Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
SchoolMessenger, a leading provider of parent notification solutions for education, received top honors in Tech & Learning Magazine’s 2011 Awards of Excellence.
This award, now in its 29th year, honors products that include ground breaking innovations in K12 education. All entries were given a rigorous test-drive by qualified educators in several rounds of judging. Products are evaluated based on the following criteria: quality and effectiveness, ease of use, creative use of technology, and suitability for use in an educational environment.
“This year’s Award of Excellence judges put over 160 products to the test, and chose only those that met these criteria. These companies can be proud that their products were selected as winners by this prestigious team of judges,” says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media’s Tech & Learning Group.
SchoolMessenger was recognized in the category of “Best Upgraded Product.” This category honors already-released products that have made significant enhancements since the previous version. In addition, the product must have evolved with the changing technology to continue to offer the highest quality experience for educators and students.
“SchoolMessenger is honored to receive such a prestigious award. We are committed to partnering with educators to encourage communication that improves community relations, increases parental involvement and makes a direct impact on the lives of students,” said Nate Brogan, Vice President of Marketing for SchoolMessenger. “We take our role as a communications provider very seriously and are proud to have our commitment to innovation recognized by this award.”
