Role: Director of Product Management at at SchoolPass
Specno is Incredible
SchoolPass is an educational technology company that provides attendance, dismissal and school safety automation solutions to K-12 institutions. Primarily US based, the SchoolPass team is entirely remote and collaborates with contractors within and outside the United States. My role is Director of Product Management, and I frequently work alongside the development team and dev contract teams to articulate requirements for new features, elaborate on bugs found by QA and customer success, and facilitate communication between the teams during sprint planning and daily scrum.

Our website was created 15 years ago and was outdated. We needed to migrate to a new, mobile friendly framework that could also unlock new functionality. Specno's primary tasks are the migration of our legacy functionality to a new framework, and spearheading all front end web development for new features. We had used a prior contracting group to begin the Angular site migration but it was clear that we needed more expertise specifically in Angular, as well as an elevated level of creativity, to continue.

We have been working with the team since March 2020, and regularly meet with the Specno dev team and discuss features both small and large, as well as how to utilize the unique functionality offered in Angular.js to realize our greatest hopes for the product. The developers are great at communicating with our internal team about items that might not be clear, or endpoints that need to be adjusted, as well as gather feedback from all stakeholders across our organization. The Angular team is used to meeting our deadlines and helping us set reasonable expectations for development timelines.

It's not only the quality of their work, but the quality of the people we get to work with, that truly sets Specno apart. The team there are more than just developers we work with, they are just as much a part of the SchoolPass team as any of our internal teammates. Without Dane, Josh, Marnus, and Ross, we would not have been able to move at the speed we've been moving at this year!

What do you like most about the company?

My favorite part of working with Specno is the people! They are kind, patient, collaborative, and always look forward to a challenge!

Specno makes dreams come true!
Not having developed an app before or having any idea of what it entails, we were guided through each and every step with patience and understanding by Specno. Not being able to speak the high-tech language of a developer, a highly professional project manager guided us through the tricky terrain and in doing so made sure we were fully aware of what every piece of unknown jargon meant. We felt constantly comfortable and questions were always encouraged and answered. Having the absolute comfort of working with a team that tries to fulfill a dream within budget has ensured that we will stay clients. Thank you Specno

What do you like most about the company?

Professionalism Reliable Encourages questions Adaptable

What they should improve on?

Continuity with project managers on projects. Keeping one manager on the project means one relationship needs to be built with the client, suddenly bringing in another manager can cause a divide in the already established relationship between client and company.
