Enter Clever, an organization that blends mobile computing with data analytics to provide holistic mobile and web-based solutions to the education sector. The San Francisco based company is gaining traction when most school districts use legacy student information databases that are incapable of integrating with numerous learning apps and allow access through a single portal.
Clever’s system is built to transfer data between school district’s databases, which contain important and sensitive student data, and third party learning apps that are used by teachers. Clever also allows school districts to monitor the student information sent to third party, making sure that the data transfer is secure. For teachers and students, Clever makes things simple by removing the hassle of multiple login credentials with its single sign-on interface. This feature is useful for schools that use a greater number of digital services, clubbed with numerous apps that require multiple logins. “Teachers and educators were spending more time troubleshooting than teaching,” says Tyler Bosmeny, CEO and Co-founder, Clever.
Clever’s solution removes the clunky and outdated student information system, streamlines student data management, and tightens security at the same time
With more than 50,000 schools under their ambit and 200 applications in their database, Clever puts next generation learning software in the hands of students and educators. The company recently joined hands with Rediker Software, a 30-year-old e-learning software solutions provider, to offer K-12 institutions a seamless data experience. In addition, Clever is also gathering data from different schools to analyze obstacles that may affect the education sector in the coming years. “We’re solving the challenges of today while iterating as fast as we can to solve the problems of tomorrow,” Bosmeny emphasizes.
The education sector has many diverse contributors that include textbook publishers, developers of record keeping and curriculum software, and now manufacturers of smartphones and apps. Clever has been successful in bringing all the contributors under one umbrella, allowing data flow through a singular platform, thus making digital learning a seamless process.
