The Flock is Expanding!
Grackle has initiated a comprehensive tiered Education Partner Program to drive its continued growth in 2020 in K-12 Districts, community colleges and universities. We’re very pleased to announce our range of partner types and the outstanding organizations that have selected Grackle.
Why? Because of our unique market position as the only provider of a solution to check, remediate and create accessible output from G Suite Docs, Sheets and Slides—easy to learn, easy to use—and with ridiculously low cost, budget-barrier free educational pricing.
Google and Grackle announced in 2020 that GrackleDocs has been selected as a partner in the Google for Education Integrated Solutions Initiative. Grackle uses Google Cloud Platform to help the G Suite for Education Accessibility Experience.
The Grackle Suite of Add-ons, developed in Google Apps Script, extends G Suite with an intuitive accessibility solution for education users in all three sectors.
Grackle, integrated with Google Cloud since 2016, advances its close links with G Suite for Education by extending G Suite’s accessibility offerings.
With Grackle Suite’s Add-ons, webmasters, faculty, staff and students can easily check and flag issues, then easily remediate and create accessible output from Google Docs, Sheets and Slides documents to ensure they comply with accessibility standards. As well, Grackle Suite enables the creation of alternative accessible formats such as PDF/UA.
This partnership aims to provide expanded access for California community colleges to increased cost-savings and improved options for value; while providing an expanded breadth of options for education technology as they pertain to accessibility within G Suite.
