Overall Satisfaction with ETO by Social Solutions

The Early Learning Coalition of Manatee County uses ETO to track all of our programs funded by the local and state government. Our coalition is responsible for overseeing the School Readiness and Voluntary Prekindergarten programs in Manatee County. We use additional programs to support our childcare providers and income-eligible families and track this information in ETO with the end goal of being able to determine if the services we provide move the needle on school readiness at kindergarten entry.
  • ETO is easy to navigate by site or by program
  • Setting up programs and creating touch points is relatively easy
  • The ability to email our clients through ETO would be beneficial
  • Batch uploads don't always function properly
  • The Social Solutions training academy for site administrators and report writers needs some work.
  • ETO allows staff to input information directly into the system while out in the field, saving data entry time.
  • ETO allows for batch uploads of data and the ability to download information for reporting purposes.
The ELC is using ETO to determine whether programs offered to children work - five are helping to move the needle on school readiness at kindergarten entry. By tracking outcomes of overlay programs, we are able to determine if we need to re-evaluate the programs that we use to gain greater outcomes or if the programs we use are working well enough to request additional funding.
The ELC is still in the early stages of gathering information on our programs and have not used the data for additional funding at this time.
ETO had the flexibility we were looking for.
ETO is well suited for tracking outcomes for funder requirements.
