About Inkwire

Inkwire is a learning and portfolio platform where teachers and students design and collaborate on authentic learning experiences and showcase their best work. Inkwire’s mission is to help every learner build a great portfolio, full of work that connects them to opportunities beyond the classroom, whether that means admission to their dream university or their next powerful career opportunity.

About the Relationship

After completing their first integration with a popular Identity and Access Management (IAM) provider a few months ago, Inkwire’s founder Aatash Parikh was thinking about how to grow their integration functionality. That’s when Edlink’s Jimmy Louise sent a tailored outreach email to Aatash to spark a conversation. After a few exchanges, Aatash was curious about Edlink and set up a call with Edlink’s Nick La Riza.

During their conversation, Aatash explained Inkwire’s integration needs. Although Inkwire could provide single sign-on and rostering to its users (educators and students) through its current integration, expanding functionality would require significant development time for individual integrations. After learning more about what Edlink could do, Aatash could see how an integration partner could help Inkwire provide new functionality.

“We chose to work with Edlink because not only is it the only solution on the market that streamlines an otherwise very cumbersome process, but the documentation is excellent and the team is extremely responsive and supportive.”
- Aatash Parikh, Founder of Inkwire

With one integration to Edlink, Inkwire can connect to over 25 connections to the most popular LMS, SIS, and IAM providers (e.g., Google Classroom, Aeries, and Clever). And since the most popular IAM providers connect to an education institution’s SIS (just like Edlink), Inkwire can run Edlink’s IAM connections in parallel or connect as a downstream data manager without losing functionality. Edlink would give Inkwire a way to “outgrow” its current integration by providing new integrated features like grade passback and assignment sync with LMS providers, saving hundreds of development hours for Inkwire to reinvest into its core business.

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 from headaches, accelerates time-to-market for operational teams, and helps sales teams win more deals.

Edlink currently supports 100+ edtech companies and helps over 40 million people use their edtech products seamlessly with their school’s LMS, SIS, and identity management platform (like Clever and ClassLink). We’re trusted to exchange sensitive data securely by edtech companies, school IT administrators, and district leaders in over 4,000 educational institutions, and growing.
