With this acquisition, Modo will introduce a powerful commercial
gateway, Modo Marketplace™ and expand on the capabilities of the Modo
Campus
® solution. Modo Marketplace will facilitate safe and
authenticated transactions between students, student organizations,
university departments, and more, all within their campus app. With the
new commerce capabilities, customers can quickly build a campus app
enabling a student to buy a bike from a classmate, register for a
university 5K run, pay club membership dues, or sell textbooks to their
campus bookstore. Every transaction will be processed securely through
the PCI-compliant Modo Marketplace payment system and can be integrated
with existing university payment gateways and student ID card providers.

Adding Ulyngo and the Modo Marketplace is a natural evolution of the
Modo Campus capabilities, from publishing to communications and
commerce, further empowering students to be the content creators within
their campus apps.

“We have been searching for ways to better reach students with the
services and information they need and use most, especially when it
comes to commerce. Ulyngo and Modo together will allow us to do just
that,” said Aaron Ochoa, Director at the University of California, Davis
Stores.

“Our vision is to transform the campus digital experience (DX) by
helping our customers engage their mobile-first students,” said Stewart
Elliot, CEO of Modo. “The addition of Ulyngo to the Modo no-code app
development platform is a critical component and logical next step to
doing so. By adding robust e-commerce capabilities, we’re bringing the
full student lifecycle to a mobile experience and beyond.”

“When we created Ulyngo, our mission was to establish a new way for
students to safely and easily, transact and engage on campus. By joining
Modo, we will have the opportunity to expand upon that mission and reach
campuses across the globe,” said Alexander Jekowsky, Founder and CEO of
Ulyngo. “We are excited to join Modo and together create a single
solution that can unify all elements of the student experience.”

Modo and Ulyngo already share multiple joint customers, offering a
proven and market-tested integrated combination. The next-generation
vision to offer e-commerce capabilities throughout the Modo product
suite is already under development, driving transformation of Modo
Marketplace from a point solution to an expansive PCI-compliant platform
that enables every activity, event, department, and campus organization
to leverage a secure marketplace using their campus app.
