What Finalsite Composer Users Have to Say...

"We brought in $31,000 in sales from 681 transactions and 1,400 total items sold using Finalsite's Commerce Manager. This would not be possible if we could only use the on-campus store. Our campus store is only open two days a week, but the online school store allows the greater community to purchase when it is most convenient for them."

Colleen Adams, Director of Marketing and Communications
Fairfield College Preparatory School


"Calendar Manager saved our school 228 hours – nearly six weeks of staff time. That resulted in a savings of almost $5,000!"

Meghan Easterly, Webmaster
Seacrest Country Day School

"Calendar Manager makes it easy for parents to find any event by topic and the necessary event details like location and time right on the calendar. The module also makes it easy to show parents/guardians if an event is cancelled, postponed, changed, or on time."

Jonathan DeRosa, Principal
St. Mary School

"We used Posts to turn our PDF curriculum guide into a web page. We were impressed by the functionality, visual and aesthetic design with Posts. It simply works and made sense for what we were hoping to accomplish."

Zaw Lyn, Associate Director of Communications
Maret School

"One of our goals for our bicentennial is to provide opportunity for our constituents to share their stories, recollections and what makes them grateful to be part of the SLUH community. Our digital solution was Finalsite Posts because it allows contributors to write or post as much content — such as text, photos and video — as they'd like. Post's design and interface provides exceptional functionality for both the viewer and user."

Ben DuMont, Director of Communications
St. Louis University High School
