Patrick Godfrey for Rowland Hall School in Salt Lake City, Utah, I’m the CIO here. We’ve been with Veracross since the 2010-11 school year. That year we jumped all in with everything; financial, admissions, the whole 9 yards. We jumped in and Rowland Hall is pre-k through 12th grade.
I think two things that really attracted me to Veracross; one was when I started at Rowland Hall, my head of school said you need to find a system that will tie everything together. We were Blackbaud, we had Financial Edge, Razors Edge, Accounting Edge, PowerSchool, and so we were entering data in multiple systems, multiple logins, hosting on-site, lots of problems.
I got a flyer in the mail, threw it away, my wife actually was helping me that day at the office, pulled it out, and said you should really look at this. So that was kinda how we started down the path. You know, single sign-on database, single database, as well as that whole account structure is just fantastic with the company. We’re super pleased.
