Choice Reflects RenWeb's Convenience, Service and Ability To Improve Communications by Linking Administration, Classroom and Parents
August 9, 2006 — RenWeb School Management Software, the industry leader in next-generation, web-based school management software, announced today that it has reached the 600-school milestone with the addition of Tall Oaks Classical School , in Newark , DE . The school is the 181 st to join the RenWeb family this year, and its purchase comes less than three months after the arrival of the Company's 500 th customer.
In addition to buying RenWeb's integrated feature set, Tall Oaks has also purchased the company's Fundraising PRO™ fundraising software. As a member of the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS), Tall Oaks Classical School will also receive a discount for the software. ACCS is the first association to negotiate a discount for the purchase of RenWeb software, offering a valuable benefit to its member schools.
RenWeb's arrival at the 600-school milestone comes just two weeks after its announcement of a strategic alliance with Sage Software , a leading financial software and services provider with 2.6 million customers in North America . Sage's fund accounting solution is now incorporated with RenWeb's integrated feature set.
Brad Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Renweb, stated, “The arrival of Tall Oaks as our 600 th school, coming on the heels of our Sage Software alliance, is another powerful validator of our leadership in web-based school management software. Tall Oaks' selection of integrated software packaging as well as Fundraising PRO also underscores the full capability of our integrated solution to achieve schools' administrative, academic and fundraising goals.”
Don Post, Headmaster of Tall Oaks Classical School, said, “We chose RenWeb over other providers not only because of its ability to promote communication among the office, classroom and home, but also because of the convenience and service it offers. Along with other schools in the Classical Christian movement, we believe parents play the critical role in assuring their children's academic success, and they can use RenWeb's services to keep track of their students' progress, attendance, assignments and more online. Moreover, RenWeb's web-based tools are available anytime and anywhere, at home or at the office, and the Company will actually convert our files and set the system up for our school, at no extra charge.”
Milestone Schools Exemplify RenWeb Value Proposition
RenWeb's partnership with each of its milestone schools exemplifies a critical element of the company's value proposition:
• 500 th School – C.S. Lewis Academy , Newberg , OR , May 2006: The school purchased the software using funds from a single fundraising event where ten families each donated five hundred dollars towards the purchase of the software, demonstrating the affordability of the solution and parental recognition of its communication benefits.
• 400 th School – Little Rock Christian School , Little Rock , AR , November, 2005: The ability to meet the needs of this 1200-student school underscores the comprehensive nature of its solution.
• 300 th School – Northeastern Conference of Seventh Day Adventists, June 2005: RenWeb's 300 th school was part of this 19-school conference in which all of the schools purchased RenWeb, demonstrating the Company's ability to provide consolidated results across a multi-school organization.
• 200 th School – St. Pius X, Dallas , TX , November 2004 : The choice of RenWeb by this Catholic elementary and middle school underscores its value as a solution for public and private schools of all denominations.
“The history of our milestones highlights our ability to meet the needs of schools of every size, denomination, budget and methodology,” said Lee. “Our accelerated growth demonstrates that RenWeb has the right technology at the right time in this market.”
