    Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

    I enjoy that I can look
    up my students and see all of their family information, including phone numbers
    for contacting family members, and that I can take attendance using this
    software. Even before the child/family enters my classroom, I can tell if there
    is any sensitive background information about them.

    Even though I have not
    opted to utilize it, I enjoy the seating chart function that allows me to
    construct one using student images. Sometimes, Tyler SIS is despised by
    teachers and building officials. The only people who seem to like it are those
    who can receive their data from the central school office.

    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.

        All of the information about the students is in one spot. It is simple to organize information because there is no sophisticated mechanism to employ. That the majority of the information I need on a daily basis is all in one place. Every day, I use it to keep track of my attendance, grades, and other important information.

        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.

        • There are so many features that we have not had to buy additional products (so it saves us money).
        • Tyler SIS also makes things easier for parents by consolidating all information they need.
        • There have been many times where the website has been down, and it essentially shuts us down until the issue is resolved.
