d6 Technology and Principal Software are joining Forces

We are pleased to announce that the education divisions of both Principal Software and d6 Technology have officially joined forces to set the standard for innovation in school management. As of 1 March 2017, the two companies will create a new brand called d6 education and will service more than 2,500 schools across South Africa and abroad.

d6 education is all about assisting schools to be more effective and will provide schools with comprehensive consultation through various training initiatives, innovative solutions through the use of technology and most importantly, quality support and guidance. d6 education’s comprehensive consultation will give schools access to a range of training initiatives including compliance (specifically SA-SAMS related), financial management and budgeting.

Our innovative technology consists of proudly South African developed products including the well known d6 School Communicator, a comprehensive communication tool between the school and its parents, and also Principal+, a fully integrated cloud based school administration, curriculum, finance and communication system.

Together these two products support our more than 2,500 schools throughout South Africa and abroad. We are excited about the opportunities to accelerate our leadership in the fast-growing next-generation Education market. Our companies already share many customers and business partners, and we intend to enhance and expand these essential relationships.

Existing clients of both d6 Technology and Principal Software will continue to enjoy the products they are currently making use of and will now have access to our extraordinary portfolio of additional products and services.

We are dedicated to maintaining and increasing the quality of innovation, support, and service that you have come to expect from both d6 Technology and Principal Software. With a dedicated account management team across South Africa, we will make sure that we continue to focus on improving our products and services to schools.

Both Principal Software and d6 Technology are very grateful to our partners and customers for their support and loyalty, and we greatly appreciate the relationship. Looking forward to continuing our contribution towards #effectiveschools.

Yours sincerely,
