Atlona is strengthening its support and partnerships in the K-12 and higher education markets through its new Atlona Education Program (AEP).
The offering “will simplify how K-12 and higher education institutions acquire, implement, manage and maintain AV technology solutions on campus,” according to an Atlona press release announcing the program.
Atlona has promoted former southeast regional sales manager Joel Carroll to the newly created position of business development manager of education markets. He’ll oversee the AEP.
The AEP “was created to partner with education technology managers, instructors and administrators and give them the inside edge they seek” with Atlona technology and services, according to the Atlona press release. AEP partners “will take advantage of many exclusive benefits, including dedicated training, design and support,” according to the announcement, making Atlona “the go-to resource to help them navigate the ever-evolving AV solutions that benefit campus-wide classroom instruction, collaboration and support.”
“We know K-12 schools, colleges and universities are increasingly looking to adopt new technologies and concepts to create collaborative teaching environments,” said Carroll in the Atlona press release. “Atlona’s recent innovations for the education market were born from listening to our customers and their needs.”
This includes the introduction of Atlona’s HDVS product line and Velocity cloud-based control system and UHD-SW-510W BYOD solution, said Carroll.
Carroll will focus on bringing new education customers into the AEP and “work closely with them to navigate the trends and opportunities taking shape in K-12 and higher education learning environments,” according to the release.
Other AEP member benefits include an AEP hotline, preferred pricing and an opportunity to earn EduPoints redeemable for evaluation products and personalized training at Atlona’s headquarters.
In addition to bringing customers into the AEP, Carroll will directly communicate with customers who sign up for the program.
“We are excited to launch the AEP program at a time when disruptive technologies are changing the way that students, instructors and administrators communicate across learning environments,” said Atlona CEO and co-founder Ilya Khayn.
