Our humble beginnings were in a cramped office in Framingham, Mass. Young and eager, we
accepted website work from an eclectic mix of customers: banks, a trophy company, a candle maker,and a modern art collector.
It became clear that a singular focus was key to our customers’ success. We chose to build websites for private K-12 schools only, set out to understand their specific needs, and tailored
our solutions accordingly.
Security & Reliability
We began hosting school websites, leveraging our Internet knowledge to deploy upgrades and
maintain uptime. This freed schools from the headaches of compliance, security, performance,
and server infrastructure - and lowered costs associated with launching and operating a website.
Together at last
Report cards, newsletters, student schedules. It was time to put them all in one place. We built a brand new Student Information System and integrated it
with our Content Management System to provide users with a better, more integrated online experience.
All About Service
We transitioned our product to a service-oriented architecture (SOA), providing a platform
on which other companies could deploy software and information services. This created an
ecosystem that allowed easy interaction among products that were already popular with our
customers. Today, WhippleHill lets competing products coexist and exchange data, so schools
can choose solutions that work best for them.
On the Road
Hardly anyone is at a desk all day long anymore. Your school should be able to communicate to them - as long as they have a device in hand. Welcome to mobile sites.
We built award-winning websites for private schools. We personalized content so that parents and students could access what they needed, when they needed it. However, private schools still faced a challenge. Schools needed to build their community online as well as offline in order to be successful - and the way to do that was to create a brand new user experience so intuitive, that everyone would use it. Every day.
Your Whole School
We listened to our schools and found out how they used our products, how their schools were changing, and what they really needed. We enhanced and built the software that is redefining the way school communities interact online, and brought the most forward-thinking user experience to the K-12 private school market.
