March 29th, 2007 - RenWeb School Management Software, the industry leader in next-generation, web-based school management software, announced today that it has reached the 700-school milestone with the addition of five new schools from the Christian Unified School District of San Diego, CA.
In addition to switching to RenWeb, the Christian Unified School District also purchased Sage Software’s MIP Fund Accounting Solution to manage school finances. RenWeb announced last year a strategic alliance with Sage Software, adding Sage’s financial management solution to its current offerings. Sage seamlessly integrates with RenWeb software to provide a comprehensive school management package, complete with convenient features such as Pay Easy and Pay Now that allow parents to make and schedule automatic school payments online.
Founded in 1965 by Dr. Tim LaHaye, co-author of the popular Left Behind series, the Christian Unified School District today hosts more than 1000 students at five schools—three elementary, one junior high and one senior high school.
Brad Lee, RenWeb’s Chief Executive Officer, stated “The decision of the Christian Unified School District – one of America’s most high-profile Christian school organizations – to purchase RenWeb for all five of its schools highlights our momentum and industry leadership, as well as our superior ability to meet the needs of entire school systems. And Christian Unified’s purchase of Sage underscores the added value our alliance with one of the world’s leading financial software providers brings to schools that want a powerful financial solution that integrates easily into their operating system.”
Scott Meadows, Principal of Christian Unified Junior and Senior High said “Christian Unified Schools made the switch to RenWeb because with more than 1000 students at 5 different schools on 3 separate campuses, we needed seamless and easy integration in a single database and the ability to instantly connect parents, faculty and staff via the Web. Before RenWeb, it was hard to maintain constant and clear communication between the schools as we used several different operating systems for our junior and senior high schools and none for our elementary schools. With Sage’s financial management solution and RenWeb’s real time, online access we have everything we need.”
RenWeb is enabling administrators, teachers, parents and students in more than 700 schools across North America to “switch on the power” as the leading provider of next-generation Internet-based school management software. RenWeb’s unmatched convenience and service includes complete installation of the software including conversion of data, all as part of one, low license fee, along with a client interface that provides easy access to more than 150 integrated features. Developed by a university dean, RenWeb is leading the migration of schools from client server-based to web-based systems, bringing administration, parents, students and the classroom together with anytime, anywhere access to a full range of services.
