Persona is an offline room locking software package used by the Lowell campus that interfaces with RMS data and a Lenel feed (Student access ID card data) from the campus. The application housed on the UITS server (with a local SQL Server database) is connected to several network devices at dormitories on the Lowell campus. These devices are used by students to program their room key cards based on information from the feeder systems. Once programmed, the key cards will open the doors to their rooms for the period of time they are assigned to them.
UITS supports a hosted environment for the Persona Software, which includes server-side access and database support. Application troubleshooting and software assistance will be provided by the vendor.
