    Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

    Frontline Education

    Frontline is great for making sure that absences are reported to management and Human Resources. It is helpful for scheduling subs to fill in, as well as seeing upcoming dates where employees do not have to come to work. Frontline is well-suited for an easy-to-use scheduling system. As it isn't a complex program, there isn't a lot that can go wrong with it. However, if you're looking for something more robust and with better integration with other platforms, you might want to look elsewhere.

    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.

    Frontline Education

    • Easily submission process. Select the day you need to schedule on the listed calendar, mark the type of request, and submit.
    • Works on different digital devices including phones, tablets, and computers.
    • Easily track your balances by looking at your account history.
    • Delete requests you have already submitted.

    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.

    • Teachers cannot cancel their own absence. We have to ask the office staff to do so. This is irritating when an absence must be canceled (Due to a canceled professional development, for example).
    • Sometimes absences go unfilled. It would be great if AESOP could have a roster of qualified substitutes to cover absences.
    • You cannot assign your absence to a particular substitute if you know he or she is available and a good fit for your absence.

        While we have had minor issues logging in as our organization has its own login page, the site and its application are very easy to use. So long as members of a group log in through the appropriate page, navigating and using this site is quite easy. With the transition from Aesop to Frontline, the page also seems to have worked through any glitches found with the previous page and its app.

        Frontline Education

        Internal support is provided by EDU Staff based out of Grand Rapids. Whenever I have had an issue they are very responsive to my needs. For instance, there may be conflicts in the amount of money that was listed for the contract. There may be questions about the length of an assignment such as 1/2 day, full day, or early dismissal. The school will sometimes enter the wrong information. Very good IT support, but sometimes you are on hold for 5 to 10 minutes because they do not have enough workers in their Call Center

        I have used ReadySub in a previous district, but at a different level than I use Aesop Online. Aesop definitely has familiarity in Illinois school district versus other vendors. Additionally, because we utilize Frontline Recruiting & Hiring, there is minor integration there that helps adding new employees or substitutes in Aesop directly from their application.

        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.

        • It's given staff direct access to inputting their absences and secure coverage quicker, whereas before they had to make a call to a person. That person had to secure coverage for the entire district at different levels. Sometimes that person was absent or unable to provide coverage.
