AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Prologic Technology Systems, Inc., a leader in K-12 school district administration and student management solutions, today announced that Abilene ISD (AISD) has selected their TEAMS ERP solution (in a multi-year, $1.5 million agreement) as its integrated environment for Finance, HR/Payroll, and Student Information Systems, replacing the district's 30-year old legacy system.
AISD, a 17,000 student district, conducted an extensive industry search before making their selection, spending over two years compiling data from conversations with 30 districts, multiple vendor demos and numerous on-site visits. Their vendor comparison ultimately focused on Prologic's TEAMS ERP for its position inventory methodology, user friendly interfaces, and its hands-free processes built into the system.
TEAMS is designed specifically for K-12 with a revolutionary, position-management core that serves as the foundational building block for all relationships within the system. This difference fundamentally alters the perception of what a K-12 system can deliver in terms of automation and real-time analytics.
Commenting on the selection, Melissa Irby, Executive Director of Business and Finance at AISD, said, "The biggest thing for us was to acquire a true position-inventory solution. We had been managing vacancies manually with a spreadsheet...very tedious work...and only as good as the date of the spreadsheet. We needed a better tool for staffing, budgeting and reporting that was fully automated. TEAMS just made more sense. There is a higher level of intuitive maneuvering throughout TEAMS compared to other solutions. With TEAMS, we will be able to quickly extrapolate data for TEA reporting, and other reporting on the horizon; rather than manually importing data from one system into another."
According to Irby, there is a unique difference separating TEAMS from other integrated solutions. While many vendors offer fully integrated solutions, it's up to the employee to make that integration happen. For large districts these extra steps can be time consuming and potentially lead to omission errors. For example, when human resources enters an employee into the system, other systems require the employee to go to the next step of manually moving that data over to the payroll system. With TEAMS, there are no additional steps; the human resource data is automatically populated into the payroll system as it is entered, without any additional action required on the part of the employee.
"Our focus over the years has been to design solutions from the user's point of view by replacing many of the time consuming, redundant tasks with built-in automated processes that deliver a higher level of accuracy and speed. Abilene's selection of TEAMS is strong validation that we are on the right path when it comes to solutions that fit the needs of today's complex district environments," stated Jeff Pepper, President of Prologic Technology Systems, Inc.
