Memphis, Tennessee (PRWEB) August 16, 2007
KC Management Group (KCMG), a management consultant firm specializing in Information Technology systems and business process operations, has announced significant progress with two large-scale technology integration projects for the Chicago Public Schools.
As the nation's third largest school district, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) has 602 schools, 26,548 teachers and over 438,500 students. CPS, which is in the process of switching from an outdated mainframe computer system to a series of state-of-the-art information systems, engaged KCMG for a multi-year consulting contract to ensure this new technology would be implemented and used effectively.
Known for their expertise in integrating data, KCMG's responsibilities include providing program management for the $41.4 million Instructional Management Program & Academic Communication Tool (IMPACT) project that brings together student data in a single point of contact. IMPACT replaces the current student information system with an up-to-date system that allows teachers and administrators to access and manage student information.
KCMG is also providing expertise for the CPS@Work initiative, which is restructuring the collective Human Capital functions of human resources, payroll and benefits.
Serving the Chicago Public Schools, KCMG has continued with its track record of providing exceptional results within specified timelines. CPS Chief Information Officer Robert Runcie states:
"KC Management Group is a model business partner for the Chicago Public Schools. They have proven that they can provide top notch program management and execution services for the deployment of mission critical systems and processes in K-12. They know this industry and are committed to it.
