ACTIVE Education

Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Veracross

We migrated from Senior Systems. Veracross is a much simpler and more powerful SIS (Student Information System). The ability to access it via a web browser from any device is a huge game changer. Once workflows are learned, and queries are built, it allows users to do things that took hours in a few minutes.

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.

Veracross

  • Grades-Real time data about grades for students, parents, and teachers.
  • Directory-Easy to find information about students and faculty in one place.
  • Calendar-Easy to check on school events and other activities.

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.

Veracross

  • My biggest concern is that it is not particularly intuitive so it can be hard to remember how to do things you don't do often.

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.

Veracross

We use Veracross for many things within our learning management system, specifically for calculating budget spending. We were able to put together class schedules, directories, budget management, comportment forms, attendance and mass communication abilities. We still need to supplement with haiku (through powerschool) and with the google suite. Veracross is not a catch-all but it certainly catches a lot

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

  • 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.
