Ruvna Joins West Education Ecosystem to Extend Options for K-12 Schools and Districts

Increased deployment choices and single sign-on security included in SchoolMessenger Passport partnership

New York, August 1, 2017— Ruvna today announced it has partnered with West Corporation, a leading provider of communications services, to be part of the West Education Ecosystem.

Ruvna is a real-time safety platform for K-12 schools and districts which enables schools to locate and account for students during emergencies and drills. Ruvna replaces outdated paper/clipboard emergency solutions with intuitive digital crisis attendance, ensuring schools understand exactly which students are safe or in-danger during a crisis/drill.

The West Education Ecosystem program was created to offer organizations a new avenue for piloting, promoting, and deploying web-based education products and services that help solve education stakeholders’ biggest challenges, such as researching, evaluating, and trying new solutions for their schools and districts.

West’s Ecosystem partnership initiative was launched with the release of SchoolMessenger Passport, the school data management, single sign-on and account provisioning product for school districts. Since its launch, the Education Ecosystem has added a wide variety of complementary partners representing different areas of education technology. The program itself has expanded beyond Passport to include other SchoolMessenger family products, reflecting school district preferences and needs.

“We are excited to be integrating our solution into West’s Ecosystem,” said Joey Nutinsky, CEO of Ruvna. “We know that the tens of thousands of schools that have relied on SchoolMessenger solutions since 1999 for notifications, websites, mobile apps, and social media will find our safety platform attractive, especially because of ease of deployment.”

“The West Education Ecosystem reflects innovative and market-leading products, such as Ruvna,” said Carmi Paris, vice president of business development. “We’re pleased to welcome Ruvna to help schools simplify their discovery and use of interesting and effective edtech products.”
