KEV Group Joins Forces with Pearson to Provide an Integrated Solution
for Schools 
Pearson's K-12 Technology ("Pearson") and KEV Group Inc. ("KEV") are
proud to announce a partnership that will provide best in class
solutions for school activity funds management and online payments by
enhancing the integration between both company's software solutions,
while providing efficiencies and convenience for all constituents. 
RANCHO CORDOVA, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- KEV, the
North American leader in the management and accounting of school
activity funds and online payments, and Pearson (NYSE:PSO), the
providers of industry-leading student information systems such as
PowerSchool SMS and PowerSchool, are pleased to announce that KEV
Group has joined Pearson's Independent Software Vendor (ISV) program
as a commitment to provide new convenience and efficiencies to the
K-12 education sector. 
KEV Group's unique and revolutionary fully integrated School Cash
Suite of products has been developed over the past 16 years to manage
all aspects of every dollar that comes into schools. Whether cash,
check, or an online transaction, KEV's products help reduce fraud and
significantly decrease the workload at schools. Products such as
School Cash Online, KEV's online payment porta
l and School Cash
Register, KEV's point of sale system in particular, will integrate
with PowerSchool and PowerSchool SMS so that school generated funds
can be assigned seamlessly to students, and provide for student-level
accountability. Limiting cash in the school system and increasing
transparency of the cash that does come in, decreases the risk of
bullying, reduces classroom distractions and ensures maximum
efficiency for all users.  
"At Pearson, we're pleased to welcome KEV Group to our growing ISV
Partner program," says Steve Curtis, Chief Strategy and Innovation
Officer. "Companies like KEV Group are complementary to our mission
of supporting schools digital transformation and will help improve
communication between school and home." 
"For over 16 years, KEV has been a leader in school cash management
solutions. Now serving over 6,000 schools across North America, our
goal is to track and streamline every dollar that comes into schools.
Over the past few years, our online payment system has been adopted
by thousands of schools allowing families to pay online for
yearbooks, class trips, lunches, donations, adult education and so
much more. One integrated payment and accounting solution helps
provide convenience to families and audit tracking and fraud
prevention for schools and Districts." says Bram Belzberg, Chairman &
CEO of KEV Group. "Integration with leading student information
systems such as PowerSchool provides for an even better experience
for our users. Our partnership with Pearson demonstrates KEV's
continued commitment to decreasing the workload of school and
District staff. Now, Pearson customers will be able to take advantage
of the unique benefits of KEV's product Suite and the efficiencies
that this partnership creates. We are excited to work with Pearson to
grow and develop our partnership going forward."
