As the year winds down, we all find ourselves reflecting on everything we have accomplished this year, and we start looking ahead to what the next year will bring. This is the perfect time to not only be grateful for all we have but to recognize and give back to the community. Here at Magnus, we believe in the power of making things better and getting the job done. We are incredibly proud of our team for their enthusiasm to bring positivity into the community.
This year, Magnus is giving back by donating to two very special organizations:
… And we’re back! Here at Magnus, the third quarter is ALWAYS a busy one. With Back to School during this time, our phone lines are busy, inboxes are full, and form submission hits a new record high year after year. With that said, our Q3 Employee of the Quarter is a special one. It means this person really shined during our most hectic time of the year. Ed, our Lead Product Analyst, has been exceptionally demonstrating the Magnus values, and we sure are proud of him!
Let me tell you a little bit about our Employee of the Quarter, Ed… Ed is a problem solver… Literally. His role here at Magnus is to listen to our customer feedback and recommendations regarding the Magnus software and to determine how we can make the product better with every new feature release. He leads our Product Team with hard-work, team collaboration, and some dad jokes to keep it fun. Read on to learn more about Ed!
Coordinated Care Across Campus and Beyond… that’s what the folks at Magnus say! Our number one goal here at Magnus is to make sure each of our client school’s health, safety, and emergency preparedness needs are met, so their students can focus on learning.
Students interact with a lot… A LOT… of people who care about them. Starting with the parents and guardians, as well as many other family members, plus babysitters, the doctors, and primary care physicians come into their lives at a very early age. Once they start school, they have teachers, guidance counselors, and school nurses making sure they are healthy and happy on campus. And, don’t forget about the bus drivers! As they grow older, they start to become more active and social, which leads to them joining clubs and teams and other activity groups. Add up all of the people in a student’s life, and that is a ton of interaction as they grow up and go through school.
Community is important to each and every one of us here at Magnus. We’re proud to call Raleigh, NC and West Chester, PA, our co-home! We’re passionate about helping others, especially students and schools. Even though our Help Desk call and email volume increases during Back to School time, we are all working hard, company-wide, to make sure each and every Magnus user has the help they need to successfully turn in their health forms and be prepared to return to the classroom.
Magnus Mobile 2.0 is here! Our mobile app has gone through a whole lot of work, and is better than ever! We know the importance of the mobile device, that generally everyone has their phone or tablet nearby, and we definitely understand the significance of always being prepared to care for your students on and off campus. So we took our mobile app, put it under a microscope, then updated the look, features, and functionality, and made sure it was up to the Magnus standards. The New Magnus Mobile App is now Live for your use in tracking student health information and being emergency prepared!
Allow me to introduce Kerri, our first Employee of the Quarter for the year 2018. Kerri walks into the office everyday with a smile on her face. She works hard, is always willing to help others, and she makes sure to put her all into every task.
Kerri currently resides on the Client Success team, where she is a proactive problem-solver for our clients. She works to analyze how our clients are using the system, makes sure everyone is using Magnus to its full potential, and answers Admin User questions about the latest software features.

We’re back with the last round of our Magnus Spotlight blog posts featuring our Leadership Team here at Magnus Health! Previously we learned that our CEO Brian Biddulph-Krentar loves soccer and working out, but cannot live without pizza... we met our Director of Marketing, Inese Hoover, a travel hockey Mom who loves the Chicago Blackhawks... and we introduced our newest Director, Dino Skerlos, who joined our downtown Raleigh office last August to manage the Sales team... when he’s not golfing.
Now let’s meet the final member of the Magnus Leadership Team that holds down the fort on the software side of our company. Our Director of Technology, Ian Panulla, is the man behind the scenes that keeps the Magnus system up and running. Ian comes from the CareFlow team with the acquisition, where he was the designer and creator of the CareFlow software. He is the architect behind the software, and he drinks more coffee than the rest of the office combined.
