Education & Technology
Coming up with technology solutions for your education institution can be an incredibly difficult and time-consuming process.  Deciding which platform is right takes a lot of time, effort and money.  Once you do make that decision and eventually have the finished product ready for public use, it can be even more difficult to gain adoption from your students, faculty and staff.  It is important to have a plan for both implementation and adoption from the start.  In this newsletter, you will find articles that provide insight into what other institutions like yours are doing as well as walk you through the steps to gain adoption of new technologies at your institution.  At B2B Technologies, we believe in the power of solid technology solutions and we strive to help education institutions like yours realize how that power can lead to success.

Take Care,
B2B Technologies
