Leading K-12 administrative software and technology services company, SunGard K-12 Education has selected ANCILE Solutions, Inc., as its premier solutions provider for learning and performance solutions. As a result of the alliance, SunGard K-12 will migrate much of its existing eLearning content and create future content for eSchoolPLUS, BusinessPLUS, and eFinancePLUS with ANCILE uPerform Express. Districts will also have the option to license ANCILE uPerform Express to customize and create learning content to benefit school staff and district administrators.

According to Joel Hames, SunGard K-12’s senior product manager, ANCILE uPerform Express will put a powerful professional development tool at the fingertips of SunGard K-12’s customers. “This tool will complement our intuitive software’s robust documentation and built-in user support,” says Hames. “With ANCILE uPerform Express, district IT staff can easily create procedural documents, simulations, and eLearning courses to help bring new users quickly up to speed on district-specific practices for using our software to support student achievement and manage district business operations.”

Patrick Dunlap, ANCILE vice president of sales and professional services, welcomes this new alliance.

“SunGard K-12 supports one of every six students nationally, so we’re very excited about this alliance with a lead developer of administrative software for K-12 school districts,” says Dunlap. “Our mission is to enable companies to enhance customer satisfaction and help improve end-user adoption and proficiency. We do this by providing solutions that improve workforce skills and competency as employees interact with business applications. SunGard K-12 joins well-respected companies that use ANCILE software to help their customers enable employee performance and ensure effective business outcomes.”
