The Online Purchasing System (OPS) gives charter school administrators unprecedented control over ordering student materials, classes, individual tutoring, activities and events. Independent study teachers are able to place requests for each of their students through a web-based, password-protected user interface. Administrators are able to review and authorize orders before they are placed with vendors. OPS generates purchase orders to be printed out or emailed that contain order details and custom notes specific to the order.
Once teachers or parents mark items received, they are logged into inventory. The student inventory feature tracks non-consumable items such as text books and equipment in order to facilitate efficient, end-of-year returns. Administrators and teachers are able to create customized report templates that allow real-time data to be seamlessly exported to spreadsheet programs for analysis and record keeping. Administrators and teachers can effectively monitor Educational Units (EUs). EUs are subtracted when an order is placed, and can be manually adjusted any time an administrator has knowledge of specific need and available funds.
– your teachers, clerks and office staff manage their time much more effectively.

: OPS LR goes way beyond just easy check in and check out of books. Using scanners and UPC code technology, it has a sophisticated system of tracking the total quantity, quantity in the library and the quantity available of each item. Requests made for items that are available in the library get reserved and become ready for check-out. All in-stock library items reserved can be sorted and bulked up by each teacher/student and can either effect student budgets or not. Requests for items that are not available, or not yet in your library catalog, can be bulked into single orders and sent to your preferred vendors. Bulked orders received from vendors can be quickly added to your school’s inventory then sorted/bulked up by teacher/student streamlining the process of cataloging inventory and delivering the right materials to the right individuals.
: Items that don’t currently exist in your library catalog can be easily requested. Upon approval, these new items will be automatically bulk ordered and added to your catalog.
