Very powerful program with fantastic support team that has implemented many of our requests as needed. Online portals improve our school communications and parents like the real-time directory and access to forms and student reports. Teachers love the portals for ease of writing reports online. From online inquiries to admissions tracking, development, attendance, reports, this program meets many of our needs.

Drawbacks:

Does not integrate with our billing system... we use Quickbooks. Hoping to see this in future updates.

Summary:

Improved school communications, saved money, improved information tracking for inquiries and student records, enabled online student reports input ... Read more

Having ability to share student reports, school directory and collect school forms through Parent Portal. Teachers having an easy access to the student reports they wrote in the past through Teacher's Portal. Writing student reports, curriculum summaries (descriptions), and being able to allow proofreaders a direct access to those reports is helping us simplify the whole process. Ability to send group email. Running reports on daily attendance, emergency contacts, health information. Customer service is very helpful. You can always count on a prompt, detailed and helpful answer from the customer service.

Drawbacks:

Not having formatting ability when writing student reports. Sending a group email is a cumbersome and lengthy process. Mailing labels (per househol... Read more

Once operations are learned the system works well

Benefits:

Lots of options for sorting and tracking families and students. We have found the attendance to be simple and easy to use.

Drawbacks:

Not intuitive, have to learn how to do everything from scratch. Each time we add a new user for any reason, it is a job to relearn the system. None... Read more

BigSIS is getting more useful as we learn how to use it. There is a significant learning curve.

I like that it can filter for different information, that parents can input information directly through the parent portal, that teachers can share student reports directly through the parent portal, and it's ability to track progress through contracting process. There is so much more that BigSIS can do that we have not been able to tap into. I am slowly learning how to use it and expanding my awareness of its possibilities. I wish someone knowledgeable could help customize it more for our needs as just a basic starting point. Perhaps I was just unaware of how much customizing would be necessary on our end. The webinars that we had at the beginning were helpful but premature. I think it's much more practical to have our own database in place before we learn how to use it. Learning something this complex in a hypothetical way is challenging. However, I appreciated all the time and training sessions that were offered. Perhaps there could be more follow-up.

Drawbacks:

BigSIS is not always intuitive. Some of the more important items, such as the help tutorials/checklists, are located in certain tables. There is a ... Read more

My favorite part of the platform is how basic it is - upload a list, set the fields accordingly, good to go. The quick message is the best part of this - and I appreciate that you all are focusing on updating it often to make it so easy to use.

Drawbacks:

I wish there was a better way to review scheduled texts (preview feature with real contact). I see that something is scheduled in my message calend... Read more

I like that I can text hundreds of students using my laptop rather than my phone. Students are more receptive to texts than to email so I love that I can use a more reliable form of communication.

Drawbacks:

There are several aspects to this program I found to be very frustrating. I have over 30,000 students in the program and to search one student take... Read more

Although there has been a great benefit in the opportunity to reach students via text. I would not recommend this program for the cost and the over... Read more
