“Junyo’s primary mission is to improve teaching and learning through the
use of data to inform and ultimately improve instruction. EdLights is a critical first step in achieving this objective,” said Steve Schoettler, founder and CEO of Junyo and former co-founder and employee number one at Zynga “EdLights delivers all of the functionality one would expect in a modern business tool and directly addresses the needs of companies selling to schools at both a corporate and individual salesperson level. By enabling a targeted, informed approach for publishers and suppliers, we’re helping to ensure that the right resources are getting to the students and teachers that need them.”
EdLights’ product suite enables Junyo to support all levels of sales, marketing and customer-management activity within the K-12 environment. EdLights Prospector is the flagship product and the world’s first K-12 market intelligence tool designed specifically for the needs, budgets and mobility requirements of individual sales representatives. EdLights File Service is for corporate environments and provides Prospector’s deep marketplace data plus additional subcategories in a convenient CSV file format that companies directly upload into their CRM systems.

“There has never been a better time to leverage the power of data to improve the K-12 system. In addition to getting schools the right resources, EdLights helps publishers and suppliers increase their productivity and close more sales more quickly,” said Wayne Poncia, vice president of business development at Junyo. “As it stands today, the K-12 public education system delivers the lowest ROI of any U.S. industry. We firmly believe that EdLights will help change that.”
