Zoom Now Intrinsic to UF Business

UF staff member using Zoom to connect to a meeting

In the 2017-2018 Contributions Report, Vice President and CIO Elias Eldayrie stated that, “In FY19, UFIT will deploy Zoom as an enterprise-wide service, creating efficiencies by eliminating the need for individual unit licenses or staff support resources across campus.”

The Zoom Pro enterprise-wide license was enabled in spring 2019, incorporating single sign-on for all users and a PHI environment for UF Health. While still a relatively new service for UF, the wide-reaching adoption of Zoom underscores its ease of use and value to our community. Usage numbers for June 2018 – May 2019 show that the UF community has:

Zoom’d to and from a total of 138 countries.
Held 52,598 meetings during this time.
Counted 236,576 overall participants in those meetings.

From recruiting international students and discussing research findings with colleagues overseas to connecting staff from locations around Gainesville, Zoom has become a go-to service for UF. Anyone with questions about getting started using Zoom can view instructions here: https://ufl.zoom.us/.
