Clifton, NJ – August 8, 2017 – ClassLink, the leader in single sign-on, class rostering, and access management, has been named the ‘Best K-12 Enterprise Solution of 2017′ at the annual SIIA CODiE Award Celebration. CODiE Award recipients are the companies producing the most innovative Business and Education technology products across the country and around the world.
Empowering students and teachers with instant access to their learning resources, ClassLink® LaunchPad includes a library of over 5,000 single sign-on apps and instant links to file folders at school and on Google, Office 365, and Dropbox cloud drives.

ClassLink with OneRoster™ easily and securely delivers class rosters to any publisher using open technology standard, such as OneRoster™ from IMS Global Learning Consortium. Included with the ClassLink Suite, ClassLink Analytics gives decision makers the usage data they need.
A SIIA CODiE Award is a prestigious honor as each winner was reviewed by educators and administrators, whose evaluations determined the finalists. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and their votes were combined with the scores from the industry experts to select this year’s CODiE Awards winners.
“SIIA’s 2017 Education Technology CODiE Award winners were an amazing group this year, and demonstrated how these technologies are making an impact for students, faculty and administration,” said Bridget Foster, senior vice president and managing director of the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN) of SIIA. “Each honoree deserves accolades and we are pleased to add our congratulations to all of this year’s CODiE Award winners.”
Berj Akian, ClassLink CEO, responded to the selection, “CODiEs are a peer-reviewed award program that holds entrants to high standards. We’re humbled by the positive feedback from experts around the country during the review process.” Akian continued, “It’s heartwarming to be selected as the Best K-12 Enterprise Solution because it’s our mission to support all stakeholders in education – students, teachers, administrators, and all the great vendor partners they choose. ”
ClassLink uses open technology standards to provide single sign-on (SSO) into thousands of digital resources for education. ClassLink charges no fees to these providers helping them avoid assessing schools with unnecessary fees. ClassLink’s approach to open standards is increasingly the direction instructional technology leaders around the world are headed.
The winner announcement was made by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, during the annual Education Impact Symposium in San Francisco.
