PLANO, TX – August 19, 2020 – NTT DATA Services, a digital business and IT services leader, offers tools and services designed to support the new technology challenges colleges, universities and K-12 schools are facing.

For colleges and universities, NTT DATA’s Back to Campus solution supports safe reopening through contact tracing, daily health self-assessments, test scheduling and tracing, secure test results, thermal sensor checks, and mask and social distance compliance.
