We have over 200 remote employees that work a variety of shifts that needed to be filled. This isn't your normal 9 to 5 time shifts so the need to find an easy solution was there. Celayix fills that gap easily!

Frontline Absence Management

Great for school business offices or school board/main offices going digital with staff submission of days off, vacation, sick, professional, personal, etc. Helps alleviate time passing physical documents and affords the user a platform they can track their balances and easily submit requests digitally using their phone. If you are a Frontline user of their other products, this seems like a no-brainer and can integrate with them, as well as other programs

  • Easily report all time tracking.

Frontline Absence Management

  • Allows teachers to mark themselves absent 24/7: this is a plus because you don't have to worry about the message being lost by a service. You can also procure a substitute in advance if you know you'll be out for a professional training or field trip.
  • You can upload your lesson plans or email your substitute so the substitute is prepared to teach your classes.
  • You can see a history of absences so you can cross-reference your leave allotments with your history on AESOP.

Cons

Celayix

  • The mobile version is a bit wanky and needs improvement.
  • No app available on the iPhone for employees (only managers).

Frontline Absence Management

  • There really isn't much. This is a pretty simple program to use and is part of Frontline, which many school districts use.
  • Pricing is high. Especially with growing costs and the fact that it costs extra to integrate or streamline with single sign-on to the other Frontline products.

While we have had minor issues logging in as our organization has its own login page, the site and its application are very easy to use. So long as members of a group log in through the appropriate page, navigating and using this site is quite easy. With the transition from Aesop to Frontline, the page also seems to have worked through any glitches found with the previous page and its app.

We were given a dedicated customer service rep that is there whenever we need them. Emails are answered within hours and the knowledge base they have has many of the answers including easy to follow how-to's. We haven't run into any issues that can't be solved in less than 24 hours.

Internal support is provided by EDU Staff based out of Grand Rapids. Whenever I have had an issue they are very responsive to my needs. For instance, there may be conflicts in the amount of money that was listed for the contract. There may be questions about the length of an assignment such as 1/2 day, full day, or early dismissal. The school will sometimes enter the wrong information. Very good IT support, but sometimes you are on hold for 5 to 10 minutes because they do not have enough workers in their Call Center

Frontline Absence Management

Frontline Absence Management (formerly Aesop) was clearly above eSchoolPlus and all other substitute fulfillment systems. Our previous software, Subfinder, was purchased by Frontline several years after we migrated to Frontline Absence Management (formerly Aesop). Frontline Absence Management (formerly Aesop) was worlds above it and much easier to use.

Return on Investment

Celayix

  • We needed to automate much of the shift allocations and this solution did it.
  • The solution we picked had to have integrations such as Salesforce and Celayix has that.

Frontline Absence Management

  • It's given staff direct access to inputting their absences and secure coverage quicker, whereas before they had to make a call to a person. That person had to secure coverage for the entire district at different levels. Sometimes that person was absent or unable to provide coverage.
