No Child Held Back and MiniFrame Announce Collaboration to Allow US Schools to Get a Cost Saving Computers for Any Teacher and Student
New York, NY, October 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- No Child Held Back and MiniFrame announce that they will be collaborating together to bring MiniFrame’s SoftXpand software to school districts nationwide. The SoftXpand software allows multiple users to share one computer. This will bring a great cost savings to school systems across the nation and is one of the cornerstones of No Child Held Back’s mission. Using just four computers and the SoftXpand software will be enough to educate 32 students. The cost savings to the school systems will be enormous and allow them to divert funds to other critical areas. This will help many school systems who often complain that a lack of funds forces them to choose between either computers for students or teacher’s salaries and other educational programs.
“We are delighted to be teaming up with MiniFrame to help school systems to have a cost-efficient way to educate their students using computers,” said Yovel, of the No Child Held Back Consortium. “The savings that school systems will incur when using the SoftXpand software will allow them to reinvest that money in teacher’s salaries and other programs that will provide an enhanced and improved education for students.”
“We are excited to be working with No Child Held Back,” said Raz Rafaeli, CEO of MiniFrame. “Our cutting edge software can be applied to any computer at any school system, anywhere in the United States. Using SoftXpand software in a classroom with 32 students in a fraction of the cost of any other alternative is an ideal cost saving solution which is affordable to any school in the US.”
SoftXpand software turns any simple Windows PC to a multi-seat system that allows up to eight users to logon and work at the same time. The SoftXpand technology allows students to work simultaneously, independently and seamlessly while relying on a single computer, without the need for an expensive server and the associated high IT costs. With many school systems unable to afford computers for all of their students, the SoftXpand software provides every student with access to a computer without the school systems having to go over budget and actually provides a tangible cost savings for school systems.
The No Child Held Back Consortium tackles and offers solutions on such issues as parent and student empowerment, increasing course variety, utilizing technology, and most importantly revisiting and redirecting the role of the education system. Without common sense approaches to education that allow our students to learn, the American Dream will become the American Myth to many students. The No Child Held Back Consortium offers this. The No Child Held Back Education Innovation Grant is the latest effort to make the American Dream a reality for American students.
MiniFrame is a leading player in the multiuser market. The company develops and markets its SoftXpand software technology that enables multiple users to share a single computer simply by connecting additional sets of monitors, keyboards and mice. SoftXpand products provide top-performance and cater both Home users and Business customers.
