Culver City, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2010
XAP Corporation’s client, College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC), has been awarded the 11th annual Best Practice Award for its High School Electronic Transcript Exchange from the Postsecondary Educations Standards Council (PESC). XAP created systems for California Statewide Electronic Exchange and the University System of Georgia Board of Regents (working in collaboration with the Georgia Student Finance Commission), which both won Best Practice Awards from PESC in 2009.
“This recognition for our client’s implementation of technology is very gratifying,” said XAP’s CEO J. Michael Thompson. “Being recognized as a best practice in the industry shows that the work our XAP team members do is making a fundamental, standards-based difference. More importantly, each of these XAP systems is proven in the marketplace, and is an example of a real-world solution that can be put into place anywhere in the United States today.”
“Electronic transcript systems continue to increase in importance as the country moves toward a more efficient movement of student data,” added Thompson. “We see our electronic transcript solution as the backbone of electronic data delivery whether as a student transcript system or for the burgeoning field of longitudinal data systems.”
As of today’s Earth Day, XAP has processed over five million electronic transcripts to date, more than any other entity, which has contributed to over 50,000 lbs. of paper saved and significant fuel savings.
