CINCINNATI – Keeping with its mission of accelerating how schools embrace web technology to improve communication, Campus Suite announces it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) EdStart program. The Campus Suite and AWS EdStart collaboration underscores the company's commitment to innovative, secure, and scalable website solutions for schools.

AWS EdStart is the educational technology (EdTech) startup accelerator helping companies like Cincinnati-based Campus Suite build and enhance management solutions for schools using the AWS cloud through access to its array of services and tools.

Campus Suite, providing websites for schools and school districts since 2000, is on an aggressive track of innovation.

Participation in the AWS EdStart program enables Campus Suite to tap the world’s leading authority on cloud-based technologies and apply the utmost in security, scalability and product development for Campus Suite and it’s K-12 customers.

“This relationship brings the training and support of AWS to scale and improve our platform,” said Eric Fulkert, CEO of Campus Suite. “Being accepted shows that Amazon believes as strongly in our platform and future as we do.”

Campus Suite, providing websites for schools and school districts since 2000, is on an aggressive track of innovation, providing the K12 and higher ed markets with a web communication platform that transcends a content management system and incorporates expandable add-ons like notification systems and mobile apps. The company is rolling out features that make it easier for school administrators to reach parents more effectively in more ways.

“We want to use our association with the EdStart program to help support our vision of helping parents help improve education outcomes through better engagement,” said Fulkert.

The program, which includes a designated AWS mentor assigned to work closely with Campus Suite managers, utilizes promotional credits that the Campus Suite development team will use to expand and elevate its communication platform to an even ‘friendlier’ plane utilizing voice, intelligent assistants and other AI technology. In addition to product development assistance around media, language and voice services, the company initially plans to engage AWS for technical issues, for example, relating to load balancing and firewall protection.

Campus Suite provides a cloud-based communications platform featuring ADA-compliant and fully accessible content management systems, text and voice notification systems, and mobile apps to K12 school districts, private and charter schools, and community and small colleges. The Campus Suite school communication cloud provides an agile and expandable platform in one seamless system that enables schools to add features and functionality to keep pace with technology and improve engagement.
