“UNC’s goal was to expand their previous information-only app to one that makes life easier on campus with strong utilities and functions provided by GreyHeller’s PeopleMobile®,” said Hendrix Bodden, GreyHeller Co-Founder. “UNC Chapel Hill is a leader in mobilizing and securing their PeopleSoft systems. Their implementation is a model for other institutions.”
According to Kate Hash, UNC’s Manager of ITS Communications, “Up until Friday, our largest download month had been 600 downloads of the app. On Friday alone, we had 2,000. It is clear that ConnectCarolina
is adding value to the app and that the students are now discovering the app because they want to use ConnectCarolina.”
As part of a broad roll-out and communications plan, UNC’s CarolinaGo
team trained orientation leaders this summer to provide freshman with information about the app. Even parents of freshman received information about the app during parent sessions.
UNC students have found the app to be successful, according to The Daily Tar Heel
Kyra Rubin, a freshman at UNC, said, “I definitely use it. I’ve used it basically all week to find my class times.”
Anna Kelly, also a freshman, said, “I have used it a lot to check up on my schedule, so I can pull up ConnectCarolina if I forgot the room number or the location of one of my classes.”
