Imagine having a comprehensive, web-based software solution to manage all financial, procurement, and human-resources functions of your school district from a single source. The NCS4School Business solution, from Mesa, Ariz.-based NCS Learn—a division of NCS Pearson—promises to deliver just that.
NCS4School Business is a fully integrated suite of online applications designed for the K-12 business office. It consists of three application modules: Finance, Procurement, and Human Resources. The software is accessible from a single web portal, and administrators can use it to track projects and grants across multiple fiscal years.
The NCS4School Finance applications offer secure, real-time access to financial data via the internet. The suite includes general ledger, budgeting, accounts payable, cash ledger, asset management, accounts receivable, billing, cost allocation, project and activity accounting, grant management, and financial report writer applications.
NCS4School Procurement covers purchasing, requisitions, receiving, invoice matching, inventory control, and work order management. The software’s Human Resources suite helps districts manage HR functions from employee recruitment to retirement. The suite addresses benefits administration, payroll, personnel administration, position management, professional development, and health and safety management.
The NCS4School Business solution is scalable for large and small school districts without compromising security, reliability, or performance, according to the company. NCS Learn also provides implementation, training, data conversion, and technical support.
