InfoCase Inc. (http://infocase.com) is offering two protective laptop cases that are ideal for students and educators who are always on the go. The patent-pending Endo series offers ultimate crush protection in a 14 oz. sleek, pressure-resistant sleeve design. The versatile, foam-constructed solution can be used as a carry-alone case or can be stashed in another bag or backpack. Each Endo case is also equipped with d-rings to accommodate accessories such as removable handles, a shoulder strap, and a removable accessory pouch. The patented Exo series of rugged carrying cases combines style with function to provide students with laptop protection wherever learning is taking place. This is because with the Exo, students can use the full functionality of their laptop while it's still inside the case, and simply zip up and go when class is over. The Exo comes in single, double, or no pocket models, and includes a shoulder strap. Academic pricing for the Endo series starts at $29.95, while pricing for the Exo series starts at $59.95.
inRESONANCE Inc. (http://www.inresonance.com) has recently announced a major upgrade of its full-featured admission and enrollment management solution. Portal 3.0, which features built-in HTML e-mail broadcast, manages the entire admission cycle from inquiry to decision, as well as enrollment and re-enrollment. It also tracks and reports on inquiries, applications, recommendations and transcripts, file reading, decisions, interviews, tours, visits, sources, and feeder schools. The optional Portal Web Services provide integrated Web capabilities, including online inquiries, applications, and decision notification. A key feature in Portal 3.0 is that e-mails, letters, labels, and reports are all merged and generated directly without needing to export to Excel, Word, or Crystal Reports. In addition, Portal 3.0 is an open solution, so reports and views can be customized, plus users don't have to know SQL. Pricing varies.
