You simply can’t make up a story like this. One to One Plus began in what we refer to as the “meant to be meeting”. The meeting wasn’t planned. Yet, by happenstance two former co-workers (one a school system Director of Technology and the other in the software industry) find themselves in the same room, in the same meeting.
At the end of that meeting, a conversation started about the technology challenges of the school system as they struggled to manage the ever-increasing number of devices, the overwhelming number of work orders and on top of this their first 1:1 deployment of devices to students. Then the “aha” moment. What if they could combine their knowledge and build a software solution to meet these specific needs as they relate to K-12.
From this “what if” moment, other school systems were brought in to advise, consult and help design a software solution that would be spot-on for education. The goal from the beginning was to develop an integrated, affordable, easy-to-use system that would simplify and streamline asset, 1:1, and work order management. Guided by the input of these early-adopter school system professionals, One to One Plus went from a “what if” idea to the national award-winning software it is today.
Some things really haven’t changed much from our early days. Today, you will still find us working together, side-by-side with technology directors, technicians, media specialist, bookkeepers and others to ensure that we meet the ever-changing needs of K-12.
We often look back and ask, “how did we ever get to where we are today?” and then the answer comes.
“Some things are just meant to be”.
