SuccessEd and MSB Announce New Partnership

Expanding Value to their Common Customers SuccessEd, the innovative software provider for educators, and MSB, the Austin-based supplier of Medicaid solutions, are proud to announce an exciting new partnership. As both organizations continue to grow the number of districts they are serving across the country, the overlap of common customers made the partnership an area of obvious interest and customer value-add. “We are thrilled to announce this new partnership," says Jim Bridges, SuccessEd President and CEO. "Those SuccessEd customers that chose to outsource their Medicaid claims processing to MSB are certainly thrilled as well. We have many customers who use MSB to bill SHARS. Since the Medicaid services originate in the ARD/IEP documents completed in the SuccessEd application, this partnership was a natural evolution. It is a step that many of the common MSB and SuccessEd customers have encouraged us to explore," Bridges added. "At MSB, we too are excited about this partnership", says Tabbatha Callaway, MSB Managing Director. "Working with SuccessEd will allow us to easily integrate the student data, goals and objectives that they create in SE Manager into our X Logs program to assist district staff with documenting their services for students. I know that our customers that use SuccessEd to manage their special student populations will be as excited by this as we are," Callaway added. About MSB MSB is clear in its purpose--striving to maximize Medicaid to Schools revenue while minimizing school districts' administrative effort in obtaining the Medicaid revenue. Founded in 1995, this guiding purpose has helped them become the leader in this market, serving school districts from coast to coast and border to border. In 2011, MSB moved all of its operations to Austin, Texas. They remain committed [...]
