Weidenhammer’s New alioTM Software Leads
the Education Market

An evolution from SAGE, alio deemed the software solution for Finance Management
& Human Resources in the Education Industry



Wyomissing, Pa., July 30, 2007 — On August 1, 2007, Weidenhammer Systems Corporation will launch its new alio software, a comprehensive suite of applications designed for the financial management, payroll and human resources needs of K-12 schools.

After purchasing SAGE software from Information Design, Inc., Weidenhammer made enhancements to it and is rolling out the upgraded software under the name alio. “Essentially, we’ve re-engineered an already robust system to one that is even more intuitive,” said John Weidenhammer, CEO, Weidenhammer Systems Corporation. “alio will not only be an upgrade for our current SAGE users, but will also provide easily implemented and cost effective solutions for those who use Weidenhammer’s CIMS software solutions and other applications.”

alio is the next generation in software – it’s sophisticated yet affordable and very easy to use,” said Weidenhammer. alio has accounting procedures and auditing controls that enable administrators to easily budget, monitor and control their school’s finances. Information is electronically transferred to the general ledger, minimizing data entry requirements and human error.

With automated district financial, payroll and personnel needs to manage, school finance administrators need to only work on one database which enables multi-year reporting, instant access to information, and the ability to produce reports quickly. Since alio runs on familiar operating systems, using alio will be intuitive for many administrators.

Developed for efficiency, alio software was collaboratively designed and developed by a team of accountants, auditors, and technical design experts. Built on Oracle™ Technology, alio runs on Windows, Linux and Unix and can be accessed via Web or client server system architectures without the need for specialized equipment or additional administrative positions. Additionally,alio can be a key factor in implementing an environmentally friendly paperless office, resulting in reduced operations costs.
