Apogee Announces Expansion of Its Managed Campus Services Portfolio

AUSTIN, Texas (Oct. 17, 2022) — Demonstrating its ongoing leadership as a highly valued and trusted strategic technology services partner to higher education, Apogee today announced the expansion of its Managed Campus services portfolio with the addition of new Managed IT Services and Professional Services. These new leading-edge services enable colleges and universities to partner with Apogee to free in-house teams from IT operational headaches so they can pursue strategic innovation and digital transformation initiatives. The expanded portfolio unlocks time and delivers peace of mind by relieving institutions from the ongoing struggle of finding, hiring, and retaining scarce IT talent, and by providing a higher ed-friendly and predictable OPEX funding model.

Recognized as a leader and expert in managed networks at scale for both residence halls (ResNet) and administrative and academic networks, Apogee today expands its menu of Managed Campus technology services with:

“Campus leaders are facing extreme pressure to deliver high educational ROI (return on investment) and exceptional student experiences at a time when finding, hiring, and retaining IT talent is challenging. Apogee is excited to expand our Managed Campus portfolio with nine new innovative and leading-edge managed technology services designed specifically for higher education,” said Scott Drossos, Apogee chief executive officer. “By partnering with Apogee, colleges and universities can offload IT operational challenges to an expert, rapidly scale IT to address emerging needs, and eliminate annual budgeting pain. Apogee helps put institutions on a path to IT efficiency, unleashing their ability to deliver innovations and programs that give them a competitive edge in student experience, education, research, and community outcomes.”

Located in Saint Joseph, Mo., Missouri Western State University (MWSU) has a student enrollment of 3500+. In 2021, MWSU faced daunting challenges: financial exigency, several new leadership transitions, and an aging technological infrastructure. Darrell Morrison, MWSU chief financial officer, sought Apogee CIO Advisory Services to provide strategic planning prowess, uncover IT problems, and complete numerous institution-wide IT projects. Apogee then ensured a successful implementation of Apogee ResNet and Managed Campus Services while shepherding the campus through the process of hiring a permanent Chief Information Officer.

“The days of break/fix IT and silos are over,” said Mr. Morrison. “Working with Apogee means the MWSU IT team can focus and collaborate on the projects that will drive transformation across the entire campus. Apogee is particularly adept at understanding the big technology picture on campus while also homing in on the most urgent IT priorities that need to be addressed. And they do this without pressure or trying to sell us more than we need. I am thrilled to see Apogee expand its Managed Campus portfolio and look forward to a continued long and productive partnership.”

Apogee has launched a new website with the expansion of the Managed Campus portfolio to help higher education leaders quickly access information about all Apogee managed technology services.
