About the Partnership:
As AppCentri continues to grow, the company’s next step was to integrate with ClassLink for single sign-on. But with no in-house development team, AppCentri turned to ClassLink for recommendations and ClassLink introduced AppCentri to Edlink.
At the beginning of the relationship, AppCentri recognized the ability to swap 1 SSO integration to ClassLink for 1 integration to Edlink’s Unified API. With this change, AppCentri would have the ability to SSO with several educational data providers (like LMSs, SISs, and IDMs) rather than just ClassLink alone. AppCentri knew this swap would help them scale more quickly while saving money on development costs.
When asked what was the core reason which made the decision, AppCentri responded:
The ability to work with multiple SSOs from different schools was the deciding factor.

Launched in February 2020, Edlink is the fastest and easiest way to integrate your learning platform with school data systems. Working with Edlink's Unified API saves development teams headaches, gets operational teams to-market faster, and helps sales teams win more deals.
Edlink currently supports 53+ edtech companies and is currently working behind the scenes to help over 23 million students get logged into all the various learning platforms they use, using their LMS (a system students already know!). We’re trusted to exchange sensitive data securely by tech administrators and district leaders in over 2,200 US educational institutions, and growing.
