Ames Community School District is one of Iowa’s largest districts, whose commitment to student excellence requires efficient processing of personnel applications for teachers, educational assistants, administrators, and support staff. To achieve this goal, they recognized a need for a sophisticated document imaging and management solution, and chose Optix based on its flexibility and specialized support for the Macintosh platform.
“Optix is allowing us to consolidate and manage application data received in hard copy and online, to provide access to personnel materials to principals throughout the district, and to reclaim floor space previously occupied by paper filing cabinets,” said William Schoenenberger, Director of Technology for Ames Community School District. “Thanks to rapid deployment and comprehensive training – which took only a week – we were able to reap immediate benefits.”
Ultimately, Ames Community School District aims to integrate Optix with their online application for even greater operational gains. Corresponding documents can be scanned and matched up with their online counterparts to create complete applicant files quickly and efficiently.
“We are proud that Ames County School selected Optix to better manage their information-intensive personnel processes,” said Jim Small, mindwrap President. “Adding Ames Community School District to our customer roster demonstrates that Optix directly satisfies the complex needs of the K-12 marketplace.”
