Infinite Campus Announces Finance, Human Resources and Payroll Suite of Products
April 26, 2012 – Blaine, Minn. – Infinite Campus announces the general availability of Campus Finance, Human Resources (HR) and Payroll products. These give our existing student information system (SIS) customers a powerful suite of integrated products to improve productivity and reduce costs. These business solutions are designed from the ground up to meet the needs of K12 school districts.
Infinite Campus initiated the research and development for these products in 2009 with investments in experienced staff from industry leaders including K12 business operations, finance, human resources, and commercial software development along with core development experience from within the company. The design for these products was guided by a customer advisory group made up of K12 business office staff across the country.
Centennial Independent School District #12, in Circle Pines, Minn., participated in the customer advisory group. They understood the clear benefits of an integrated solution and reduced licensing costs compared to their legacy system. In September 2011, Centennial agreed to be the pilot district for the full suite of products: finance, HR and payroll. Centennial received the first beta release of the product in November 2011 and is on target for “go live” scheduled no later than July 1, 2012.
“Campus Finance, HR and Payroll are designed for schools with input from schools,” said Dan Huffman, Centennial’s Director of Business Affairs.
It is an integrated approach to data storage and will allow districts to review information using a true cost benefit approach that will aid in decision-making and help direct resources toward priorities.”
School District 54 in Schaumburg, Ill., was also a founding member of the customer advisory group and saw so much benefit in the new HR system that they chose to “go live” on the product even before the general availability announcement. Schaumburg went live on March 27, 2012 on the HR component and has already seen tangible benefits from implementing the system.
“We have been using the Campus SIS since 2009. Having the student data management system and HR integrated into one solution is a huge benefit on its own, but especially in Illinois,” said Joseph Tomchuk, Schaumburg’s Information Systems Supervisor. “We are required to gather information not just on students, but tying teacher and students together for state reporting purposes. Campus integration helps us manage this.”
Integrated state reporting functionality is delivered along with the suite of products currently available in Minnesota, Colorado, Illinois and Georgia. Based on customer demand, additional states’ reporting requirements will be incorporated into the Campus Finance, HR and Payroll applications.
“Campus Finance, HR and Payroll integration enhances the value of Campus applications. The solution delivers timely, complete and relevant district information into the hands of users, together with the ability to take appropriate action,” said Burke Stucker, Campus Finance/HR Manager. “This administrative suite of products also improves organizational efficiency by eliminating manual processes, providing access to information, and ease of usability.”
