Michigan’s REMC Association awards Digital Age Technologies, Inc., and Boxlight as providers for Classroom Technology Solutions
Davison, MI, Feb. 13, 2019– Digital Age Technologies, Inc. (DAT), a highly regarded full-service sales and services company in Michigan, announced today that it has been awarded one of Michigan’s REMC SAVE interactive classroom technology contracts, in partnership with Boxlight (Nasdaq: BOXL), a leading provider of interactive technology solutions for the global education market. REMC SAVE is a service of the REMC Association of Michigan on behalf of all Michigan schools. The REMC Association is comprised of 28 local regional educational media centers operated through the intermediate school district structure throughout Michigan.
The contract will be effective January 1, 2019-December 31, 2020. DAT will offer competitively bid and awarded pricing for the complete line up of the award-winning and highly popular interactive teaching technologies including, but not limited to Boxlight’s ProColor 65-inch and 75-inch panels, MimioTeach Bar, MimioBoard, and Mimio Interactive Ultra Short-Throw Projector.
“DAT is excited to be a part of the partnership with Boxlight/Mimio and REMC SAVE. We look forward to working with Boxlight/Mimio to provide the most cost-effective solutions for REMC-eligible agencies,” said Mark Spencer President of DAT.
Members of the committee who awarded DAT the contract noted part of its rationale in doing so was due in no small part to customer choice – that is, educators currently using Boxlight-Mimio products.
“This is a remarkable testament to our products’ level of quality and functionality. It completely validates our objectives of enhancing teaching and learning, encouraging student motivation and participation, and facilitating revolutionary technology integration into classrooms in a cost-effective manner,” said Mark Elliott, Boxlight’s CEO.
Since 1969, the REMC Association of Michigan has provided proactive leadership to the Michigan educational community by participating with other organizations in building a vision that supports quality teaching and learning and provides equity to Michigan’s pre-K-12 students. It consistently accomplished this within the framework of the following principles:
- Improve learning for all students.
- Provide effective cost savings through statewide cooperative purchasing, which allows local resources to be reallocated to enhance teaching and learning
- Support constituents and improve teaching and learning statewide through future-focused collaboration, leadership and service.
- Empower teachers to create high quality, engaging instructional environments when they have access to the necessary skills, tools and rich sources of information.
- Advance statewide connectivity through delivery systems and infrastructure.
