Live Help Initiative Expanded for Higher Ed

Software on demand provider Velaro is ramping up its Academic Live Help Initiative by making its services available to the higher ed community as a whole. The company currently provides live help services to a number of universities.

Velaro provides live chat and live help services in support of admissions, library services, and other functions.
