Partnership allows for simple yet dynamic online registration
MCHENRY, IL – Follett has selected the Gateway Suite from SRC Solutions, Inc. as its preferred and exclusive Online Registration development partner for the Follett Aspen® Student Information System.
As part of the relationship, Follett Aspen® SIS will be integrating Registration Gateway and Central Records Gateway to provide paperless end-to-end solutions for Online Registration and Electronic Cumulative Folder Management. The fully integrated solution will be known as “Gateway Suite for Aspen.”
According to George Gatsis, Senior Vice President of Technology Platforms for Follett School Solutions, Registration Gateway will allow Aspen school districts to migrate their paper-based registration processes to a simple yet dynamic online registration environment. “This will drastically improve data and document collection, and provide advanced reporting, notification, and visibility across the district,” Gatsis said.
Central Records Gateway will enhance user experience, Gatsis continued, by providing a full Online Electronic Cumulative Folder solution accessible directly from the Follett Aspen® user Interface. It is a highly customizable solution that allows documents to follow the student through his or her entire education lifecycle by incorporating user access, automated expiration and archiving, and finally parent and student document access provisioned by the district.
“Registration Gateway is the only provider to truly offer a system that can begin at the school of choice or lottery process, then take the parent experience to Online Registration and finally to Electronic Cumulative Folders,” Gatsis said.
He added SRC Solutions’ Registration Gateway rose to the top of the selection process due to several key differentiators. Singled out each of the last two years by District Administration magazine as a “Readers’ Choice Top Product,” Registration Gateway:
“SRC Solutions is excited to be working with Follett Aspen,” said Patrick Maher, CEO, SRC Solutions, Inc. “As school districts are held to stricter accountability standards, automated processes have taken hold where paper processes once reigned supreme. The Gateway Suite for Follett Aspen® takes on these challenges head on. We applaud Follett for doing their due diligence in selecting SRC Solutions – our product development, support and deployment stand second to none, and we look forward to proving this to our joint customers. Districts can typically see a 3-to-1 return on investment.”
