FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LONGLEAF SOLUTIONS, DATACATION AND CASENEX REBRAND AS IO EDUCATION
The combined business, IO Education, will deliver innovative data solutions to grow student achievement, operations efficiency and educator effectiveness for K-12 school districts
ATLANTA, GA. – May 24, 2016 – Longleaf Solutions and CaseNEX, announced today the rebranding of the combined business as IO Education. In support of the new brand, IO Education unveiled a new logo and website at https://www.ioeducation.com and announced an integrated product portfolio.
The mission of the new company is to empower educators through data to improve educational outcomes for students.
“Our new name, IO Education, is simply a reflection of what this organization has been doing for a long time – improving educational outcomes. While the name has changed, our commitment to educators and their students remains as strong as ever. We believe that each student deserves the best education that is personalized to them,” said Michael Williamson, CEO of IO Education and previous founder and CEO of Longleaf Solutions.
Peter Bencivenga, chief academic officer of IO Education and previous founder and CEO of DataCation said, “We believe that providing the right data to the right people at the right time will empower teachers and administrators with new insights about student achievement and school performance and equip them to take the best actions to improve educational outcomes.”
At the core of the offerings is an integrated K-12 data platform that aggregates data from existing school, district and state systems and makes that data insightful and actionable through the IO Education products. As the hub of data integration with district and state source systems, the K-12 data platform ensures high performance, accurate, secure and private data management.
Since the merger, IO Education has worked to rationalize its broad portfolio of products into four essential solution areas for educators and administrators and integrate them with this new K-12 data platform.
The new product offerings are organized into extensible modules for each solution area that align with school and district needs. The K-12 data platform and the modular products approach will allow IO Education customers to select the data integrations and the products that they require at implementation and extend their solution over time.
