K12 Enterprise and SchoolRecruiter Technology Alliance Means Reduced Administrative Tasks for School Districts
Today’s budget conscious school districts find it necessary to reduce administrative tasks and streamline systems. The integration between K12 Enterprise, Microsoft’s leading financial and HR management software for K-12 school systems, and SchoolRecruiter, a leading applicant tracking and hiring management cloud software designed specifically for K-12 education, reduces data entry and simplifies processes for HR and payroll departments in school districts.
The Central Bucks School District, Pennsylvania’s third largest district, asked K12 Enterprise to build applicant tracking functionality into the product. “We heavily investigated the market to see what applicant tracking software existed before developing our own,” said Andrew Fass, CEO for K12 Enterprise. “When we found SchoolRecruiter, we knew it was the perfect fit. It utilizes cloud-based technology and has an intuitive interface making it the right application to compliment K12 Enterprise.”
“It’s important that our technology components work together to serve the needs of our administrative team,” says Raymond Kase, Director of IT for Central Bucks School District. “The integration between K12 Enterprise and SchoolRecruiter means less data entry, fewer mistakes, and assurance that we have accurate personnel information. It also allows our hiring managers and principals to have easy access to recruiting data and has made our hiring process more efficient.”
By having the two applications work together, employee information is completed in SchoolRecruiter during the application process and easily transferred into K12 Enterprise when the hiring process is completed. Information might include basic address and contact data, hire date, certifications, supporting documentation such as fingerprint, background check, and diplomas. The automatic flow of data from SchoolRecruiter to K12 Enterprise not only saves HR and payroll departments extra steps in data entry, but also reduces the risk of errors from having data keyed in multiple times.
“Entering the same data in multiple systems can quickly become an administrative hassle that adds costs,” said Fass. “We are very pleased that our partnership with Netchemia, the creators of SchoolRecruiter, will potentially streamline HR and payroll functionality for school systems across the country.”
“SchoolRecruiter was built specifically to make the process of applicant tracking and hiring management a more automated and efficient process,” said Nick De Buyl, Director of Sales at Netchemia. “The integration with K12 Enterprise solidifies that goal.”
