“As an early-adopter of Software-as-a-Service in higher education, I have seen the benefits first-hand,” said Hill. “TopSchool’s vision to help institutions drive decisions and reduce costs by supporting less hardware, no upgrade fees, and quicker implementations can create a critical competitive advantage. I believe that this solution combined with TopSchool’s proven management team provides a great opportunity to make a very positive impact on higher education.”
