Baltimore, MD – June 5, 2012 – Lawrence Public Schools, located on Long Island, New York, has selected K12 Enterprise, Microsoft’s leading financial and human resource management software for K-12 school systems, as its financial and HR management system.

K12 Enterprise will provide Lawrencewith its complete, fully integrated software including financial and human resource management, payroll processing, and employee self-service portal. Because K12 Enterprise is a Microsoft solution, it provides an intuitive, user-friendly interface that looks and functions like Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook.

“By utilizing today’s technology, we will be able to run our operations more effectively and be greener by generating less paper,” says Gary Schall, Superintendent of Lawrence Public Schools. “K12 Enterprise is easy-to-use and feature rich, enabling our team to accomplish tasks quickly and accurately.”

K12 Enterprise is built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software with over one million users worldwide, and provides a robust business application for the business office of K-12 school systems. K12 Enterprise also provides the specific functionality needed by K-12 school systems such as state reporting, employee self-service portal, procurement portal, HR and payroll with position control and other vital functionality.

“We understand the business of schools,” says Andrew Fass, CEO of K12 Enterprise. “With tight budgets, today’s schools need to be as efficient as possible. We’ve created software that saves time, provides transparency, and significantly decreases paper consumption.”

Lawrence was using outdated software that it acquired nearly two decades ago. The software no longer provided the functionality they needed to properly manage the business needs of the district. After an RFP process, Lawrence chose K12 Enterprise for several reasons, including its ability to accomplish so many functions in one system, ease of use, and its robust functionality.
