Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 09, 2016
Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT, has selected OneCampus from rSmart to provide students, faculty, and staff a cutting edge tool that makes finding and accessing campus services and information, from any device, more intuitive. OneCampus will allow the Fairfield University community to easily connect to dozens of resources such as student services, course information, LMS and even laundry machine statuses, all in an online marketplace format.

Founded in 1942, Fairfield University has awarded more than 45,000 degrees, and has developed a reputation for educational excellence both regionally and nationally.
Fairfield University was in need of a more modern approach to replace their legacy CampusEAI portal. They sought a solution that would fit within their planned improvements and technology goals that included single sign-on for campus applications, scalability through peak times (such as student registration), and a streamlined implementation that required minimal resources but strong customer support and guidance. The convenient search bar in OneCampus will also benefit Fairfield and allow users a painless way to access and search more content. OneCampus from rSmart was selected for its ability to fit these needs and for the many innovative features that appeal to their community which includes student, parent, and employees. It was also important to Fairfield University that OneCampus integrate with Banner®, their ERP system.
