Press Release: Two Lowell-based companies partner to modernize school system software

[Lowell, MA – January 15, 2024]

Hello K-12 District & Collaborative Administrators & Managers,

Happy New Year!! We have some terrific news we’d like to share with you. SmartEDU has seized on the opportunity to partner with another Lowell-based software company, Draft Studios.

The reason we sought out this help is basically to provide you with the same preferred products you trust, now fortified to meet the latest security standards with long-term reliability. Our collaboration is dedicated to enhancing your experience and ensuring a secure, reliable platform for school districts/Collaboratives and their staff. This will be accomplished through the help of some very talented programmers, graphic specialists and program designers.

We understand that change is oftentimes thought of as a daunting undertaking. However, your seamless experience is our priority, and we are committed to delivering an even more robust and reliable service to support your SmartEDU program needs. Be assured that for the rest of the 2023-2024 school year, SmartEDU program changes will not be noticeable. Our main focus from January to June this year, will be talking to you, our clients, asking “what kind of changes would you like to see in your SmartEDU program?”. We will be collecting input from all of you through discussions and/or surveys to discover “what features you feel are good and necessary”, and also “what program components may need improvement?”. With your input our programs can positively move forward.

Since our company’s beginnings, all of our SmartEDU programs have been created, developed and enhanced through customer input. You will be the ones to help our programs be the best that they can be.

Our partnership with Draft Studios represents a union of experience, innovation, and a shared commitment to advancing K-12 Professional Development Management through technology. Both companies look forward to the positive impact this collaboration will have on our School Districts and Educational Collaboratives.

We value your loyalty as client, and want to thank you by improving our programs in the directions you suggest. We thank you for your part in the past, the present and the future of SmartEDU.

Very sincerely,
Thong Phamduy
