Why have the product names changed? 

Since becoming a part of Frontline Education, Centris’ products have been rebranded as Frontline Special Education Management. The name change helps align Centris’ products with the rest of the K-12 software solutions Frontline Education offers.

How is Frontline Special Education Management different from IEP Direct and other Centris products?
