Vantage Learning, a pioneer in providing Software as a Service (SaaS) to K12 schools and districts, today launched Vantage Fusion an integrated solution for faculty, students, parents and most importantly district administrators in addressing data management needs. The announcement was made from the floor of the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) along with live demonstrations to be held June 29th through July 1st.
Vantage Fusion is a proven, cost effective solution in Europe with over 600,000 student users. It is a robust full-featured educational data and information management system designed for administrators, parents, counselors, and teachers to track and manage data within their schools and districts.
"Known for our advanced technology used in schools, including the MY Access! instructional writing program and IntelliMetric automated essay scoring system (AES), we are thrilled to launch Vantage Fusion in the U.S. We are calling it a School Intelligence System because it is so much more than just a student information information system. Fusion offers everything educators and administrators need to manage a school or district through a single interface," says Harry Barfoot, VP for Vantage Learning. "We expect Fusion will be a hit with U.S. schools and districts, both large and small, and help them be more efficient and fiscally prudent managing data and information."
Vantage Fusion is a single, integrated system that provides a base set of six modules with an additional seven plug and play modules for a total of 13 SIF 2.2 compliant advanced school intelligence modules. Modules include: Authorization and Administration, Student Information System, Section, School, Attendance, Staff, School Nursing and Health, Counseling Services, Library, Transportation, Communications, HR and Financials, and Fee Management. Additional offerings such as Assessment and iSEEK Supercruncher reporting are also easily integrated into Vantage Fusion.
Scalable to accommodate the needs of all K-12 enterprises, from single charter schools to the largest districts in the country, Vantage Fusion can satisfy all major requirements for a school intelligence system.
"Our goal with Fusion is to provide the most innovative, comprehensive, and cost effective school information management system for K-12 districts that is also very easy to implement. For too long, a higher percentage of dollars has gone to school administration and student information systems than needed. We believe that those dollars should find their way to the classroom for opportunities to enhance teaching and learning," said Harry Barfoot, VP for Vantage Learning. "Vantage Fusion is designed to be a complete, easy to use, cost-effective system that can be acquired as a turnkey solution or as customized individual modules needed by a district or school. We will help educators lower the total cost of school and student administration by furthering their ability to efficiently communicate between departments and buildings, parents and students, and truly use the data in Fusion to drive student achievement and learning.
