Facts about using FACTS in Admissions
Overall Satisfaction with FACTS Student Information System (formerly RenWeb)
We use FACTS across our organization. Our teachers use it for attendance, grade book tasks, database access, and communication. In the office, we use it for admissions, medical records (nurse staff), billing, donors, alumni, scheduling, hot lunch management, student and parent demographic and contact information, and communication. The business problem FACTS addresses for us is the ability to have all student and family information accessible to all members of our organization. The integration of the different functions ensures that the information accessed is always current.
- Admissions tracking is possible from initial inquiry all the way to enrollment
- ParentsWeb enables parents to access school information easily from a desktop or phone app
- FACTS customer service is outstanding. It is easy to either call or chat, and questions are researched and answered fully.
- It would be helpful to have all student demographic information on one screen as it was in a previous version. The new version is quite a learning curve, but there is support available which is consistently helpful.
- Online Application - we have families from overseas and out of state who apply to our school, and having the process completely online makes it easy for them and for us to get accurate information in a timely manner.
- Create-A-Report - this feature helps me write my Board reports and provide real-time data for them to use in their decision-making.
- Retention is a goal of every school, and FACTS helps us communicate effectively with our current parents, providing them information and encouraging that partnership with them.
