Registration Gateway Wins District Adminstration’s Top 100 Products 3 Years in a Row

Following a 2014 and 2015 win, SRC Solutions’ Registration Gateway wins this award once again, this time for new features and innovations to Online Student Enrollment.

SRC Solutions is thrilled to have Registration Gateway win the District Administration Top 100 Award for an unprecedented 3 years in a row.  After receiving this award in 2014 for Registration Gateway, we knew we were onto something big by helping school districts to realize paperless efficiency especially with Online Enrollment. When we won again in 2015, we were proud of the loyalty exhibited by our customers. It was through their feedback and their variety of needs that we were able to enhance Registration Gateway to new heights. It is thanks to our many customers across the United States, again, that we are honored to receive this award for the 3rd time in a row in 2016.

District Administration Magazine, the only education magazine to reach every superintendent in the county with an impressive circulation over 75,000, takes nominations from school districts across the country every year in order to highlight the best educational resources on the cutting-edge of technology. For the third time, we are honored to receive the Top 100 Products Award, after careful consideration of over 1,500 nominations.

At SRC Solutions, we pride ourselves on being different.  Our mission and the purpose of this award are one and the same: “To make a difference in your [school] district and inspire innovation in the world of K12 in years to come.” Registration Gateway, and its sister software, Central Records Gateway, work hand in hand to save money for schools by eliminating time and resources wasted on slow paper-based processes, and the physical costs of everything associated with it.

New features include the ability to create an ongoing student record from multiple registration documents, direct data integration with all major student information systems, and an address authentication that prevents fraud. From listening to our customers’ challenges, insights, and needs, they inspire us to continuously upgrade our solutions so that they can do more for the administrators, secretaries, teachers, nurses, and other educational personnel we serve.

“Was I thrilled to find out we won again this year?  Absolutely, and for the record, I am honored on behalf of the company. But does that mean I’m content enough with our products not to keep enhancing them? Absolutely not,” says Patrick Maher, SRC Solutions, Inc. CEO. “I think we won because of how much we value our customers, which is why they spoke out for us and nominated us in the first place. And second place and third place, for that matter. Because we listen intently to their needs and complaints, not just their praise. To everything they would like Registration Gateway or Central Records Gateway to do in future iterations. We are always helping them to get the most out of our software, from ensuring the smoothness of the online registration process, to automating all kinds of reporting. But what we do, most importantly, is adapt based on them. If we stopped now, I could guarantee we wouldn’t be winning any awards next year.”

All in all, we’d like to thank District Top Administration for the opportunity to showcase Registration Gateway, and we’d like to thank our customers for our nomination and continued loyalty. Winning for a third time is truly special as it is proof the long nights and weekends are truly worth it to ensure the success of our customers.

How can Digital Workflows Enhance Human Resources Onboarding Management?

Creating, storing and retaining important paper documents for new hires costs schools time and money that could be better spent elsewhere. Meeting compliance regulations and accessing the appropriate data when necessary can also be challenging when administrators have to keep track of paper forms every time new teachers are hired.

Online human resources solutions can streamline onboarding processes by making data easier to access in a system where security breaches are less likely. Districts considering whether to make the transition from paper to digital human resources workflows should take note of these benefits.

An easy switch
If your district uses paper-based workflows for onboarding processes but you’ve been hesitant to go digital due to fear that the switch will take time and effort your staff doesn’t have, rest assured that the transition is a simple one. With SRC Solution’s Human Resources Gateway, you can easily integrate your applicant tracking system, as the software works with most major applicant tracking software.

Every time a new teacher is hired, there information can be integrated into the school's registration software.Every time a new teacher is hired, their information can easily be entered into the human resources software.

Control over new hire documents
With paper documents, there’s always a risk of security breaches. Online HR software ensures that you have complete control over who is able to see and access information about your new teachers. It also helps to mitigate risk by providing immediate access to any data that’s requested by the new employee or during a compliance audit. It’s important that you have essential information ready to go when requested.

If critical files are lost or sensitive data is stolen, schools could risk losing their new hires. According to research by software company Panopto, filling a position that was left open by a new employee because of an onboarding error can cost up to $11,000. Eliminate these risks by storing everything in a secure, accessible system.

More time and savings
As all of your new hire information will be stored in one online portal, this frees up a lot of extra time for your tech teams, which only need to support this one system. School administrators also have more time to focus on other tasks because they don’t have to organize and file hundreds of important documents – online solutions make data entry quick and easy and files searchable. Without the costs required for extra storage space and paper and printing costs for distributing forms to new employees, schools also see a high return on investment after investing in human resources software.
