Joyce

Accounting and Human Resources

I have worked in the payroll & accounting field since the days of ledger books and double entry bookkeeping. I enjoy the relaxed, yet focused, atmosphere of a small company where you get to know everyone and have the opportunity to wear several hats. Also, a company of our size allows us to treat our customers in a more personal way and respond to their needs quickly.

I grew up on a farm in the mid-west so I guess you could say that I have country values; I would rather hike in the woods than browse through a mall; I enjoy country music more than rock & roll; and you would be more apt to find me in a bowling alley than a concert hall.

Jeanette

Business Analyst

Jeanette is a tried and true Jill of all trades. Once upon a time I was fluent as a developer, but the current team won’t let me play in the code (I don’t blame them). I enjoy using my skills in analysis, design, and project management to work with customers to formulate solutions to their business needs. One of the joys of my work is being able to work across many different subject areas and learn whole new businesses while being a contributing member. I like being in an environment where I am constantly learning.

The Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council’s annual Best Practices Competition recognizes organizations that have created collaborative data solutions using standards that employ automated, reusable and sustainable technologies to improve institutional performance, student service delivery and electronic connectivity between stakeholders. AcademyOne’s clients are two-time recipients of this award.

The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning, a leader in the field of prior learning assessment services, has partnered with AcademyOne to provide a software platform and technical expertise to clients who require a collaborative, multi-institutional PLA solution.

The Groningen Declaration seeks common ground in best serving the academic and professional mobility needs of citizens worldwide by bringing together key stakeholders in the digital student data ecosystem. AcademyOne is one of a few for-profit organizations invited to participate in this international organization’s discussions and workshops.

AcademyOne has been asked on several occasions to provide expert testimony on issues surrounding the transfer of academic credit and bridging student information systems with shared technology between higher education institutions in the United States.
