Objectworld Customer Case Study: Norwood School

Norwood School is an independent, co-educational school for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Located in Bethesda, Maryland, Norwood prides itself on its commitment to enhance learning by using technology and advanced communications with its students, faculty and parents. Objectworld UC Server is changing the way Norwood faculty, students and even parents are communicating with each other.

The Challenge
The dynamic in today's schools, including Norwood, can be described as a fast paced and rapidly changing environment that requires multiple levels of communications to keep in touch. For example, different scenarios may require administrative staff and faculty to be off-site and access messages remotely utilizing Blackberry's, PDA's or other smart phones as a communication source. Meanwhile, various school events and activities rely more heavily on automated systems as a way to inform parents of essential information and key dates.

The problem in utilizing many different elements and levels of messaging is the need to streamline the communications process. There is a growing concern in our schools that faculty, students and parents need to be informed and provided with around-the-clock access to communications. Eliminating the possibility for a communication breakdown, fast and reliable information becomes a necessity.

Addressing this growing concern, Norwood began to examine the need for a centralized communications system, combining all forms – e-mail messages, voicemails and faxes - over one platform to serve its 520 students and 130 faculty members. Norwood was in need of a unified communications system that could better leverage its existing telecommunication systems and streamline the messaging process.
