OpenRange embraces Oklahoma’s heritage of resilience, collaboration and innovation. It allows Oklahoma schools and technology centers to capitalize on the accomplishments and strengths of Oklahoma’s statewide IT consolidation efforts. It provides access to the combined purchasing power of all educational institutions and their affiliates and enables schools to provide existing technology services more efficiently and the ability to expand those services quickly and cost-effectively.
OpenRange creates a model in which schools and technology centers are less dependent on capital expenditures to meet their technology needs. Instead, this shared services model makes technology an operational expense - all the while reducing costs and simplifying technology budgets.
OpenRange leverages economies of scale to provide consistent, quality-driven and cost-efficient technology services for education entities, administrators, teachers and students – regardless of their size.
OpenRange allows schools and technology centers to take advantage of statewide IT services to improve the educational experience for teachers and students while reducing the costs and complexities of providing those services internally.
We are confident we’ll see substantial cost savings for the State of Oklahoma. As a point of reference, we conducted a high-level assessment of one student information system platform used by roughly 10% of Oklahoma’s school districts and representing 30% of the student population. The results of that study indicate a shared services offering for those districts could present a positive net present value of $8.3M.
