KEYSORT - AN AID TO UNIVERSITY HOUSING.
VAN VLIET, ROBERT
THE EFFICIENCY OF ADMINISTERING OFF-CAMPUS HOUSING AND UNIVERSITY-OWNED APARTMENTS WAS GREATLY INCREASED WITH THE USE OF KEYSORT. THE KEYSORT PRINCIPLE IS DESCRIBED, AND THE PROCEDURES INVOLVED IN RENTAL LISTINGS AND APARTMENT APPLICATIONS ARE DETAILED. KEYSORT HAS THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES--(1) IT PROVIDES THE RIGHT INFORMATION TO THE RIGHT CLIENTS IN A MATTER OF SECONDS, (2) IT REQUIRES ONLY A SMALL STAFF TO SERVE A LARGER NUMBER OF CLIENTS, (3) IT FULFILLS THE SAME FUNCTION AS MORE COMPLEX DATA PROCESSING EQUIPMENT AT A MODEST INITIAL COST, (4) IT ELIMINATES ROUTINE ADMINISTRATIVE WORK, (5) IT PROVIDES A PERMANENT RECORD OF EVENTS AND SUBSEQUENT ACTIONS, AND (6) IT ALLOWS STATISTICAL DATA TO BE EASILY OBTAINED AND USED.
