Escape Online Training Kicks Off at Hayward USD!

The first of many trainings has begun with Hayward USD! Kathy Carlson, Escape Project Manager, along with the Alameda COE FSS team spent two days with the Hayward USD Core Team and staff from various departments. We provided an overview of HR/Payroll and Finance modules and the functionality Escape Online offers. Both trainings were well attended by district staff.

We kicked off training on Day 1 with an HR/Payroll overview. The team received an overview of Position Control, Employee Management, Benefits and Leaves in Escape Online. We took a deep dive into Assignment and Payroll setup to prepare the team for system setup required in order to start data migration. Attendees were given “homework” to start putting together the important HR and Payroll setup data that will help define their new Escape Online system!

The next day, the Finance Overview was held. We were welcomed by the Core Team and staff from the various Finance departments. The team spent the day learning about setup for Chart of Accounts, Departments, Purchasing and Asset Management in Escape Online. We also showed the team how Stores and Work Orders can be managed in the system.

There were many smiles and lots of exclamations about the new features Hayward USD will be able to use in Escape Online when they go live in July 2020!
