We recently had the opportunity to speak with Trace Urdan with Wells Fargo Securities. As Trace sat down with us in Las Vegas, he discussed current events with us, including the government’s regulatory involvement in the sector, competition from the traditional sector in the marketplace, and of course, hopes for the future of the education sector. Trace also went into a little more detail about his personal opinions regarding laudable efforts to improve regulations, as well as the current economy and its impending implications. We had a great time chatting with Trace, and thank him for taking the time to speak with us at APSCU 2012.
Does he really need an introduction? What’s a visit to Vegas without the King himself—Elvis! Elvis stopped by at APSCU 2012 to say hello, and even serenade us! We thank Elvis for stepping in front of the camera with us-- Viva Las Vegas!
Jami Morshed, , Three Rivers Systems
At APSCU 2012, we were excited to have the opportunity to speak with Jami Morshed, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Three Rivers Systems, touted as “The only truly disruptive academic ERP serving higher education.” And how exactly is Three Rivers Systems disruptive? According to Jami, by coming into an established market but offering innovative technology that can change the order of business, Three Rivers Systems is able to essentially do what Netflix did to Blockbuster. We asked Jami what it takes to adopt these systems for schools, the implementation process the process, and which establishments can benefit most from Three Rivers Systems services. As Jami says, institutions are often bogged down by tasks that don’t advance their original purpose—to educate the public—and Three Rivers Systems seeks to help institutions focus on that important goal. We enjoyed our chat with Jami, and appreciated him taking the time to chat with us. Bogged down with tasks other than their original purpose—to educate students.
LeadiD had a unique vision to allow Lead Buyers (Schools, Agencies, and Aggregators) and Lead Sellers (Organic Lead Providers, Call Centers and Aggregators) to operate in a trusted environment. The LeadiD Platform has been developed in collaboration with lead providers and lead buyers to provide an independent neutral technology. LeadiD allows Lead Sellers to definitively prove that they are generating and selling authentic quality leads. LeadiD allows Lead Buyers to make the best decisions about the leads they buy based on the true history and origin of the lead. For an easy analogy, think of LeadiD as the issuing agency of an auto VIN number, a Universal LeadiD, combined with the definitive data of the CarFax Report, a LeadiD Audit. Founded in January 2011, LeadiD traces its roots to conceptual conversations as early as 2007, when industry insiders and influencers began discussing how to solve the last fundamental problem in lead generation.
