Greenville County Schools Signs Multi-Suite Contract With Lawson Software

South Carolina school district will use Lawson system to help improve

efficiency and reporting capabilities

ST. PAUL, Minn.–(EMWNews)–Lawson Software (Nasdaq: LWSN) today announced the School District of

Greenville, South Carolina signed a multi-suite contract that includes

the Lawson S3 Enterprise Financial Management and Human Capital

Management suites as well as Lawson Business Intelligence. These

applications will help the school district more easily pull and analyze

financial information and decrease paper-based processes while creating

a centralized administrative system and structure for future technology

growth. The contract was signed during Lawsons

fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, which ended May 31, 2008.

Greenville County Schools is the largest public school system in South

Carolina and the 58th largest public school system in the nation. The

district educates more than 67,000 students in grades K-12 at more than

100 facilities in the county. Recently, eight Greenville County high

schools were named among Newsweeks Best High

Schools for 2008.

The Lawson applications will replace the school districts

current financial, procurement, human resources, budgeting and payroll

systems. Lawson Professional Services will work with district employees

to provide implementation services for the project rollout.

Specifically, the new system will help the district automate formerly

manual processes, such as those associated with budgeting, purchasing

and personnel transactions. For example, the Lawson Enterprise Financial

suite can help the district create accounting reports on a

project-by-project basis, helping administrators sort through data and

save time. This automation can help the district eliminate many of its

paper-based processes used in invoice tracking and payroll, therefore

helping to reduce cost.

Moreover, Lawson Business Intelligence will allow the organization to

drill deeper into financial and human resource data for further analysis

without the need to run multiple reports on multiple systems. The

district will also be able to create role-based dashboards for key

departments from HR to accounting, which

gives employees relevant information at their fingertips to help them

make better informed decisions.

School districts around the country are faced

with shrinking budgets and increasing demands from the communities they

serve, said Alex Kaplan, services director,

Public Sector, Lawson. Lawson helps school

systems optimize and account for scarce resources efficiently and at a

lower total cost of ownership.

Lawson serves more than 140 public sector customers, including three of

the top seven digital state governments and four of the 25 largest

school districts in the United States. State governments, cities,

counties, school districts, publicly owned utilities/authorities and

special districts rely on Lawson solutions to help meet the needs of key

stakeholders constituents, employees,

students, vendors and communities while

helping to maximize limited budgets.
