product from SchoolDude ( I know, it sounds a little funky) and they
offered an IT component. Its more oriented toward building maintenance
and they are working on an upgrade that will enhance the IT portion.

servers so you can get to it from anywhere so there are no local costs
such as hardware, software, installation and support. the url is
