ACTIVE Education

Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Synergy Education Platform

It is well suited for all K-12 education systems that are looking for effective ways to improve and streamline their information. It would not be as useful for a college or a university system as it does not have the complexity needed in order to carry out all of the specific functions that a university system would need.

Pros

ACTIVE Education

  • 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 Education

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

ACTIVE Education

ACTIVE Network allowed: grouping of classes, good interface, allowed importing of records, complex payment plans, per class fee structures, user fees, and trial classes.

Return on Investment

ACTIVE Education

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