Nestled in the northwest corner of Georgia, Rome City Schools serves nearly 6,100 students across nine different schools with more than 450 staff throughout the district. Louis Byars, Rome City Schools Chief Operations Officer, shared how his previous hands-on experience with Softdocs solutions made the decision to implement electronic document management a simple one.
“Softdocs has the enhanced integration capabilities we need and at a reasonable cost,” commented Byars. “I’m most excited that we will be able to house everything in one place. I no longer have to go to other applications to find documents, whether its onboarding forms, purchasing requisitions or payroll documents.”
During his tenure with the Georgia Department of Education, Byars played an integral role in the management and support of the PC Genesis accounting software in Georgia school districts.
“Softdocs was one of the only companies to offer the integration needs with PC Genesis that we desired. We are able to use what we have and enhance it with the Softdocs applications,” said Byars.
Rome City Schools is the 71st district in Georgia to join the Softdocs customer family, confirming Softdocs as a leader in providing innovative and cost effective solutions for the K-12 marketplace.
“Each time we’re able to reduce the use of physical paper and streamline processes for a district it’s inspiring,” noted Brian Hinson, the Softdocs account manager for Rome City Schools. “We’re all trying to figure out how to do more with less time and the addition of our solutions should be a huge step in that direction for Rome City Schools.”
