The Principals New Software Pal

An online, customizable paperless solution for the full range of the document submission process, a groundbreaking innovation with the potential to revolutionize the way schools do business.
SHOREWOOD, Ill. - Sept. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- How many aspiring principals dream of the day they can be immersed in a perpetual waterfall of paperwork? How many principal come home at the end of the day saying, “I'm just thankful that spending the last 13 hours trying to balance nickels and dimes kept me away from meaningful interaction with students”? What principals relish the time spent cutting the tension between faculty members who resent their perceived micro-managing of resource allocation? Who counts it a blessing to discover that half the year's supply of paper and ink has been exhausted within the first three weeks of class time?

Luckily, there were no trick questions in that quiz; 0+0+0+0=0!

Women and men who pursue a career in educational administration do so out of a passion for learning; they develop, hone, and utilize their vital skills to serve as captains of the ship on their students' educational voyage, all for the benefit of the children entrusted to them. Administrative concerns, and the documentation that comes with them, are essential to running a tight ship. All too often, unfortunately, the endless shuffle of paperwork, inventory, and financial reconciliation can make many principals feel as if they spend all their time scraping barnacles off the bottom of the ship.

Enter: Chicago-area IT specialists Jason Richmond and Thomas Egizio, creators of

Homeroom247™, an online, customizable paperless solution for the full range of the document submission process, a groundbreaking innovation with the potential to revolutionize the way schools do business.

“What we've developed,” explains Richmond, “is a one-stop portal which simplifies the

approval form request (AFR) process from start-to-finish, while at the same time ensuring accuracy. We cut out the time wasted looking for the right forms, filling out the wrong forms, checking and triple checking, and tracking down lost, misfiled, or overlooked documents. The goal is to free principals and teachers to focus their time on their vocation, and the feedback we've received has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Homeroom247™'s customizable system allows users, whether at the school or district level, to determine their own unique process needs, and to distribute access and responsibility to the correct parties, and only the correct parties. With a user interface custom-crafted for each client, users encounter a portal which is both visually appealing and intuitive to use; at all stages of approval routing, all authorized team members are able to log into the system and see the precise status of any request. Reports are generated automatically, ensuring accuracy and timeliness, and are archived and easily accessible for future review, comparison, or audit.

“Time is money,” says Egizio. “But money is also money. In an age when schools are

experiencing critical supply shortages, the positive financial impact of going paperless is far from negligible, and at the same time we're offering an environmentally-conscious, green solution.”

An efficient, effective paperless AFR solution can save more than time and money; it can strengthen relationships within the workplace. For Richmond, that's the most integral benefit to Homeroom247™: “If a principal finds that there's $50 or $100 or $500 unaccountable in a department's budget, of course he or she has to track it down. It's almost always the result of a misfiled or misplaced approval request or receipt, but the moment you ask someone to account for missing money, there's an ambiance of tension, accusation, and defensiveness created. Who wants to work in that environment? A reliable automated solution can eliminate those conversations.”

Richmond adds, “Of course, in the rare case of actual financial impropriety or gross negligence, Homeroom247™'s P-Card optimization and tracking features give the administrator an instant extra wall of defense.”

As the world moves rapidly toward paperless solutions, schools would do well to do the same. Homeroom247™ has proven a great enhancement to the processes of its clients. By liberating administrators from the grueling demands of incessant paper reporting, Homeroom247™ has the potential to be the new best pal of principals nationwide.
