Likelihood to Recommend

ACTIVE Education

Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Tyler SIS

Tyler SIS is well suited to take attendance, and retrieve student information when needed. It is less suited when needing to pay a lunch balance or access the gradebook. It can be difficult to navigate the software with all of the different functions. A tutorial would be helpful in this realm to help the ease of understanding the software.

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.

Tyler SIS

  • Keeps information secure, safe, and encrypted.
  • Student information is easy to navigate when needed by authorized users.
  • Allows for teachers to have their classes organized to take attendance easily.

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.

Tyler SIS

  • 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.

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.

I am not familiar with another software system as I have only been in the organization when they have used Tyler SIS

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.

Tyler SIS

  • Allowed the organization to transfer records of students when needed.
  • Allows the administrators and authorized staff to contact parents or guardians because the information is all in the software.
  • Easy way to take attendance during class.
