Another of our valued Escape Classic customers has decided to make the move to Online 5. Antelope Valley Union High School District has been using our Classic finance module for years. Starting last month they began the transition to their new system. The first planning session was only a couple of weeks ago and we’ve already completed the first Classic conversion. We refer to this as the first ’interim conversion’ and it allows users to begin training with their own data. I will continue to convert the Classic data and refresh the Online 5 system about once a month until September when they are scheduled to go live.
I’d like to thank Dan Stewart at Antelope for his quick response and handling of the infrastructure setup at the district. With the first conversion behind us the staff at Antelope can now begin working with our Escape project manager Gayle Lucas. She will lead the business staff at Antelope Valley during their training on the new system, parallel process comparisons with Escape Classic and the final acceptance testing of the new software. I’ll be working closely with Gayle and will customize the conversion for the specific needs of this customer. Together with Gayle and the folks at Antelope Valley I look forward to a successful deployment!
