Last December, SchoolDude and ArbiterSports announced a premier strategic alliance to integrate the SchoolDude facilities (FSDirect) and transportation (TripDirect) solutions with the ArbiterSports athletic event management (ArbiterGame) solution into one seamless user experience. The integrated solution will be previewed at SchoolDude’s annual user conference, SchoolDude University, being held April 20-24, 2013 in Myrtle Beach, S.C. General release of the integrated solution is scheduled for June 30, 2013.
Sixty percent of schools experience wasted time due to double data entry and double booking of facility and transportation resources for school events. With staff and budgets continuing to shrink, schools can’t afford these communication and coordination problems when scheduling athletic events, school programs, community activities and field trips.
SchoolDude is the market leader in education enterprise asset management, delivering Software-as-a-solution applications to help both small and large institutions better manage their facilities, IT and business operations. ArbiterSports is the established leader in athletic event management to include scheduling, assigning officials, paying event workers, informing athletes and is part of the NCAA Spectrum.
With the integration, Athletic Departments will be able to use ArbiterGame to schedule an athletic event and then through SchoolDude, schedule facilities, transportation and other service requests, without having to worry about how the two systems communicate with each other. The integration will allow all schools to:
Eliminate double data entry and double booking
Easily share event calendars, resources and assets across departments
Improve communication and event coordination across the district
Efficiently manage facility use requests and event schedules online with SchoolDude’s FSDirect
Easily schedule vehicles and driver assignments online with SchoolDude’s TripDirect
“We’re excited about working with SchoolDude on integrating our offerings to help school administrators overcome the challenges of today’s ever-changing scheduling requirements,” said Jeff Triplette, President & CEO of ArbiterSports.
“Our clients rely on us to maximize their SchoolDude investment by selecting the best-in-class solutions for integrations that simplify their hectic professional lives,” said Lee Prevost, President & Co-Founder of SchoolDude. “ArbiterSports, part of the NCAA Spectrum, meets this high threshold. By tying our two systems together, we are able to eliminate double data entry, making the overall process easier and more efficient.”
