OnBase by Hyland

Hyland Onbase is simple, effective, and just works for when it comes to content management systems. Many companies rely on static folder structures for storing information or Excel/Access tables which can easily become a mess whereas with Onbase every document is unique and access can be restricted/audited depending on user permissions. It allows for a company to easily take control of their information and be more productive.

PowerSchool Unified Classroom Special Programs

PowerSchool Special Education is well suited in one specific area: special education in elementary, middle and high schools. It works here due to the nature of the platform, which focuses on meeting the needs of students with all disabilities. The software offers information on specific cases, students, as well as Academics. This supports the mission of supporting all students and making it easier for educators, parents, and administration to be more heavily involved in tracking, monitoring and supporting students. When using PowerSchool Special Education, it simplifies the IEP process. Collaboration is one of the best abilities the software provides. There is a need to track program eligibility, including 501 accommodations and Title 1, and in a school with such a large population, the functionality that this software offers to users is important.

Pros

OnBase by Hyland

  • Tools to assist with configuration changes especially for Workflow processes.
  • Easy to query the database to pull reports on usage.
  • Support for a wide variety of files that can be stored within the product.
  • Great support channels for resolving application issues.

PowerSchool Unified Classroom Special Programs

  • It provides all the documents necessary for supporting federal and state laws in regards to the special education program.
  • Extremely effective in helping to meet reporting standards for students. Teachers that fall behind on deadlines or timelines are given reminders and provided with processes to monitor progress and reporting.
  • Case management is easy, which leads to 100% compliance. This is important because the best strength is that this platform helps to increase funding by meeting all requirements of the Fed and State.
  • An additional strength is the collaborative potential it offers. The platform offers student portals to let staff access all resources on demand.

Cons

OnBase by Hyland

  • Printing multiple drawings from a hit list.
  • We are currently working with our Value Added Reseller and Hyland to enable a print button that would allow us to print multiple drawings from a hit list. Our users might need entire sets of electrical one line diagrams or piping and instrument diagrams for plant operations or project work. The disabled option stems from the fact that some engineering drawings are created with external drawings (XRefs or external references) that are referenced inside a drawing. Because 99% of our drawings are simple drawings that do not use external references, the disable print button is a handicap. If not resolved in this issue, which is still our hope, Hyland is aware that the issue needs to be fixed in the future.

  • In terms of improvement, the interface is extremely ugly and simple in design, color and icon design. The platform needs to have a much more interactive and appealing interface so that use is more comfortable.
  • For parents, their side of the platform has a lot of options. That needs to be simplified. I think less and more drop downs within the key menus would help.
  • The disability codes are very lengthy. Perhaps there are easier or faster ways to access subsections to select.

Adoption and usability of OnBase have gone extremely well for us due to the system's ability to integrate with nearly any other system your organization uses. In addition to ease-of-use of Hyland's Unity and Web clients, modules like Application Enabler allow us to read information from any app in order to serve-up OnBase content to the end-user

In my experience with the customer support of OnBase, the issues that have been submitted were all addressed and fixed in a timely manner. There are also several ways to submit a ticket such as creating one online or calling the phone number provided on their site. An account manager, success advisor, and support team are all assigned to helping you with any questions or issues that arise and phone numbers and email addresses for each of those areas are provided as well.

Alternatives Considered

OnBase by Hyland

We switched off of Perceptive Content because their support was absolutely horrendous and the company just completely stopped innovating. Their platform didn't provide the ability to integrate like OnBase does today. There are no limits to what we can achieve within OnBase. whereas we were very limited in what could be automated within Perceptive.
DocFinity (Evaluated)
We evaluated DocFinity at the same time as OnBase. They had similar capabilities in terms of integrations but severely lacked the infrastructure and team to implement it well. We were overwhelmed with their lack of knowledge around their system and their inability to listen to their customers.

PowerSchool Unified Classroom Special Programs

There is no other software on the market that is specifically focused on improving the support of special education programs. PowerSchool Special Education system has a similar interface and structure that Moodle Rooms offer; however, Moodle Rooms is for content management and student management. PowerSchool Special Education is not related to course curriculum management, it is primarily focused on special education programs. Managing special education programs can be very difficult and stressful. It is impossible to successfully comply and healthily support a special education program without tools such as PowerSchool Special Education. Even more important than what other software does do for schools and educators, this platform makes it more convenient for families. Electronic forms and parent portals make processes easier.

Return on Investment

OnBase by Hyland

  • We have saved time and money by eliminating our paper form process that had to be faxed, scanned or hand-delivered to each approver.
  • We streamlined a workflow that used to be handled separately by 4 departments under the same OnBase umbrella.
  • Our end-users appreciate being able to submit requests on the web instead of using a paper form or PDF.

  • There is also a positive impact on ROI for the school. Utilizing this software provides the school with the ability to increase the potential it receives in Title 1 funding. Title 1 funding is a major source of funding for inner-city schools in particular.
  • Normally, the IEP and tracking process is lengthy, filled with paper, and often takes more time than necessary. Utilizing this software speeds up the process and provides clear requirements to be met, which reduces the number of questions and confusing meetings or papers left in teacher mailboxes.
  • I have not experienced a negative return on investment with the software, because, without it, the paper trail would be too lengthy and the process would be much more convoluted, with long meetings, long sheets of paperwork, and missed deadlines due to a lack of clear collaboration.
