"Students, teachers, district administrators, school leaders, and parents all benefit from Abre's suite of apps and other software tools," said Damon Ragusa, Abre.io CEO. "The Abre Hub has revolutionized education by making all of a classroom's software tools more centralized. This helps school districts save time and money that they can dedicate to directly helping their students. We look forward to continued partnerships with hundreds of schools around the country, bringing them 21st-century software solutions that will provide greater efficiency for teachers and administrators, and a better learning experience for students."
"The educational technology space is fiercely competitive and Abre 'breaks through' in our 2019 EdTech Breakthrough Awards program with a combination of compelling technology and promising momentum in progressing in the education management space," said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. "What sets this company apart from the competition is the Abre Hub and their suite of connected applications. Abre represents a significant step towards streamlining the vast amount of educational technology software used in the classroom. By making software easier to manage, distribute, and use, this frees up time for administrators and teachers to focus on their students."
