Business Enhancement System Transformation (BEST)

The Business Enhancement System Transformation Project (BEST) is a necessary system modernization for LACOE and Hacienda La Puente Unified School District. One goal of the BEST Project is to have an integrated Enterprise Resource Planning System for budget development, finance, human resources, and payroll. Additional strategic goals include: districts' end-users have immediate online access to data and reports, the system is highly scalable and adaptable to regulatory code changes, and the system is user-friendly and meets end-users' needs. The systems that have been replaced in this project are the PeopleSoft Financial and Human Resource Systems.
