Rediker Software, a leader in school administrative software, announced today the release of RediSite, a responsive website design and hosting solution for PK-12 schools. The service provides schools and districts with an attractive and affordable website that delivers an optimal viewing experience on any device. The site intelligently adjusts to any size screen for easy reading and navigation on smartphones, tablets and computers without having to maintain a separate mobile site.
“In 2015, at least 60 percent of global mobile consumers used their mobile device as their primary or exclusive internet source,” stated Andrew Anderlonis, President of Rediker Software. “Therefore, it is critical for schools to have an attractive website that can be easily viewed not just on a computer but on a smartphone or tablet,” he said.
While there are many responsive website companies on the market, Rediker Software created RediSite to alleviate its customers’ pain points with their current sites; those being slow turnaround in launching sites, difficulty in making changes quickly and easily, and high costs.
RediSite websites are built with the user-friendly content management system (CMS) concrete5. Rather than relying on a webmaster to make changes to a site, or navigate a cumbersome user interface, RediSite websites allow any user with permission to easily add, edit or reposition content. Users maintain a high level of control over any changes needed while still ensuring the site’s responsive integrity.
Cross Schools in Bluffton, SC was one of the first schools to adopt RediSite. “With Rediker, our staff is now able to directly sign on to our website, make changes, add content and pictures, and update a calendar of events instantly and easily,” said Kim Trask, Business Manager at Cross Schools. “Rediker has enabled us to transform our website into a professional and interactive website. We could not be more pleased with the results. Rediker has put our school back in control of its website.”
RediSite also offers many built-in design templates that keep costs low and provide schools with the ability to be up and running with their new site in less than 30 days. “Whether a school prefers to display large visuals or share more news, documents and text on their website, we offer an attractive and customizable template to fit the school’s needs and match its unique brand. Custom designs and themes are also available,” explained Anderlonis.
RediSite websites are also integrated with the company’s student information system, AdminPlus, and the parent/student web portals, PlusPortals, to create a seamless total solution for schools. Members of a school community with RediSite can directly log into PlusPortals from any page on the school’s website to access grades, attendance records, lesson plans, and interactive classroom features such as online discussions, quizzes, homework submissions, and email. The school’s Redisite calendar is also linked to PlusPortals so school events are only entered once but appear in both places.
“By empowering schools with a responsive website that is easy to use and up to date, and that communicates with AdminPlus and PlusPortals, Rediker Software is able to offer a true total solution that helps schools streamline administrative tasks and maximize school-to-home communication,” Anderlonis said. “RediSite makes beautiful responsive websites quickly attainable, affordable and manageable for all types of schools. We couldn’t be more pleased to offer such a great service to our customers.”
RediSite websites are search engine optimization (SEO) friendly and include website search and social media features such as Vimeo and YouTube sharing, Facebook and Twitter feeds, alert messages, and much more. A 24/7 Training and Support Portal also offers helpful tips and FAQs to edit and update the site.
“We now have more than 100 schools using the RediSite solution with great success,” added Anderlonis, “and we are thrilled to continue expanding use of this superb and modern website solution for schools.”
RediSite is available to any school using any student information system. To learn more about RediSite, visit www.rediker.com.
