The Herveys: Travis, Amanda and daughter Ada

Travis Hervey ’06, a Programmer Analyst at his alma mater, picked up a third straight award at the annual Jenzabar user conference (JAM 2011) recently. This year at the National Association of CX Users (NACU) conference in Nashville, he took first place in the Utilities category. And, once again his creations are saving Georgetown College time and money!

Recognized for its utility of function and creativity of design, his winning Proxy Login Portlet program allows those responsible for administering portal systems to log in as another user without having to ask for a user’s credentials. “This aids in trouble-shooting issues and in guiding users through a process on the portal,” said Associate Vice President Grover Hibberd, who oversees the College’s Information Technology Services. “The program saves portal administrators time and minimizes the amount of lost time for users by reducing the time required to solve their issue.”

In 2010, Travis took second place for his Account Statement Portlet.  His entry in the JICS Category (main Jenzabar portal) is a program that displays a student’s account statement and balance within the portal.

In 2009, he captured first place for his entry in the Student Category that made improvements within the student section of the portal.  His program allows Registrar office staff to generate a .pdf of transcripts that are to be emailed.

Georgetown College is a Jenzabar CX (Unix/Linux) partner. Jenzabar is a leading provider of software and strategies for Unix/Linux and Windows platform solutions for over 700 higher educational institutions worldwide.

Travis, who majored in Information Systems here, is married to GC graduate Amanda Griffith Hervey ’08, currently a columnist with Kentucky Monthly magazine. They have a four-month-old daughter, Ada.
