August 22, 2012 – Hayes Software Systems (HSS), experts in K-12 instructional resource management, has partnered with the Texas Computer Cooperative (TCC) as their instructional material management provider for TCC’s Texas Education Agency (TEA) state-sponsored student information system, TxEIS. HSS’ TIPWeb-IM software will provide TxEIS customers with an integrated solution to ensure communication, accountability, and availability of student textbooks and teacher resources.
The partnership comes at a time when Texas school districts are being asked to be diligent with their state provided Instructional Materials Allotment funding. The integrated and specially priced solution will allow districts to better track and manage materials purchased with those funds.
The TCC, which consists of each of the state’s 20 Educational Service Centers, provides the TxEIS solution to over 800 Texas LEA’s (districts and charter schools). HSS provides asset management software to nearly 300 LEA’s across the state. The two web-based systems will now be integrated to deliver a comprehensive solution allowing school administrators real-time information for a complete picture of what is owned by the district, where inventory resides, and even who it is assigned to.
“The TCC is pleased to form this partnership with Hayes Software Systems. We feel the HSS product will enhance the TCC software offerings by including a best of breed product at a cost effective price. This partnership will also allow for a more seamless integration between TxEIS and the TIPWeb product,” said John McCauley, Associate Director of IT at Region 20.
“We are very excited about our partnership with the TCC and Educational Service Centers in Texas. TEA selected TxEIS as a recommended solution for a reason. It’s because it is an exceptional product backed by outstanding customer service,” said Michael Hayes, Former President and CEO of Hayes Software Systems. “Our partnership will make it easier and more cost effective for school systems of all sizes to utilize our software solution. This is a winning scenario for HSS, TCC, and hundreds of school systems across Texas.”
