"We could not have lifted SAFARI Montage off the ground in Fulton if it had not been for the support we got from Tim Clark. Since we were tasked with getting over 7,500 teachers and 96,000 students familiar with the system and lots of competing initiatives, we needed to think outside of the box and be creative with the implementation. Tim helped us brainstorm ways to build excitement and advertise the incredible capabilities of the system...[and] develop a face-to-face session that would be fun and engaging for participants."
- Mindy Ramon, Coordinator of IT Training, Fulton County Schools, GA
