Company Summary

We are an educational company founded by teachers looking to bring 21st century technology into the classroom. We have created the WISE app to enable teachers to process and interpret huge amounts of digital data instantly in the classroom from a mobile device. Currently, many schools are stuck using outdated Scantron technology from the 70's with no viable alternative. We hope to revolutionize classroom testing by replacing these machines.
