GoCampus said it took Epicentric's portal server over other servers for its customization, rapid deployment and flexibility to deliver signature Internet-based services to academic institutions. Epicentric's portal server enables businesses to control hosting, branding and design.
GoCampus goal is to help colleges and universities to customize their Web sites and improve communications between students, faculty, parents and alumni by streamlining campus news, events and instructional forums. GoCampus said it hopes to capitalize on the expectations of consumers to wire efficient portal systems in universities across the country.
"We based the GoCampus Community Hub on Epicentric's open and flexible Web architecture because we wanted to provide each college and university with an easy way to customize our hub to their campus brand and campus requirements," said Burt Cummings, chief executive officer of GoCampus.
GoCampus has developed a personalized "information dashboard" that can be used to help navigate through modules which each individual selects and customizes to best fit their needs. This tool is presented through a campus's Web site and under the campus's brand, but is hosted by GoCampus. Modules may include tools such as campus calendar, campus news, national news, department news, etc.
