Under new CEO, OnCourse Systems for Education grows 70% in two-year span

PRLog - Apr. 10, 2014 - GIBBSBORO, N.J. -- There is a revolution in K.12 school management software, and OnCourse CEO Georgia Gallicchio isn’t afraid to admit that she fired the first shot.

“Here’s the bottom line: educators are overburdened, and they want an “all-in-one” system.  Nobody wants to waste their time switching between ten different systems, and that’s all that was out there until we decided to solve this problem.”

With more than a third of the company’s home state now flying the OnCourse banner (and schools in 41 states following suit), Gallicchio’s reputation as a relentless innovator has only gained steam.

Gallicchio was elevated to Chief Executive Officer in 2012.  During her time as CMO from 2007-2012, she was regarded as the catalyst of OnCourse’s explosive growth into 27 new states.

This expansion was especially surprising for occurring at the height of economic and regulatory uncertainty for K-12 schools.  At a time when schools were desperate for answers, Gallicchio pushed for high-tech solutions.  “We do not stop innovating.  Our goal is best-in-class technology and services that engage educators, students, and parents.”

While competitors were retreating into core offerings, Gallicchio pushed OnCourse to diversify and introduced new scalability measures into a rapidly-expanding company.

By the turn of 2014, staff growth had more than doubled, and the one millionth OnCourse user account was celebrated.  Gallicchio also spearheaded the release of three ambitious new products, OnCourse Evaluate, Special Education, and most recently, OnCourse SGO.

In doing so, the company’s suite achieved the coveted mix of traditional K12 needs (special education, state reporting) and emerging needs (teacher evaluation, student growth objectives).

“Quite simply, we’ve developed the only all-in-one solution for total school management using the most advanced web technology available,” says Gallicchio.  “By offering new levels of connectivity, we can bring schools more convenience than they’ve ever had before.”

Gallicchio points to the desire for an “all-in-one” solution as the reason for 50% of NJ clients acquiring additional OnCourse  modules, and 25% going to the full SIS or all-in-one.

This, Gallicchio says, is what makes the OnCourse offering one-of-a-kind.  “No SIS in the country is doing what we’re doing,” she says.

Mainstay SIS standalones are finding themselves on the losing end of an arms race, scrambling to tack on features to meet the growing demand for an “all-in-one” solution, of which OnCourse is now the sole provider.

Gallicchio is unfazed by competitors riding OnCourse’s wake.

“There’s a reason why no other provider offers each of its modules individually; candidly, it’s because most of them were half-baked additions just to be able to check off boxes on RFPs. This is why we are growing fastest: we offer a user experience unlike any other, from the friendliness of the technology to the most passionate customer service available, hands down.”

When asked whether she had contributed to the end of the standalone SIS, she responded quickly. “We are revolutionaries; we do what’s necessary.”
