Posted by Nicola Dickinson on May 16, 2016 10:23:15 AM


You want to provide the best learning environment you can for your students. There’s no question there. We believe to do this your administrative staff need to be able to remove the manual barriers to getting their work done and that starts with their ERP solution. Our latest release, Altus Dynamics ERP 2016 is better than ever for K12 organizations. Together with Microsoft, Altus has made major investments in our ERP platform giving school boards advancements in procurement processes, funder reporting, fixed assets, HR, and Payroll. Here are the top features we deliver to school boards:

Requisitioning Process

Staff log into the online School WebApps, select their own vendors or pick from a pre-approved list, and have all of the items they wish to purchase appear on a single requisition (including multiple vendors and entries). We increase engagement and transparency by providing budget status and visibility into the approval process, making sure that all purchases are within budget and approved in a timely manner.

GL Inquiry & Budget Management

Our online dashboard supports easy inquiries and better analysis while drill-downs show actuals, commitments, requests, and payments all in a single view so you can maintain complete transparency within your schoolboard.


Advanced Reporting

We get how challenging funder, board, and trustee reporting can be. Your team needs to trust the information that comes out of your ERP system while still having access to reporting tools that are actually easy to use (no IT support required). With layers of reporting tools available, your team is well-armed to ‘leave no report behind.’


Advanced Analytics

Today more than ever, big data is driving decision support. ERP systems need to be one step ahead of where technology is going, and as a Microsoft solution you gain that advantage. From PowerBI to Data Analytics, K12 has the keys to more affordable analytics tools than ever before, and Altus is right there beside you ensuring that our ERP technology gives you the decision support you need.


Our K12 solution is 100% web based, meaning you can access it from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. Its responsive design works across a wide range of devices and is mobile-device ready - providing an optimal viewing and interaction experience with easy reading and navigation that does not require much resizing, panning or scrolling.
