Bretford® Earns Four Best of Show Awards at ISTE

Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.®, a U.S. manufacturer of technology-enabled furniture for learning and business environments, today announced that four of its newest education-focused products earned coveted Tech & Learning Magazine’s Best of Show Awards earlier this month at ISTE 2014. Bretford was the only manufacturer to receive four separate product awards.

Tech & Learning named 34 products as winners in its first ISTE Best of Show Awards. More than 70 products were submitted by exhibitors at the ISTE conference, which took place in Atlanta June 29-July 1. The winning Bretford products include PureCharge™ Carts and Stations for iPad, Core™ 36M Charging Cart for Chromebooks, Juice® Power System and PowerSync+™ App.

“To have four technology-enabled furniture products win awards speaks volumes about the value the education market places on the equipment that greatly expands what is possible with technology both inside and outside of the learning environment,” said Cindy Weinschreider, director of marketing communications for Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. “We are grateful to Tech & Learning for shining a spotlight on the furniture, which empowers the technology to be controlled remotely, stored safely, charged quickly and much more.”

Tech & Learning advisors scoured the show floor on the first day of ISTE, investigating the latest and greatest announcements from the participating vendors. The judges rated their impressions on a sliding scale, then met to decide on which technologies could have the most impact in the classroom and deserved to be named Best of Show.

About the ISTE Best of Show Winning Bretford Entries

  • PureCharge Carts and Stations for iPad and iPad mini. An affordable, easy-to-use iPad charging option that does not require users to add power adapters or cables. By offering the convenience of pre-installed Lightning cables, the PureCharge products are ready right out of the box, with minimal set-up time and no additional costs. The new family includes carts that hold 20 or 40 iPad or iPad mini devices, and stations that hold 10 or 20 iPad or iPad mini devices.
  • Core 36M Charging Cart for Chromebooks. A 36-unit charging cart optimized for the growing use of Chromebooks, yet versatile enough to also support most tablets, laptops/hybrids and ultrabooks used in schools. Encompasses a small footprint and an affordable price point. It uses polypropylene dividers that protect the devices from being scratched, a digital timer to efficiently charge 36 devices and operates on a single 15-amp wall circuit.
  • Juice Power System. The world’s first easy-to-use modular power system with exchangeable power components. The system uses “Juice Connectors™,” – or magnetic connections – that allow anyone to easily and safely connect and disconnect power when reconfiguring tables for modular classrooms, collaboration spaces, training rooms, think tanks or anywhere mobile devices are used.
  • PowerSync+ App. For use with the world’s first app-enabled charge and sync products, which include PowerSync® 40- and 20 unit carts and a 20-unit station. The app displays remote status for all connected iOS devices. It allows users to check progress when prepping devices using Apple Configurator and enables the carts and station to be tagged by location or other information for organization.
