Lucid Data Corporation introduces PDEssentials. In response to market demand for a robust but streamlined professional learning management system, Lucid introduces a new product that focuses on key PDMS elements – – managing courses, course registration, out-of-district PD, teaching credentials and staff. PDEssentials also includes user customizable forms and form routing to support these essential features. Just like Lucid’s industry leading flagship product, PDExpress, customers will be able to produce reports, create ad-hoc queries, and import data from other sources. PDEssentials is competitively priced and is available as a Cloud or locally hosted solution.
