Coupling together a leading edge, document management platform with a small-town, friendly customer service mentality, Belleville-based tech firm clevr is on the precipice of exponential growth.
From front-line teachers to school board administrators, clevr helps all levels of the education system manage their information in a way that is revolutionary, while allowing them to continue operating as they normally would.
“It’s intuitive and very user friendly. We listen to what the client’s needs are and then build the data collection workflow to fit those needs. We don’t create a solution and then expect everyone to conform to it,” said clevr’s founder Darryl Denyes.
Each solution is created specifically for the needs of the individual board, meaning they don’t have to make massive changes to their document creation process or workflow.
Denyes said that there’s a unique understanding his team brings to the table as folks who have worked in smaller rural school boards—in his case, Hastings-Prince Edward—that allows them to foster a powerful connection with educators across four provinces.
“It’s our ability to understand the unique needs of every client and then put a solution in front of them that works like they’ve always worked.”
