We hope you’ve all had a positive start to 2016. This blog post is all about some of our best bits of 2015 – it’s certainly been a monumental year!
2015 was a landmark year for Penstripe, as we developed, and unveiled, our brand new homework and planning app, PenstripeEdu. Signalling how the Penstripe business is evolving, our new digital product offers a simple yet comprehensive way of helping pupils manage their time and work effectively, as well as allowing teachers to set and monitor tasks. We’re officially launching PenstripeEdu at Bett 2016 – we hope to see you there!
Buying the Penstripe VW camper van
If you didn’t already know, 2015 was the year that we bought our Volkswagen camper van! It started off as bright yellow T2, and now looks VERY different. All will be revealed at Bett…
ICT for Education
Over the past year, we attended a total of five ICT for Education conferences. We’ve travelled up and down the country – to Newcastle, Manchester, London, Birmingham and Newbury – where we listened to many insightful presentations from influential leaders in education technology, watched products being tested, and gave demos of PenstripeEdu to the delegates that attended.
A brand new website for Penstripe!
At the end of December, we launched our brand new website. The new site reflects Penstripe’s brand identity, and gives an insight into our business, our team, and our products. There’s also a shop where you can view each Penstripe product, as well as a page of testimonials that tell you exactly why our customers come back year after year. What are you waiting for – take a look around!
We’d like to say a big thank you to all of our staff for making 2015 such a fantastic year. It wouldn’t have been the year it was without the hard work and co-operation of the Penstripe team.
Now we’re in January, it’s full steam ahead to Bett! Taking place on the 20th– 23rd of January, we’ve got a very unique exhibition stand, with our own Penstripe café bar for you to relax in after walking around the ExCel arena! Plus, there’s going to be lots of exciting things to see and do at stand F90…
