ATLIS Adds Pricing Transparency

ATLIS Data Platform allows members to see peer reviews and the actual prices paid by schools for key technology resources, using LearnPlatform as the analytics engine.

Our platform now gives ATLIS independent school technology leaders a tool to improve educational technology purchasing decisions for both hardware and software purchases. The platform now allows members to access price reports on the products they are considering for first-time purchase or renewal. Members will have access to easy-to-read graphs that provide insight into how other member schools are buying and utilizing edtech. This transparency will allow schools to make better-informed decisions that improve efficiencies and increase cost savings for ATLIS members.

Our portal already allows members to connect with fellow members to compare insights and share best practices. The addition of pricing transparency is a natural next step to help members make informed decisions. Our partnership with LearnPlatform includes all three of the legs of our mission, connecting our members, informing them about available resources, and inviting them to reflect on best practices.

Currently, the platform’s library provides a sample report on iPads and Chromebooks. The library will grow to include pricing information on curriculum and assessment software products as members participate in building this resource.

To collect district pricing data, members share contract and pricing information that ATLIS analyzes – and fully anonymizes – to produce the price reports.

"As a former CFO for schools, I understand how deeply budgets impact equitable access for America’s children,” said Karl Rectanus, co-founder and CEO of the company that built the underlying technology, LearnPlatform. "We are very excited that the TEC Data Platform will provide the relevant information and analysis, so ATLIS members -- new and old, and of any size -- are getting the jump on their 2017-18 budgets."

Access to the ATLIS Platform is limited to members only. ATLIS currently includes more than 100 member schools. A recent presentation about the impact of ATLIS and LearnPlatform for our members can be found here.
