Our History

OmniUpdate was founded in 1982 and incorporated in California by software pioneers Tom Nalevanko and Yves Lempereur. With a series of best-selling software products like desktop applications MacFlow™ and WinFlow™, the company broke new ground in several key areas, including network file exchange protocols and human interface.

In the early 90s, President and CEO Lance Merker joined the team, refocusing our company's strengths in the web applications marketplace. Since then, we have set the bar high with the development of OU Campus™, our web-based, feature-rich web content management system (CMS) created specifically for higher education. For more than a decade, we have been a leading provider in web content management solutions for colleges and universities throughout the US and are expanding rapidly worldwide.

What We Do Today

Our company continues to offer the most innovative products in the industry. We are dedicated to exceeding the needs of our customers by providing them with the latest web CMS and digital marketing tools. We offer both Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Enterprise Server License (ESL) delivery models, arming our customers with a cost-effective, scalable, and efficient way to manage their web and digital marketing content in the deployment manner that best suits their institutional requirements.
