SBSS was formed in 1986 to provide accounting and tax services and develop customized accounting systems for small businesses. The company later branched into the development of customized software for clients in other industries. We have developed customized Real Estate Management, Church Management, Funeral Directors Management, and even Newspaper Agency Management programs. SBSS develops customized software that is specifically designed to meet the exact needs of individual clients.
The first system designed for general distribution was a school telephone-calling (InfoLine) program written in response to a request from several Chicago Public School System (CPS) principals who were unhappy with features in other calling systems. Many Chicago Public Schools used this system for years. Eventually CPS contracted with AT&T to provide calling services district wide. Even then, many schools continue using InfoLine because of its value and flexibility.
Some of our current products for general distribution are AdPage Plus, a web based business directory program that displays business information in a multi-media format and Call Manager Plus used by Physical Therapists, Occupation Therapists, Chiropractors and other medical professionals whose patients regularly have multiple appointments, at different times, in a week.
Our most recent education products are Info-Line Plus and Parent-Update systems. These are both web based, turnkey solutions designed for a broad spectrum of schools both private and public. These products enable communication with families of all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds and languages. These products are designed to provide timely communication on attendance, discipline, homework assignments, and progress reports.
