    Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

    Senior Systems school software is great for small schools looking for a software package that can be implemented across many departments in the school at a reasonable price. Senior Systems does offer on boarding and training to help learn the system but continuing training is difficult though also necessary. Senior's admissions software modules leave much to be desired though they have purchased Ravenna which offers a top-of-the-line option that blends very well with Senior.

    Pros

    Active Network, LLC

    • Separation of payer and the person attending the activity. For example: children incur charges, but the parent is responsible for paying them.
    • Fast - in our old system there was a delay while customers waited for the system to respond.

    Cons

    Active Network, LLC

    • I really like the look and feel of ActiveNet Reporting, but it isn't extremely customizable. Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback.
    • It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use. (EMS, StarRez, etc.) When planning conferences, we currently have hotel guests and registration that we would like to share information for through each system. Currently it is just double data entry.
    • Would like to be able to add more resources and details to a room booking and have the corresponding departments be notified of the order/track inventory.

    • Outdated look and feel for internal and external customers.
    • Somewhat complicated and tough to learn; it's not very intuitive.
    • Customer service response times and support leave something to be desired.

        On the admissions front, SchoolAdmin beats the Senior Admissions module hands down for ease of use, performance, customer service, and reliability. We have had no downtime issues with Senior but regularly experienced downtime issues with Senior. School Admin is also very intuitive and easy to learn and use. Senior has a much steeper learning curve.

        Return on Investment

        Active Network, LLC

        • Not sure yet.
        • It is newer to me and my department.
        • Double data entry which is just extra man hours.

        • A fairly priced system.
        • [The] convenience of having to manage only one system and database.
        • Senior is long overdue for an update and refresh to make it look modern and to make it more easy and intuitive to use.
