Education companies join to integrate services

Two education technology companies — one specializing in academics, the

other in administration — have partnered to integrate their systems. Datatel

Inc. and Eduprise will share their expertise in marketing and technology

to jointly develop administrative system interfaces to electronic learning

platforms for higher education institutions.

Datatel will also offer its clients Eduprise's e-Learning planning, development

and implementation services.Shahron van Rooij, director of product marketing

at Datatel, said there is no timeline for when the systems would be integrated.

The partnership was announced May 17. "The objective is to ensure that institutions

are able to have academic and administrative technology without forcing

them to go to two vendors," van Rooij said."For the institutions, it's one-stop

shopping with academics and administration in one," van Rooij said.

Datatel, headquartered in Fairfax, Va., specializes in administrative technology

software for educational institutions. Eduprise, based in Research Triangle

Park, N.C., provides application service provider services and World Wide

Web integration for e-learning programs.
