Maine school districts benefit from discounted pricing and web-based technology
The Educational Plant Maintenance Association of Maine (EPMA) and SchoolDude today announced an ongoing endorsement and alliance to provide affordable, web-based maintenance management solutions to school districts throughout Maine. EPMA is a Maine organization dedicated to improving the standards for educational plant maintenance and custodial workmanship. SchoolDude is the nation’s leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications designed specifically to help K-12 educational institutions.
The endorsement enables all school districts in Maine to purchase SchoolDude’s web-based applications at affordable, discounted rates. SchoolDude’s maintenance management solutions – MaintenanceDirect, PMDirect, and PlanningDirect – automate the work order process, schedule preventive maintenance, and simplify capital planning. These solutions are delivered via the web, making the technology easy to use and affordable for both small and large school districts.
“We as an organization believe that SchoolDude’s web-based model offers immediate success,” said Jim Reny, president of EPMA. “It takes the burden of maintaining another system off of the district, and the solutions can be quickly and easily implemented. We feel it is the right tool to advance and improve work procedures within Maine’s school districts.”
The EPMA’s decision to endorse SchoolDude was encouraged by key members in the organization who voiced their approval of SchoolDude’s applications and the many benefits of using web-based technology. SchoolDude’s suite of solutions provides measurable benefits to school administrators, including improved productivity, reduced energy consumption, relief to capital budgets and extended facility life.
“We at SchoolDude are proud of our partnership with the EPMA,” said Lee Prevost, SchoolDude President and Co-Founder “We feel that the EPMA’s values align with our mission to improve and maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for students across the nation. Working together we will be able to achieve this mission.”
