Berlin Area School District in Wisconsin will move its student registration process online with a customized, secure solution from InfoSnap. This solution will streamline data collection for new and annual student registration, resulting in an improved business process for administrative staff. InfoSnap’s award winning PowerSchool integration will effectuate real-time, on-demand data transfer between the two systems.

“We’re partnering with a provider that understands the value of privacy and security of sensitive data. InfoSnap maintains a sophisticated and secure infrastructure and shares a commitment with Berlin Area School District to protect our data,” said Bob Eidahl, District Administrator at Berlin.

“InfoSnap has a very simple and efficient solution for student registration. The solution’s ease of use will provide our families with a platform to complete registration on their own time from home, work, or anywhere they have internet access. School administrators will reap the benefits of having accurate and up-to-date data by the first day of school which will allow us to better serve our community,” said Carrie McCarthy, Family and Community Partnership Coordinator at Berlin.

Families who have more than one child within the district can ‘snap’ data from one student to another, which eliminates having to re-enter data, such as parent contact information, more than once. 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.). “We are in the process of developing a solution that will address our parents’ concerns. InfoSnap will eliminate the amount of time families tend to spend filling out paper registration packets,” notes Dr. Eidahl.

The data submitted by families is reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet the school district’s policies and then delivered into PowerSchool, the District’s Student Information System, which will modernize the existing workflow for administrative staff.

“We value the dedicated solution specialists who are working very closely with us to customize an intuitive solution for our district. There’s a high level of comfort and trust that we have in InfoSnap because of their consistent response time, attention to detail, and thorough feedback that we receive,” said Dr. Eidahl.

Berlin Area School District will set up registration kiosks at the schools throughout the summer for families who need assistance with registering students online. The district’s online registration solution will launch on July 6, 2015, for the 2015-16 school year.
