Stoneware, Inc., provider of cloud delivery technologies, announced today that it is acquiring LanSchool Technologies, provider of cross-platform classroom management software. By acquiring LanSchool, Stoneware will extend its offerings to be able to provide customers just-in-time management in a BYOD or 1:1 environment.
"The decision to acquire LanSchool is based on two factors. First, their ability to deliver functionality into a key segment of our customer base," said Rick German, CEO and founder of Stoneware. "By leveraging webNetwork and LanSchool, our customers will be able to accelerate the adoption of cloud technologies in the education space. Stoneware understands the value of classroom management, and LanSchool is the de facto winner in that market. With this acquisition, we will be able to revolutionize the 21st century classroom and deliver a consistent learning experience from the client to the cloud."
"Second, the explosion of mobile devices and Bring Your Own Device initiatives across all verticals is driving the need for on-demand management solutions. This solution will not just allow management of the device, but will also provide context-aware services to that device. This will allow users to experience cloud-based resources in the context of the device they are using, allowing for a richer experience."
