School Districts Make the Grade With SRC and Xerox DocuShare

School districts across the country are going digital to better manage time-consuming administrative processes such as student enrollment, payroll and data storage – and in turn, are saving money and time.

Using Xerox Corporation’s (NYSE: XRX) DocuShare® Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Platform administrators are able to focus their energies on what matters most – educating students.

“Educators are being stretched thinner than ever before – and there’s just not enough time to get everything done efficiently,” said David Smith, vice president, DocuShare, Xerox Corporation. “DocuShare simplifies important day-to-day activities, improves compliance requirements and reduces costs so educators can concentrate on student readiness.”

Here’s a look at how DocuShare has helped schools improve student registration, automate paper-based processes and secure information:

  • With 21 schools and 15,485 students, Walled Lake Consolidated School District in Michigan uses DocuShare to simplify the student registration process. Together with partner SRC Solutions, Inc., Walled Lake implemented Registration Gateway, an online enrollment system built on DocuShare. The district reports data entry accuracy has improved by 90 percent in just six months during its trial period.
  • After a fire destroyed the administrative building of the Upper Merion Area School District in Pennsylvania, the board contracted SRC Solutions to scan and organize more than a million documents into DocuShare – securing essential data while eliminating the need for external storage facilities. The school district further benefited from DocuShare by improving workflows in its purchasing and HR departments, where all purchase orders and employee information are now scanned and digitally archived. This has significantly increased efficiency by speeding user access, allowing electronic distribution and notifications, and producing PDF files so documents can be searched and retrieved in seconds.
  • Kawartha Pine Ridge School Board in Ontario, Canada relies on DocuShare to automate paper-based processes including payroll records, student registration forms and teaching manuals. For example, the district has reduced the manual, three-day processing of its monthly cell phone bills down to one step with DocuShare – which quickly scans more than 380 bills and distributes them accordingly. The school board also uses DocuShare to securely share and update information for its 33,000 students and 3,500 employees.

Skyward Partners with SRC Solutions to Develop Paper-Free K-12 Enrollment Solution

Integration of data management systems benefits districts and parents.

Skyward, Inc., an industry leading K-12 school administration software provider announced today a partnership with SRC Solutions that streamlines the K-12 enrollment process for districts and parents. With the integration of SRC Solutions’ Registration Gateway™ and Skyward’s Student Management Suite™, parents now have the opportunity to complete their student’s school registration online. Information entered into Registration Gateway™ automatically transfers through an interchange engine into the district’s web-based Skyward Student Management Suite™.

The online registration and data exchange capabilities combine to create an ideal enrollment process for school districts and parents. Districts can better control operating budgets by reducing the staff time necessary to organize current registration processes, as well as eliminate paper costs associated with the traditional paper-intensive enrollment method. The paperless process also saves parents from entering redundant information onto multiple forms, therefore increasing the level of data accuracy.

“We are delighted with the direct integration for online student registration, currently supported by Skyward,” said Patrick R. Maher, CEO of SRC Solutions, Inc. “This partnership will help school districts improve efficiencies in all of their paper processes, reduce costs associated with student enrollment and improve reporting and funding due to improved data cleanliness.”

Integration of the two software systems has already proven successful for Walled Lake Consolidated School District, a Michigan district serving nearly 16,000 students.

Skyward’s integration with the Registration Gateway™ system has been a wonderful addition for Walled Lake Consolidated School District. The effective and efficient way our parents can register new students has saved both time and money for the district. It has helped with the accuracy of data that is entered into Skyward and is a wonderful addition to what Skyward provides our District.

-David Pesick, Technician, Walled Lake Schools Technology Department
