The UTSA community is invited to join the UTSA Office of Information Technology (OIT) in partnership with the Campus Technology Store and Dell on board the Destination Dell Technology Tour bus near the Sombrilla Plaza on the UTSA Main Campus on Thursday, October 19th from 11:00 a.m. –2:00 p.m.

The tour bus will provide students, faculty and staff an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with some of the latest technologies designed to increase collaboration and productivity.

Destination Dell is an RV decked out with the Austin skyline that is traveling to 40 cities on the West Coast. UTSA is the only site in San Antonio that has been approved for Destination Dell, which has rolled into other institutions and companies across the U.S. such as the University of Texas at Austin, Rutgers University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

“I am truly excited that UTSA has been selected as the San Antonio site for Destination Dell,” said Brent League, director of the Research Computing Support Group. “Dell is not just a company we purchase computer equipment from, they are a partner with UTSA and this is just one example of how their partnership brings value to UTSA.”

In an effort to help prepare the UTSA community for the ever-changing workforce, OIT entered into this partnership to offer Roadrunners a first-hand look into how technologies will help shape the workplace of the future.

Some of the Dell products that will be displayed inside the interactive tour bus include the latest laptops, desktops, monitors with touchscreen displays, and workstations from the Precision line.

In addition, the tour bus will showcase a mobile conference room equipped with Intel Unite, an innovative software designed to transform meetings. Through this software, users can wirelessly present information, share screens and annotate during meetings to better foster collaboration.

Staff from several OIT areas including StudentConnect, the Research Computing Support Group and the Customer Relations, Communications and Training team will be available, along with a team of Dell experts, to engage attendees in discussion about how these products will help transform the future workplace.

In addition, staff from OIT and the Campus Technology Store will set up information tables to increase the UTSA community’s awareness of the products and services available to foster success and to provide them with complimentary gear.

“Having an opportunity to actually get our hands on Dell products is a huge benefit to the UTSA community,” said Linda Dunn, director of Student Computing Services. “Dell is a key player in the market, and seeing what products are accessible and having Dell on hand to answer questions is a great way to decide if Dell’s offering is right for what the UTSA community may be looking for.”
