Jon Soong, the CEO of Makers Empire, says the partnership with Datacom closely aligns with his company’s efforts to enhance learning outcomes in educational environments.

“Datacom’s rich history as a systems integrator and strong relationships with schools across the Pacific will complement our innovation in 3D printing software to deliver a tailored approach to using this technology in the classroom to inspire individual learning,” Soong says.

And Bruce Jackson, the CEO of 3D Printing Systems, said he’s equally thrilled with the agreement between the three companies.

“Datacom has brought together the two vital ingredients for unleashing student creativity – combining 3D software and hardware,” Jackson says. “Datacom is now able to offer a tailored package for schools with its expertise in integrating technology into the classroom.”
