Edlio Acquires SchoolInfo and Launches Edlio Access Mobile App
Edlio, a leading provider of technology solutions for K-12 schools, is pleased to announce its acquisition of SchoolInfo, creators of premier mobile app solutions for schools.
Based out of Ruston, Louisiana, SchoolInfo has employees throughout the United States and Europe. SchoolInfo has proudly served the education market for 10 years, and has created mobile apps for more than 2,500 schools, districts, and other organizations. Nearly 3 million teachers, parents, and students worldwide rely on SchoolInfo products to bridge the school-to-home communication gap.
Edlio serves over 16,000 schools in North America, and has been a proven partner for K-12 leaders for 20 years. Founder and CEO Ali Arsan built his first school website in 2001, and ever since the company has worked to innovate and adapt to the ever-changing needs of teachers and school administrators. The Edlio product suite is designed to be user-friendly for any educator, yet powerful enough to meet the needs of even the largest school districts and communities.
As a result of the acquisition of SchoolInfo, Edlio will now add the Edlio Access app to their product lineup. This new addition to the Edlio suite provides K-12 leaders with an option to host their own branded school app in the App Store, featuring two-way communication, security features such as Hall Pass and Wellness Screener, and direct access to school information and updates on all mobile devices. Edlio Access rounds out the Edlio technology suite, which already includes a robust CMS website platform; a built-in communication tool for email, voice, and text; and online payment processing for K-12 schools. School leaders will now be able to consolidate their digital communications, payments, and website tools under one vendor with Edlio; empowering them to do more with one login than other EdTech providers.
Arsan is excited about the acquisition and what it will mean for the future of Edlio. “We’re excited to bring the Access app to the Edlio product suite because of the ability it gives us to offer our clients a robust app that is branded to their school’s colors and logo; but more importantly, this app will increase their opportunities to engage students, staff, families, and community members. SchoolInfo has a proven track record of serving educators, and because of that it was a natural fit to welcome them to the Edlio family," he said.
CEO and Co-Founder of SchoolInfo, Jordan Riggs, echoed Arsan’s sentiments: “Joining forces with the Edlio team will enable us to reach and impact more K-12 school communities, furthering SchoolInfo's mission to simplify communication for schools and families everywhere. We’re excited to build on the world-class support and solutions we currently provide for our clients, our reseller partners and their customers, as well as introducing our mobile app solutions to Edlio’s school and district clients,” he said.
Julie Riggs, President and Co-Founder of SchoolInfo, also added, “We began SchoolInfo as busy parents simply looking for a way to make life a little bit easier for parents, students, teachers and school administrators. We’re proud of the amazing and dedicated SchoolInfo team and look forward to furthering that vision now as part of the larger Edlio family.”
Existing SchoolInfo customers will now benefit from Edlio’s personalized and unlimited support solutions, available to all users of any Edlio and SchoolInfo product. This includes dedicated Client Success Specialists for each account, unlimited access to the Help Desk and technical support for all users, and a full library of resources in the Client Resource Hub to help clients get the most out of their Edlio technology suite. This partnership means that the teachers, administrators, and reseller partners Edlio and SchoolInfo serve will now have access to two world-class support teams under one vendor.
