AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- infosnap, the leading provider of online admission, enrollment and registration solutions for schools, today announced that the School Systems group of Pearson has named the company an "Independent Software Vendor" (ISV), forming a relationship that allows Pearson and infosnap to jointly bring functionality to market that logically extends the PowerSchool® student information system (SIS).
"infosnap is one of our first partners under our new Independent Software Vendor Program, and for good reason," said Oliver Wreford, Director of Strategic Alliances for School Systems. "Time after time, we've seen our PowerSchool customers benefit from their use of infosnap online student registration and annual student data update solutions. infosnap products and services help the schools collect the needed information online, which is then easily delivered to their PowerSchool student information systems."
infosnap already serves dozens of PowerSchool customers nationwide, working with public school districts, charter schools and independent schools to help them re-engineer their antiquated, paper-based data collections processes. These schools benefit from enhanced staff efficiency, saved time and money, improved the accuracy and timeliness of student information, and they make life a little easier for parents and families.
One of those PowerSchool customers is Pam Imholz, Technology Director for the Libertyville Elementary School District in Libertyville, IL. "infosnap online solutions and services have transformed the way we collect important information, and our PowerSchool student information system lets us manage that information almost effortlessly," she noted. "infosnap and PowerSchool are a powerful combination – and Libertyville Elementary School District, our staff and our families all benefit from that partnership."
Added another PowerSchool user, Janice Hickey, Director of Educational Services for the El Segundo (CA) Unified School District, "I can't tell you the number of phone calls and emails I have received from grateful parents who commented on the ease of registering their students using infosnap, not to mention the time and trees saved from making the transition from heaps of paperwork to a few keystrokes on a computer."
"infosnap is honored and excited we will be working even more closely with Pearson and the PowerSchool user community," commented Karin Holtz, infosnap Director of Sales and Marketing for Public Schools. "In fact, infosnap now has a staff in our new Austin, TX headquarters focused exclusively on PowerSchool implementation and integration of our products."
