Neenah Joint School District’s use of InvGate’s COVID-19 response program
Neenah Joint School District serves over 6,200 students and is a frontrunner in many areas including academics, athletics, and the arts. The District was already an InvGate customer, using the InvGate Service Desk, Insight, and Assets solutions. They use the Service Desk solution for managing all IT, Human Resources (HR), Facilities, and Operations requests and processes.
During the pandemic crisis, all Neenah's students moved to virtual classes, with the many challenges that this implies. To help with this change of education delivery model, Neenah extended its use of the InvGate Service Desk tool – using additional free licenses obtained via the InvGate COVID-19 response program – to technically-assist the parents of students in moving to, and managing, the new virtual education-delivery tools.
Bryan VonDeylen, Help Desk Manager for Neenah Joint School District, said that: “I’m very happy with the solutions’ ease of use, and especially happy with InvGate's response to our feature requests, and how quickly they’re implemented.”
He added that: “This ease of use and how quickly you can implement changes are the reasons why a tool like InvGate Service Desk is what’s needed during times of crisis. We needed to adapt the tool and we needed to do it immediately. You can do this in minutes with InvGate Service Desk and without any professional services (as you might need to with other service desks tools).”
