What they've said about us
The best run districts use Focus to manage their data.
“The FOCUS team has a razor-sharp sense of organization and a reverent respect for deadlines and time-sensitive tasks. Their ongoing guidance and leadership speak volumes about their character as an organization and has made our strategic transition into the full-service automation of our programming a seamless and successful endeavor.”Victor FerranteExecutive Director Office of Community Education and Before/After School Programs, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
“Focus allows us to blend system, state reporting, and local fields on the same screen. Other systems we reviewed would have forced us to separate these onto separate screens. This capability allows us to customize the screens to make data entry much easier on the users. Data quality continues to improve as a result of their Edit Rules & Workflow which gives us the ability for us to add basic edits and cross-field validations without programming. We also have the ability to create more powerful edits with simple queries.”Doug DillardSystems Analyst, Escambia County School District
“The system is flexible enough for our team to “own” it by configuring it and customizing it to meet our local needs without affecting core code. We have been able to do more than merely add filters and reports. We have created additional fields, tables, UI elements, alerts, jobs, and other solutions without vendor involvement and additional cost.”Manuel CastanedaExecutive Director, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
“Over the past few years of using Focus it has been a pleasure to watch the company and its products grow. As more and more schools and school districts have adopted Focus, the User community has really begun to flourish. Focus has capitalized on that by working closely with and leveraging feedback from its clients to continue to refine its products, introduce new, user-requested modules, and develop exciting new features.”Chris BowersDirector, Workforce Education Information Management, Broward County Schools
“The customer service provided by FOCUS is unparalleled by any other digital or EdTech company we've worked with in the past! Not only is the product already intuitive, but, FOCUS listens to its customers' feedback and quickly turns around change requests to assist users with the customization and configuring of the platform to the needs of individual schools! Truly, FOCUS centers schools, teachers, and staff to help provide processes, updates, and configurations that streamline procedures to give users more time to focus on instructional priorities.”Mohamed HassanDirector, Data Analytics & Digital Programs, American Paradigm Schools
“When I came on board I thought it would take at least a year to be producing KPIs, but with the background work of the Focus Analytics package, our development team is releasing new stories and KPIs every two weeks.”Jim ScantlinDirector of Management Information Systems, from Bay District Schools
