Luidia’s eBeam Technology Comes to 43,000 Classrooms and 72 School Boards Throughout Quebec
SAN CARLOS, CA–(Marketwire – Jan 25, 2012) – Luidia Inc. announced that eBeam technology can now be acquired by approximately 43,000 classrooms and 72 school boards throughout Quebec, increasing the global reach of the company’s technology.
During his fifth inaugural speech on February 24, 2011, Premier of Quebec, Jean Charest, announced an investment of CDN$160 million over the next five years to equip every kindergarten through 12th-grade classroom with interactive whiteboards and other technology products. “Luidia is excited about the opportunity to help carry out the Premier’s mandate to bring new technologies into the classroom for thousands of Quebec students,” said Rafi Holtzman, CEO, Luidia.
Holtzman added, “Many traditional IWB solutions call for complicated implementations with costly modifications to existing suites. Now Quebec schools have the option of safeguarding their existing investments by adopting cutting-edge eBeam technology products, which are not only retrofittable and simple to install, but effective for teachers interested in increasing student participation in the classroom.”
Educational institutions can now purchase eBeam technology through Centre de services partagés du Quebec (CSPQ), the agency responsible for all of Quebec’s government acquisitions. Luidia valued partner and Canadian distributor, Oralys Inc., is designated the official supplier of eBeam technology to Quebec according to CSPQ’s recently published public tender and standing offer agreement for the acquisition of digital interactive boards and other equipment and software.
