Qwiklabs® platform users can create, manage and run live lab environments around the clock and around the world. Qwiklabs takes full advantage of public cloud technologies, delivering clients low cost, rapid time to market, and extreme scalability. Labs are delivered via a standard browser without plugins to classrooms, events or online anywhere there is access to the Internet.

Qwiklabs used by lab creators, instructors/trainers, administrators, coordinators and students are complementary to any business or education institution’s flow of assignments, modules, classes and courses. Qwiklabs can be integrated with other software elements of an institution’s infrastructure, including their learning management system and the student information system.

By the nature of our single software build, and investment of development efforts into our single software environment, all customers benefit from the developments, feature requests, and enhancements made for any one customer. Qwiklabs® users are growing rapidly resulting in more innovation, more features and more efficiency for all of our users.
