Dynamic Data Concepts began in 1992 when it developed a custom software package called School Director Pro for a large school. The school had searched the commercial market for an “off the shelf” solution, but found the available products to be rigid, cumbersome, and unsuitable for their specific needs. The school hired a software-consulting firm to help them in their quest. With their help, it was determined that an application that would meet their needs simply did not exist.
Determined to create the system of their dreams, and armed with a comprehensive needs assessment, the school interviewed several prospective software developers. Upon being selected, the developer spent three years “experiencing” the school, interacting with all levels of the staff and analyzing their needs throughout the school-year cycle. It was within the school setting, hand-in-hand with the end users, that the application was designed, programmed, and tested.
Once implemented, the school saw productivity increase and the margin of error diminish. By having one centralized and comprehensive system, all their data was now conveniently organized and readily accessible, facilitating the tasks of the various staff members throughout the school.
The success of the system circulated throughout the education and non-profit world and calls began to come in from other organizations requesting similar assistance. In response, Dynamic Data Concepts, Inc. was formed in 1995. The system was packaged for the commercial market and the original School Director Pro application was released to the public. As soon as the application hit the market, numerous schools and fundraising organizations jumped on the bandwagon, eager to utilize SDP for their computing needs.
As clientele grew, so did the system’s level of sophistication. Since our initial DOS-based system, Dynamic Data Concepts has released three Windows based systems. Our current release, the 360° Solutions Suite incorporates over 20 years of client feedback with the latest in technology. Surpassing all others in terms of scope and penetration, the 360° Solutions Suite includes Windows, Web and Mobile solutions.
