identiMetrics and PowerSchool Join Forces to Bring Biometric Finger Scanning to PowerSchool Student Information System
identiMetrics, the leader in biometric finger scanning identification solutions for schools, and PowerSchool, the #1 leading provider of K-12 Student Information Systems (SIS), are joining forces through an independent software vendor (ISV) partnership agreement to bring biometric finger scanning solutions to PowerSchool.
PowerSchool, the world’s most widely used web-based student information system, supports 40 million users and over 15 million students in more than 70 countries. PowerSchool enables today’s educators to make timely decisions that impact student performance while creating a collaborative environment for parents, teachers and students to work together in preparing 21st century learners for the future.
Raymond J. Fry, President and Chief Executive Officer of identiMetrics said, “We are excited with the partnership between identiMetrics and PowerSchool. As a former school principal, I understand the administrative challenges that schools face every day, especially when it comes to accurately identifying students. PowerSchool and identiMetrics create a winning combination allowing schools and school districts to use technology to work smarter, rather than harder.”
The identiMetrics Finger Scanning ID™ System uses a single common database for student identification everywhere in the school where students need to be accurately identified, including in the attendance office, attendance in the classroom, school entrance, cafeteria, nurse’s office, library, bus, for dances and athletic events. The ID system was specifically designed by educators to meet the unique needs of schools. identiMetrics helps schools and school districts use time-trusted finger scanning technology to streamline their attendance processes resulting in increased efficiencies and improved operations.
“By partnering with the leader in biometric finger scanning identification solutions, PowerSchool is once again continuing to offer clear advantages over other student information systems in the market. This partnership adds a unique, valuable service to the PowerSchool solution and further expands our ISV Partner program with close to 150 partners. As the hub of schools’ and districts’ education ecosystem, PowerSchool works hard to align ourselves with industry-leading applications that seamlessly integrate with, and enhance, our SIS for the end user for the best choice and functionality in education technology products,” said Oliver Wreford, vice president of product and marketing at PowerSchool.
