5 / 9 - 2017

IST, Europe’s leading edtech company, and MIT Education solutions have entered into a strategic alliance and partnership through an IST Value Added Reseller agreement. The agreement gives MIT the backing of a large edtech company with a comprehensive product portfolio, in their ambitions to cater for the imminent and growing needs in the Irish Education market.

We see a lot of opportunity in the Irish market, due to active government ICT grants for the education sector, upcoming procurements as well as Ireland being a global hub for big multinational companies. In all this I see MIT with their experience in the Education sector, and their location in the innovative environment at the WIT/TSSG Arclabs Innovation Centre, as a perfect partner, says Mikael Wahlberg Head of Marketing and Sales at IST Products.

With the agreement in place IST together with MIT have the means necessary to offer IST’s cloud based solutions to the Irish market. In addition it will also strengthen MIT’s offerings to their existing customer base.

Having a cloud based, multitenant solution, built using a distributed architecture does not only allow for a more feasible and effective implementation in comparison to site-based solutions, it also allows and strengthens possibilities for reporting and business analytics at different organizational levels. We believe this is by far one of the most urgent needs in the Irish educational sector, Mikael Wahlberg explains.

Our customers, and education customers in general, require a broad range of innovative and diverse technology solutions to enable them to provide 21st. century teaching and learning as well as school administration. By partnering with IST, and by leveraging the resources of such a large and trusted EdTech company, MIT are now in a position to deliver and support end-to-end seamless Education technology solutions for our customers, says Seamus Morris Managing Director & Founder of MIT Education Solutions.
