WASHINGTON (05/23/2000) - Two education technology companies - one specializing in academics, the other in administration - have partnered to integrate their systems. Datatel Inc. and Eduprise will share their expertise in marketing and technology to jointly develop administrative system interfaces to electronic learning platforms for higher education institutions.
Datatel will also offer its clients Eduprise's e-Learning planning, development and implementation services.Shahron van Rooij, director of product marketing at Datatel, said there is no timeline for when the systems would be integrated.
The partnership was announced May 17. "The objective is to ensure that institutions are able to have academic and administrative technology without forcing them to go to two vendors," van Rooij said."For the institutions, it's one-stop shopping with academics and administration in one," van Rooij said.
