Merger of Two EdTechs Creates New Leader in Digital Campus

Education technology players, LookingGlass Platform and Kryptos Mobile, announced today having merged into a single company for digital campus and student engagement, named Unifyed, LLC effective immediately. Unifyed offers higher education powerful, rapidly deployable solutions to create a digital campus. The new company’s centralized, cloud-based platform enables institutions to easily build and manage web, portal and mobile campus experiences.

The combination of the two companies into Unifyed creates a new and disruptive edtech player, capable of the digital transformation of an entire university in days or weeks. Unifyed already serves more than 20,000,000 end users across 30,000 institutions in North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East.

“Unifyed brings together two innovators that can help top-ranking institutions as well as small private schools engage students better across all their devices,” said Anjli Jain, Unifyed’s Founder & Chairman. “Universities and colleges struggle with student engagement and digital transformation because of outdated enterprise systems and resource constraints. Unifyed takes a mobile-first approach to design, optimizing delivery on mobile devices and up the chain to desktops. We have integration to the major SIS, CRM, LMS, and other systems. Together, that puts data to work on phones and websites faster and elegantly. Our platform is disruptive because we invest heavily to make it simple for colleges to launch a mobile and web experience without having to write code.”

Unifyed Studio: Platform for Higher Education
The merger makes it possible for Unifyed to introduce its Unifyed Studio, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution geared to the needs of the education sector. The platform slims or eliminates redundancies, so that institutions do not need to upkeep multiple websites, content systems, and mobile applications to keep pace on limited budgets. Those silos rarely integrate with the core student information systems (SIS), resulting in databases that do not sync and security risks.

Since Unifyed’s Studio includes security-rich connectors into the leading SIS products, both students and administrators can rapidly take advantage of a wide range of online and cloud-based services, including:

Centrally managed websites, portals, and mobile apps—scalable and customizable across a large institution’s many colleges, departments, and campuses.

Ready-to-use templates and plugins that can reduce or eliminate long, costly software implementations and learning curves.

Apps for classroom attendance, enhanced on-campus safety, social networking, and targeted messaging and fundraising for students, clubs, and alumni.

Faster student application and processing, so that applying to the college is easier for both the candidates and admissions.

Student engagement solutions, surveys, guidance apps, and other tools that speed and improve communications and insights into student life.

Unifyed Studio allows customers to choose from a variety of themes, templates, applications, and other a la carte services, depending upon their design, content, or information technology needs. Or, they may build their own—and some colleges have, in fact, held contests for students to create their own apps using Unifyed’s Studio.

“Unifyed introduces an advanced microservices architecture and is powered by Amazon Web Services. We will now be able to roll out student engagement and business process automation features much more rapidly, scalably, securely and cost effectively,” said Anjli Jain, Founder and Chairman, Unifyed.

Unifyed provides higher education with a single platform to rapidly launch a digital campus for mobile devices and websites. Unifyed services more than 20 million end users today and has recently been selected by 30,000 education institutions as an engagement platform.
