Infor CloudSuite Public Sector to help school district through digital transformation
NEW YORK – Sept. 7, 2021 – Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that Atlanta Public Schools has chosen to upgrade its current single-tenant system to Infor CloudSuite™ Public Sector. Atlanta Public Schools is one of the largest school districts in the state of Georgia, serving approximately 51,000 students across 87 schools and five programs. The district is organized into nine K-12 clusters with 64 traditional schools, 19 charter schools, six partner schools, two alternative schools and five alternative programs. With Infor’s cloud-based solutions, the district will have the ability to apply automated workflows and role-based security to tighten access to sensitive data, and allow its stakeholders to access data anytime, anywhere quickly and securely with Infor Go®, a native mobile application that provides a centralized access-point for Infor and proprietary apps with single sign-on (SSO).
“The journey to transform our enterprise resource planning (ERP) system has taken us a few years up to this point. We look forward to our continued partnership with both Infor and RPI Consultants Inc. to move our Global HR and S3 ERP systems to the new multi-tenant cloud platform,” said Olufemi Aina, executive director of information technology at Atlanta Public Schools. “During the upgrade process, we will be removing customizations that have been in place for years, therefore making it easier to test and deploy future upgrades.”
Infor CloudSuite Public Sector is a complete suite of applications made for all levels of government, including state, county, municipal, education, public safety, transit, and utilities. The purpose-built software includes solutions for budgeting, finance, procurement, public safety, asset management, human resources, payroll, governance risk and compliance, and community development and regulations. With Infor CloudSuite Public Sector, Atlanta Public Schools will help ensure that critical business functions continue to run smoothly and securely, while expanding cloud-based learning and performance management to deliver better and safer student and teacher experiences.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges for school districts including shifting how teachers engage with students as well as budget uncertainties due to reduced tax rolls. As a result, many districts are accelerating their business and technology transformation efforts to better respond to the challenges of today's changing world,” said Steve Potvin, Infor vice president. “With Infor, organizations can realize instant cost benefits, take advantage of the convenience of an always-connected system and remain at ease with more reliability.”
