AUSTIN, Texas, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Prologic Technology Systems, Inc. today announced the signing of a contract with DeSoto ISD. The DeSoto Board of Trustees unanimously approved the upgrade of the school district's technology to Prologic's TEAMS ERP and Student Information System (SIS). DeSoto is a suburban district outside of Dallas, Texas with 12 campuses covering the communities of DeSoto, Glenn Heights, and Ovilla.
"The decision to go with TEAMS ERP & SIS really came down to three things…a single relational database linking business and student data, the comfort level we have working with Prologic's people, and the price," stated Bobby LaBorde, CFO at DeSoto ISD. "Their student information system also weighed heavily in our decision," added LaBorde. "TEAMS gives us enhanced student reporting capabilities, more failsafe triggers and the added bonus of a system that is already integrated with the state's dashboard," added LaBorde.
TEAMS ERP & SIS uses a single source data repository for access and control allowing administrators more flexibility in report generation, a reduction in inputting errors and up-to-the minute student data for improved decision making. TEAMS also offer districts the budgeting advantage of a position control system that tracks information based on positions rather than employees. This allows districts, like DeSoto, to create a framework of positions for all jobs within the district without regard to whether there is an incumbent in a specific job or not. Any changes made to the human resource system are automatically populated into the payroll system, saving time and improving workflows.
"DeSoto's decision to go with our full TEAMS ERP & SIS suite is part of growing trend we are seeing this year, as school districts are becoming more keenly aware of the need for an end-to-end solution that seamlessly integrates administrative and student data," stated Jim Pepper, CEO at Prologic Technology Systems. "We designed TEAMS so that data could be easily shared among applications; realizing that the challenges of mandated reporting, complex payroll requirements and growing interest in capturing student information was not just a trend, but the way districts would run in the future," concluded Pepper.
