We Do The Heavy Lifting So You Don’t Have To
Thousands of Content Providers and Systems,
One Seamless Integration
Ambassador aggregates content and data from thousands of publishers and systems. We handle all integrations with your school’s SIS, LMS, Financial Systems and Content Platforms through a centralized interface so your team doesn’t have to manage and maintain endless integrations. Plus we handle multiple platforms simultaneously within each institution.
Money-Saving Financial Controls
for Bottom-Line Protection
Put an end to overpaying for digital content, including unused licenses. Ambassador’s Pub PinPoint technology verifies usage and fees, ensuring your school and students only pay for the appropriate duration, especially when the same digital materials are used across multiple courses and terms. Additionally, we initially front the cost for materials, and your school pays for items shipped to/accessed by students, minimizing your financial risk.
Streamlined, Modern Digital Content
and Device Experience
Ambassador’s Digital Advantage offers complete digital management. We work with publishers to secure materials, we handle all aspects of Inclusive Access and Equitable Access, and we manage your school’s digital catalog, licenses, access configuration, adds, drops, duplicate access and opt-outs. We also oversee every aspect of your device program, including selection, inventory, fulfilment, Wi-Fi hot spots, and returns.
Analytics That Tell You Exactly
What You Need to Know
We believe information should be simple to access and use. Our proprietary business intelligence technology easily connects your team to a variety of standard and custom reports. Because we integrate with your school’s systems, our real-time reporting makes content easier to manage and track, especially for Inclusive Access programs and Publisher Direct Content through your school’s LMS.
Your Own Inventory for
Your Own Students
Ambassador works with your school to build your dedicated inventory, which is not shared with other schools or across marketplace purchases. This increases availability for your students, and it’s easier to ship all items in a student’s order together at one time and under a more consistent timeline guarantee.
