New York, NY (PRWEB) January 28, 2015
Today Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, announced that InfoSnap, the leading provider of cloud-based registration management solutions, is the winner of its inaugural Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Integration Excellence Award. Chosen from the more than 100 technology companies in the PowerSchool ISV program, InfoSnap is honored for its exemplary work collaborating with Pearson to develop application programming interface (API) tools for integrating its student information system, PowerSchool, with other software applications, creating cost-effective and efficient approaches for school districts.
Pearson Vice President Oliver Wreford, who oversees the ISV program, said, "Our partner program includes more than 100 world-class education technology companies that we collaborate with to support K-12 school districts. InfoSnap exemplifies our overall commitment to API development to help schools maximize their technology investment and realize savings in time, resources and money. We would like to recognize InfoSnap’s team of talented technology developers for their exceptional efforts."
Founded in 2000, InfoSnap is used by more than 650 preK-12 independent, charter and public schools around the world. Its solutions provide secure, customized online forms based on existing business processes, and are designed using SmartForm™ technology. A powerful administrative portal allows for the review, editing and managing of data. InfoSnap easily integrates with PowerSchool through an advanced Data Integration Framework. The single sign-on feature allows families to access InfoSnap services from within their PowerSchool family portal without the need to create or log into a separate InfoSnap account. Additionally, InfoSnap is the only online registration partner that is directly embedded within the Parent Portal navigation.
"InfoSnap and Pearson have had a long and successful partnership," said Lou Trotter, InfoSnap CEO and President. "Collaborating with Pearson has given our clients an unparalleled understanding of the efficiency, technology, and customization that InfoSnap offers. This award is a direct reflection of the successful integration capabilities we have and the dedicated specialists who work collaboratively with Pearson and our clients to implement innovative solutions."
InfoSnap and PowerSchool are currently working together in hundreds of districts, including Bedford, VA. Bedford has successfully implemented the new API, simplifying the process for families and generating further operational efficiencies.
Kevin Harrison, Data Manager at Bedford County Public Schools, VA, states, "What separates InfoSnap from its competitors is that InfoSnap has always been in the business of providing customized solutions for schools and they have the most advanced PowerSchool integration and data management capabilities in the industry."
Through the ISV program, Pearson and its partners collaborate with the K-12 education community to simplify school administration and accelerate student learning. As a result of these ISV partnerships, Pearson’s PowerSchool, the most widely used web-based student information system (SIS), integrates with software for activities such as special education; online registration data analytics; health and immunization management; college and career planning; cafeteria and transportation management; and parental and student engagement.
The PowerSchool ISV Partner program promotes the delivery of comprehensive solutions that support the everyday student data management requirements of a classroom, school, district or state. Eligible partners must offer critical, efficient solutions that maximize PowerSchool’s support of teaching and learning. In support of its ISV program, Pearson makes a deep investment of support for the partner companies as they integrate their solutions with PowerSchool as well resources to help share their stories with school districts nationwide.
