InfoSnap has been creating solutions for over 15 years. We don’t have to re-invent the wheel—their collaborative work ethic is helping Westside Community Schools develop a powerful solution that will improve our entire registration process.

Westside Community Schools in Omaha, Nebraska, selects InfoSnap to modernize their student registration process by launching a customized, online student registration solution. The 6,000 student-district will improve staff efficiency and family satisfaction with a flexible and intuitive solution. InfoSnap’s award winning PowerSchool integration will effectuate real-time, on-demand data transfer between the two systems.

“Prior to partnering with InfoSnap, our 13 school buildings were each implementing a different method for student registration. The process wasn’t consistent—resulting in families not receiving all of the forms and notices they needed to have and staff not receiving essential data to efficiently serve our community,” said Alan Bone, Coordinator of Student Services at Westside Community Schools. “Partnering with InfoSnap will give us access to student data in one centralized location.”

InfoSnap’s solutions provide secure, customized online forms based on a school’s existing business processes. Families that have more than one child in 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 is reviewed and formatted to meet Westside Community Schools’ policies and then delivered into the district’s student information system, PowerSchool, resulting in up-to-date, accurate records on the first day of school.

“We are impressed with the ability to efficiently allocate our resources. If a family registers a student who is eligible for free and reduced lunch, a notification will be sent to the nutrition services department. If it’s indicated that a student requires special services, the special services department will be alerted. Our nurses will be notified if a student registers with a medical condition. These are the efficiencies provided by InfoSnap that will place our district in the position to optimally serve our school community,” notes Bone.

Transitioning to an online registration solution, developed by InfoSnap, will streamline the various processes within the district and provide a more family-friendly registration experience.

“I attended a PowerSchool user group where two-thirds of the attendees recommended InfoSnap for online student registration when a question was posed asking about the best vendor. InfoSnap has been creating solutions for over 15 years. We don’t have to re-invent the wheel—their collaborative work ethic is helping Westside Community Schools develop a powerful solution that will improve our entire registration process,” said Bone.
