As summer winds to a close and students return to the classroom, the pressure is once again on schools to provide the highest quality education possible while complying with federal and state mandates and operating on fewer resources than in the past.  With reduced funding, higher enrollments, and other cutbacks, educational institutions need real-world business solutions that will streamline functions, integrate processes across the organization, and deliver cost savings and a substantial return-on-investment.
