Qwerts Education Services has been in the news lately for a number of reasons, but one of the biggest has been a lawsuit brought by the state of Utah against the company for misleading users on its website.
The company, which was founded in 2013 by a team of former US Postal Service employees, was acquired by QwerTY in 2017 for a reported $3.4 billion.
The lawsuit was settled in November of that year for $3 million.
In 2018, the company announced that it would be closing down its website, citing its financials as the main reason.
“Our team and the Qwerties people are looking to move on,” a spokesperson said in a statement at the time.
“The Qwerys team has made significant sacrifices over the years to improve our customer experience and we’re very proud of the contributions that we have made to our community.”
In 2018 and 2019, Qwertys Education Services received a slew of criticism over its website design and content.
In October 2018, Qwest wrote a scathing letter to Qwertz, stating that the site was not up to the standards of Qwerters standard website design, and that its content was misleading to users.
“We have had no further communication with the company and we are not aware of any new information on the matter,” the letter read.
Qwerttys Education Systems said in its statement to TechCrunch that it was also not the primary reason for the shutdown.
“Qwerty and the entire Qwerter family are saddened by the news and deeply regret any disruption it has caused,” the statement read.
“In addition to being a great company and beloved by our community, Qwertys Education Solutions is the best education resource we know and trust.”
