Moovweb Launches Responsive Delivery Mobile Platform for Educational Institutions

Colleges and Universities Can Now Leverage Existing Web Infrastructure to Unify and Accelerate Delivery of Responsive Mobile Sites and Hybrid Apps at Lower Cost

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - September 25, 2013) - Moovweb today announced special packaging and pricing of its cloud-based mobile responsive delivery platform that will make it faster and easier for colleges and universities to deliver great mobile experiences to students, faculty and alumni. For qualified institutions, Moovweb is offering a 40% pricing discount for its enterprise package. In addition, Moovweb is creating templates for common higher education mobile use cases like student portals, bookstore mobile commerce and alumni portals that are designed to make it easier for educational IT organizations to create their own mobile experiences.

"The best and brightest educational institutions are embracing mobile in a big way," stated Mitch Bishop, CMO for Moovweb. "Great mobile experiences can be a powerful recruiting tool, a channel for better alumni engagement and a vehicle for lowering overall delivery cost. For the first time, universities and colleges can now unify their web and mobile strategy by fully leveraging existing infrastructure."

According to a 2013 Educause study, 70% of educational institutions have a BYOE (bring-your-own-everything) strategy or are planning for one. Using mobile technologies for teaching and learning is the top priority, however guidance or institutional support to students and faculty for how best to do so is still uncommon.

Before Moovweb, IT organizations at major universities were forced to create separate mobile silos that are costly to maintain and almost impossible to keep in sync with core web assets. Responsive web design has emerged as a technique for unification, but requires costly rewrites of existing sites and can cause slow performance for mobile devices. 

Moovweb solves these issues by offering a cloud-based platform that transforms existing web assets into high performance responsive mobile sites and apps, all without the big rewrite. With Moovweb, mobile sites and apps stay in sync with a their desktop counterparts in real time, cutting cost and enabling precious IT resources to focus on new development. Powerful mobile experiences can be delivered in days, not months and IT organizations can respond much faster to business needs.

With Moovweb's mobile platform, IT organizations provide immediate value to students and faculty with mobile-enabled services including simplified course management, access to account information and integrated purchases from the bookstore. Administrators can easily push out news and urgent announcements throughout campus as well as provide alumni timely, location relevant information.

Developers can get started quickly by downloading the free Moovweb developer tools. With the developer tools they create a fully functional local copy of the target website then transform and style the mobile experience using Tritium, the Moovweb scripting language. Once finished, developers simply deploy their projects to the Moovweb cloud.
