CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nuro Retention, the retention software and predictive analytics innovator, announced a new, broader partnership with Canvas by Instructure, the open online learning management system used by 18 million students and teachers at schools, districts, and institutions of higher ed.
The partnership moves Nuro to an Alliance partner status with Instructure. Alliance partners provide integrated technical solutions and complementary services within Canvas. This status enhances Nuro’s ability to seamlessly bring its innovative case management and insightful predictive analytics solutions to a much broader market. The close partnership will allow Instructure clients to adopt more easily Nuro’s innovative SaaS products and reduce the burden on institutional resources.
“We feel this deeper partnership will be of significant benefit to our clients and future clients, as it means the burden of implementing multiple software solutions will be greatly reduced and data will flow seamlessly between both solutions,” said Nuro CEO Tom McNamara. “Ultimately that means schools will have a greater focus on keeping students on track to graduate. The knock-on effects of that will be tremendous, not just for our clients but for society at large.”
Melissa Loble, VP Platform and Partnerships for Canvas, offered praise for the growing company. “We have worked with Nuro for the past year and have been truly impressed with how they use data to identify and help at risk students, and are delighted to expand our partnership. They share our innovative spirit and we see a great future in the partnership for all our respective clients.”
The new partnership arrangement will take effect immediately, with the goal of making big data meaningful and actionable. McNamara added, “As an organization with many ‘first gen’ employees, we are unbelievably motivated to lead the improvement in college completion across the country.”
