From an EdTech perspective, it is apparent that providers have been slow to adopt new technology available in order to get the best products to end users, unlike in the other industries listed above.
They have chosen to build on top of old tech, instead of developing new and becoming innovators, shying away from taking the higher risks even though there should be a better outcome for customers.
However, WCBS has changed this. That’s why our HUB products are at the beginning of the curve.
Benefits of being at the front of the curve
Does this mean that our customers are taking a risk being an innovator?
The EdTech market can well and truly be classified as established, but with multiple businesses offering different products or services, providers should not (a) still be building on old tech instead of investing in new and (b) skewing towards the majority, inevitably state schools’ market, rather than the minority, independent schools’ needs.
Because we have built HUB from the ground up, we’ve been able to take the risk out of investing in our products by offering free trials of our new tech. Independent schools now can try before they buy, and make sure they are at the front of the curve for absolutely ZERO RISK.
WCBS knows of course that leaders of independent schools are well versed in what tech has to offer in the wider world and are right to expect it for their professional use. This is why we really look forward to them discovering for themselves how innovative our cloud native products are, then welcoming them as our customers
