A Letter From the CEO

Thank You to Our Extended currIQūnet Family – Clients, Team Members, Partners and Shareholders

I have been blessed during the course of my professional career to work with and for a number of exceptional individuals on efforts that generated significant value to others and the world we live in. For that I am thankful.

I am most thankful for all you who have participated in the journey that we took upon ourselves nearly three years ago to evolve our company into currIQūnet and develop the META platform. It has been and will continue to be a journey of passion and love for all of us.

The People. I cannot be any more proud of the currIQūnet team in Idaho Falls. Much has been asked of you over the past three years and day in, day out you perform. Thank you is simply not enough for your efforts as each of you regularly go above and beyond my expectations.

The Technology. currIQūnet META is evolving as we had planned into the ecosystem of curriculum management services required in today’s higher education market. We continue to leverage and grow our superior curriculum management expertise, will cultivate our strength in providing assessment solutions and will expand very, very soon into catalog as well as planning solutions with innovation not yet seen in the market.

We will continue all of this while honoring our mantra of “Easier to adopt, learn, use and grow” with significant platform updates every 8-10 weeks; this regular and ongoing evolution of the ecosystem is heavily influenced by our clients – present and future – as well as those on the currIQūnet team who collectively span decades of expertise in curriculum management and higher education.

The Numbers. We have never been stronger. currIQūnet closed 2016 as the best year in company history. This all due to the efforts of the team, the commitment of our clients to the service we provide, the willingness of the higher education community to consider our solution, and our focus on providing higher education with the very best innovative curriculum management ecosystem of solutions.

If the last three years are any indication of the future then I could not be any more excited. I am moved both professionally and personally and wish I could call upon the great writers – Beckett, Wharton, Hemingway and other – to assist me in closing but alas the simplest of words are usually the strongest. . .

Thank you.

Mark Svorinic

Our philosophy of a curriculum centric platform allows us to grow currIQūnet META and offer exceptional value to our clients – today and well into the future.

In the coming months look for advanced assessment capabilities, innovative catalog management, comprehensive curriculum review, sophisticated institutional planning and more to be made available in the currIQūnet META community.

Our goal is simple: “Leverage the work taking place every day in higher education to do more for our clients.”

The transition to our new name, currIQūnet, begins in April 2017.
