Assessing Value on Investment for School Software Systems

Some impacts are more difficult to quantify but no less valuable. Increased productivity. Better security. Higher user satisfaction. Increased access to information when needed. Better communication and collaboration. Blackbaud partnered with Education Collaborators to develop an in depth guide designed to help school leaders consider some benefits and issues in considering an integrated and comprehensive data solution versus a disconnected or best-of-breed solution. The bottom-line ROI is important. But in a large purchase like a total school software system, the VOI is the differentiator.

This guide will discuss some of the VOI areas that should be considered in comparing options, such as:

  • Return on Investment

  • Missional Proof

  • Data

  • Productivity

  • Security
