ESA Story

Educational Services of America (ESA) is the leading provider of alternative and special education schools in the US. Partnering with more than 230 public school districts in 21 states to serve 12,000 students each year. ESA have long been using Citrix technology to deliver learning resources to their students, and after discovering Podio they’ve revolutionized the way they run their organization.

It all started with ESA’s CIO, Alan Watson, giving his business analyst, Anthony Stefani, two weeks to look into Podio and see if it could be a viable alternative to the online learning management system they were developing on SharePoint. Three days later Anthony return having built 90 percent of what they were hoping to achieve with SharePoint using Podio Apps. Tough decisions ensued (ESA had already spent $200,000 on their SharePoint project) which resulted in SharePoint being dropped in favor of Podio.

Podio was also able to replace ERA’s SalesForce implementation for CRM. The roll-out of Podio to ESA’s 1500 staff began. Such a deployment would normally be a formidable task. A smaller launch of enterprise social network, Yammer, was a relative failure at ESA with only a handful of employees finding enough value in it to make it part of their everyday work and not just another log-in. The difference with Podio was Podio Apps, giving every ESA employee the ability to structure their workflows and communication exactly how they want to.
