OVERVIEW: Company Portal

What is the Company Portal App

The Company Portal app is a part of Microsoft Intune.  Intune is cloud hosted and provides access to local installs of Clemson licensed software without the need for VPN.  Some software may still require VPN to connect to the license server.

What happened to CCIT Software Center

Clemson University is transitioning from CCIT Software Center to Company Portal for software delivery to Windows devices.  Company Portal provides a much better user experience for personal devices.  It installs in minutes and doesn't require VPN to install or use.  We also have additional deployment options based on user group membership.

How to get the Company Portal App?

Student/Employee Personal Windows Devices

Student personal devices that wish to install software on their own using the Company Portal app.

Setup instructions can be found at HOWTO: Register Device with Clemson University or HOWTO: Install Company Portal - Windows 10

Students with Windows 10 Home

A lot of Clemson software including Company Portal are not compatible with Windows 10 Home.  All students are entitled to a free upgrade of Windows Home to Windows Education.  Company Portal will automatically upgrade your device after install.  Unfortunately, there are no prompts for this so a few minutes after installing Company Portal you will need to manually reboot.  You can check the version of Windows in Settings -> System -> About under Windows specifications.

University Owned Windows Devices

University owned devices setup by IT now have Company Portal installed by default and mostly replace CCIT Software Center for on-demand software needs.
