"I am delighted to offer my sincere endorsement for the exceptional implementation team and migration process of Skyward, particularly in our transition of HR and Finance to Qmlativ from PowerSchool. While our District only migrated these specific areas, the experience of Skyward Qmlativ has been nothing short of exceptional.

The transition from PowerSchool to Skyward Qmlativ for our HR and Financial programs was a critical endeavor. I am pleased to say that Skyward's implementation team handled it with utmost professionalism and efficiency. Their expertise in these areas was evident from the start, as they meticulously planned each phase of the transition to ensure minimal disruption to our operations.

What truly impressed us was the level of personalized attention we received throughout the process. Our Skyward Project Manager, Kassi Kobylarz, and the entire project team took the time to understand our unique needs and challenges, tailoring their approach to ensure a seamless transition. Their dedication to customer satisfaction was evident in their responsiveness to our inquiries and their willingness to go above and beyond to address any concerns that arose."

"At Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools we made the commitment to switch our previous financial software to Skyward Qmlativ in the summer of 2022. Skyward provided our district with a dedicated customer service transition team and an excellent training team for our conversion and at the point of our implementation. We have been live for almost a full school year and every aspect of the financial software has been an improvement! We are very pleased with the various modules in the Skyward software. A few examples are the accounts payable, purchasing, budgeting, reporting and payroll modules. The purchasing module allows our staff to complete e-commerce orders. This reduces entry time for all of our staff. Payroll processing time has been reduced as the system is more efficient and helped eliminate manual entry. Another positive is the overall ability to upload and download data from the financial/payroll system.

We are extremely pleased with this transition. Overall Skyward Qmlativ has created many efficiencies in the business office."

"At Lakeway Christian Schools, we're always on the lookout for ways to enhance our processes and stay ahead with the latest technology that helps us serve our community better. The transition from SMS 2.0 to Qmlativ was something we eagerly anticipated, and Skyward has been a pivotal partner in this journey.

Transitioning to Qmlativ felt like stepping into the future, yet it was comforting to see how Skyward retained the familiar flow and terminology. Having spent over a year with Qmlativ, I'm impressed by the improvements across all modules—it's clear that Skyward has poured decades of expertise into making their school ERP software even better.

We're genuinely pleased to recommend Skyward to others. Even though we're a private school system and their solutions are often seen in public school settings, we've found immense value in the robust controls and accountability Skyward provides—qualities that are sometimes missing in software designed specifically for private schools."
Tyler Vineyard

"Before Skyward, we were very frustrated with our business software and student information system. They operated in an outdated manner and were not easy to navigate or train new staff on. The support was also limited, and getting issues resolved was a struggle. Now, thanks to Skyward's business and student solutions, we have the opportunity to use a system that is working to support our needs and allows all users the ability to do tasks in a more timely manner, which frees up time for other work. We also can get the support and training that we need in a timely fashion to help us be successful. These types of changes are big for school systems, and Skyward's migration teams are by far the best in class when completing these changes. They are true experts in both of these arenas and always go the extra mile to make sure that your systems are doing what you need them to do so you and your staff can be successful. If you're looking for a reliable and trustworthy business solution and student information system, look no further than Skyward."

"Approximately 15 years ago, our school district decided on Skyward’s Student Management Suite, then added tools from Skyward’s School Business Suite. Later, when we consolidated with a neighboring district, the input from teachers, employees, parents, and students made it an easy decision to choose Skyward for everyone’s growing needs. With Skyward’s excellent customer support, we were able to combine the student and financial data from both districts without a hitch. Skyward’s attention to keeping up with stringent data security and mandated reporting measures throughout the years has been superb. You would be hard pressed to find anyone in our district who would consider anything less than Skyward for all of our data management needs."
