When Capstone Digital wanted to promote myON™ reader, it turned to the BLEgroup and its education technology practitioners to promote the solution.

The BLEgroup works with schools and ed-tech companies to support the development, marketing and adoption of digital teaching, learning and management products. To that end, they offer expert panels that provide opportunities to learn more about product research, product development, go-to-market strategies and whitepapers that help explain its clients’ products to district leaders.

After launching in January 2011, myON has received 10 industry awards and honors, including "Most Likely to Succeed in the Education Market" from the Software and Information Industry Association’s Innovation Incubator Program.
