"It was important for us to find a solution that integrated data tools we were familiar with. Based on the MS Office platform, AptaFund provided a format which we could easily manage," said the district's Finance Director Jason Dandoy.
The AptaFund 4 release is a centrally hosted, web-based, Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that can accommodate school districts of any size. It features an enhanced user interface equipping customers with a powerful, yet easy to navigate accounting solution for managing and reporting data.
Turner USD is comprised of eight schools, with a student enrollment of approximately 4,000. For several years the district operated Datateam's FA2 accounting software, which they eventually outgrew.
Dandoy expects AptaFund to have a significant impact by reducing human errors and increasing productivity.
"Change is always difficult, but the benefits AptaFund had to offer outweighed the apprehension of change," he said.
Dandoy recommends the AptaFund fund accounting solution to other schools, stating, "For schools currently working with FA2, anticipate a consistently seamless transition. As part of the implementation process, Harris representatives assisted us in reviewing work processes and ensuring that the transition was as efficient as possible."
"We couldn't have imagined an easier transition."
