PowerSchool Group LLC Risks and Challenges
Pearson sold PowerSchool, which serves nearly 13 million students in more than 70 countries, generated $97 million in revenues and $20 million in operating income to private equity group Vista Equity Partners for $350m. The world's largest education company by revenues, and owner of the Financial Times, said it was seeking to focus on teaching and assessment tools rather than administration. Selling one of its major cash cows would be the latest in a series of big moves for Pearson, which is coming out of a costly organization restructuring led by CEO John Fallon. Slimming down could explain why Pearson may be letting go of PowerSchool. Even though its the most-widely used SIS in the US, the tool has also been troubled.
PowerSchool Group LLC Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
PowerSchool primarily sells through its direct sales force but it also relies on its ecosystem of 140+ partners. PowerSchool has built a network of consulting firms for implementing its student information systems.
