AcademicWorks

We manage over 200 applications online, and could definitely take on more. If you only manage a low number - this would still be great software, but you may not need this. Also, if you have very specific applications, this might not be the best fit. However, if most of your applications are the same and just vary with some specific questions - this is perfect!

Pros

  • Reporting - pulling reports in AcademicWorks is so simple and quick. Whether I am putting together a report of applicants for a donor, or the pulling the applicants from a specific school or major, I can do it by the click of a button.
  • Support - if I ever have questions or need help problem solving, the support desk is readily available.
  • Flexibility - we can customize pretty much every aspect of how the user experiences AcademicWorks

Cons

  • There could be improvement when attaching documents. Students sometimes get errors on uploading documents due to file names with certain characters.
  • Room for improvement could be mobile functionality.

  • I'd like to see more easy to use customization tools for emails and email signups

Alternatives Considered

At the time that we made the switch, NextGen was not able to offer the option that committee reviewers could rank a student and that their ranking could carry over into multiple scholarships. We already had over 70 committee reviewers and the process to review some of the more general scholarship applicants was taking more than 10 hours. The AcademicWorks System allows each applicant to be ranked by a number of committee reviewers (you set the number of reviewers) one time and the score can be propagated across multiple scholarships. This is an efficient use of the reviewers time and keeps the time commitment manageable.

We evaluated different Salesforce options and a lot of others. EveryAction stood out for price and features - particularly we liked the sync-up with the VAN which I forgot to mention before.
