Aspen differentiates itself because it is scalable and flexible, while having rich functionality, actionable reporting and features that enable a big-picture view into student progress.
When engineers were designing Aspen they focused not just on the current education system and requirements, but also considered that the education system would change in the future. With this in mind, they included a number of tools that would provide boards with unprecedented flexibility to modify the application to meet their specific needs, including the ability to customize data, screens, reports, interfaces and more.
Based upon input from users, continual improvements are built into Aspen. The software is regularly updated and upgraded through two main releases per year, ensuring that Aspen remains a modern, supported solution. Aspen is a strategic asset to the Follett portfolio and will continually evolve to serve the needs of our educational partners, both now and well into the future.
Aspen is rich with reporting and chart data so teachers can see the full picture and administrators can pull the reports they really want. Hundreds of modifiable, system-defined reports can easily produce custom reports and charts. Insight into data helps educators make the best decisions for their students in real-time.
Aspen stands out because of its student-centric data design and its ability to support a very large number of students within a single database. Aspen supports true cross-enrolment of students without the need for any additional architecture or student records. It offers easy reporting across multiple school boards, instant transfer of students from one school or school board to another and easy alignment of educational goals across jurisdictions.
