Announcing PeopleAdmin’s 2021-2022 Customer Advisory Board

Austin, TX – July 19, 2021 – PeopleAdmin, the leading provider of talent management solutions for higher education, today announced the 2021-2022 Customer Advisory Board (CAB), made up of human resources leaders from across the higher education space.

The CAB will serve as a strategic advisory for PeopleAdmin, representing customers’ voices and interests, helping to inform the product roadmap for future updates, and provide strategic insight to the PeopleAdmin team.

“This group of power users offer invaluable insights that can help shape and prioritize our development plans,” said Rishi Rana, General Manager of PeopleAdmin. “Our goal is to learn from our customers, and continue to develop the solutions that meet the needs of HigherEd HR. We also hope the CAB members in turn are able to connect with their peers, get more out of PeopleAdmin with direct access to leadership, and the opportunity to learn from relevant thought-leadership content.”

Board members gathered to kick off the 2021-2022 year with PeopleAdmin executives to discuss the company’s vision and roadmap. Members took the opportunity to offer insights and provide suggestions for future innovations that focus on the needs of HigherEd HR. PeopleAdmin’s CAB will meet on a quarterly basis.

“With so much change in the HigherEd space, it is increasingly important to foster meaningful conversations with customers,” said Rana. “The CAB members’ boots-on-the-ground perspective will help us to continue to build the only hire-to-retire solution built exclusively for the needs of HigherEd.”
