X-Factor Communications helps institutions of higher education and K-12 Schools communicate more effectively and comply with regulations across campus, ensuring students, faculty and visitors are up to date with the latest campus news and information, especially in emergency situations.

Powerful Content Creation, Management & Distribution Platform

Although each educational community is unique, the need to improve the overall campus experience and safety through effective communication for students, faculty and visitors is not unique and the challenges are paramount. The company's easy-to-use flagship application, Digital Screen Control Portal (DSCP://), addresses these challenges by delivering single point publishing of Mass Notifications, advisories, rich informational content and advertising to any IP connected device.

This powerful platform helps higher education and K-12 Schools create and deliver "any content" quickly and easily on "any device" including mobile phones, tablets, smart phones, SharePoint, intranet sites, desktops, kiosks, digital signs, and telephones "anywhere". No matter what screen students are using, you can incorporate dynamic PowerPoint documents, live videos, real-time RSS and XML feeds in order to provide customized informational applications on any display. Content can be "interactive content", allowing the user to embed clickable links to detailed information, launch a related video, or register for an event on campus.
