Brescia University students, faculty, staff, parents and the general public now have a new resource available to them on their Apple devices and smart phones.
Red Pixel Studios today announced the launch of the Brescia University App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and a mobile Web site so that smart phone users can keep informed of the news and activities at the University.
The Brescia University App is available for free download on the App Store. Brescia’s mobile site can be found at http://m.brescia.edu.
Brescia University approached Red Pixel Studios about creating tools for mobile devices to coincide with the launch of the school’s newly designed Web site. Brescia’s new Web site, which can be seen at brescia.edu, was also developed by Red Pixel Studios and launched in August. The site features new school colors and easier access to pertinent information for the target audience – prospective students.
Brescia University selected Red Pixel Studios for the digital overhaul not just because of their talent and experience in Web site design. “It was a no-brainer for us to use the team at Red Pixel Studios,” said Tina Kasey, public relations director at Brescia. “Owners Eric and Jason Kyle are both alumni, as are other members of their team. We knew we could trust them to fully understand and execute the strategic plan we developed. We are very pleased with the outcome and look forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
“The opportunity to work on this extensive project was exciting and challenging,” said Eric Kyle, president of Red Pixel Studios. “It is an honor to design and build these valuable communications tools for our alma mater. For many, the Brescia University Web site will be the first impression they get of the school. We are extremely proud to help develop that image.”
The Brescia University App for iPhone and the mobile Web site are targeted more toward current students and their parents to help enrich the Brescia experience. The two tools mirror one another so that anyone with a smart phone can access the same information. Both provide on-the-go access to a faculty/staff directory; Brescia news; school-related and athletic calendars; official Facebook and Twitter feeds; and a location map of the University.
