OneSpring was welcomed with open arms to Vancouver, BC this week at the NAFSA (Association of International Educators) Conference. The annual NAFSA conferences attract attendees from educational institutions around the world.
OneSpring’s clients, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and the Department of State, presented numerous demonstrations of their new SEVIS II product to thousands of onlookers at the conference. How was that possible? Visualization!
The power of showing end users a high-fidelity visualized model of SEVIS II reaped numerous rewards this week at NAFSA. The visualization increased confidence in the user community that SEVP and the Department of State understand their needs, are conducting user-centric design, and will deploy a system that will be an asset to their organizations. The attendees in each NAFSA session enjoyed seeing the preview of SEVIS II, providing feedback on feature functionality they would like to see incorporated in SEVIS II.
Though development of the final SEVIS II system is quite a way off, SEVP and the Department of State look forward to leveraging the visualization in future training and outreach initiatives in the interim.
