This new offering represents a great opportunity for our existing customers and new customers alike
Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2009
Achieve Technology, Inc. (Achieve), a leading provider of school management systems, today announced the availability of Achieve SMS Hosted, a fully hosted version of the Achieve School Management Solution. Achieve SMS Hosted provides internet-accessible integrated software applications that meet the needs of independent schools, charter schools and home school networks.
"This new offering represents a great opportunity for our existing customers and new customers alike," said Kathleen Butler, Achieve Technology's President and CEO. "The new fully hosted version of Achieve SMS means that schools get an enterprise-level system without the typical expense and infrastructure required to manage one. Whether they have Macs, PCs, thin clients, laptop or desktop computers, they can now take advantage of the entire Achieve product suite, and can do so from any location with internet access."
Dr. Betty Creamer, Head of St. Michael's Episcopal School in Bryan, Texas states: "I had experience with Achieve Technology at another school, so when I was presented with the option of the same software, but accessible entirely via the web, I felt it was the perfect match for St. Michael's Episcopal School. The fully hosted solution allows my staff to effectively manage school administration, yet I don't need to invest in an additional server or add IT expertise to manage it."
Achieve SMS Hosted automates and simplifies the tasks performed by school administrators and faculty. It includes student and family information management, grade book and report card data entry, attendance, health, human resource, and the ever important fund raising components. Parents and students can also utilize the system to retrieve current class grades, progress reports, report cards, transcripts and more. The new fully hosted version streamlines school operations, improves communication within the school community, and reduces the burden and expense of IT support.
