Meet Delta Dog
Every Journey Needs a Guide
Delta Dog will guide us through our ctcLink project, acting as our trustworthy companion as we prepare for and move to a new software system.
With the implementation of ctcLink, our campus will experience an unprecedented change.
Not only will the conversion affect every employee and student on campus, but it will change the way we do our business processes. It’s not simply a matter of adapting to new software, but also about adapting to the change in how we work.
We like to think of this change as a journey from the current state to the future state.
Why a Dog?
While Delta Dog is fictional, she represents real-life characteristics we find in our furry friends:
Loyalty: Dogs are known as “man’s best friend.” They stick with you. We want Delta Dog to represent that people are not alone on this journey through change. We are here to help.
Companionship: Some breeds are used as seeing-eye dogs and assistants for the differently abled. Dogs accompany people on their journey through life, and, in unique cases, save lives (Lassie!). Dog lovers in general enjoy taking their dogs on short journeys, too, such as walks, runs, and hikes. This reminds us, too, that we have many different types of people of differing abilities who will need to be trained on ctcLink.
Trustworthiness: Some breeds point the way, while others help law enforcement track a lead. We trust dogs to help us in any number of ways, as noted earlier.
Optimism: Dogs have a carefree, look-on-the-bright-side attitude. They see the best in people and situations and provide a comforting, reassuring presence, which will be a welcome relief from ctcLink technology, since technology itself can seem intimidating and cold.
Why Call Her Delta?
The Greek letter Delta looks like a triangle. Delta denotes change. You’ll see that Delta Dog’s head is shaped like a triangle. She’s also wearing a triangular-shaped dog collar.
And, Delta is a short word beginning with a “d,” making it an alliterative and easy-to-remember name.
Delta Dog provides unique branding for ctcLink messaging, helping it stand apart from other campus projects and injecting some whimsy as we work together on our journey through change.
