Our clients derive many benefits from the Digital Schools application.

Included below are testimonials from our clients, demonstrating just a few of the many examples of how Digital Schools helped them achieve a full return on their investment:

 

NCOE

“The software has made it so much easier to get items approved while busy directors are on the go. The ability to log in anywhere has increased efficiency significantly. Additional, being able to attach the additional attachments and paperwork to help streamline the process.”

Lauren Mallin, Technology Training and Support Services Manager

Lakeside Union Elementary School District

“Implementing Digital Schools has allowed us to review every aspect of how we pay our employees. I feel confident that our payroll is more accurate than it’s even been before. One example is how we pay for classified workers in our before and after school program. DS helped us realize that this group of employees should be contracted, and we are no longer paying them on timesheets, eliminating 30-40 manual inputs of timesheets each month.”

Erin Garcia, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services

Damon Smith

“Distinguishing Digital Schools from other market offerings are several key factors. It is premier in its position control and human resources functionality. Unlike other companies, this is where Digital Schools began its development. Equally enticing, the architecture is state-of-the-art. It enables multitasking with multiple screens/transactions open simultaneously. And it is extremely flexible, a must have feature for any business tool of the future. DS’s vision forward is inspirational.”

Imperial Valley County Office of Education
(Previous Associate Superintendent Alameda County
     Office of Education)

NCOE

“When Napa COE and Districts selected Digital Schools Suite|Plus as our new financial system we were looking for a system that both integrated standard schools financial accounting along with the latest in technology and accountability. The Digital Schools Suite|Plus met these criteria with its all web-based access, secure off-site data warehousing and its dynamic payroll/finance approval workflow system. We appreciate how Digital Schools has allowed us to be a collaborative partner in a community of users with a voice on how the system will continue to integrate new innovative functionality.”

Kelly Bucy, Director of Fiscal Services

 

Kingsburg Elementary School District

“DS has given us the opportunity to automate and keep track of position within our district so as not to overstaff. The timesheet functionality has eliminated the hand entry of each timesheet to populate budget lines saving hours of time as well as money by utilizing categorical monies first.”

Carol Bray, Director Human Resources

Linda Grundhoffer

“While position control and human resources functionality were compelling, what really drew me to the Digital Schools application is the architecture. It is web-based, with a graphic interface enabling users to view multiple screens at once, and it is built upon a highly flexible platform. This is definitely state of the art engineering.”

Linda Grundhoffer, DS Advisor and School Business Consultant

Salinas Elementary School District

“Digital Schools has created a new technology direction for districts and counties by providing, in a cost effective manner, the market’s most flexible, scalable, technologically advanced, easy to use, and responsive software for finance, payroll, human resources and purchasing. They define ‘leading edge’ with their premier software."

Jerry Stratton, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services,
Salinas City Elementary School District

Kings Canyon Unified

“I view Digital Schools first and foremost as an accountability application. With literally every timesheet transaction captured in a date driven fashion and authorization required, there is absolute accountability throughout the district for services performed. With the first year of use, we saved $300,000.”

Adele Nikkel, Chief Business Official, Kings Canyon Unified

Antelope Valley Union High School District

“We’ve been Digital Schools users for years. While I can say many positive things about the application and its benefits, I really want to emphasize how much I appreciated their implementation process and, through the years, how much I respect the DS Support staff. It’s not often, if ever, that I send Godiva chocolates to a vendor. DS Support is on my chocolate list!”

Kathy Jarman, Personnel Manager,
Antelope Valley Union High School District
