Leading education technology provider Frog has announced it will be changing its name from Frogtrade to Frog Education.
The new name, the first since the company began in 1999, will seek to better reflect Frog’s 15 year evolution from technology provider to education solutions specialist.
The name change will be officially unveiled at Frog’s annual conference on 24th June in Birmingham, where visionary education leaders will speak about some of the biggest issues facing schools today.
The announcement has come at an exciting for Frog, with the company having recently been awarded a place in the inaugural Sunday Times PA Consulting Inward Investment Track Ones to Recognise. The Fast Track award, supported by UK Trade & Investment, highlighted 20 up-and-coming foreign backed, mid-market businesses across the UK.
Used by over 12million students, teachers and parents worldwide, Frog works with schools to use technology to improve performance and personalise the learning journey of every child.
Commenting, Gareth Davies, Managing Director at Frog, said:
“For the last 15 years, Frog has been providing world-class technology to the education market under the trading name, Frogtrade. This name does not fairly reflect the customers we service or the products and services we provide.
“Our technology is a tool which is integrated into the culture and ethos of each of our schools, improving every aspect of the learning and teaching experience.
“To better reflect this offering, we are changing our trading name to Frog Education. We will still be calling ourselves ‘Frog’, but for any instances where our trading name is required, we will be now known as Frog Education.”
