Today, I wanted to call attention to a series of social media posts that I have found to be an extremely insightful and worthwhile read as an Ed Tech vendor, especially during these unprecedented times. This #DearVendor series pulls together observations and recommendations from Higher Ed IT leaders with the intention of providing vendors a peek behind the curtain on how their messaging is being received.
#DearVendor: Words of Advice from Higher Ed IT Leaders - Read post.
#DearVendor: Know Me, Know My Business - Read post.
#DearVendor: Coronavirus Edition - Read post.
#DearVendor: How Can We Help? Coronavirus Edition, Part 2 - Read post.
With many in the education space undergoing massive change, transitioning to a mobile workforce and virtual learning, these posts have truly helped me understand with more clarity the pressures and challenges our contacts in education are currently facing.
And for us here at Softdocs, we take great pride in our standing as THE education-focused provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions and the opportunity we have to serve many educational institutions across our country. We LOVE the culture of collaboration within the education space, and through Dev Partner relationships, we have seen open and honest communication with education IT leaders advance our product suite - ensuring every need of the modern student is met. In Raechelle Clemmons’ #DearVendor series, this collaborative spirit is very evident and ready to expand the understanding and perspective of all who read it, especially Ed Tech vendors.
If you haven’t read it, I suggest you read it today.
