AVST in Education

More than 1,200 educational institutions, including top universities as well as public and private K-12 schools, use AVST’s communications solutions.

Education Overview

AVST delivers the industry's most interoperable communications platform bringing best-of-breed mobile, voice and business process applications to educational institutions. We’ve been in business for 35+ years and, unlike virtually every other unified communications vendor, we don’t constrain customers with a single vendor lock-in approach. In fact, it's the very opposite. By connecting new and existing technologies, our solutions allow customers to keep their critical components in place while at the same time deploying innovative feature-rich applications.

San Diego State University is just one of more than 1,200 examples of how AVST helps educational institutions plan for the future. With an enrollment of 34,000 students, along with 9,600 faculty and staff members, SDSU is the largest university in San Diego, as well as the oldest and one of the biggest in the 23 campus California State University (CSU) system. When campus officials determined they needed a next-generation communications solution that would deliver advanced applications while seamlessly integrating with their existing telephony and IT systems, they turned to AVST.

“With an average of up to 200,000 calls a week, we needed a system that could reliably handle such a high call volume and provide a platform for growth. CX-E from AVST was the only solution that fit the bill.”
— Kathleen Sullivan, San Diego State University Voicemail Administrator

Along with SDSU, the largest public U.S. university, the largest private U.S. university, and 50 percent of University of California campuses all rely on AVST’s communications solutions. We bring educational institutions into the future by building pioneering applications that easily fit into any environment.
