When the University of California, San Diego launched its largest investment in tech in 2018, they planned to future proof their business processes and systems. Unexpectedly, it also prepared them to handle a global pandemic that changed every norm for the campus.

And, for the times students and staff are on campus, a contact tracing application was essential for their safety.
