No summer slowdown for PassTheNotes

PTNlogoPassTheNotes, a cloud-based platform that makes it easier for teachers and students to collaborate and share content inside and outside of the classroom, announced this week a reseller agreement with Texas-based IT giant NEC Corporation of America that will bring together their technological capabilities, channel partners' sales presence and collaborative tools to provide a complete cloud-based content management solution for schools.  

This agreement will allow PassTheNotes, a Miami-based startup, to provide end-users with a simple, flexible and comprehensive platform, while utilizing several hundred NEC Corporation of America channel partners with thousands of sales representatives across the United States to actively sell in districts nationwide.

 PassTheNotes platform helps school districts meet one-to-one technology goals and advance the digital classroom in a manner that both enriches learning and increases student engagement.  PassTheNotes' cloud-based platform provides a single sign-on solution for today's digital learning needs, said Frankie Coletto, co-founder and CEO of PasstheNotes. "Through our technology, we strive to enhance educational engagement and collaboration in today's digital classroom environment."  

 Last week,  PassTheNotes announced a partnership with Carvechi Technology, a Miami-based technology solutions company. Carvechi Technology’s Collaboratory will aim to improve distance learning, reduce corporate travel expenses, provide quick decision-making tools and reduce time to market by utilizing PassTheNotes’ cloud-based platform. The platform is designed for education and corporate clients to increase engagement and interaction through personalized environments, cross-platform compatibility, video, and other value-add features.

 PassTheNotes, a winner in the 2011 Miami Herald Business Plan Challenge, also announced a partnership with  All Covered, a division of Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. and one of the nation’s leading IT Services companies, on a comprehensive suite of education solutions and IT services designed to help K-12 schools advance technology-based curriculums, comply with educational standards and improve student performance while keeping costs down.
