Texas District Deploys SIF Integration Tools


Frisco Independent School District in northeast Texas has chosen Mizuni SIF Integration Tools for its growing technology and data processing needs. The district, which enrolls about 31,000 K-12 students, has experienced annual growth of between 12 percent and 30 percent over the last decade, and its demands for more efficient and reliable data management have subsequently skyrocketed.

Prior to implementing the Mizuni application, one of FISD's common issues was the inefficiency of multi-point redundant data entry. "To keep up with our growth in the past, we allocated up to five full-time employees for data entry during our spring and summer hiring season," said Melissa Fouche, FISD's Chief Technology Officer. "The Mizuni Solution significantly reduces our data entry time, allowing us to deliver more teacher-based services."

In addition to the features of the software itself, FISD cited Mizuni's customer service as integral to their choice. Explained FISD database administrator Jayme Endicott, "We can depend on Mizuni Support to quickly resolve an issue and clearly explain how it came to resolution."

Finally, added Endicott, "Teachers now have access to all of their instructional resources during summer professional development. This allows them to start fully trained and prepared for a successful school year."
