TORONTO, ON – KEVCon ’23 – (May 17, 2023) — KEV Group today presented Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) with the KEVvies Award for Eastern Canada, based on CEPEO’s notable achievements utilizing the SchoolCash platform. The KEVvies Awards recognize school districts that have demonstrated vision, leadership, hard work, and innovation using KEV’s school activity fund software solutions. Every year, Districts from each of three geographical regions – in the United States, Western Canada, and Eastern Canada – are recognized for their achievements.
“CEPEO demonstrated an inspiring commitment in leveraging our school activity funds management solution,” said Jennifer Sutton, Chief Customer Officer at KEV Group. “The speed and professionalism with which the SchoolCash platform was embraced by their schools and 17,000-plus students was extremely impressive. It made CEPEO the obvious choice for the 2023 KEVvies Award for Eastern Canada.”
In 2021, CEPEO set out to modernize their school activity funds management with a best-in class solution that would provide seamless integration between school-level accounting and online payments to maximize the productivity of their staff and improve transparency. Having a French-language system was a must, as was a solution with a strong market presence and user base. They chose the SchoolCash platform after an extensive review of available options.
“With SchoolCash, we have full visibility, control, and management of our school activity funds across the district,” commented noted Amélie Gosselin-Charron, Administratrice des finances. “And we’re extremely pleased with how well our staff helped drive adoption of SchoolCash both internally and with our parents/guardians. We’ve achieved a 90% adoption rate which we’ve been told is an incredible achievement for a district that’s only been using the system for 2 years.”
The district’s use of SchoolCash Forms and Lunchbox has also helped drive strong adoption rates. With SchoolCash Forms, parents benefit from the convenience of paying for fees and completing forms at the same time, while the district benefits from numerous time and cost savings. Lunchbox dramatically simplifies the management of their schools’ lunch fundraising programs which allows their staff to focus on more value-added work. Parents benefit from a secure, user-friendly online ordering solution that they can access with their existing SchoolCash Online credentials.
