The U.S. Department of Education tapped Oakland-based cloud technology outfit FileBank’s ed tech services to store physical documents in its 600,000-cubic-foot archive center known as The Vault, and to then provide digital access through its secure, cloud-based platform.
This partnership furthers FileBank’s growth in the education and government sectors. The company provides ed tech and enterprise content management services to more than 300 schools and municipalities in the region, including the Newark School District and more recently the South Brunswick Board of Education.
In this partnership announced Aug. 25, FileBank will work with the DOE to manage files of the 77 million students enrolled in schools across the country served by the DOE.
“While it is an exciting contract for FileBank, it is also an honor to serve our country through the way we know best… document management,” says Gregory Copeland, president of FileBank in a prepared statement. “Our bespoke solution promises to increase business productivity, organization, efficiency and the management of their crucial documents in a central and secure repository.”
FileBank’s services help schools centralize legal documents and student transcripts, organize department files, free up critical space by storing files in their hurricane-proof and fire-resistant archive center, along with many other services.
FileBank recently announced the hiring of education and technologist Scott Kaufman as the northeast director of business development to support the company’s rapid growth and expand its reach on the East Coast.
