About the relationship:

EmpowerU’s Sarah Porisch sought a better way to manage their integration strategy. After hiring a developer consultant for their LTI 1.3 specification integration to Schoology, she found the solution unreliable and unsustainable for future integrations. In her search for alternatives, Sarah found Edlink and reached out for validation.

Sarah discussed EmpowerU’s reality with Edlink’s Amanda Goodson and compared Edlink to hiring future consultants. With an upcoming integration planned in two months, the team had to decide between building an Edlink integration or continuing with their Brightspace development (read: hiring another developer consultant).

EmpowerU chose to integrate with Edlink’s Unified API, to gain connections to top LMS and IAM providers (e.g., Brightspace, Google Classroom, Clever). When asked about integrations, EmpowerU’s sales team can just say, “yes” and close more deals faster than before. EmpowerU can prevent overspending on their connections by not hiring developer consultants and using Edlink to seamlessly manage their current and future integrations.

“I am impressed that Edlink works with EVERY [major] platform and that the team seems to be willing and excited to work through anything that may come up. I am so happy that we can now tell our account that we can link with an SSO/LMS without hesitation.”
- Sarah Porisch, Director of Technology and Data at EmpowerU Education
