About Pearl:

Pearl is an all-in-one tool to help educators manage and grow their businesses in the new hybrid learning environment. Starting as a scrappy in-person tutoring company, Pearl has transformed into a company by tutors for tutors. It aims to build the best tools for tutors so that they can improve even more student outcomes.  

About the relationship:

Pearl needed robust integration features and connect to common LMS, SIS, and IDMs in K12 and higher ed. So, Pearl hired an external consultant to find and evaluate valid solutions fairly. That’s when Pearl noticed Edlink.

In the end, the third-party consultant recommended another, cheaper tool. But Pearl chose Edlink – feeling that Edlink's customer service and tech were incomparable. Now with one connection to Edlink’s Unified API, Pearl has access to:

  • SSO,
  • rostering,
  • content integration,
  • grade passback, and
  • over 20 educational data providers (LMSs, SISs, and IDMs).
“When it comes to choosing partners, we look to work with teams who are incredibly knowledgeable about their space and passionate about their mission. The Edlink team knows more about data integrations than anyone we have spoken to and are clearly passionate about the impact they are bringing to the edtech space. They also just so happen to be an amazing group of people who we truly enjoy solving some of education's largest problems with. ”
John Failla, Founder and CEO of Pearl
