The Digital Solutions team builds new web applications and adds functionality to existing web applications to turn our clients' visions into reality while implementing continuous improvement in reliability and performance. These applications have a wide range of users including but not limited to students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and many departments at the Admin building as well as other locations in the county. These applications incorporate complex business models designed for efficiency and consistency. Many of these applications automate processes for administrators, parents and students that were once manual or paper processes. This automation saves time and speeds information flow, which helps administrative and school personnel achieve their goals, objectives and mission more efficiently and effectively. Many of these applications utilize staff, student and parent data from Phoenix, improving accuracy and saving time for all.
