Initially, I label this idea as “App.net for School” since I work for an educational institution and we’re facing this log-in back here and there issue. As the time goes by, I think the idea can be used for any kind of institution.
The idea is simple: Why develop in-house expensive solution if there is cheaper Sass solution? The problem is in the login phase. Asking employee / students to remember dozens of credential will be a total headache. This will be more elegant way:
- Every individual under the organization, get this one “app.net for institution” account which is registered under their organization ID
- Institution subscribe to sass solution and register their organization ID
- Individual in the organization can directly login to the sass solution using their “app.net for institution” account in similar manner we log-in to third party app using Facebook / Twitter account.
A single and universally recognized identity under institution umbrella. It’ll be magical for corporate people, no?
