Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

When it comes to tracking grades and attendance or even just entering grades and attendance, this has been the best system I have used in fifteen years in education. The administrative side has many features and tools that allow us as a school or district to identify students that would benefit from specific interventions. Overall, it has been a great product for us. I am not aware of any scenarios where Tyler SIS is less appropriate than other products.

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.

  • Need for labels of all of the navigation pictures. It is difficult for me to know what button I am clicking into if I haven't accessed that part of the software in a while.
  • It would be nice to have a tutorial to know how to navigate the software better. It can be difficult to navigate at the beginning.
  • Remove the "BULLETIN" section.

Everything about Tyler SIS has been better than 4Clicks. I remember it being a running joke in my building about how the "four clicks" was such a selling point. Sometimes it was not really four clicks until you reached what you need, but it also felt as though it required four clicks to even do a simple thing. The gradebook system alone was infuriating with how many clicks (and the loading) it took to enter grades.

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.
