Chicago, Illinois, March 21st, 2017 - Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCU), located in Kansas City, Missouri, deploys QuickLaunch Single Sign-On for seamless integration with PowerCampus®, Blackboard® and Microsoft® Office 365.
Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCU) is the 10th largest medical school in the United States, the largest in Missouri and one of the oldest osteopathic medical schools in the country. It leads by example of being the 2nd largest provider of physicians in Missouri and Kansas, with over 1,100+ enrolled students on the College of Osteopathic Medicine and College of Biosciences and 7,100 practicing alumni.
KCU is known for being a leader in osteopathic medical education, making sure to offer the students with a learning environment which emphasizes on academic excellence and countless opportunities for hands-on learning. The University provides several applications to the students including, PowerCampus®, Blackboard®, Exchange® and Microsoft® Office 365, KCU® 360, NetPartner®, Atomic Learning®, Academic Work®, Workday® and many more. Although these platforms create an easy learning environment for the students, they still come with multiple login username and passwords. This is exactly what QuickLaunch helped KCU with while offering Single Sign-On based on Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) protocol, making QuickLaunch SSO effortlessly integrate with the university’s applications.
Seth Vermillion, Network Engineer at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, says, “The QuickLaunch SSO v4 product has been instrumental in centralizing various applications for our University. Before QuickLaunch, our user community had multiple URL’s and credentials to remember, but now they have the convenience of using a single username and password in one location. Our students, faculty and staff are much happier these days! It’s been a pleasure working with the QuickLaunch team".
QuickLaunch is a cloud-based, self-service Identity as a Service (IDaaS) application integration platform that helps institutions to integrate their apps irrespective of their integration protocol e.g. LDAP integrated apps, secure web authentication, CAS/SAML/OAUTH enabled apps.
