April 21, 2011—Harris School Solutions is pleased to announce the upcoming release of AptaFund 4, the web-based fund accounting solution for K-12 schools. AptaFund 4 will feature a new graphical user interface (GUI) and will be released in phases, beginning with the human resources module.

“We are very excited about AptaFund 4 because it addresses the requests we have received from our customers. The enhanced, web-based user interface (UI) allows districts to easily manage and report on their human resources data,” stated Vice President of Sales and Marketing Deana Kovalcik.

The AptaFund 4 solution is a centrally hosted, fully integrated, online fund accounting and business management solution for school districts with an enrollment under 15,000 students. In addition to the recent enhancements in state reporting, AptaFund 4 is GAAP, GASB 34, and USFR compliant, and provides multi-level security safeguards for financial information. AptaFund 4 also offers over 120 customizable reports and a highly secure internet data center, with transaction tracing capabilities through AptaTrace.

“The web-based interface will be rolled out in phases with human resources, payroll setup and payroll processing planned for release in 2011,” said Harris Vice President of Research and Development Scott Schollenberger. “The new web UI will be available alongside the existing AptaFund thick client, allowing users to transition easily and at their own pace.”

The AptaFund 4 suite includes, but is not limited to, the following modules: financial, general ledger, state reporting, budget development, human resources, Employee Services Portal (ESP), purchasing, accounts payable, capital assets (non-profit compliant), and bank management. The modules are fully-integrated, aiding personnel in the timely completion of back-office and fund accounting procedures.

“AptaFund allows me to quickly move between modules. I can transition from payroll to accounts payable without any wait,” said Malcolm Public Schools Business Manager Julia Lostroh.

The full line of Harris School Solutions software provides numerous options for student information, school nutrition, school business, employee time and attendance, adult-vocational education, data backup/recovery and transportation management.
