Ed Tech Integration Available at No Cost to Thousands of Schools

MMS Student Information Platform and Clever partner to extend availability of educational tools to schools across the United States

Barrington, NH – December 1, 2014 – Budgets are only part of the problem when it comes to schools adopting innovative education technology tools. The IT headache that frequently accompanies bringing new products into a school can be just as daunting as the price tag. Today, Computer Resources, makers of the MMS Student Information Platform, and Clever, announced a partnership that puts exceptional educational programs in front of educators and students across the country with no integration effort – for free.

The partnership allows any school using MMS to set up Clever with the click of a button, and easily manage student accounts in online learning software. Schools then have access to dozens of educational applications allowing access to social learning environments, learning management systems, curriculum, professional development, and content resources, many of which are well known and free. Public, charter, parochial, and independent schools can set up their favorite online learning applications with a few button clicks. Those applications are then available directly to the users who need them through Clever’s Instant Login.

By automating a process that is typically manual, MMS’s new Clever integration will save teachers and school support staff hundreds of hours of data entry that waste instructional time.

“Clever has become the recognized leader in eliminating data entry so that schools can use online learning products easily and effectively.” says Mike Bronder, Group Vice President for Computer Resources, “With Clever, we know that every single one of our customers can immediately benefit from the automated integration Clever provides, and the network of applications they support.”

Supported by Clever, schools are now able to securely sync enrollment data from MMS with dozens of well-known applications. Administrators easily set up the sync, and having done so, maintain complete control over what data is shared with each application partner. This new functionality is available to all MMS schools immediately.

“Clever partnering with MMS means schools across the country will have better access to the best learning technology,” said Matt Pasternack, Head of Growth at Clever. “We are excited to partner with MMS because of their excellent 35-year track record and commitment to making student information management as easy as possible. We’re thrilled to help MMS create new educational opportunities for their schools.”
