We know the education software business
Edsby is brought to you by CoreFour Inc. The Edsby team has been building scalable, reliable software systems for education for over 20 years and includes the founders and architects of FirstClass, a messaging and collaboration product used by thousands of schools and school districts around the world. Our close relationships with these education customers over the past two decades have given us many great insights into the problems faced every day by teachers, students, parents and administrators. This in turn gave us the inspiration to build on these insights to create something completely new for schools, based on the very latest in software technology, techniques and standards.
We believe in integration, not duplication
Edsby has been designed from day one to fit seamlessly into the existing back end solutions that schools and districts already have installed. Whether it’s your student information system, your authentication server or your report card system, Edsby can integrate smoothly and provide maximum benefit with minimum hassle. For our part, we stay on top of the trends to make sure that Edsby works with as many systems as possible.
We’re experts at building successful software systems
We understand technology. We have a proven track record of building extremely fast, scalable and reliable systems that work for anything from a small private school to large urban school districts with hundreds of thousands of students and teachers.
We also like to build software that people love to use. This comes through careful attention to crafting the user experience to make the product intuitive and easy to learn for new users. At the same time we design our software so that the experienced user can quickly and easily accomplish an amazing range of tasks very quickly.
We’re good at listening
We have a pretty good understanding what educators need. Some of that comes from our two decades of working with educators. But we’re never satisfied, so since starting work on Edsby we’ve added to our insights by interviewing scores of teachers, administrators, students and parents to understand their issues, needs, challenges and constraints. We’re big believers in continuous improvement, so we maintain an open dialog with our users through online discussions, regional user group meetings, and web conferences. Every bit of feedback we get helps us build a better product.
