Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Veracross' only customer base is private, independent, K-12 schools. In other words, they're not spending resources on configuring the next state-mandated report in Alaska. They're only dealing with private, independent, K-12 schools. Towards that end, their management of student/teacher/school data is excellent. I have read, though have no direct experience yet, that their Advancement module is less well-suited to sophisticated fund-raising activities. Similarly, their LMS is somewhat lacking. This doesn't affect us directly, and I hold out hope that their API will continue to evolve and mitigate some of these limitations.

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.

  • Student and family data is easy to keep up to date. And there is so much data that you can keep track of. It is so helpful to have all data in one place so we don’t have a human error in transfers g to another system.
  • Recording donations is very easy and you can attach backup documents very easy which is great during our yearly audit. All records are in the system and can be pulled at anytime.
  • Easy for parents to sign in to view and edit their own information as well as view student reports.

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.

We will continue to use Veracross for the simple fact that we have one database across all of the departments in our school. Veracross continues to listen to customer feedback and improve and enhance the system.

Veracross support is easy to engage through their support ticket system. They can sometimes take a day or two to respond to some tickets. Throughout the implementation phase of our project, there were times that it took longer, but at that point only our account manager was a part of our ticket instance.

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.

As a parent I remember when this was RenWeb. The school used it for communication. Veracross can do the communication things that RenWeb did. I am more familiar now with Veracross.

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.

Veracross

  • Easily take attendance assuming all students are present
  • Loss of ability to see past report cards
  • Easily see a list of student birthdays
