, the leading provider of academic catalog and curriculum management, class and student scheduling and student pathfinder software for higher education. The acquisition enables Modern Campus to accelerate its commitment to customer success by revolutionizing learner engagement with massively personalized digital experiences.
Modern Campus will integrate its award-winning web experience platform and personalization engine with DIGARC's comprehensive course curriculum management software. Together, they will empower higher education institutions to solve two of the biggest challenges they face today: attracting and converting prospective students, and creating a highly personalized and engaging pathway to on-time graduation. In most institutions today, accessing the course catalog – typically the first stop for prospective students after the homepage – requires navigating an often-cumbersome menu structure. Likewise, current students often struggle to set a path to successful program completion. With DIGARC, Modern Campus Omni CMS (https://moderncampus.com/products/omni-cms.html

They expect a highly personalized, Netflix-like experience. They're primarily focused on maximizing the return on one of the most important and largest investments they'll make – their post-secondary education," said Brian Kibby, chief executive officer of Modern Campus.
