Improving The Student Learning Experience at Agder University Norway

Following rapid growth in the US university sector, Software2 boasts clients in Belgium, Netherlands, South Africa, the UK and now Norway. 

Leading Norwegian university, Agder has chosen Software2 to help improve the student learning experience by delivering IT applications to staff and students using AppsAnywhere and virtualization.

Agder University (UiA), a leading university in southern Norway, has chosen Software2 to improve the student learning experience and with it aims to provide the following benefits:

  • Deliver apps to the desktop quickly and efficiently
  • Reduce logon times and  IT administration
  • Improve timetabling and asset management
  • Reduce software license costs
  • Easily support applications on campus and BYOD
  • Focus on proactive student support
  • Remove the need for multiple and/or large desktop images

UiA has 670 academic staff and 430 administrative staff, who support a student community of over 10,000, split across two geographic areas. UiA is known for a good teaching environment with close proximity to students and a well-developed collaboration with regional enterprises.

We welcome Agder University to the Software2 community of over 60 Further Education institutions and look forward to forming a partnership built on our understanding and commitment to the education sector.

We’ve seen lots of interest for application virtualization in Sweden, Denmark and Norway and we're certainly making our presence felt as a much more cost effective alternative to VDI. Our aim is to ensure Agder University become a leading light for the region and can reap the benefits seen by our other university clients.
