The workload for administrative staff required us to hire 5 more people at 40 hours a week for 6 weeks, every year. Implementing InfoSnap will save our district $12,000 a year just in manpower alone.

Muskogee School District 20 in Oklahoma, has partnered with InfoSnap to improve efficiency by moving student enrollment and registration online. InfoSnap’s award winning integration with PowerSchool will provide this 6,200 student body district with a customized solution that will streamline new and annual student registration through seamless, real-time, on-demand data transfer.
“We’re a one-to-one school district with a large emphasis on technology. We want the first thing that new enrollees see to be an innovative software solution and a tablet to use it,” said Eric Wells, Information Services Director at Muskogee.
School administrators would previously distribute and collect 14 pages of paper for new students. Families would have to print a student’s name a total of 13 times before they could return their paperwork. “It became imperative to eliminate the paper shuffle and create convenience for our families. InfoSnap is going to provide us with that amazing efficiency,” said Wells.
“The workload for administrative staff required us to hire 5 more people at 40 hours a week for 6 weeks, every year. Implementing InfoSnap will save our district $12,000 a year just in manpower alone,” adds Wells.
Families who have more than one child within the district can ‘snap’ data from one student to another. The use of SmartForm™ technology, an intuitive tool built into the solution, will collect relevant data based on previously entered information or choices (grade, activities, medical history, etc.). The data submitted by families are reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet Muskogee’s processes and then delivered into the district’s PowerSchool student information system. This will improve the accuracy of data collected on an annual basis.
Muskogee will also use InfoSnap’s Payment Management Service which will allow administrators to easily collect and report on all fees and donations at the time of form submission. In addition, InfoSnap’s Language Localization will meet the need of this diverse population by providing multilingual forms to families. “We have a high Spanish speaking population so it’s important that they receive the same value. With InfoSnap, we’re customizing a solution for all of our students and families,” said Wells.
“It’s been a wonderful experience working with InfoSnap. They understand that we’re not the Pro’s. This is our first leap at moving registration online and InfoSnap has done an outstanding job educating us about how this solution is going to be tailored to our business processes. It’s great to have a partner to rely on who actually wants to implement a solution for you and not just a product,” adds Wells.
