Lincoln approached Aluminati with the requirement of providing a service that enabled their alumni to contact each other without having to go through the Alumni Office each time. This idea soon evolved into the Lincoln Online Directory, an implementation of the Aluminati “ALUMINATE” online portal.
Lincoln alumni are now able to log in to the service to connect and directly message other alumni whilst maintaining control of their data through privacy controls. The service allows alumni to search via various fields, and provides easy-to-use network navigation by year group and profession/industry listings to encourage networking.
Lincoln has commissioned a significant upgrade to the system to map the college’s entire alumni population across the world, allowing alumni to view fellow alumni by country and city. This is expected to encourage increased communication amongst travelling alumni and those conducting business on the international stage.
