Leadership
Level: Beginner Intermediate Advanced

Much research has shown that female leaders face the need to be warm and nice and competent and tough. This often leads to a conflict as these qualities are often considered opposites. Women are faced with this every day. We often have to work harder and do more to get to the same levels as our male counterparts. We are master multi-taskers, balancing our family as well as our professional lives. The Pandemic has put even more pressure on many of us as we have been forced to become teachers (while working), and find ways to keep our families sane while still being relevant in the professional landscape. Let’s chat about how you are navigating the professional landscape and achieving success. I will share my own journey, including things I have done to help in my move up the ladder. I have several tips that I am happy to share including the importance of professional development, mentors, taking initiative, and developing relationships. This chat will be a chance to network with other leaders within our NACCU community.

Upgrading to a Unified Multi Campus e-Commerce Program

Susan Robinson University of Maine System
James Connors  University of Maine System

Core Competencies: Administration and Operations |Fiscal Management |Planning |
Level: Beginner Intermediate

The University of Maine System, consisting of seven campuses, was utilizing different e-commerce software, operating autonomously throughout the state. Due to the continued growth and popularity of online learning, more students were taking classes at multiple campuses and experiencing e-commerce restrictions. Blackboard (now Transact), was awarded the access control RFP for online door access system-wide in 2014, with the intent to move toward a one-card access control and e-commerce  system within a five year period. In early 2019 planning and preparations were set in motion to add the e-commerce piece (photo submission, financial, activities, reporting, printing & copying, gym access, and dining systemwide). This presentation outlines the steps and timeline involved with moving all campuses within the University of Maine System to the same platform during a six week period. In 2019, the decision was made to upgrade our card e-commerce program for six universities throughout the University of Maine System during winter break. This included software training, installing new hardware, updating financial processes and creating attendance tracking reports. With only six weeks to complete the project, we will review the challenges we faced, along with the collaborative effort by many to successfully launch this upgrade before the beginning of the spring semester.

Discussion questions:

  • What e-commerce software does your campus currently utilize?
  • How many university campuses is your card office responsible for?
  • Who is responsible for and makes the decision to change/upgrade software and hardware for your card office?
