Solution Development

Custom web development is one of ESS’ main services. We evaluate student and faculty needs through goal and process analyses to develop solutions for many departments and to inform technology purchases.

If you are interested in custom application development or would like ESS to help your organization create a solution for an issue, please fill out a Student Affairs technology suppport request (opens in a new tab).

Our applications are also available as open-source software. Below is a list of some the software that we have written along with several third-party applications for which we provide support:


Check-in allows clients to check in for appointments, identify why they are visiting, and indicate if they are having an emergency. This system streamlines routing for the Counseling Center and provides visitation metrics.

It enforces state authorization rules, generates and stores internship contracts, allows for emergency contact information look up, and allows reporting on previous internships.
