OmniUpdate Achieves Record-Setting Growth for the 15th Consecutive Year

Technology firm reports increased revenue and customer growth in 2017

Camarillo, CA—January 25, 2018—OmniUpdate, the leading web content management system (CMS) provider for higher education, announced today that 2017 marked the 15th consecutive year of record growth for the company.

OU Insights™ was at the forefront of module sales in 2017.
