“Accessibility is our number one reason for switching to AAWeb,” said Bridget Boardman, district accountant for Millard School District. “The business office will now have access to all databases within the district. This will help tremendously in financial reporting, auditing, accounts payable inquiries, and 1099 reporting.”
According to Beth Senn, vice president of professional services for Harris, Millard schools previously used the AAPro solution for over 15 years and will increase their level of control over the various schools with the AAWeb upgrade.
“AAWeb will allow Millard Public Schools to more effectively manage their 28 sites with the new web-based application. District office personnel can view individual schools’ activity online, as well as generate consolidated reports for district reporting purposes,” said Senn.
The AAWeb (PDF) solution is offered via the “Software as a Service” model, signifying that Harris hosts the program and provides the maintenance, updates, and backups. It features various accounting functions, and also offers district controls like tracking multiple schools within a single district and multi-level user permissions.
“I envision AAWeb will allow for the ability to access from any computer; and, as the district accountant, I can more efficiently answer questions regarding transactions, reconciliations, etc. arising from the individual schools,” said Boardman.
