SunGard K-12 Educations eSchoolPLUS 4.0 Named Best of Show at ISTE 2015 by Tech & Learning

eSchoolPLUS 4.0 features responsive design.

SunGard K-12 Education’s eSchoolPLUS 4.0 was named one of the Best of Show by Tech & Learning at the 2015 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference and Expo, which was held in Philadelphia, Pa. The next-generation student information system was called a game-changer by a team of experienced educational technology advisers who reviewed new products being released at this respected international conference.

On the first day of ISTE 2015, Tech & Learning advisers, who are professional end users and editors of educational technology, scoured the show floor to investigate the latest and greatest technology solutions for K-12 education. The judges rated their impressions and then selected those technologies that have the potential to have the most impact in the classroom.

The next-generation student information system, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 is a forward-thinking solution for student information management that helps educators directly and positively impact student achievement. This latest version of the solution amplifies SunGard K-12 Education’s award-winning student information system with a smart user interface and a variety of features that promote collaboration.

According to Joel Hames, SunGard K-12 Education’s vice president of product, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 delivers on the vision of bringing a highly elegant solution with user-focused interactivity to schools. “With recent advances and increasing options in technology, today’s educator relies on a broad spectrum of devices and browsers to access their web applications,” says Hames. “eSchoolPLUS 4.0 meets educators where they are by leveraging the latest technology to create a progressive, highly usable, and forward-thinking solution for student achievement.”

With HTML5 as its core technology, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 offers the same application and user experience across any browser and choice of PC, Mac®, Chromebook™ notebook computer, and iPad® or other tablet. SunGard K-12 believes eSchoolPLUS 4.0 sets a new standard for usability with features including responsive design, advanced navigation tools, and mobile-first design concepts, such as tablet-friendly icons and pages and gesture-friendly screens. The result is a very friendly user experience, regardless of which of the multitude of devices and browsers educators and administrators are using to access this web-based application.

This solution also provides advanced tools and at-a-glance insights that promote collaboration between administrators, teachers, parents, and students. Highly customizable smart search functionality throughout the software puts ad-hoc reporting capabilities at the fingertips of educators. And, with SunGard K-12’s hallmark PLUS 360 Notifications, eSchoolPLUS 4.0 mines student data to help increase user efficiency by allowing educational stakeholders to choose to be automatically alerted when certain events occur or criteria are met.

For Hames, these new features, along with eSchoolPLUS 4.0’s well-received standards-based gradebook, create a solution that is very responsive to the needs of today’s educator. “With this transition, we’ve taken a very stable, proven, reliable workhorse of a student information system and transformed it with advances that our customers and others have said will make a real difference in education,” he says. “We’re pleased that the Tech & Learning advisers agree that this next-generation student information system can be a game-changer for K-12 education and support educators in doing the incredibly important work they do for this nation’s children.”
