Solutions and Implementation Partners
We support our solutions partners to learn how to implement, train and support Schoolbox in your schools and customers, leaving you skilled in best practice, consulting and training. This is a mutually beneficial relationship. Solutions partners provide implementation, support, consulting and training services directly to schools using Schoolbox to ensure our schools get more value and experience success from Schoolbox.
Benefits to solutions partners
You will be listed on our website partners page.
Our public endorsement of your company on our website can generate leads for your business. Additionally our sales teams are aware of our partners and are often sharing information and sales leads for you to develop into new business opportunities.
We support partners via access to our support team. You can utilise our support services on behalf of your customers and your company at no charge. This is by simply visiting our Help Centre or through our support team.
Where you already have a relationship at a school and that school implements Schoolbox, we are happy to allow you to send members of your team into the training sessions to build their knowledge both of our training services and the content we teach within these sessions. Also, if we provide additional training to existing shared customers then we are happy for you to be present. Alternatively, if you would like us to conduct formal training to staff we would be happy to provide full/half day training at our regular rates.
First to know
You will be subscribed to receive the emails we send our customer administrators. This ensures you are included in product updates, invitations to our meetups, release notes for both minor weekly releases and major releases.
We will also get feedback from our clients on the services provided by our partners and based on this we may in the future implement a ranked partner system (bronze/silver/gold) to reward partners who are able to demonstrate the most value to our customers.
Integration partners are those that have had their technology integrated into Schoolbox. This typically includes school management systems, student information systems, open standards, content and media providers, 3rd party applications, authentication standards, file transfer protocols, timetable systems and reporting applications.
Application development partners
If you would like to develop an application to extend the Schoolbox platform through our API we would welcome an opportunity to discuss your concepts and ideas. Generally we would support application development partners to ensure that their implementation is created on best practise principles. Such applications might include native mobile applications, reporting systems or any platform you believe would positively extend the Schoolbox platform.
