Ed-tech product democratizes discovery, evaluation, review, & purchasing into a single, secure platform at no cost

ed-tech-tool3rd Quote, an online community and marketplace that facilitates ed-tech product discovery, research, evaluation, and purchasing into a single, secure platform, announces two major features designed to further empower schools and Edtech providers: Report Card and Budget Planner.

K-12 school technology leaders have a difficult time finding, researching, buying, and reviewing quality Ed-tech products in an efficient manner. 3rd Quote bridges this gap by providing Schools a discovery engine, an automated proposal request system, provider reviews, a collaborative production evaluation tool (Report Card), comparative pricing data, budget planning tool, and real-time data.

Harold Jensen, District Technology Coordinator of Howard-Winnishiek Community Schools in Cresco, Iowa comments, “Once you explained 3rd Quote to me, I was sold. I wish 3rd Quote was available for our outside wireless project. It was tough finding qualified providers.”

Will Nagaj, Technology Service Manager for the Griffin-Spalding County Schools in Griffin, Ga., adds, “I’m always looking for 3 quotes. This is perfect. Wish we had this for our data center. Also, we were just told we have to spend grant money. This is just what we need.”
