SRC Solutions Introduces The Gateway Suite of Student Lifecycle Solutions for K12

SRC Solutions expands the core functionality of Registration Gateway to a full suite of online solutions for the K12 Student Lifecycle.

 

Center Valley, PA  July 27, 2015

SRC Solutions is excited to unveil the Gateway Suite of solutions for the K12 Student Lifecycle. The Gateway Suite is comprised of eight standalone applications and 6 complimentary modules. SRC Solutions Gateway Suite engages with your students from the point of school selection with School Choice Gateway to Registration Gateway to Electronic Cumulative Folders with Central Records Gateway, the first Student Relationship Management solution for K12 documents and communications.

Gateway Suite applications and modules are built on the foundation of Registration Gateway which has been proven as a top tier Online Enrollment Solution for K12 and the only solution to have won the Top 100 Product Award from District Administrator Magazine.

It was extremely important for SRC Solutions to utilize Registration Gateway as the core building block or foundation in delivering the Gateway Suite to our customers. Many companies claim to be solutions providers but fall short. Several companies key in on process rather than workflow enhancement. It can be summed up best by stating you can make a car go faster with a bigger engine but if you don’t upgrade the brakes and tires, it’s a recipe for disaster. Looking at specific processes alone without taking into account and planning for the start-to-finish workflow is a poor way to plan and typically one that is only understood when it is too late.

Patrick Maher, CEO, SRC Solutions, Inc.

Mohammed Riaz from BeaconHouse National University states it the best: “Business Processes are basically a collection of activities cutting across various departments, producing a valuable output for the customers. Workflow is used to automate these repetitive activities and hence business processes. So workflow will bring automation and efficiency to the business process.”

Simply converting a stale and outdated paper based process to a stale and outdated online process is not a workflow solution.

“With the Gateway Suite, SRC Solutions is truly a workflow solutions provider. Built on 15 years of deployed architecture with constant enhancements integrated based on customer feedback, the Gateway Suite is tested, proven and deliverable today. The Gateway Suite also helps districts with their requisitioning processes. Districts can no longer afford to work with hundreds of software providers. The RFP requisitioning costs are tremendously expensive alone. Companies that offer single solutions are a dying breed. Innovation, inter-operability and enhanced workflow design are key and what we deliver with the Gateway Suite,” said Maher.

As the student progresses through their K-12 school career, the district can engage the Gateway Suite of applications in many areas of the student lifecycle including:

  • School Choice Gateway for Online School Determination
  • Registration Gateway for Online Student Enrollment
  • Central Records Gateway for Electronic Cumulative Folder Management
  • Records Request Gateway for Online Records Requests
  • Conference Gateway for Parent Teacher Conference Management
  • Address Purification Gateway for Address Cleansing and District Move Management
  • Gateway eDelivery for Electronic Parent Report Distribution

As the district HR processes grow, districts can also take advantage of Human Resources Gateway.

The strength of the Gateway Suite lies in the flexibility of the solutions allowing districts to address workflow improvements to outdated processes as budgets allow. For example, one of the great features of Registration Gateway is the ability to feed clean, pure and USPS verified data into your district Student Information System. Should a district be unable to deploy Registration Gateway due to timing, the district can always deploy cost-effective Address Purification Gateway as an entry point to clean data within the district and prepare for future workflow enhancements.

When your school or district engages with The Gateway Suite, there is no one right way to deploy. There are hundreds. As each application in independent of another, the Gateway Suite can be deployed in the way that best fits your district workflow goals.

The Gateway Suite doesn’t end with the eight applications mentioned above. The Gateway Suite Modules are six complimentary plug and play solutions designed to work with Gateway Suite Applications further enhancing workflow improvement and overall analytics.

They include:

  1. Gateway Athletics for athletics registration
  2. Gateway Scan for historical document scanning
  3. Gateway Capture for direct-to-folder district wide scanning of student records
  4. Gateway Analytics for advanced workflow process monitoring, notifications and communications.
  5. Gateway Geolytics for advances geo-coordinate data analysis and action
  6. Gateway Discipline for integrated discipline management and archiving

Registration Gateway partners with Kenowa Hills (MI) to deliver efficiency and cost savings

Kenowa Hills Public Schools streamlines data and document collection during student registration leading to tremendous efficiency and cost savings.

Center Valley, PA  July 22, 2015

SRC Solutions is thrilled to have Kenowa Hills Public Schools (KHPS) join the Registration Gateway family. KHPS recently completed new student registration with Registration Gateway, the only online enrollment solution to win District Administrator’s Top 100 Product Award. Registration Gateway has been able to transform KHPS’s student registration process to one that now delivers real-time data transfer to PowerSchool, elimination of traditional paper registration packets and the creation of Electronic Cumulative Folders. The effect of this transformation has not only had a positive impact on district staff but also on parents.

“All new parents used the online solution provided by Registration Gateway for this most recent new student registration period. The impact throughout KHPS has been terrific. Secretaries no longer have to manually enter data into PowerSchool and our PowerSchool specialist no longer has to correct the data. The Registration Gateway Type Ahead Address fields takes care of that for us. Accurate addresses are entered 100% of the time.”

-Russ Gerbers, Director of Technology, Kenowa Hills Public Schools

Registration Gateway has been designed from the ground up to provide enhanced workflow to school districts that goes way beyond the typical paper based and simple electronic forms packages. The Registration Gateway interface presents a customized workflow to each parent as they go through the question and answer process. This level of specialization is impossible to achieve with paper processes or forms process that allow questions to be skipped or entire screens to be skipped.

“Our mantra at SRC Solutions is that we drive process efficiency. Nowhere is this more evident than at KHPS. KHPS didn’t simply take an existing registration process and bring it online. They took the time to revisit the process and in doing so made key changes to add efficiency such as moving from school based enrollment centers to a centralized district approach,” said Patrick Maher, CEO, SRC Solutions, Inc.

“Our secretaries like the new process and KHPS has saved money and increased efficiency. What more could you ask from a business partner? We are excited to be expanding our relationship with SRC Solutions Parent Conference Gateway this coming year,” said Russ Gerbers, Director of Technology, Kenowa Hills Public Schools

SRC Solution’s Registration Gateway and Westlake City Schools (OH), a proven partnership delivering Innovative solutions for Student Registration in Ohio

SRC Solutions and Westlake City Schools have been working together to deliver cost savings, time savings and increased parent engagement through Online Registration and Electronic Student Folders.

Center Valley, PA  July 01, 2015

SRC Solutions, Inc. partner, Westlake City Schools (OH) shares their experience after deploying and using Registration Gateway.

Westlake City Schools made the informed decision to work with Registration Gateway to replace an existing customized student registration system. This decision has resulted in a rousing success for both administration and parents.

“From a savings standpoint, Westlake City Schools was able to eliminate a 13 page student packet for each student each year. These savings alone would have been enough to justify Registration Gateway but with Registration Gateway we were able to deploy new and returning student registration with data integrated real-time into Westlake’s Student Information System PowerSchool,” said Pete Zagray, Director of Technology, Westlake City Schools.

Registration Gateway allows Westlake City Schools parents to easily register their children online utilizing a sophisticated Type Ahead Address feature that eliminates the potential for spelling mistakes and reduces address fraud at the time of registration. Once parents complete the online registration, district registrars approve the registration and information flows directly to PowerSchool. Partially completed records or abandoned student registrations are never a problem when enrolling through Registration Gateway.

Registration is only one part of this success story. Westlake City Schools has also deployed SRC Solutions Electronic Cumulative Folder technology which captures all registration documents as well as supporting documents including residency, birth records and medical and places these documents into secure Electronic Student Folders. Registration Gateway’s Electronic Cumulative Folder solutions have been integrated with student registration for over 7 years and are in use by school districts in over 30 states.

“Westlake City Schools is the perfect example of the success districts can expect when working with Registration Gateway. Westlake experienced 100% participation from parents registering students online saving significant time and money” said Patrick Maher, CEO, SRC Solutions, Inc.

Registration Gateway is much more than a simple forms warehouse which many other providers try to market as registration management systems.With Registration Gateway, Westlake City Schools is able to integrate and automate the data needs by delivering reports to multiple district departments. Registration Gateway also provides Westlake City Schools the ability to decide which registration data points flow into PowerSchool and which we choose to use for other purposes throughout the district. SRC Solutions excels at providing ease of use for families, PowerSchool Integration and support.
