Problem: I am Not Ready for a Disaster.
STARS is an enterprise level product that has an architecture that inherently makes it impervious to viruses and attacks. STARS is NOT run on a PC server, but instead uses the super-scalable IBMi midrange server. Your data is remotely backed up and highly encrypted. We ARE your disaster management plan! And STARS has been granted the IBM Server Proven designation. IBM ServerProvenTM helps you easily identify a business application that has been validated on IBM Systems.
Problem: My System is Hard to Use.
STARS users repeatedly remark on “How easy your product is to use compared to ……” We can have you started up on STARS in a day’s time.
The system is intuitive, built by school owners for school owners.
Problem: I am Unprepared for Audits.
STARS was built from the ground up by former school owners and IBM ISV partners. Its built–in general ledger system has features that a non-school system will never have like sourcing all student transactions in the journal to specific students and funding.
Problem: I need to Improve my Bottom Line.
In today’s competitive school environment, lead management, student management and financial management are critical. STARS helps you manage these areas by giving you the data analysis that aids in early intervention to marketing, student progress and financial problems. In fact, we work with you to produce a procedure manual, which helps integrate STARS into the daily operations of your school, so you can “know your numbers.”
Problem: I Don’t have an IT Department.
You do not need support personnel on site to run STARS. In fact , if you have a web browser like Internet Explorer, you are ready for STARS. No software to upgrade or install! And – access us from anywhere in the world.
We can get into your computer and support you remotely.
Problem: Spending Hours on Census Reports
We have built–in solutions for your IPEDS, SSCRS, and other census reports.
Problem: We Can’t Afford a School Administrative Software System.
Since STARS is billed as a service, per active student, it is easy to budget the fixed–cost of STARS. Some schools charge a small fee to each student that pays for the system.
