Northeastern Regional Information Center (NERIC) announced that it has contracted with Edupoint Educational Systems to offer the company’s Synergy Education Platform to NERIC member schools.

NERIC is a cooperative educational organization that serves 135 school districts and seven Capital Region Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) across 17 counties in New York’s Capital Region and northward. NERIC member schools serve more than 80,000 students.

In a press release, NERIC said the organization’s leadership began considering adding an additional product to its menu of student data management systems “after observing the trend toward consolidation in the education technology marketplace.” The organization’s evaluation team used a multi-step request for proposal process to identify potential vendors and solutions. Ultimately, the team decided to partner with Edupoint to add Synergy to NERIC’s student information system offerings.

“Our team and our customers were impressed with Synergy,” said Jeffrey Luks, manager of student services at NERIC. “Our customers especially liked the system’s integration potential and ease of use for teachers.”

Edupoint Education Systems said its Synergy Education Platform is a comprehensive student information and learning management ecosystem that provides the real-time performance data that educators can use to improve learning outcomes for students while also helping districts streamline processes, improve communication, and increase collaboration.

The platform can help school districts manage student information, online registration, student learning, assessment, special education, and analytics.

“NERIC customers selecting Synergy as their student information system will get comprehensive functionality, the flexibility to adapt and evolve the system as their needs change, and solid integration with a diverse portfolio of third-party applications,” said Rob Wilson, president and chief innovation officer at Edupoint.
