Shaler Area School District
EDUCATION CASE STUDY
- Department: Technology
- Department: Special Education
- Location: Glenshaw, PA
- Interviewee: Mitchel Stivason, Coordinator of Technology
The last month of every school year is hectic for Shaler School district’s IT department. There are many IEP documents that teachers need updates on to ensure completion from parents. Plus, modern times require legal options for digital agreements.
Shaler’s IT department was losing too much time tracking paperwork via traditional mail and fax. So, they evaluated DocuSign as a potential eSignature cloud solution. Unfortunately, the department found out that DocuSign bases its pricing model on how many documents need signing, which did not fit their need.
After the school district discovered BlueInk, they scheduled a demo to see if they’d found the paperless solution and pricing model that would work for them.
BlueInk’s customer success team provided expert, friendly training so that the IT department would know how to implement their new eSignature suite without delay.
In addition, BlueInk set up their accounts on the spot, and they wouldn’t charge Shaler per document. Instead, they gave the district one flat, economical rate for all their needs.
Shaler’s IT department can now see who’s received their paperwork and eSigned in real-time. Using their old IEP process, they’d have to wait an entire week to get documents completed.
Now, they can get everything done in a day. In addition, the straightforward BlueInk dashboard allows teachers to focus on teaching rather than administrative mix-ups.
Shaler School district is now future-ready, cutting time and frustration out of the eSignature equation.
