Throughout the pandemic, Malvern-based Frontline Education has been busier than ever, transitioning all of its employees to working from home while simultaneously pushing out software updates to meet the COVID-19 needs at the tens of thousands of schools nationwide that use its software, writes Michelle Caffrey for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The company’s applications allows school districts to manage human resources, recruiting and hiring, payroll, absence and time tracking, student information systems, and special education requirements, among many other things.
“While administrators were really thinking about how do they have a continuation of learning, they also needed to figure out continuity of operations,” said Frontline CEO Mark Gruzin. “It was a massive lift for them to do that.”
Frontline has updated many of its applications with COVID-19-related additions. For example, the company has adapted one of its applications used by school nurses to include COVID-19 reporting functionality and messaging. The application was offered free to its entire install base.
Frontline also adjusted its time and access management application to allow staff to check in virtually.
