How Clever helps learning applications

Clever turns your complex integrations into great customer experiences. You’ll deliver faster implementations—whether you work with 10 or 10,000 schools—and ensure your application works for every student, every time.

Get started with Clever

Faster contract to class

With Clever, companies see their deployment time shrink from weeks to hours. Faster implementations shrink the time it takes to go from district purchase to student practice.

Strong ROI

By integrating once with Clever, companies avoid needing to build and maintain custom integrations for every district—freeing resources and streamlining operations.

Clean, normalized data

Clever normalizes and maps SIS data for you, while proprietary algorithms transform district data for consistent quality and peace of mind.

We knew that DreamBox's rapid growth required a best-in-class data solution, and that's why we turned to Clever.

What applications are saying


Clever is the only type of request we're getting right now. No API—just 'I want Clever.'

Jeremy Spivey

The thing is Clever simply works. When we query your API, everything just does what it's supposed to do.

Nate Smith
American Reading Company

Thanks to Clever, we don't have to be the experts in every student information system or identity provider districts use. We can focus on our core product.

Scott Harris

With Clever we know when and how we’ll get the data. And the data will be clean, which makes our job easier. We only have to think about one system instead of 10 or 20.

John Franco
Carnegie Learning

I used to spend upwards of 15 hours per district manually grouping teachers and students in Impero. With Clever it literally takes 15 seconds.
