Frog Wins the BETT Award for ICT Provider of the Year

We're incredibly excited to announce that FrogTrade UK proudly took home the title for ICT Provider of the Year at the 15th annual BETT Awards 2013 held in London. 

Organised and managed by i2i Events Group and BESA (The British Educational Suppliers Association), the BETT Awards are considered to be the most prestigious in the education sector where recognition is given for ICT excellence by honouring outstanding resources and learning solutions developed by educational suppliers worldwide.  
As the developer of the Frog Virtual Learning Environment  (Frog VLE), FrogTrade UK was recognised for the innovation and quality of its virtual learning platform that over 10,000 government schools in Malaysia are currently being equipped with under the 1BestariNet project by the Ministry of Education and FrogAsia of the YTL Group

This marks Malaysia as the first nation in the world to equip all its schools with an integrated learning solution comprising of the cloud-based Frog Virtual Learning Environment (Frog VLE) and 4G Internet connectivity.

Caroline  Wright, director of BESA and chair of judging, said, “Despite  schools  now realising that they do  have  strong  available  budgets, teachers are  becoming  more shrewd in assessing the  aptness  of products  for their specific needs. Products therefore need to  be  of the highest standard to  ensure  that, aside from the  initial purchase  price, the total cost of ownership is low. This is what the  judges  have  identified;  products that offer the highest quality and are fit for purpose.  These  Bett Award finalists  are  certainly companies that schools can safely consider to be amongst the best available.”

On winning the award, Gareth Davies, Managing Director of Frog, said, “We are absolutely delighted to have won the BETT Award for ICT Company of the Year! We are always developing new innovative solutions, but no matter how big the company gets, we will always stay close to our customers.”

He continued, “We have had a brilliant year at Frog, and it’s great to be recognised with such a prestigious award. But the work doesn’t stop here. We have so many exciting things coming up, like the launch of our new learning platform for tablets and the work with I Am Learning. It’s going to be another great year – watch this space!”
