LINQ, the premier K-12 technology solutions company in the U.S, announced that Ashe County Schools in Ashe County, NC, and Provo City School District in Provo City, UT are modernizing their school districts with successful implementations of a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.

LINQ ERP allows districts to manage all district operations from one central cloud system. Both districts credit the successful integration to the easy-to-use and learn solution and LINQ’s customer support teams.

Ashe County Schools

“LINQ’s ERP system was straightforward and successful for our district to implement,” said Amanda Coldiron, Financial Officer of Ashe County Schools. “They know just what North Carolina schools need to succeed. It streamlines our process so we can focus on our biggest priority, our students.”

With the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) in North Carolina implementing a School Business System Modernization (SBSM) initiative to modernize all school districts, Ashe County embraced the opportunity to implement an easy-to-use, comprehensive system to support its district of approximately 3,000 enrolled students.

LINQ ERP North Carolina offers all the requirements for Ashe County Schools. It features:

  • Integrated accounting, payroll, and human resource management solving communication issues between HR and Finance and eliminating duplicate data entries.
  • Built-in compliance with North Carolina regulations.
  • Friendly support staff with both industry and North Carolina-specific knowledge.
  • The goal is to migrate all districts to cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions by 2024.

Provo City School District

Provo City School District is a single-city district with approximately 13,000 enrolled students and was an existing client of Alio, a K-12 solutions company that was acquired by LINQ in 2021. Happy with the service they were receiving, Provo agreed to transition to what is now LINQ ERP.

“Transitioning to a new system can be challenging for any school district, however, LINQ ensured a smooth implementation,” said Devyn Dayley, Director of Accounting of Provo City School District. “What sets LINQ ERP apart from other providers is the human aspect, the team’s responsiveness, and deep industry knowledge. In addition, the system’s flexibility allows our team to make any changes and fix things ‘without an act of Congress,’ which means greater efficiency with updates and customization.”
