Synergy Education Platform

Very slow, you literally have to click save for every transaction or it is lost. It should have an autosave feature.It should have automatic commands:E for excusedor a one-click solution for excusing student work

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.

Cons

Synergy Education Platform

  • Less downtime during the day.
  • Not logging out after a certain time of inactivity.
  • Online user-manuals for each school district.
Whitney Garnai, M. Ed. | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veracross

  • 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!

Alternatives Considered

Synergy Education Platform

Synergy is great at keeping all student data in one place.It is very inefficient for teachers entering grades.
Nichole Kellerman | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

  • 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.
