SIS Global is excited to announce its strategic partnership with Edsby. “This appointment marks a significant step in the evolution of SIS Global Education’s plan to continue developing and investing in growing its portfolio of Microsoft aligned products to deliver value to the global education sector. This partnership will enable SIS Global to build on successes achieved in higher education for K-12 institutions, school districts and regional governments," said Ian Bayley, Executive Head Education, SIS Global.

SIS Global can demonstrate industry knowledge and expertise, as well as consistent, high-quality service and solutions to its education customers. With Microsoft’s announcement of SIS Global Education as a finalist in the ‘South African Partner of the Year Awards’ and Edsby as the awarded winner of ‘Global Education Partner of the Year, 2019’, this evolving partnership will drive further success through strong growth in the recruitment of new customer additions and increased revenues, by leveraging the latest Microsoft technology as the solution platform.

Edsby is an award-winning digital learning and data platform for K-12 that gives school districts and regional or national governments powerful new ways to facilitate their digital transformations. The Edsby team has been building scalable, reliable software systems for education organisations around the world for 30 years using latest technology and standards.

“We welcome SIS Global to our growing list of partners around the world,” said Edsby CEO John Myers. “Their reach across Africa, the Middle East and Europe and deep experience in education make this a good fit as Edsby continues to expand outside of North America.”

“It excites us to continue strengthening our education portfolio and we look forward to demonstrating the power of our new partnership. Combined with our Microsoft Gold partnership, technology excellence and education expertise, our customers can look forward to finding new ways to facilitate their digital transformations,” said Robert Hawley, CEO, SIS Global.
