Andover, MA (PRWEB) June 8, 2006
Las Vegas, NV June 8, 2006 -- SMART Systems, Inc., a leading developer of integrated school management software, will introduce OnlineSMART.net ASP to attendees of the Annual Conference of the Career College Association (CCA) being held June 12-14 in Las Vegas. OnlineSMART.net ASP allows users to manage their school’s prospective, active and former student records using just a PC with a high speed internet connection and Internet Explorer.
“To experience school management software that’s secure, easy-to-use and affordable, CCA members are being offered a 30-day ‘Test Drive’ of OnlineSMART.net ASP at no cost or obligation,” said Alan Hatch, President of Phoenix-based SMART Systems, Inc.
Hatch continued, “OnlineSMART.net ASP is a cost-effective way for schools to deploy our products without a major investment in the hardware, software and tech staff needed to maintain a computer network. An ASP (application service provider) is simply another way of accessing and utilizing applications. Instead of installing the software on a dedicated server at a school,OnlineSMART.net ASP applications are installed and managed at our central data center and provide users with a convenient, cost-effective way to utilize the power and functionality of OnlineSMART.net ASP.”
Mary Clare Lokken, owner of the Professional Salon Academy said, “We enthusiastically recommend OnlineSMART.net ASP. It replaced manual recordkeeping beautifully. It uses the latest security techniques and is very user friendly. It provides all the report information we need for accreditation, annual reports, and state and federal reporting.”
About SMART Systems, Inc.
The origin of SMART Systems, Inc. took place in 1987 when Gene Miller, the original developer of SMART, responded to the need of private schools he was working with for an affordable, user-friendly method of automating their administrative requirements. Along with two colleagues, Miller developed the basic framework and the first version of School Management And Record Tracking (hence the acronym SMART), which was put into place in a school in Illinois.
When SMART moved from a DOS application into the 32-bit Windows world in 1995, SMART’s school management software gained wide acceptance. In September 2002, SMART moved to Phoenix and began a major expansion of its capabilities to better serve both clock hour and credit hour schools of all types. In 2003, the SMART Time electronic clock was developed to further enhance the speed of record-keeping. In 2004, the SMART Point of Sale addition was developed for schools that incorporate clinic services and point of sales into their total operation.
Today SMART Systems, Inc. products are in place in over 400 schools. For more information, or to request a "Test Drive" of onlinesmart.net ASP, visit http://www.onlinesmart.net.
