Overall Satisfaction with EMS Software

We use it for event and classroom scheduling. It is being used by our three campuses. It is helping us to evaluate and review the efficiency of how our meeting space and classrooms are used. We are also hoping that, through the use of the Optimizing feature, that we will be able to schedule our courses more effectively.

Pros

  • There is a central location to reserve rooms. No more having to track down an admin to inquire as to the availability of the space.
  • The EMS Master Calendar feature also provides a central location for our Academic, Alumni, Student Activities, and Community calendars. We are hoping to reduce the number of calendars that are produced--I personally produce or maintain 5 different calendars.
  • It has saved time in our day by utilizing the EMS scheduling application.
  • The Optimization option will allow the schedulers to set up preferences for classroom choices.

Cons

  • Provide additional local/regional training. Once a year is not enough!
  • I am unable to answer this question, other than it is saving time for many staff and faculty members. Time = $$
I came in after the product was purchased so I am unable to answer this question.
I've been happy with the product for reasons that I have previously mentioned.
My experience is that it has worked very well with our SIS.
Our campus and facilities are used for many community events, and EMS has provided an optimal way to reserve our space for those events.
And as I mentioned previously, to have a central place to request a space has been a time saver for many staff and faculty members.
It has been a challenge to get everyone "on board" as we have some folks that have been working on campus for 20 plus years and they like the way things are being done. Change has been difficult for them. We're working on them though!
