We partnered with SADA Systems to provide expertise in systems implementation – integrating our on-site authentication system to the suite of Google applications.
Because of our relationship with SADA Systems we were able to use their custom-made tools to allow students to ‘self-migrate’ to the new ToreroMail (powered by Google). Leveraging the Google IMAP migration tool also allowed us to move e-mail and account authentication for as many as 5180 accounts in one week.
The student experience was near seamless and our students never missed one incoming e-mail. After migrating over 13,530 student e-mail accounts to ToreroMail (powered by Google) we have received less than 130 calls into the ITS helpdesk (i.e. less than 0.1% of our client’s ever had issues). At the University of San Diego we consider this a major success! We are grateful to have been able to partner with such a competent team at SADA Systems, Nicky Parseghian and Michael Higby were our go to guys every step of the way and always took our requests seriously and provided a great level of service.
To date, the University of San Diego has over 15,300 student who have “e-mail for life” on the ToreroMail offering, powered by Google Apps.
