STEVENS POINT, Wis. (February 16, 2021) – Skyward, an administrative software provider committed to a better experience for every user, is proud to announce a partnership with Red Rover, an absence management solution. The partnership will eliminate the need for manual entry of employee leave and substitute work for both Skyward SMS 2.0 and Qmlativ business platform customers.

For Skyward customers, the partnership with Red Rover will allow one place for submitting time off requests and accompanying substitute requests. Upcoming integrations will provide real-time data transaction between the two systems. Skyward customers will be able to pull information directly from Red Rover with the click of a button, rather than having to import and export data.

“We are excited to partner with Red Rover to offer this functionality to our customers,” said Kevin Duda, vice president of product at Skyward. “Prior to the pandemic, finding a substitute was challenging, which has only been magnified in the last year. Thanks to this partnership, it will be easier for school districts to find substitutes who are qualified in the areas they are needed so they can keep kids learning.”

Red Rover has already been implemented in more than 1,700 schools across the nation. The simplified software design eliminates the learning curve for educators, saving time and money by filling absences faster due to automatic schedule optimization technology, while simultaneously attracting and retaining a stable pool of qualified subs.

“This partnership is focused on alignment with school districts across the country in support of student learning,” said Daniel O’Shaughnessey, founder and managing partner at Red Rover. “We’re excited to advance school district operations into the 21st century to compliment Skyward’s industry-leading K-12 school administrative software. Red Rover is delighted to partner with Skyward,” he added.

This partnership will benefit both SMS 2.0 and Qmlativ Skyward customers. For more information, visit www.skyward.com and www.redroverk12.com.
