Anthony Potts, CEOStudents want to navigate life on campus and figure things out the way they usually do: by going online and doing a quick search. In tandem, parents, teachers and staff also have the similar expectations for innovative tools that make it easier for them to navigate school programs or services including grades, school resources, curriculum programs and more. However, when it comes to harnessing campus activities and resources, many institutions still use cluttered portals for each service, with different login credentials, that mar the campus experience. That’s where rSmart comes into the picture. Based in Scottsdale, AZ, the company is dedicated to offering a next-generation campus portal that makes it easy to organize all of the web-based campus services in one mobile-friendly location and help users find campus services faster and easier than ever before.
Built for the cloud, rSmart’s state-of-the-art campus portal, OneCampus, helps colleges and universities streamline their web-based campus services and effortlessly access information such as grades, class schedules, emails, and more. Further, the customizable portal is empowered by single sign-on authentication service, enabling users to access institutional services, and applications. The Google-like search tool enables students, faculty, and staff to quickly locate and access services from any computer or mobile device, anytime, anywhere. In addition to the search, OneCampus dynamically serves up the user’s highest rated and most popular tasks. This helps students discover new services and proves most helpful when critical deadlines are near, including drop/add or class registration, for example. OneCampus also links to popular systems such as Student Information Systems, Learning Management Systems, financial, and support services that guide users to various services through a centralized point without affecting the underlying business units or processes. “OneCampus allows higher education to market more effectively and quickly expand their portal to foster student retention, increase enrollment, and help meet the ongoing needs of its students, faculty, and parents,” asserts Anthony Potts, a 17-year veteran of education technology organizations and CEO of rSmart.

Further, rSmart has demonstrated success by deploying OneCampus in various schools and districts across the country, serving nearly one million users at colleges and universities of all sizes, as of May 31, 2017.
Washington University in St. Louis (WashU), a OneCampus user, had a broad web landscape with almost every school, department, and target audience having a dedicated website. With a plethora of sources available, finding information and resources had become a great challenge for WashU constituents.

By leveraging OneCampus, WashU was able to provide it’s users with an easy-to-navigate, customizable next-generation portal. The system met all the requirements including search capabilities, filters, and single sign-on integration that enabled users to quickly find and access the services they need.
