MISSOULA, Mont. — This month, software provider Education Logistics Inc. (EDULOG) hired 20 employees.
EDULOG specializes in logistics and GPS for school districts. Officials said the company is currently one of the largest employers in Missoula, and it has more than 1,000 clients in North America, with a growing presence globally.
“This is a really great time for EDULOG,” President Jason Corbally said. “We’re excited that the demand for our products and services has grown enough that we can expand our staff like this.”
The new staff members are being added in a variety of positions throughout the company, including support, project management, and technical areas like software development.
Corbally said that some of the growth is due to school districts across the country facing budget deficits — they are seeing what EDULOG can do for them.
“Our mission statement is to provide products and services that exceed our clients’ expectations, and to stand behind our products with unsurpassed customer support,” Corbally said. “That dedication is giving them confidence that we’re committed to helping school districts find transportation efficiencies that help save money in operations and move it to the classroom.”
He added that some of EDULOG’s growth can also be credited to the company developing and offering more products and services, including fully integrated GPS and student tracking solutions, on top of its existing routing software and consulting services.
“We’re always innovating,” Corbally said. “Hiring new staff is going to help us continue to do that.”
