Strategic Relationship between iModules and LinkedIn® Launches
More than 400 clients of iModules Software will celebrate the launch of the strategic relationship of iModules and LinkedIn at the iModules user conference held at the Westin Crown Center on July 22 - 25, 2012. John Hill, Higher Education Evangelist at LinkedIn, will be the keynote speaker at the conference on Tuesday, July 24.
The strategic relationship between iModules and LinkedIn will provide clients of iModules the opportunity to connect their iModules systems to LinkedIn through a unique integration. “LinkedIn is where people actively connect to update their latest professional positions, projects, interests, and contact information. This integration with iModules will enable institutions to easily collect the most up-to-date profile data available and update their databases,” explains Hill. It will also allow users to log in to iModules-powered websites with their LinkedIn credentials, as well as integrate an institution’s official LinkedIn group with iModules systems. This functionality will be available to iModules’ clients in September 2012.
“This strategic relationship continues to define our market leadership by enabling us to bring this powerful, unique offering to the higher education industry,” explains Fred Weiss, President at iModules Software. “Teaming up with LinkedIn will ensure our clients are using the most accurate data to drive relevant, targeted communications. Also, this integration is a significant benefit to career services and business networking.”
