No. 1 Web-Based School Management Software Provider Partners with Industry Leader in Website Development and Content Management to Maximize Communication and Information Sharing
Integration Enables Single Login Experience and RenWeb Data Exchanges with Branded Websites and Portals Designed and Hosted by finalsite
September 18, 2009 - RenWeb, the No. 1 web-based school management software, and finalsite, the industry leader in school website development and content management, today formally announced their completion of real-time data integration.
The partnership allows RenWeb and finalsite customers to access secure areas in finalsite and RenWeb’s secure ParentsWeb through a single login, while enabling calendar items, announcements, and other information posted on RenWeb’s secure ParentsWeb to be dynamically shared and posted on school websites hosted by finalsite.*
By purchasing finalsite’s design and content management services in conjunction with RenWeb, schools will be able to easily manage their branded websites on an ongoing basis, directly updating from RenWeb information such as profile data, relationships, classes, announcements, calendar items and more.
“The RenWeb/finalsite integration is an incredible time-saver for our staff. I was amazed at their powerful combination of services. RenWeb and finalsite provide a complete communications and data management solution," says Terry Gourley, Marketing and Development Director at Grace Brethren Schools. Gourley adds, “The single login capability is AWESOME, saving my team a lot of work in dual username and password creation, data uploads, and more. We have created a top-quality experience for our constituents using the RenWeb/finalsite partnership to its fullest.”
Brad Lee, CEO of RenWeb, stated, “Through this partnership, which integrates RenWeb’s features and information with finalsite’s industry-leading website development and content management capabilities, our companies can provide schools best-in-class solutions for managing and displaying their school information and connecting with parents through their own branded websites.”
Lee continued, “Our customers often ask if they can display their RenWeb ParentsWeb information in a branded environment that looks like the external websites developed by the schools. That is the direction in which we are headed through our partnership with finalsite, which will enable schools to develop and manage their external websites and their internal secure Parent and Student Portals in one place, providing families a seamless, branded experience across the schools’ entire web presence.”
“Through the ongoing development of our integration, data will flow between RenWeb and finalsite’s content management system and portals in real-time, changing the way schools manage their data integration,” explained Jon Moser, President and Founder of finalsite. “Finalsite will be able to host integrated websites that will display both external public information and secure RenWeb academic data and information, providing schools a consistent, branded look and feel across the entire website with one single login experience.
“Our finalsite team and customers are very excited about this new opportunity”, continued Moser. “We believe that by having a premier organization like RenWeb as a partner, both finalsite and RenWeb will share a growing client base together. With our dedication to serving the global school market, we feel that RenWeb is a key piece to the puzzle. ”
