We’d like to thank all of our clients for making this the best year in Terra Dotta’s history.

As our user base has continued to grow, we’ve worked hard to support it. In addition to doubling our support staff this year, we’ve opened a new office in Hickory, NC under the lead of company CEO Brandon Lee to work in tandem with our Chapel Hill, NC office under CTO Garrett Christian.

All of this has been done to guarantee that we continue to deliver on our mission to offer the very best products and services in higher education software. This mission is not possible without the hard work of all of our partners, steering committees, and clients who work with us on a daily basis to find ways to improve Terra Dotta software.

We look forward to continuing to work and grow with you in 2015 and the years to come.

Institutions can use the IIE Open Doors data to look more broadly at experiences of other colleges and universities within their region as well as from a national perspective. As with other rankings data, the story is always more complicated than just the number or percentage of participants by institution.

Kendall Frye began working for Terra Dotta in July 2014 as a Client Support Specialist. She works as a first responder to client support cases and spends time working with clients to develop the content and manage the data on their sites.

Prior to joining Terra Dotta, Kendall worked for a robotics education company teaching school-age children to build and program robots. She graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne University with a B.A. in psychology.

When not working with clients, Kendall enjoys reading and spending time with her family. She hopes to one day visit all 50 states..

Kendall noted that her favorite aspect of working at Terra Dotta is being able to work as an administrator because “it gives me the opportunity to work closely with our clients and learn about the creative ways they use the software.”

Terra Dotta’s own explorer, the document center. We've all used it and we know we store all type of files and documents in it, but let’s review the ways we can effectively use the document center to make our everyday tasks more simple and efficient. From the basic functionality to ways we can manage all the content we have available so that all staff members have a pain free experience while searching or adding something new to our site.
