Frontline Technologies Acquires Centris Group
Founded in 1984, The Centris Group has built software to help K-12 educators manage Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), Response to Intervention (RTI) programs, Medicaid billing and other special education services. Centris develops truly state-specific software that is designed from the practitioner’s perspective and employs leading-edge technology. The comprehensive suite of Centris education solutions includes management systems tailored specifically for each area of the education value-chain. Centris Group tools are used in more than 1,000 districts and school agencies, especially in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
This acquisition helps bring Frontline one step closer to its goal of supplying all of the tools necessary to serve the education community on a daily basis. Frontline and Centris already serve many of the same districts, with 84% customer overlap in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, which allows for greater understanding of the intricacies and nuances of each state. Both organizations are also committed to the ongoing support and growth of partnerships in the administrative solutions arena. Frontline currently integrates with over 180 K-12 administrative software providers. Solutions from both companies support more than 200 vendor relationships.
Special education is a key component of the educational ecosystem and Centris offers a best-in-class solution for this segment. This acquisition goes a long way towards rounding out our education software portfolio and introducing our solution set to the special education market.Tim CliffordFrontline President & CEO (former)
