    Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

    Veracross

    Veracross is software that can be highly recommended to anyone in the education industry. Veracross offers a breadth of services varying from administration to student-parent communication. The unique abilities that Veracross offers such as email reminders, attendance management, billing, and payment processing, and attendance tracking have made my job as an administrative support manager so much easier and more productive here at Teachables.

    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.

    Veracross

    • mobile-friendly portal for staffulty, parents, and students
    • built-in or easy-to-configure integration with other systems (for example, RankOne and Naviance)
    • targeted messaging based on data within the system
    • "where is student now?" is one-click away

    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.

    • In the development module, it is often hard to pull reports because there are so many ways to do it. I work around that by saving reports I often pull so I don’t have to constantly rebuild reports.
    • The communications module, Composer, needs a major upgrade. It is not very user-friendly and there are not ways to edit or design modern and good-looking emails and newsletters. Not a lot of formatting options.

        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.

        LOVE the Technical Response Team - the first line of help at Veracross. I can quickly submit a ticket and receive a response knowing that they have looked in our system and know what we are trying to do! Our account manager is also amazing! So nice to have a person within the company who knows our school and our needs!

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

        Veracross

        Veracross has better built-in integrations with other platforms/systems. IT is much simpler and easy to use. It keeps records in a much simpler way and can be accessed through different modes of reporting. It is very easy to keep track of the progress in any training, project, or assignment with Veracross.

        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.

        • Not sure, but our school has been using it for years, so it must be worth it. Veracross is good about updating and adding features.
