(Atlanta, GA) November 10, 2015 - Student-life online community PlanetHS is proud to announce that it has earned a single sign-on badge from leading student information system PowerSchool.

The single sign-on (SSO) feature, which is available to PlanetHS users now, allows students and parents to use one set of log-in credentials for a number of sites, saving them time and reducing their risk of getting locked out of their accounts.

“We are excited to evolve our ISV program to include a Partner Badging System that provides customers with essential information about the vendors in our ecosystem that have invested in integrating their products with PowerSchool. With ISV badges, customers have improved visibility to our partners to create integration between the applications and PowerSchool for the benefit of end users,” said Oliver Wreford, vice president of product and marketing at PowerSchool.

As it joins the elite group of companies that have earned badges from PowerSchool, PlanetHS serves more than 400,000 members from more than 900 schools. With 72% growth in number of users, and an open rate by parents of 70%, PlanetHS is fast becoming the preferred digital communications hub for the student-life ecosystem.

“Single sign-on makes PlanetHS simpler to use, and makes it easier for a user to go between multiple websites efficiently,” said Lupita Knittel, the CEO of PlanetHS. “Our integration with PowerSchool allows us to take our unique accumulation of data about what students do outside the classroom and integrate it with what students do in the classroom. Our ultimate goal is to quantify the connection between extracurriculars and academics and find the optimum number of activities outside the classroom that will lead to success in the classroom.”
