From new products to new customers, 2018 will be the year of rSmart. While there are hundreds of reasons to be pumped for 2018, here is our list of the 18 things we are most excited for you to know in the coming year.

  • CampusConfirm – The second product to join the rSmart family, CampusConfirm, helps to streamline schools’ verification process for essential student and staff information. Think: digital. We’re making #simplifycampuslife a thing.
  • CampusClassifieds –  Rolling out mid-2018, CampusClassifieds will be an online community marketplace for students, staff, and faculty to buy and sell items to one another.
  • OneCampus App – Your favorite campus portal software is now available in the IOS app store and the Android Market. Let’s get h(appy)!
  • # of Campuses – OneCampus is now available on more than 80 campuses. Is your campus next?
  • # of Users – rSmart reaches more than one million end users and continues growing. You might think you can wait, but can your students?
  • Customer Feedback – Customer service isn’t just something we say. It’s who we are. Since 2014, more than 75 percent of OneCampus feature enhancements have been direct customer recommendations. Keep the feedback coming!
  • 2nd Annual rSmart Users Conference – You’re Invited! Not only will the rSmart team be attending conferences across the US, we will also be hosting our second Users Conference in our hometown, Scottsdale, AZ. Come soak up the sun and learn about OneCampus best practices from our super (r)smart customers.
  • Affordability – With so many updates and enhancements coming to rSmart in 2018, we remain committed to helping you modernize campus technology in a way that doesn’t break your budget.
  • New UI Design – Watch out world, OneCampus is getting a facelift. Stay tuned in early 2018 for a new user interface for OneCampus instances.
  • International Status – Grab your passports! OneCampus is now available internationally, thanks to our first Canadian customer, Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
  • Pinned Sections – According to rSmart Senior Software Engineer Allan Sonkin, the best new functionality within OneCampus  released in 2017 is the ability to pin sections on your front page and we couldn’t agree more! Shoutout to The Ohio State University for requesting this new functionality.
  • Permission Groups – You now have “permission” to group different departments within OneCampus based on the access you wish to grant them. Handing you more control, one release at a time!
  • New Connectors – The next-gen campus portal software, OneCampus, offers Banner and Canvas connectors to make connecting and linking campus services even easier. Be on the lookout for EVEN MORE connectors in 2018.
  • New Conferences – In 2018, rSmart is exploring some new ed-tech conferences like the Chief Information Systems Officers Association of the California Community Colleges and the C.I.T.O Vendor Show in Iowa. You can also catch us at some of our favorites, Educause and UBTech 2018.
  • rSmart.com – With new products and some slight re-branding (think: new colors), we are making the new rSmart.com our priority to showcase our awesomeness a little more. Stay tuned for new look in Q2.
  • Sweet 16 – It’s our birthday and we can cry if we want to. rSmart turns 16 in 2018.
  • Ask the Experts – We won’t stop rolling out new functionality but it can be hard to know what’s in every product release. rSmart experts now provide an open platform called “Ask the Experts” webinar, for your team to ask questions about the current and past releases.
  • Shared Experiences – Want to hear from current OneCampus users about how the next-gen campus portal software solved their challenges? Let us know and we will put you in touch to get the story direct.
