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.
