San Ramon, CA, March 17 - GreyHeller, the global leader in Mobile and Security technology and a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced that Syracuse University has launched its new mobile application, Syracuse University Mobile, with GreyHeller's PeopleMobile® mobile platform. PeopleMobile® powers mobile access to Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus Solutions application from any smartphone or tablet.
The Syracuse University Mobile application includes:
MySlice Student Services Modules

- Class details available for each result: start/end dates, days, class location and times, and all dates and deadlines (financial drop, academic drop, class add, withdrawal)
- SU News feed
- Campus Maps (Google)
- SU Events Calendar
- SU Directory
- Social Media
- Users can view and share items from these modules from within the app
- Aggregates the main SU Twitter and Facebook accounts
- SU YouTube channel available in Video module
- Photos module uses SU Instagram feed
According to Sam Scozzafava, interim Chief Information Officer and VP ITS, "with a rich mix of University information and personal services data, the app will help users engage sooner and easier with the institution and its faculty, staff and students. We will continue to engage students to identify and implement enhancements to ensure it is serving their needs and providing them with the necessary tools and information to help them be successful in their academic career."
The next version will include student access to their exam schedules and three Faculty Service Modules - My Schedule, Class Roster and Grade Roster.
Syracuse University students have found the app to be a valuable tool. From a recent article in the Syracuse University online news:
Austin Rhoads, Class of '17, who is majoring in information management and technology, agrees. "The class search is my favorite feature. It is convenient as I begin to search for classes for next semester and doing it through the PC is bulky. One other feature that I really like is the map. Many new students have no idea where a specific building is, let alone where to find out how to get there."
Justin Baumann, Class of '16, a political science major said, "As a student who is constantly moving between different buildings on campus, the convenience of easily checking my phone for my class schedule, or looking up an email address on the directory, is incredibly useful. This is just the beginning of an important tool that SU students will use for years to come."
GreyHeller and Syracuse University began working together on this application in September, 2014.
