SchoolDude Features 47 Campus Champions Using Cloud Services to Achieve Operational Excellence

SchoolDude, a leading cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of facility management solutions, has featured 47 “best of the best” Campus Champions to recognize individuals and schools leading the nation in performance compared to their peers.

SchoolDude analyzed more than 75 terabytes of data from more than 6,000 educational institutions to measure performance and identify the top performers. The selection as a Campus Champion is a testament to saving significant money and time. Campus Champions demonstrate how schools across the nation save hundreds of millions of dollars every year by adopting cloud services to manage facilities and streamline operations.

“Excellence is a journey, not a destination,” said SchoolDude President Lee Prevost. “The ongoing excellence achieved by our Campus Champions highlight their best practices. In an increasingly challenging environment, Campus Champions have embraced the power of technology to improve school operations. A dollar saved in operations is a dollar more for education. As Campus Champions, they are helping their schools and their peers across the nation best apply education resources for everyone.”

SchoolDude’s cloud-based services streamline maintenance and information technology help desks for a school’s entire operations including facility management, community use of schools, IT helpdesk and asset management, and management of energy consumption and transportation resources. Across the nation, a work order, event or IT issue is submitted to SchoolDude every second of every day. Increased productivity is achieved through web-based tools that faculty, staff and students can easily use.

Campus Champions rank within the top 20 percent among their peers in the nation in the categories of Facility Use, Energy Management, Inventory Management, Preventive Maintenance and Information Technology Management. Champions participate in the SchoolDude Online Community answering questions posted by peers, as well as joining in discussions and offering expert advice. They also help shape the future of SchoolDude services by assisting in new product testing, enhancement evaluation, and overall concept and idea discussions.

Eileen Mode, office supervisor of Kennedale Independent School District in Kennedale, Texas is a Campus Champion for excellence in maintenance and operations. “We have been able to eliminate paper and now have a quick turn around on our work,” Mode said. “Establishing accountability has been a major improvement compare to the ‘olden days’ of triplicates and faxes that often got lost in the shuffle.”

Derek Senn, technology division facilitator for Homer Community Consolidated School District in Homer Glen, Illinois, is a Campus Champion for excellence in preventive maintenance. “We have used SchoolDude to streamline our maintenance, custodial, technology and preventative maintenance work. It has created an instantaneous line of communication between teachers and support staff within our district,” Senn said. “The time between work order submission and job completion has been significantly reduced. The data metrics that we have been able to acquire from the system has been incredibly valuable. We learn things about our district everyday with the data that we are able to derive from leveraging SchoolDude.”

Peter Lindner, director of maintenance for Wheaton Christian Grammar School in Winfield, Illinois, is a Campus Champion for excellence in preventive maintenance. “With SchoolDude’s web native system tracking is a breeze to use, history is easy to retrieve, and reports are quick and informative,” he said. “Credibility and confidence has been gained from both the school board and administration because I have been able to demonstrate reliable data history to support recommendations for large equipment purchases or replacements.”

Denise Wooldridge, facilities usage manager for Rockwood School District in Eureka, Missouri, is a campus champion for excellence in facility use. “SchoolDude provides a one-stop shop for facility scheduling. We have seen tremendous improvements in the accuracy of our data related to facility usage in the district. The detailed reports generated by the system are amazing. They have proven extremely valuable as we make decisions that allow us to continue our commitment to making facilities available for use by the community while ensuring we are doing so in a fiscally responsible way.”
