Demystifying Remote Access
Howe, Grant
School Business Affairs, v75 n4 p8, 10-11 Apr 2009
With money tight, more and more districts are considering remote access as a way to reduce expenses and budget information technology costs more effectively. Remote access allows staff members to work with a hosted software application from any school campus without being tied to a specific physical location. Each school can access critical business applications directly from the hosted server, ultimately leading to increased productivity, more accurate data, and better collaboration across campuses. For example, remote access to a financial management system allows school administrators to enter budgets directly into the district system or enter invoices or payments into the district's centralized accounting system, reducing time and the chance of transmission errors and freeing district staff from daily data entry tasks. By combining infrastructure costs, schools can save a significant amount of overhead without sacrificing any resources for students. This article discusses what remote access is and the best way for a district to implement it.
