Script has been in existence for 1 1/2 years and is currently in use in 5 schools, including FACE, Dayspring Academy, Pepin Academies, Palmer Ranch Imagine Schools, and Learning Gate Community School. Script is initially targetting the private charter school industry. “We’re coming up with some great partners and we have a lot of schools lined up,” Danny said; “we’d love to be in our first Pinellas County school though.” Several of the current schools using Script cater to students with special needs; “Special needs schools love us because we eliminate tons and tons of paperwork” Danny said.
Script currently has two main competitors, PermissionClick and ZippSlip. These companies often lack security, though, and they don’t offer payment processing or administrator approval, giving Script an advantage.
Currently, Script is based out of Tampa Bay WaVE. They launched in March 2016 and secured funding in July 2017. They have reached their 5-school milestone this year and recently began Phase 1 Development. By 2018, Script anticipates switching to an interchange pricing model, “which will lower our processing fees,” Danny said.
