As the computing requirements of school districts have grown, SYSTEMS 3000 applications have evolved to meet those needs, becoming the key to successfully managing the financial operations for school districts’ board offices. The three SYSTEMS 3000 application software packages –Accounting, Payroll and Personnel – comprise a fully integrated accounting, payroll, and human resource system designed specifically for New Jersey school districts. System integration permits data sharing among the three applications, eliminating any duplication of data entry. It also facilitates data sharing between our system and third-party applications that deal specifically with substitutes, attendance, bidding and benefits management. Furthermore, all SYSTEMS 3000 applications provide the capability to export all data into a variety of different file formats, most commonly xls, csv and txt, as well as the ability to generate reports in PDF format.
