A close-up look at Impero at the Bett Show 2019
30th January 2019
Popcorn, a mini movie theatre, a red (well, pink) carpet and our very own film trailer – exclusively featuring a number of Impero staff – were all key aspects of our stand at this year’s Bett Show 2019. One of the biggest education tradeshows in the world, this year Bett proved the perfect opportunity to premiere our new cloud product portfolio, showcasing a number of fundamental changes to our offering, as well as our brand new digital safeguarding system. We received five star reviews from our customers and we had the opportunity to speak to a range of different visitors all looking to improve digital learning at their establishments.
What did we show on the big screen?
Our mini movie theatre was fully booked all week, with regular sessions showing live demos of our new cloud-based solution, Impero Education Pro, and our digital safeguarding system, Impero EdAware. The Internet Watch Foundation delivered a session in our mini cinema, discussing ‘Online Child Sexual Abuse: Trends, Threats and Reponses’, providing an informative talk on what the risks are surrounding child sexual abuse and how schools can best respond to these trends and threats.
We also showed our movie trailer on repeat, designed to help delegates understand our approach to moving to the cloud. You can watch it again here.
Our Solutions Den session
We were delighted to be offered the opportunity to deliver a presentation on a best practice approach to holistic safeguarding, centred on bridging online and offline concerns for a complete picture of student wellbeing. The session was really well attended and we received great feedback, with many delegates popping over to our stand to find out more about how our solutions could support them.
Our new product offering
Over the past year, we’ve been working hard to deliver a cloud version of our flagship product, Impero Education pro. At Bett this year, we were proud to officially launch the Impero Education Pro C series, complete with a new web-based interface, designed with simplicity in mind. Find out more about the benefits and book a demo here.
Our new digital safeguarding system, Impero EdAware, was also premiered at this year’s Bett Show 2019. Specially designed to simplify the recording and management of safeguarding concerns in an education setting, Impero EdAware empowers schools and MATs to monitor and audit their safeguarding practices, and track safeguarding concerns in a central record; this helps to flag early warning signs, enable informed intervention and ultimately keep students safe. You can find out more and request a free trial here.
The Bett Awards
Once again, we were delighted to be shortlisted for two Bett Awards this year and even more delighted to be awarded with ‘Highly Commended’ in the Whole School Aids for Teaching and Learning. Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners!
We’ve already got lots of ideas for next year, so stay tuned!
