Frederick, MD (Vocus) July 24, 2008
Regent Education, the leading provider of financial aid management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for higher education institutions, today announced that it has formed a partnership with TopSchool, Inc. TopSchool is a leading SaaS provider of next generation administrative solutions optimized for small to mid-size higher education institutions.
TopSchool provides educational institutions with a seamless, extensible, easy-to-manage, and economical student lifecycle management (SLM) solution. TopSchool's SLM consists of a student information system (SIS) at its core, integrated with a customer relationship management system (CRM), student and faculty portal, reporting suite, and support services. Through the partnership, Regent Enterprise will be fully integrated into TopSchool's SLM as the financial aid module, enabling institutions to more efficiently manage the financial aid process.
"TopSchool's mission is to help institutions drive insights and decisions across the student lifecycle by providing industry leading technologies and support services," said Matthew Schnittman, TopSchool's President & CEO. "With complementary delivery models, our partnership with Regent further supports our goal to provide institutions with state-of-the-art solutions to more effectively serve their students and manage their operations."
Regent Enterprise will provide TopSchool clients with an easy to implement, turnkey solution that will revolutionize the way institutions process financial aid, giving them innovative, intuitive tools to automate and manage every aspect of the financial aid lifecycle. Because the solution is on demand, the financial aid office will always be up-to-date and remain compliant with the real time delivery of the latest federal and state regulations. Regent Enterprise helps institutions standardize and centralize the management of financial aid, resulting in increased productivity, ensured compliance, and controlled costs.
TopSchool SLM is delivered in a SaaS subscription model, enabling institutions to save up to 50% on costs related to SIS. Top School's approach represents a significant departure from traditional SIS vendors and focuses on providing rapid start-up and continuous software updates, leveraging its highly flexible, industry-specific SaaS platform to address institutions' needs. The merging of these leading technology solutions will enable TopSchool and Regent to ensure their customers realize a high return on investment while increasing efficiencies and customer service.

"TopSchool's SLM combined with Regent Enterprise will provide institutions with a power house solution that will allow them to easily and effectively manage information in a way they've never been able to do before."
