Supporting educators and enabling change
Education is transitioning to a digital world of virtual apps and distance learning via on-demand e-commerce courseware. Yet the physical world of textbooks and on premise students and miles of campus with classrooms remains a reality that requires upkeep and safe-guarding.
With hundreds of thousands of students and records and hundreds of thousands of visitors in need of directions, an organization’s achievement of purpose can be compromised if not handled responsibly.
GDT empowers educators and administrators and blurs the boundaries between the physical and virtual for improved learning, accelerated student achievement, and automated administrative processes.
GDT converges, simplifies, unifies, virtualizes, analyzes, manages and facilitates collaboration.
