Barcelona, July the 12th, 2010. - The Catalan enterprises Clickedu and Qualiteasy have signed an agreement to jointly develop and market a new technology solution for education.

The new technology solution is to be marketed next school year 2010 – 2011 and thanks to this agreement, they expect to double their presence in the next three years, reaching the 50% of the Spanish market.
This business alliance was born in the second edition of the ITworldEdu Summit, that took place in October, 2009. One of the main goals of ITworldEdu is, exactly, to encourage contacts between companies which allow them establishing trade agreements, promote collaborations and join efforts. The new solution will be presented at the third edition of ITworldEdu, the great meeting point between professionals in Education and ICT, to be held in EsadeForum in Barcelona, on October the 27th, 28th and 29th, 2010.
The agreement will allow Clickedu and Qualiteasy generating compatibilities between their tools of educational technology in order to make its implementation and use easier for the user. It will also be part of this agreement a tool from the international company Faronics, a Canada-based Enterprise of which Qualiteasy distributes its products exclusively in the Spanish market.
Thus, this new educational solution will consist of the academic management platform Clickedu, the quality management tool Qualiteasy Edu and the software for classroom control Insight of Faronics.
Given the importance that digital contents have on the School 2.0 model, both companies are establishing collaboration agreements with various publishing houses and content platforms, and these are already available in ClickEdu.
