RICHMOND, VA (October 14, 2015) – Rowan-Salisbury School District in Salisbury, N.C., has deployed K12 Enterprise’s financial and HR management software.

Rowan was a participant in K12 Enterprise’s Early Adopter Program, in which districts that had been using the company’s SunPac software opted to migrate to the modern, Microsoft Windows-based accounting and business management solution.

The Rowan-Salisbury district has approximately 20,000 students and 3,000 employees in 35 schools and five central office locations.

Early on in the process, Rowan-Salisbury Finance Officer Tara Trexler said that the increased functionality and enhanced efficiencies for processing and extracting information were the two main reasons for upgrading to K12 Enterprise. Now that the migration is essentially complete, Ms. Trexler provided an update:

“Feedback we’ve received regarding online approvals has been very positive, as our department budget managers spend the majority of their time away from their offices and in our school buildings,” said Ms. Trexler. “The convenience and efficiency the new system provides are exactly what we were looking for in the software upgrade. We’re also enjoying the reporting capabilities now available to us. Being able to drill down to detail information right within a general ledger summary report, taking us from a big picture view to specific transaction information, is one of the favorite features for our budget managers and principals.”

K12 Enterprise Implementation Consultant Ally Barfield worked closely with Rowan-Salisbury personnel during the transition. “I’m extremely pleased with the way the team has dug into the software to take advantage of the new functionality,” she said. “By fully leveraging the utility of the system, Rowan-Salisbury will become more efficient and productive than ever before.”
