Fireside Chat with Principal Greg Betti of Stamford Elementary School

Last week, we began interviewing our current customers via video chat on Google Hangout. This is the first of what we hope will be a great many customer stories – “fireside chats” is what we’re calling them – that we share with you!

Greg Betti is the Principal of Stamford Elementary School, which has an enrollment of approximately 65 students grades K-8.  Stamford has been using QuickSchools since September 2013.

Last summer, Principal Betti’s administration was looking to upgrade Stamford’s Gradebook and recordkeeping processes to “join the technology age.”  But they were facing exorbitant costs and could not find something that their teachers could learn quickly.

“It was hard.  Our teachers were nervous and we needed something in place before the school year started.  We decided to try QuickSchools because it seemed like it would be easier to set up and then we could go from there.”

Principal Betti highlighted the QuickSchools help chat box and noted that he and his teachers were able to get their questions answered quickly and were up and running with the program in two weeks.  He told us that QuickSchools was easy to roll out and that he has consistently been able to get high quality service.  Hear from Principal Betti directly about his experience with QuickSchools:

Part of the selling point for Principal Betti was the QuickSchools Report Card feature.  The Stamford school board wanted differentiated report cards for the upper grades versus the lower grades.  QuickSchools worked directly with the school to design a customized report card for the upper grades.   Hear from Principal Betti directly about report card customization with QuickSchools:

Principal Betti also told us about increased levels of satisfaction among teachers and parents with QuickSchools; he noted that both constituencies have achieved high levels of comfort with the product in a short period of time.  Hear from Principal Betti directly about parent involvement since the implementation of QuickSchools:

Finally, Betti stated that he expects to continue growing and partnering with QuickSchools:

“We are slowly expanding our use of QuickSchools without being forced to; we’re just using it more and more.  Our comfort level is not going down; it’s going up.  We expand because we’re comfortable and that’s a win-win situation for our small school.”

Special thanks to Principal Betti and other participants in our fireside chat program.  We look forward to sharing another story with you soon!
