K-12 Challenges

families are being redEfined

From standard families to single parent families, same-sex parent families or extended families, the definition of what ‘family’ means is being radically redefined every year

limited reporting options

Creating custom Reports, Charts & Dashboards or extracting data easily and quickly in the right format you want is difficult at best, and sometimes it's not even an option.

FEE BILLING IS TOUGH

Fee Schedules should be easy to set up and configure for different groups, and include a flexible discounting engine that can process different discount amounts for each sibling.

ONLY CONSTANT IS CHANGE

Changes in curriculum structure. Changes in student engagement models. Changes in regulatory reporting requirements. Let's face it. Education is in a constant state of change.

"IT'S CLUNKY"

One of the biggest gripes by end-users is the lack of consistency and intuitiveness across the myriad of apps they use every day, not to mention constant duplication of data

LACK OF communication CHANNELS

Business Managers & Bursars need multiple ways of engaging with fee payers including SMS, email, or phone call from one spot and not in multiple apps or locations

Limited Fee Payers

There should be no limit on the number of fee payers that can contribute to a Student’s education. It should be limitless and support different billing percentages across fee payers

CoMPLEX pricing & contracts

Vendors love making contracts and pricing convoluted. It makes contract management difficult, cash flow unpredictable and enhancements or integrations are usually expensive propositions.
