ConnectEDU Launches easyTranscript

(Boston, MA) October 30, 2008- ConnectEDU, (www.connectedu.net), is pleased to announce the launch of easyTranscript, an enhanced transcript solution for colleges in the ConnectEDU National Network™. With easyTranscript, network colleges now receive e-transcripts from the 700 high schools using Prep HeadQuarters. ConnectEDU’s timely development of this feature has been in preparation for the current college admissions cycle. The 2,000 high schools in the ConnectEDU National Network now have the ability to send electronic transcripts to the 275 colleges in the network.

“Both high schools and colleges are dealing with unexpected budget cuts and are seeking long-term methods to streamline their operations,” said ConnectEDU President & CEO Craig Powell. “The exchange of electronic transcripts is one solution that has enormous results on the bottom line. With solutions like easyTranscript, ConnectEDU is committed to expanding network capabilities so all schools can benefit from the cost savings of streamlined admissions.”

Colleges currently in the network are installing easyTranscript with a simple download sent to them via email. Account managers are also available to assist.
