Score 6 out of 10
We use inRESONANCE as the database system to hold all of our scholars. It tracks all pertinent information including initial recruitment applications, academic review and all contact information for each scholar. It addresses the problem of having a database that is streamlined, consistent, and can be used by every phase of our organization in the same way.
- User levels where only certain individuals are able to do specific task. You don't have everyone making changes to fit their needs. Keeps things consistent.
- The ability to build custom lists. We are able to make the list as specific as we need them to be for our particular organization.
- The ability to send individual HTML formatted email messages to a specific set of individuals is helpful for the difference phases of our program. Each is able to communicate with their specific phase alone.
- There are a lot of terms used for different information in the database. It would be nice if that could be streamlined somehow and more intuitive for the users.
- There are a lot of details to go through to make custom list or create reports. If you don't do these processes regularly, it seems you are always relearning the process.
- There was a point when data changes needed to be done in two different places, but I think we may have resolved that issue.

Well suited to having the ability to import information when there are large numbers of scholars to be updated, such as graduations or moving up a grade. On the other hand, the program is geared towards a school and we are not a school so we had to do a lot of tweaking for our purposes.
