Mobile device usage and as a result, mobile app usage, has exploded over the last few years with thousands of new apps and billions of downloads. Universities are just beginning to participate in the mobile space: very few institutions have designated funding sources for research-focused or research-derived mobile app development programs.
The UNH Office for Research Partnerships and Commercialization (ORPC) recently traveled to Orlando, Florida for the 60th Annual Meeting of the Campus Safety Health and Environmental Management Association (CSHEMA) to promote our homegrown chemical inventory management system UNHCEMS®.
UNHCEMS® is UNH’s self-developed barcode-based software system to record and manage information about the quantity, location and properties of chemicals, biological agents, radioactive materials, and hazardous wastes throughout campus.
After a recent survey of UNHCEMS® software users at other institutions and the overwhelmingly positive feedback received, UNH hit the road to encourage other colleges and universities to implement our system.
