Using the School Cash Suite, Palm Beach was able to integrate other critical systems including meal plans, point of sale software, and student information systems. KEV Group completed a full integration in just twelve weeks and now the district seamlessly manages all student activity fund payments including cash, check and lunch payments online through one comprehensive system, with high parent participation rates.
Painless and swift implementations have been paramount to KEV’s success and differentiation, as has its ability to deal with all funds, not just those collected online. “One of the key benefits of our solution is that all modules interact with each other. No matter how funds are collected, at the school, in cash, or online, all transactions are automatically posted to the accounting ledger,” affirms Belzberg. This increases efficiencies and prevents cash mismanagement. Although the accounting module is the backbone of KEV’s solution, it is the complete integration of all the modules of the School Cash Suite (accounting, online payments, student obligations and a virtual register) that provides the transparency, ease-of- use and fraud prevention capabilities to Districts and their schools.
Moving forward, the company plans on increasing resources available to its customers by continuing to foster and promote the communication between them. “We will do this via user group conferences, our Resource Center, and our training and learning materials,” claims Belzberg. This goes hand-in-hand with a high level of customer service. “As we grow at a remarkably quick pace, it is important that we continue to provide individualized and high-end customer service to every one of our constituents,” he concludes.
