Dallas District Goes All in with ERP Provider

The Lancaster Independent School District (LISD) in Dallas has decided to replace its current finance, human resources and payroll systems by expanding an existing partnership. The district will add Prologic Technology Systems' business software to the Prologic student information system that the district, with about 7,300 students, already uses.

LISD has used the company's Total Education Administrative Management Solution (TEAMS) software since 2012 to digitally support enrollment, gradebooks, attendance, reporting by teacher level, assignments, transfers and transcripts.

With the complete enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, the school district will now have a fully integrated system that will link every department into a single, shared database. Using a single dashboard, administrators will have access to all employee and student data.

Along with the academic information already at its disposal, school representatives now have modules that will include general ledger and journal entries, payroll, human resources, non-personnel budgeting, vendor management, procurement, accounts payable and receivable, cash flow, bank reconciliation and warehouse and fixed asset management.

"Our students, parents, teachers and clerks have been benefitting from the real-time reporting through our student information system since we transitioned to TEAMS four years ago," said LISD Student Information Systems Director April Janeway. "I look forward to our finance and HR teams receiving the same benefits that the student management team has experience from utilizing TEAMS as our student management system."
