From April 1, 2021, IFCU and SIGNPOST enter into a strategic and complementary partnership

Lokeren-Paris, 7/4/2021

Signpost is the IT partner of the educational sector. In addition to hardware for students and teachers, Signpost also offers Academic Software, a platform that provides more than 500,000 students with bundled offers of the most relevant software. Signpost also develops online learning methods and with Signpost Academy, it has a training center for students and education professionals on the digitization of education and digital tools.

The International Federation of Catholic Universities (IFCU), founded in 1924, brings together 240 universities in 56 countries around the world, with its headquarters in Paris. Its mission is to facilitate cooperation between Catholic universities in research and governance and to help them open up to their environment (local, national and international).

This partnership will build on these two respective expertises to enable responsible digitization in the service of the mission of Catholic universities.

Arne Vandendriessche, CEO Signpost: "The accelerating deployment of digitalization in education is putting more and more pressure on the IT departments of educational institutions. For us, it’s all about supporting institutions in this area. We are therefore very happy about this cooperation with IFCU, which has been a pioneer in the field of digital education for a long time. So it was only a matter of time before we joined forces to share our expertise."

François Mabille, IFCU Secretary General: "The world of higher education is today challenged by profound and rapid mutations; those linked to the 4th industrial revolution ordered in particular around the ICT revolution. As a result, the organization and practices within campuses are profoundly modified. In order to help its member universities adapt to these disruptive changes, IFCU is pleased to announce this new partnership aimed at facilitating exchanges between its members and a dynamic player such as Signpost.
