Mainstream Technologies wins contract from South Carolina Department of Education

To create enterprise solution for educator certification & licensing

(Little Rock, Ark.) — (December 14, 2017) —The South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) has awarded a multi-year contract to the software solutions unit of Mainstream Technologies in Little Rock, Arkansas. The goal is to create a system of record for educator certification and licensing that enhances efficiency and operational effectiveness across the enterprise by:

• automating the creation, tracking, retrieval, and reporting of educator certificates;
• recording, tracking and reporting teacher supplemental compensation; and
• creating a centralized repository for all certification and compensation information.

The Office of Educator Services, which is responsible for the recruitment, preparation, and certification of educators, will serve as the provider of the new system.

According to the Project Review Panel of the SCDE, “The procurement was awarded through a competitive sealed proposal process with extensive evaluation factors. Mainstream’s proposal was selected based on the quality of the information provided. We look forward to working with this vendor, as we launch the contract requirements.”

Jeff Byers, Mainstream’s VP of software solutions, adds: “We are excited about this opportunity to expand our work in education, particularly in the area of educator certification.”

Since 1996, Mainstream has evolved into one of the most established IT services companies in the Mid-South, serving clients from its headquarters in Little Rock and its second operations facility in Conway, as well as a sales office in Bentonville. Their staff of information technology professionals serves business and government customers across the nation with Managed IT Services, Custom Software Development Services, and Hosting.
