Impero’s classroom management and student safety software is now available to districts in Texas and beyond at a discounted rate

Austin, TX, Feb. 4, 2020 – After a vigorous vetting process, the Texas Department of Information Resources (Texas DIR) has added Impero Software to its list of approved vendors for schools in Texas and beyond. This simplifies the purchasing process for schools because they no longer have to request proposals from multiple vendors when considering Impero’s classroom management and student safety software. It also allows them to purchase the products at a discounted rate.

Becoming an approved vendor for the Texas DIR also supports Impero’s growth throughout the country. Forty-three states and the District of Columbia have reciprocal agreements with the state of Texas to buy from the Texas DIR. That means schools in those states can take advantage of the simplified purchasing process and Texas DIR’s discount when purchasing Impero’s products.

“This contract is a huge win for both Impero and for school districts throughout Texas and beyond,” said Michael Watt, Impero’s senior vice president of U.S. sales. “The Texas DIR has high standards and a rigorous vetting process. We are pleased to be added to its list of approved vendors and we look forward to helping more schools get the most out of their technology and safety initiatives while staying within their budgets.”
