    Skyward products have made my life easier. We used to put in hours of overtime getting ready for the start of the school year. But using Skywards employment management, salary negotiations and payroll, in conjunction with each other has made overtime a thing of the past.

    Susan Stoffel (FINANCIALS, SLINGER SCHOOL DISTRICT, WI - Enrollment 2,900)


    I feel the entry process of adding new employees has become easier and friendlier with Skyward. We enter a lot of new employees at the beginning of the year and the process has expedited the entry process along with importing of info from one screen to another. Accessing this info and making changes has been a plus too!

    Brenda Glessner (USER, GEARY CO UNIF SCH DIST 475, KS - Enrollment 6,500)


    We have been using Skyward Financial since July 2008. Since the implementation we have been gradually bringing on more inter-connected modules (HR to Payroll Imports, to third party sub caller program and on-line requisitions originating at the staff member level, check reconciliations) and have found that this has given us more efficiencies and effectiveness in processing the transactions. It has also helped in developing the segregation of duties required for internal controls.

    Phyllis Hanna (Director of Finance and Operations, GLEN ELLYN SCHOOL DIST 41, IL - Enrollment 3,600)


    The informational and reporting capabilities of Skyward are awesome. In addition, the integration between payroll, sub tracking, paperless time off and Aesop sub calling has reduced the workload and increased the efficiency and accuracy of our payroll operations

    Louise Fischer (DIRECTOR OF FINANCE, MERRILL AREA PUBLIC SCH DIST, WI - Enrollment 2,986)


    Using Skyward’s electronic payroll has really saved us money, not only the actual dollars but in time. We have fewer calls or emails since employees can access their info.
