Mobile County Public Schools Selects GuideK12™, Geovisual Analytic Software

GuideK12 reaches one-million student milestone with addition of largest district in Alabama

Mobile County Public Schools, the largest school district in Alabama, serves over 58,000 students in 90 schools and magnet programs. A district of this size has a lot of moving parts and complexity for administrators to analyze and understand.
Mobile County administrators selected GuideK12™ because it will allow them to visualize their district on a map while combining student and county data for real time scenario planning and analysis by district leaders.

Complexity in the decision making process continues to increase for all districts, so more and more are looking for solutions like GuideK12 to provide a quicker, more accurate way to make the right decisions for their students and communities alike. GuideK12’s geovisual analytics will allow Mobile County Public Schools to see their data with a new lens for boundary analysis, program placement, resource placement, emergency planning, and proactive decision-making. The ability to visualize and interact with disparate data sets on a map allows administrators to get instant results and feedback in order to be more proactive, efficient and transparent.

Mobile County administrators made the decision to move forward with the implementation of GuideK12’s platform through the company’s partnership with SRC Solutions, the district’s Registration Gateway solution. Being familiar with the full suite of GuideK12 products, SRC Solutions brought GuideK12 to Mobile County Public School administrators as a tool that would help them meet their decision-making needs moving forward.

We appreciate when our trusted solution providers bring a valuable new tool that they have come across. The industry, as well as the needs of our students are constantly changing making the need for solutions like GuideK12 even more valuable. We are excited about how GuideK12 will empower our district leaders with better analytic tools and look forward to seeing results once we dig deep into the platform.

David K. Akridge, Executive Manager of Information Technology, Mobile County Public Schools

“We are proud to welcome Mobile County Public Schools to the GuideK12 family. They are a leader in the state of Alabama and I applaud their innovative approach to finding technology tools that enable deeper insights, better dialogue between stakeholders and more data driven decision-making,” said GuideK12 CEO Chuck Amos. “With the addition of Mobile County Public Schools to the districts we serve, our platform now supports more than 1 million students nationwide. This is an important milestone for us. Having partners like MCPS and SRC are incredibly valuable relationships for us and we look forward to working with them both moving forward.”

SRC Solutions Selected as Independent Software Vendor by Pearson

SRC Solutions has been selected by Pearson, the global leader in education and learning technology, to serve as one of its Independent Software Vendors (ISV).

The partnership allows SRC Solutions to work hand in hand with Pearson to provide Registration Gateway to K – 12 schools.

Benefits of Pearson’s ISV program include providing SRC with extended reach in the education market; reaching more than 12 million students in thousands of schools and districts; enabling SRC to access Pearson product knowledge and people to ensure compatibility; and accessibility to Pearson’s customer base.

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.

Xerox makes student registration at Pennsylvania school district as easy as ABCs

When the Wilkes-Barre School District in Pennsylvania decided to do something about its antiquated and arduous student enrollment process, it turned to Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) and a key Xerox partner, SRC Solutions Inc.

The companies created a digital enrollment system that combines Xerox advanced multifunction systems (MFPs), a customized scanning solution from SRC, and Xerox’s DocuShare document management software. The system, which automates and digitizes much of the old manual process, will enable the 7,000-student district to reduce the registration process from two weeks per child to just 30 minutes. In addition to saving the district invaluable time, errors will be reduced and management and archiving dramatically improved.

The solution relies on Xerox’s Extensible Interface Platform (EIP) technology, which is built into many of the company’s MFPs. Based on Web standards, EIP allows independent software vendors and developers to create applications for MFPs, such as scan-to-email, that make it easier to move hard-copy documents into digital files. In addition, EIP lets developers customize the MFPs’ touch screens for use by specific individuals or workgroups.

SRC Solutions’ Registration Gateway application leverages EIP to provide school administrators an intuitive way to scan, index and validate student records. For the Wilkes-Barre solution, SRC also integrated Registration Gateway with Xerox’s DocuShare CPX enterprise content management software. To round out the solution, SRC integrated Streem Communications L.L.C.’s Fax and Alert Notification applications.

With the new solution, which will be rolled out over the next six months, student forms will be scanned in directly at Xerox MFPs located in all Wilkes-Barre schools, and routed – automatically from the devices – to their proper locations in the school district’s Xerox DocuShare system. Afterward, administrators will be able to access those records directly from the touch screen of a Xerox EIP-enabled device. When a student is selected, an image of the child will be displayed directly on the MFP screen, along with the student’s record and a list of required and outstanding registration documents. To input documents, school personnel will simply select the document they’re ready to file, such as a birth certificate, and scan it directly into the student’s record.

The Registration Gateway solution will change the way we do business as a school district and put our resources where we need them – shaping the minds of students. Xerox’s EIP platform delivers on the promise of technology by taking advantage of the network and hardware we are investing in to create a simplified workflow that allows us to work easier, faster and better.

–  Charolette Kordek, Director of Information Management, Wilkes-Barre School District

Previously, all records for the 7,000-student district were copied, placed in hard copy folders and physically transferred from department to department and school to school for filing. This took energy and time away from school administrators and parents, as well as occupying precious district storage space.

Xerox unveiled the first software solutions and a new developers program for EIP one year ago at the AIIMexpo/ON DEMAND Conference & Exposition 2007. Since then the company has received nearly 1,000 applications to download the development kit. In addition, there are now more than 19 EIP-enabled software solutions available worldwide, and EIP is now available on 21 Xerox office MFPs.

“The enthusiastic response of developers, system integrators and end users tells us that EIP is meeting a critical need for solutions that take the complexity out of day-to-day office processes,” said Roger Ellefson, manager of Solutions Marketing, Xerox Office Group. “EIP is just one way that Xerox is making work easier for customers and helping to reduce the time and money spent handling documents.”

System integrators and developers like SRC Solutions are using EIP to do far more than sell a printer or piece of software. They can leverage the functionality of the multifunction device to quickly meet their customers’ needs with business process solutions.

“EIP makes every connection count for our company – technology, workflow, business and partner opportunities now have even more potential,” said Patrick Maher, president and founder, SRC Solutions. “Xerox’s EIP has allowed me to differentiate myself from the competition and open up new streams of revenue.”
