Red Havas is thrilled to be appointed by Janison, Australian-owned, ASX-listed education technology pioneer, as its PR and social media partner. 

Founded 20 years ago, Janison is an award-winning, home grown edtech success story, thriving on the international stage and delivering more than 6.5 million online assessments annually in 117 countries. Janison has broken global records in the scale at which it delivers online schools assessment since 2010. Janison’s team of experts empowers K-12 schools, professional accreditation bodies and governments to achieve meaningful educational outcomes through technology solutions.

Red Havas will work as an extension of the Janison team on continuing its momentum and growth following the exceptionally rapid expansion of the business that has seen it more than triple in value and double in size over the past year. Janison continues to forge a reputation for forward-thinking, robust solutions and constantly surpasses expectations in the digital transformation of education. 

Kristie Taylor, Head of Marketing of Janison, said: “Despite the profound impact of the pandemic on the education sector, Janison has recorded its most successful year on record. We were looking for an agency partner that would be an extension of our team and support our growth as we mature as a business. We are delighted to appoint Red Havas as our preferred communications agency. They demonstrated a passion and alignment to our purpose of unlocking the potential of every learner, and will support the team in developing considered strategic decisions and initiatives to drive brand awareness with local media.”
