Skoodat today announced that its suite of education applications has been selected as a finalist in the Force.com Forty Innovation Showcase held by salesforce.com.

Force.com Forty finalists were evaluated through a rigorous selection process, including a detailed review of each application and in-person presentations delivered to venture capital firms and salesforce.com executives in San Francisco.

“We are quite honored by this distinction,” noted Ken McElrath, CEO, Skoodat. “Two years ago, salesforce.com issued a challenge to developers to use the Force.com platform to innovate to benefit education. Skoodat was formed just 11 months ago to take on the challenge. Our small team created a disruptive business and innovative suite of applications in less than a year. It’s a credit to our team and to the power of the Force.com platform.”

Built using the Force.com platform, Skoodat apps are immediately available for deployment to schools everywhere from the salesforce.com AppExchange, www.salesforce.com/appexchange. As a salesforce.com Power of Us partner, Skoodat offers limited license donations to qualified schools in conjunction with the salesforce.com Foundation.

“Education customers look to salesforce.com partners like Skoodat to help realize success,” said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer, salesforce.com. “With solutions such as what Skoodat demonstrated during Force.com Forty, educational institutions will have access to innovative enterprise applications that help them run their organizations better.”
