Personalized Content Delivery, Handheld Sync, Secure Transport, Group Portal, Group Maker, and Course Consolidator Extend Functionality of Campus Pipeline™ Web Platform
SALT LAKE CITY - August 20, 2001 - Campus Pipeline, Inc. reinforced its position today as the top integration software developer for higher education with the announcement of six new products that will expand the functionality and customization capabilities of its Campus Pipeline™ Web platform.
The Campus Pipeline Web platform serves as a foundation for the digital campus, unifying academics, administration and community life into a central network of people and services. The Web platform integrates seamlessly with SCT Banner® and SCT Plus™ student information systems, and uses open technology standards that allow integration with an institution's existing information system and its choice of Web applications. The Web platform also includes enterprise Internet infrastructure and Web applications from iPlanet.
"Campus Pipeline offers the most robust and extensive Web platform in higher education," said Tom Lewis, chairman and chief executive officer of Campus Pipeline. "We are offering schools unmatched flexibility with the key technology components that make a Web platform - a portal, an integrated infrastructure platform, and integrated Web applications. The openness and integration capabilities are exactly what institutions of higher education have asked for so they may take advantage of new products such as those we're announcing today, and make their own choices regarding the systems and applications that best serve their constituents."
The six new products will be bundled and sold as two separate packages. Line Extension Product Package Number One includes:
Handheld Sync 1.0 - This product will allow information within the Campus Pipeline system to be synchronized with the increasingly pervasive handheld devices running on Palm™ or Windows® CE operating systems. The first application to be synchronized will be the Campus Pipeline calendar.
Campus Pipeline partner institutions also have access to customizable consulting, service and training offerings. Each is designed to support the entire scope of a Campus Pipeline Web platform implementation, from assessing campus readiness and project planning to installation and rollout, leveraging the efficiencies that predictably occur with the campus Pipeline
Web platform. Premium service bundles include process and organizational design, development and integration of specialized technologies, training for students, faculty, and staff, and campus-wide communication support.
The Campus Pipeline Web platform is available today, and is being used by more than 100 institutions to support their entire campus enterprise. The two new Line Extension Product Packages are scheduled for availability by the end of 2001. For more information call 801.257.4161 or visit www.campuspipeline.com.
