OpenScholar 3 Core Benefits

Over the last few weeks we've discussed how OpenScholar was designed for universities that want to:

  1. Lower IT Costs
    by outsourcing help desk support, system administration and hosting
  2. Delight Faculty by upgrading their websites
    providing beautiful sites that support most all scholarly use cases
  3. Streamline & Improve Branding
    because applicants are digital natives and online branding truly matters

Lowering IT Costs

OpenScholar is a complete academic website building platform that requires no knowledge of coding, so no need to hire an external web developer each time a site update is needed. We also provide a full-time help desk support team to assist during site creation and beyond. We also handle all system administration & hosting, eliminating the need to hire and pay for third party services.
