Nottingham, UK, 8th February, 2022 – Impero, the safeguarding software provider, is delighted to announce it is now a recognised Microsoft Global ISV Partner, a move that will accelerate innovation and increase value for its global customers. Impero is the only classroom management and student wellbeing provider that has earned Global ISV status, and one of only eight Microsoft partners to earn Global ISV status.
Becoming a Microsoft Global ISV Partner unlocks exclusive technical, marketing and sales enablement resources for Impero, enabling the organisation to enhance the development and promotion of its cutting-edge classroom management, remote access, and safeguarding software. Impero is also the only supplier in the classroom management market that is fully embedded with Microsoft Teams.
“Educators all around the world are contending with the biggest shift in teaching that we have ever seen, rapidly moving to remote and hybrid models.

“Combining Microsoft’s technology and global foothold with Impero’s specialist education expertise creates the perfect solution to support teachers with this new hybrid classroom model. With this latest step in our journey, we will continue to leverage Microsoft’s vast investment in expanding into new regions, including Latin America and Australia.”
The newly announced Global ISV support will help Impero reach more customers globally and deliver strategic digital transformation programs for even more schools worldwide.
