Campus Suite is not only turning customers’ heads with its new web communications platform, it’s garnering some recognition from the local business community. Campus Suite was an honoree at the 2018 Emerging Business Award program recognizing Cincinnati-area businesses on the move.
The award was presented to Campus Suite CEO Eric Fulkert at an April luncheon honoring the winners of the annual award.
“We’ve got some great momentum going at Campus Suite,” said Fulkert, “and this award is a tribute to the team we’ve been fortunate enough to build at Campus Suite. This reflects the culmination of a lot of hard work in committing to help schools better communicate using the web technologies that we’re developing. We're delivering solutions that are customer-driven, and service that is customer focused.”
The Emerging Business Award was presented on the heels of the company’s recent launch of a new content management system (CMS) platform that enables schools and school districts to manage their websites, voice, text, email and social media messaging and notifications from one single platform.
Campus Suite also embarked on a nationwide campaign to educate school administrators about the importance of website accessibility for people with disabilities. The company recently launched its School Website Accessibility Education Center that contains free resources to helps schools build websites that are ADA-compliant and fully accessible.
“We’re committed to helping schools reach their entire school community, and being able to accommodate any student, staff, or community member who may have a disability,” said Fulkert. “We’re helping schools fix the accessibility issues on their sites and helping them build ADA-compliant websites.”
