Client Center Stage: Fresno Unified School District

When Our Clients Succeed, We Succeed

Every so often, we like to part the curtains and put our clients center stage. We work with several different clients, all with unique challenges … who need unique custom software solutions. Here, we’d like to showcase the success of our client, Fresno Unified School District.

The 4th Largest School District in California

Fresno Unified School District (FUSD) is a large school district of about 74,000 students and approximately 10,000 employees in Fresno, California. Today, it’s one of the top five largest school districts in California.

The Project

As a large educational institution, FUSD wanted to simplify and modernize their human resources processes during the standard school year and summer school sessions. Specifically, they wanted to be able to automate records, rank candidates and closely document the entire human resources life cycle. They also requested a digital calendar application to view and schedule substitute instructors.

The Solution

Beginning with a collaborative Shift3 assessment, our team developed an enterprise-wide, fully configurable human resources portal to streamline workflows, document/task management and hiring processes for each admin and manager. This custom application was built from the ground up over a six-month period and was developed with a .NET backend and Knockout.js front end.

Overall Impact on FUSD

Today, FUSD’s HR life cycle is fully automated. All resumes, letters of support and other hiring materials for each candidate are loaded into a database and easily accessible by each manager with a click of a few buttons. Interviews can be logged and tracked, staff data is secure and private and general workflows and processes have been simplified. Additionally, administrative staff can easily schedule substitute teachers via the custom calendar application.

200+ managers and admins are now able to leverage these easy-to-use platforms, saving hundreds of hours per manager and significantly reducing human error.
