SRB Education Solutions and KEV Group Unveil Partnership
Toronto, June 21, 2012 – KEV Group, the North American leader in school generated funds management and school fraud prevention and SRB Education Solutions Inc., the provider of industry leading student information, assessment, library management, and, financial management tools are pleased to announce their new partnership and commitment to provide seamless online payment and fraud prevention options to the K-12 education sector.
KEV Group’s suite of products (accounting, payment processing, point of sale and financial analytics) are designed to add efficiency, safety and security to the everyday activities of schools, districts, students and parents. Limiting cash in the schools and increasing transparency of the cash that does come in, decreases the risk of bullying, reduces classroom distractions and ensures maximum efficiency for all users.
As two of the largest education administration software vendors in Ontario, KEV and SRB serve the majority of Ontario School Boards. In fact, over 70% of Ontario school boards are using part of KEV’s flagship School Cash Enterprise Suite, which includes the recently ECNO endorsed School Cash Online payment module.
To continue providing our clients with the best possible solution, KEV and SRB have agreed to integrate seamlessly across both companies’ product lines, leading to massive time savings as school officials spend less time managing vendors and technology and more time focusing on education.
SRB’s Trillium Student Information Suite, Ontario’s #1 SIS choice, is the first of SRB’s products to be integrated with KEV, ensuring real time transfer of data between the two systems, enhancing school board’s robust database, and making the integration platform seamless to improve administration and accountability of payments.
“SRB and KEV have been working together for School Districts in Canada for over 10 years. We are very excited to be taking that cooperation to the next level in providing transparent integration, which schools and school districts need to more effectively serve their communities,” states Dave Love, the incoming President of SRB Education Solutions. “SRB software touches nearly three million students across Canada and into the US, and strong partners such as KEV help to reduce the amount of time stakeholders spend in administration leaving more time and resources dedicated to student success.”
“For over 15 years, KEV has been a leader in school cash management. Now serving over 6,000 schools across North America, our goal is to track and streamline every dollar that comes into schools. Over the past few years, our online payment system has been adopted by over one hundred thousand parents allowing families to pay online for yearbooks, class trips, lunches, donations, adult education classes and so much more. One integrated payment and accounting solution helps provide convenience to Ontario families, audit tracking and fraud prevention for schools and Districts,” says Bram Belzberg, CEO of KEV Group.
“Our integration with SRB demonstrates our commitment to solving all cash related issues for School Districts. For the first time ever, Ontario educators will have one fully integrated student information, school finance, online payment and parent portal experience. This level of integration is industry leading and is the best way to help protect against fraud. We look forward to working with SRB in growing and developing our partnership.”]
