Refreshed bio management software empowers faculty to promote their research

by

With the launch of an all-new version of FacultyStorm, the leading web-based software for managing faculty biographic information, professors have even more powerful tools for promoting themselves and their research.

RainStorm re-engineered FacultyStorm from the ground-up to be simpler, faster, and easier to use. Research into user habits and feedback from the hundreds of faculty who use the tool drove this significant upgrade to the software.

Originally built for a university department that wanted an easy way for its faculty to manage their own profiles online, today FacultyStorm is a fully-featured web-based system used by faculty to promote and easily maintain their biographic info, research, and publications and add photos, CVs, links, text and graphics.

FacultyStorm also makes it easy for academic departments- and entire colleges- to enhance their websites with automated, fully-integrated faculty directories featuring images, search, full bios, and an increasingly-popular “find a mentor” tool designed to attract more qualified students.

“FacultyStorm 2 is a great step forward for those using our software- we’ve made it even easier for busy faculty members to keep their online identities updated,” said Brian Rahill, CEO of RainStorm.
