The Book Manufacturers’ Institute (BMI) released the July results for its monthly survey on capacity and lead times for soft cover and hard cover books. As demand has skyrocketed and supply chain woes continue to hamper all segments of manufacturing, BMI put together the survey to get a better idea of what manufacturers were facing and what publishers should expect. July started to show a little easing in the space. According to responses regarding hard cover books, the average manufacturer was running at 84% of their capacity, down from June’s 90%. The average lead time for completed hard cover books dropped a whole month, going from 104 days to 74 days. For soft cover books, capacity usage stayed at 91% and the average lead time dropped from 84 days to 56 days, based on 16 responses.
Savvas Learning Company, a K-12 next-generation learning solutions leader, is proud to announce that its Savvas Realize learning management system (LMS) has received the 2022 Supes’ Choice Award from the Institute for Education Innovation, a national school superintendent think tank. Savvas Realize, the K-12 education industry’s most innovative LMS, was honored as the “best of the best” in the Learning Management System category.
The Supes’ Choice Awards, which recognize the trailblazers and visionaries in today’s rapidly growing edtech industry, are the only edtech industry awards judged exclusively by school district superintendents. Winners in the award program’s 14 categories are selected based on their commitment to student outcomes, innovation and ingenuity, client support, interactivity, and engagement.
“We are honored to receive this Supes’ Choice Award from the Institute for Education Innovation, as it demonstrates the impact of Savvas Realize in helping to make personalized learning more effective for students while optimizing classroom instruction time for teachers,” said Bethlam Forsa, CEO of Savvas Learning Company. “What makes this award so meaningful to us is that school district superintendents recognize the value of Savvas Realize as a robust platform that meets all of a district’s needs, from central office tools to classroom curriculum.”
Savvas is showcasing its game-changing Savvas Realize LMS to thousands of educators at the national 2023 Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC) this week in New Orleans. Attendees can visit Savvas at Booth #2817 to learn more about the Savvas Realize platform and other new innovative products.
The school district leaders who served as Supes’ Choice Award judges called Savvas Realize a “powerful platform” with “strong integration” that “provides ease of management across the district.”
“Realize’s interoperability is crucial to [school] systems that are in digital initiative overload,” the superintendents said. “Anything that supports clarity and coherence among educators and rolls up to the district for feedback loops is critical. Having a single vertical integration will provide central administration with a clearer view and simplify experiences for end-users.”
