    Prologic's has long been known for providing school districts with superior service and support. From our experience as a support company, we saw the dramatic shortcomings of legacy systems that had been patched together to meet growing information and reporting requirements. We wanted to create a product that took advantage of new technology and was an industry-intelligent solution. In 2003, we began to develop a Total Education Administrative Management Solution (TEAMS). Launched in 2005, TEAMS is the most extensive administrative solution ever offered to the K-12 industry.
