Our History of Innovation
Edupoint’s founder, Bob Weathers, has dedicated his life to K-12 student information management. Beginning as an IT Director for a large California school district, Bob created his first administrative software product for schools in the 1970s, and went on to develop several commercially successful K-12 software systems over the decades. He was an original developer of SASI and SASIxp, one of the all-time best-selling SIS solutions in the world. Bob, together with Tom McGrew, Edupoint’s Chief Technology Officer, and Rob Wilson, Edupoint’s President and Chief Innovation Officer, provide active thought leadership and steer the company as it follows in Bob’s legacy of success.
Edupoint’s mission, like the company itself, has evolved over the years. No longer are we simply focused on the management and reporting of student data, though that remains a core competency and focus. We recognize that today’s technologically advanced solutions must do much more than simply manage data. The true power of data comes when it is shared, real-time, with those that can use the information to inform decisions. And as such, our mission has expanded, to focus on harnessing both student and instructional data to inform teaching, increase collaboration and positively impact student success.
