Educational Products Supplier to Schools Worldwide Extends 20-Year Partnership with TECSYS
MONTREAL, August 7, 2014 — TECSYS Inc. (TSX: TCS), an industry-leading supply chain management software company, announced today that Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.), a TECSYS customer since the mid-nineties, has extended its partnership with TECSYS to modernize its technology; upgrading the full suite of its software applications to TECSYS' Java-based platform for a seamless end-to-end management of its supply chain.
For close to 20 years, A.C.E. has been relying on TECSYS' supply chain management software to deliver some 4,000 educational products to primarily schools in over 140 countries. The company distributes curriculum, training and educational supplies directly to students at home and to thousands of schools on six continents. The number of schools using A.C.E.'s curriculum has grown from a handful in the early seventies to several thousand today.
Dr. Gregory D. Mutsch, Executive Director of Business Administration at A.C.E., commented: "A strong ethical partnership and dependable supply chain platform are two great reasons to stay the course with TECSYS. At this juncture of our development, we could have looked at other supply chain software providers. TECSYS' integrity, professionalism and commitment to us, individually and to our business, are the glue that clearly cemented our partnership for years to come. Moving forward, we see TECSYS as the one-stop shop for our supply chain matters where everything that we do is under the TECSYS umbrella."
From its beginning, A.C.E. has maintained high standards and remained committed to setting children on a path for success. The goal is the same today: to prepare children for the world and give them the academic and spiritual tools necessary to achieve their God-given potential.
Founded in 1970 by Dr. and Mrs. Donald Howard, Accelerated Christian Education is an organization that starts Christian schools and produces academic K-12 Christian school curriculum. Dr. Howard opened the first school with 45 students to use the A.C.E. program in Garland, Texas. By 1971, A.C.E. had added six new schools and by 1980 there were over 3,000 Christian schools in the United States associated with A.C.E. Today there are thousands of schools and many thousands of homeschools in over 140 different countries worldwide that use the A.C.E. programs.
