eFinancePLUS Mobile App

Empowering teachers with a mobile app that provides critical student information anytime, anywhere.

PowerSchool

Their Goal

PowerSchool, previously known as SunGard, provides software to over 8 million students in over 1,500 school districts throughout the United States. They were looking for an app that could be used as a tool for faculty and staff that utilizes the PowerSchool suite of school products.

PowerSchool needed the solution to not only be easy to use, but easy for their developers to maintain.

Our Approach

We were up to the challenge. After a discovery period and project planning, our team developed a solution that solved both issues. We built and designed a cross-platform administration app for both iOS and Android. 

eFinance App

Instead of creating a native app for both iOS and Android, which would have required their developers to have knowledge in both architectures, we instead chose Ionic - a platform that leverages front-end web technologies to create a single page web app.

Since PowerSchool's developers had a good working knowledge of the web technologies Ionic uses, it was a perfect fit for their needs.

Results

The app quickly reached 5,000 installs and continues to grow. The faculty of multiple districts using PowerSchool’s app can now view their pay stubs, administrative calendar, tax forms and various other administration information. The mobile app for eSchoolPLUS enhances an already attractive K-12 software product and will help PowerSchool rise to the top of the class in a competitive marketplace.
