With a shared vision to create a company that keeps the customer at its very core, Owners Rob O’Leary and Grant Wright founded Infinite Cohesion, LTD (D.B.A. eSchoolView) in 2008.
The pair first joined forces in 2002 to create SchoolPointe (part of the Digital School Network) to design websites for schools and educational organizations, then struck out on their own when SchoolPointe merged with another company in 2007.
Kroger, Limited Brands, and various townships and cities were among Infinite Cohesion’s first clients. Yet Rob and Grant -- entrepreneurial whizzes -- wanted to return to specializing in serving schools and school districts with their content management system and CMS-based products and tools, so in 2008 they established eSchoolView.
North Ridgeville City Schools was the first eSchoolView client, but the list quickly grew. Since one of the core values at eSchoolView is customer satisfaction, updates and enhancements for the content management system software are routine, and now more than 1,300 schools and districts rely on eSchoolView to power their websites across the U.S.
“We have a constantly growing list of ideas, and we rank them based on our customer feedback,” Rob said. “If a customer needs something, we make it a priority to build the component or revise our current system to make sure the CMS is meeting their communication needs.”
Rob and Grant have also established key partnerships to make their product affordable and accessible to all districts. Many educational organizations in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, New York, Colorado, Arizona, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Illinois, California, Arkansas, West Virginia, South Dakota, Texas, New Jersey, Georgia and Pennsylvania directly endorse the eSchoolView Content Management System (CMS) and integrated products.
In fact, some of the eSchoolView products — Facilities Management, Parent Portal, Online Forms, Instant Connect, Learn, Event Registration, School Store and Mobile Suite — were created as a direct result of these partnerships and meeting the diverse needs of clients. These products are now bundled for more power and efficiency in delivering affordable, easy to use website solutions.
Rob and Grant are no longer alone on their mission; the eSchoolView team has grown to two dozen creative individuals who share a similar passion for building and growing this Software as a Service (SaaS) company, the premiere website solution for schools, districts, and education organizations.
