What’s New in Maestro SIS Release 3.9

BocaVox has recently awarded our clients with yet another round of FREE updates and new features focused on increased flexibility to facilitate and personalize the business processes of our users.

Flexible Hierarchical Structure

Maestro Student Information System can support different business rules for multiple organizations and learning models all under a single umbrella.

Admin users can create roles at each level of the hierarchy and define user access by role, or per individual.

Configurable & Customizable

Maestro now has over 300 optional parameters that can easily be enabled or disabled per role and per organization, providing tremendous flexibility to support the ongoing changes that occur with institutional growth.

Enhanced Personalization

More user preferences have been added to Maestro’s interface, allowing the set up of external links and help videos at the school and/or role level, personalized layout of grid columns, and customization of the default main menu settings.

Online Christian Consortium Raises the Bar in Online Learning by Partnering with BocaVox Software Solutions

Westlake Village, CA, December 6, 2016 (Newswire.com) – Oaks Christian Online (OCO), one of the finest college preparatory online schools in the nation and the founding school of the Online Christian Consortium (OCC), has adopted Maestro SIS, by BocaVox as their Student Information System (SIS) and Canvas, by Instructure as their Learning Management System.
BocaVox CEO Sue Diseker comments, “We are thrilled to be partners with top-tier consortiums like the OCC, as they reflect our commitment to excellence and ongoing innovation, and help us achieve our goal of developing technology that raises the bar for education.”

Students from partner schools belonging to the OCC can now take courses through the online program in addition to attending their on-campus classes. The OCC manages both part-time and full-time online students through the Maestro database. The hierarchical architecture of Maestro SIS enables the Online Christian Consortium to offer customized services for different schools, programs and student types – all within a single, user-friendly application. This flexibility will enable OCC to extend partnership opportunities internationally.

“By using innovative online learning technology like Maestro SIS and Canvas, we are able to provide our Partner Schools with the platform to support an engaging and fully accredited college preparatory program,” states Dr. Christy Cleugh, VP of Operations and Curriculum Development at OCO.

The BocaVox and Canvas teams worked together to implement an enhanced integration called a Trust Relationship for schools that have their own Canvas LMS but wish to utilize the OCC courses through Maestro and Canvas.
