Frontline Technologies Acquires Professional Development Content Provider EDTRAININGCENTER
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — January 6, 2016. Frontline Technologies has acquired EDTRAININGCENTER, an online training provider for the K-12 education community. EDTRAININGCENTER is a cloud-based professional development resource that will expand the reach of Frontline’s professional growth and applicant tracking solutions through vetted content.
As a leading provider of online training and professional development to the K-12 industry, EDTRAININGCENTER’s education resources allow school districts to make the most of their professional development programs, maximizing time and efficacy. Focusing on student objectives first to create a curriculum rooted in best practices, EDTRAININGCENTER’s trackable, flexible and targeted learning modules are designed to affect student outcomes from the start.
“The acquisition of EDTRAININGCENTER allows us to further immerse ourselves in the success of our professional growth customers following the May 2015 acquisition of MyLearningPlan,” said Frontline President and CEO Tim Clifford. “EDTRAININGCENTER’s dedication to providing educators with best-in-class content aligns with our vision of serving the education community through integrated K-12 software solutions.”
Through last year’s acquisition of MyLearningPlan, Frontline Technologies now offers industry-leading professional development resources including professional growth management, evaluation and custom learning modules. The acquisition allows Frontline to incorporate EDTRAININGCENTER’s premium K-12 educator content into comprehensive professional development and applicant tracking solutions, including onboarding, state-mandated and compliance training that impact the entire teacher lifecycle.
Through the acquisition, Frontline Technologies is able to leverage professional growth content resources internally rather than referring to an external content provider, offering a more integrated solution to educators. Incorporating EDTRAININGCENTER’s high-quality content into the MyLearningPlan and AppliTrack systems benefits districts and educators by providing applicable training that has a measurable impact in the classroom and during the onboarding process.
“Frontline Technologies is rapidly emerging as a leader in professional growth for educators,” said EDTRAININGCENTER CEO Rachel Fisher. “Delivered through Frontline’s progressive K-12 education solutions, the nationally-recognized content and resources that EDTRAININGCENTER has developed to train more than 200,000 teachers nationwide will continue to serve educators well going forward.”
Frontline Technologies offers the broadest-reaching set of solutions in the K-12 education market, providing professional growth and HR software to well over 6,000 school districts nationwide. Bolstered by the very recent definitive agreement to acquire Teachscape, Inc., Frontline’s strong and rapidly growing market position is coupled with premier client services and support, featuring a customer retention rate over 97% across all products.
