Skyward Partners With ESC Region 12 Financial Consulting in Texas for Supplemental Accounting Support

All Texas Districts Can Receive General and Skyward-Focused Accounting Assistance

STEVENS POINT, WI--(Marketwired - February 20, 2014) - To provide customers with an additional resource for success, Skyward, Inc., an industry leading K-12 school administrative software provider, has partnered with the financial consulting group Educational Service Center (ESC) Region 12 in Texas. The additional component to their existing partnership offers districts assistance with accounting and finance services.

For a nominal fee, ESC Region 12 Financial Consulting will aid districts with their finance challenges, with services such as audit prep, cash flow, financial benchmarking and general accounting assistance. Additionally, all of Skyward's Texas finance customers can access this supplemental financial service, regardless of where they are located.

"We strive to ensure our customers have as much support as possible to run efficiently," said Andy Lind, vice president of customer services for Skyward. "Expanding our partnership with ESC Region 12 backs this vision by providing educators and school personnel with local access to valuable financial support."

While this partnership supports districts with their accounting and finance needs, it should not be viewed as the primary source for questions related to Skyward's finance software. Skyward will still provide helpdesk support for its business software customers as has always been done.

"ESC Region 12 is devoted to supporting districts' efforts to increase financial efficiency," said David McKamie, director, information services for ESC Region 12. "Extending our partnership with Skyward bolsters that initiative, giving Texas Skyward districts a robust opportunity to get the financial help they need."
