Announcing Launch of RenWeb Portal at 2013 Power Conference
Conference Attendees Can Now Register for 8 Hours of RenWeb Portal Training
RenWeb is pleased to announce that the official launch of RenWeb Portal will occur at the 2013 RenWeb Power Conference, to be held July 9-11, 2013 in Dallas, TX.
RenWeb Portal is a browser-based solution that works on both PCs and Macs. It will replace RenWeb’s Desktop application for accessing RenWeb’s Administrative features. That means you will not need to download and maintain the most current version of RenWeb on your machine. You will receive all updates automatically when you simply log in through your browser. Supported browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome for PCs, and Firefox and Safari for Macs.
It also means Mac users will no longer need Parallels or VMware to access RenWeb since they can access RenWeb Portal directly from the browser on their Mac.
Please note that schools can migrate to RenWeb Portal on their own timeline. Once the development for Admissions, Accounting and Scheduling are completed in Portal, we will announce a timeline for migrating schools off of RenWeb Desktop. That is expected to occur in 2015. In the meantime, schools can start using Portal immediately after the Power Conference or wait until our migration timeline is announced.
