A three-year-old San Francisco-based startup called Clever is catching on in schools by offering a digital-age solution to all these digital-age problems.

The company announced this week that its application has been adopted by 44,000 schools across the country, or approximately one-third of the nation's public and private schools. It's nearly unique for its services offered; one partial competitor is the nonprofit EdFi Alliance.

"Clever does two things," explains Tyler Bosmeny, co-founder and CEO. "It helps apps integrate with student information systems and gives students and teachers a single sign-on for all of them."

The single sign-on brings convenience; the integration part addresses issues of security and privacy.
