Saasyan’s cyber welfare solution helps schools safeguard student wellbeing
Sydney, Australia – 15 February 2021 – Leading EdTech solutions developer, Saasyan, has announced an increased adoption of its cyber welfare solutions for schools during the global pandemic. Saasyan has seen the number of schools using its Assure cyber welfare solution more than double in 2020 over 2019.
“With the rapid acceleration of online activity by students; digital citizenship and how students use technology and online tools to engage with others has increased in its importance. At Saasyan, we’ve seen increased adoption of our cyber welfare solutions for schools throughout the global pandemic.
“Across 2020, school leaders from every state and territory in Australia chose to prioritise the online safety of their students. With many students at home due to the lockdowns associated with the pandemic, advice from schools is that online behaviour is having an even greater influence on student wellbeing. Supporting schools to promote digital skills development and promoting safe online usage is vitally important, now more than ever before.” Greg Margossian, Saasyan CEO and Founder
Margossian went on to say, “In response to feedback from schools during the pandemic, we added new capabilities to Assure including the ability to provide enhanced reporting of how students use cloud-based systems including Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. This means that actionable insights into web usage and student wellbeing are now available, regardless of where or how students access these platforms. These additional capabilities were immediately available to schools because Assure is fully cloud-enabled and hosted at Amazon Web Services.”
Saasyan Assure has been implemented in Catholic, Independent and Government schools across Australia. In late 2019, Saasyan successfully secured a six-year contract to supply its cyber welfare software to more than 800 South Australian public schools. This project is rolling out currently. Margossian remarked that “The South Australian Department for Education SWiFT project is progressing well and Saasyan Assure is already assisting teachers, wellbeing professionals and IT staff in many schools across the state.”
