Schoolwires® Centricity2™ receives eSchool News Readers' Choice Award
“Schoolwires has created the ultimate content management environment for digital communication,” said George Weeks, director of technology for New Jersey’s Glassboro Public Schools. “Centricity makes it easy to keep our sites fresh and continually update the information we present to the public. The backend interface is easy to use, allowing anyone to edit a page, a section, or an entire site—making the traditional webmaster obsolete. Web page editing is as simple as creating an eMail. … With this product, we have been able to make our Web portal the primary source for information about the schools. Web statistics show a steady increase in unique visitors every month since we implemented the product five years ago.”
Centricity2 was selected by readers of eSchool News who were asked to submit their top picks for school hardware, software, websites, and services. Nearly 1,300 readers responded. The editors then chose the 50 best responses.
