“Of course Finalsite has a nice product, but we chose Finalsite because they are the experts in helping schools sell themselves. We wanted a partner who could help us make better choices that would give it that polished, private school look and feel — and not have the same pitfalls as other district websites.”
MARK A. STEELMAN, WEBMASTER
“I know whenever I see a Finalsite website, I know its quality. And I know there’s not going to be any one who can match what you do. You have the most innovative, best modules and software for everything districts need. There’s no comparison.”
Valarie Hull, Director of Communications
"A highly weighted component in our decision analysis to move to Finalsite was the understanding that you are a digital communication organization and thought leader, not simply a website provider. We are really looking forward to the opportunity to enhance our game."
Jennifer Flierl, Executive Director of Communications
“We wanted to create a new website that could promote our amazing district, enhance communication, and assist parents in accessing information. Finalsite met all of our expectations and delivered a custom website and excellent management solution. We could not be happier with the professionalism, expertise, and service they continue to provide us. ”
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICES
"We wanted a platform that could easily be used by end users, but wouldn't turn into a disastrous mess — and was very stylized. Finalsite was the only provider that met those two requirements, and since then, has exceeded those expectations."
