    FACTS

    We base our entire student data on the Student ID that is produced in FACTS. We create user accounts for technology and online textbooks as well as their lunch account, all based on the Student ID. We also can run many different reports using the SID as the data constant and all the other information variables are available as needed to report.

    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.

    FACTS

    • It could use more space for uploading classroom media.
    • It could lessen the number of new open windows or frames for various functions that can be done on the same screen.
    • It could incorporate more social-media like tools to make it more native for students and parents.

        FACTS

        It's user-friendly, the customer service is great, and we have a significant amount of time invested in training our faculty and staff to use many aspects of FACTS within their areas of responsibility. I really like the variety of reports I can generate which gives important data to our administration and Board.

        FACTS

        Switched from Blackbaud to RenWeb now FACTS. We made the change for affordability and because more software components were included. Blackbaud required the purchase of multiple additional modules.
