WEEHAWKEN, NJ, September 26, 2006 — ClassLink, Inc., a leading technology provider for kindergarten through grade 12 classrooms, today announced the introduction of ClassLink ClassSyncTM, a new software tool that synchronizes a school’s Active Directory user list to its Student Information System.

“ClassSync automatically does all the matching, deleting, and adding of users that the IT team currently does manually. It’s a tremendous time saver.” said Berj Akian, CEO of ClassLink, Inc. “We believe ClassSync will revolutionize user-list management, and make life much easier for the IT team, especially during the hectic back-to-school time period.” ClassLink has a proven record of delivering high quality technology solutions designed to meet the unique needs of the K-12 instructional setting.

Unlike existing mass import tools in the marketplace, ClassLink’s ClassSync does not just create new accounts year after year. It synchronizes the full Active Directory schema to the Student Information systems data. Therefore, ClassSync can identify bad log-in accounts, correct missing information in Active Directory, and fix the Organization Unit (OU) paths from an easy to use interface. ClassSync is compatible with Windows 2000 Active Directory and above and can be used an unlimited number of times during the school year, as needed, to keep the Active Directory user list updated.

Pricing and Availability

Available immediately, the ClassSync annual subscription is $1,415 for schools with enrollments of up to 3,000 students, with tiered pricing for schools with greater enrollments. Additional ClassSync product information can be found online at www.classlink.com or by calling 1-888-963-7550.
