Automated Student Management Software
BusBoss™ Live Sync automates the process of adding, withdrawing or changing student information simultaneously in BusBoss and in your school district’s SIS (Student Information System), such as PowerSchool and SunGard. Our Live Sync student management software eliminates the need for redundant data entry and reduces the chance of error – this means manually importing student data from the SIS export file to update BusBoss is no longer necessary.
Check out how BusBoss Live Sync works with PowerSchool and SunGard eSchool.
BusBoss Live Sync may also be used to automatically update the SIS school bus routing information so district staff and even parents get direct access, depending on the configuration and permission settings.
A Summary Of BusBoss Live Sync Features
- Automatically adds new students, withdraws students and updates student changes directly from the SIS into BusBoss
- Verifies that all home and mailing addresses contain data; if either is blank, data is copied from the other (students may have an unlimited number of addresses)
- Updates pick-up and/or drop-off locations for alternate addresses, such as primary, secondary and split-custody routing
- Formats addresses into their component parts (house number, prefix, street name, suffix, apartment number, city, state and zip)
- Updates student addresses within BusBoss with student information system addresses
- Automatically exports pick-up and drop-off bus route information from BusBoss into student information system tables (stop description, stop time, bus number, etc.)
- Remote software installation, personal training and support tailored to your needs

BusBoss Live Sync Alternative
If you don’t have PowerSchool or SunGard and can’t get administration to approve implementing SIF, BusBoss can still help. BusBoss can create a Custom Import Tool that does everything these other products do to integrate your student management software.
Custom Import Tools can be created for any of the following:
- Automatically import student information directly from the SIS into BusBoss
- Automatically update secondary student addresses within BusBoss SIS addresses
- Automatically export student routing route information from BusBoss into your SIS (stop description, stop time, bus number, etc.)
