Tornillo Independent School District, 35 miles southeast of El Paso, Texas recently signed a contract with Prologic Technology Systems, Inc. to upgrade their four district campuses to TEAMS™ cloud-based Finance and Payroll/Human Resource (HR) technology.

TEAMS cloud-based finance and student solutions allow districts the convenience of a single vendor covering everything from infrastructure and software support to daily back-ups and software updates.

"Our district is continuously looking to replace stand-alone systems with cloud solutions because of all the advantages it offers ranging from any-time, anywhere accessibility to removing the burden of in-house system maintenance," said Carlos Garcia, Information Technology Manager at Tornillo ISD. "Upgrading to TEAMS will give us real-time global access and more automated workflows that could potentially eliminate many of the paper-trail processes and redundant data entries that are currently taking place, particularly in HR and accounts payable."
