A $500 million public school district with 5,000 employees, 30,000+ students and more than 70 buildings.
It is typical for schools within a single district to choose the same supplemental materials. Since traditional licensing options are volume-based, those schools needing fewer licenses were paying more per license even though they were within the same district as a larger school using the same software.
By evaluating the license count, spend and need, we negotiated district-wide contract pricing. This approach provided more licenses for fewer dollars. And, it gave teachers a choice for the supplementary curriculum.
The district saved 31% on licensing fees and increased the number of licenses available for teachers. This gave teachers CHOICES and the district CONTROL over pricing and contract value.
