Overall rating

Benefits:

The ability to easily customize and brand generic Banner output, and to easily deliver the output in a number of ways.

Drawbacks:

I wish that it was not tied quite so tightly to the output that comes from Banner (i.e. having to define blocks of data and to place the data on the new output in those blocks. I know there are workarounds to this but most require significant work.

In sum:

The ability to easily customize, brand and deliver both Banner baseline and in-house written output.

Benefits:

Ability to create a form/receipt out of textual data helps us to create professional looking forms for almost anything. Sopport channels are excellent and very helpful.

Drawbacks:

Printer setup is not clear when it comes to using Windows printers as opposed to Banner LP printers. If the alias is not exact the printer will go to the default printer.

Benefits:

The customer support is very professional with knowledge of Banner processes. They can troubleshoot which process has the problem and most of the time it is Banner.

Drawbacks:

I can't think of anything that I don't like about FormFusion. I use it every day and it works as needling.

Overall rating

Benefits:

This software is really easy to integrate with existing Banner systems. Once integrated, it takes almost no time to get up and running. There is a wonderful community of users who share their reports and you can easily download and modify existing reports, or design your own. If you should ever have an issue, customer service is excellent. I would absolutely recommend this product!

Drawbacks:

We also own Argos by Evisions and I wish that the user interface was a little more similar, just for ease of transition.

In sum:

Customization of output from Banner with a design that better suits our school and has more useful information.

Benefits:

We have been using formfusion for approx. 15 years. It was an easy implementation and updates/patches are a breeze to put in. We have 13 institutions in our system, I can replicate templates very quickly and brand each one separately, which my customers love. eVisions and the customer base share new templates frequently that can be downloaded and changed so that you do not always have to start with a blank screen. eVisions supplies the yearly Tax templates with instructions on use every year, so there is no guess work involved. I love the drag and drop style and the ease of customization that is allowed with every new template you want to create. Their customer service is one of the best services I have ever used, they not only get back to with hours, but are willing to have webex meetings to help you solve issues, not like some other companies that only exchange many emails.

Drawbacks:

My biggest pain point with the software is the when our ERP system does an upgrade to shell script that runs the jobs, it is up to the customer to edit that script. evisions is partnered with the erp system, there should be a meeting of the minds and include the needed code into the update shell script so that customers do not need to play with delivered code.

In sum:

I was able to create one template for printing transcripts, then able to customize it 13 times for branding, signatures and paper stock, thus reducing the cost of stylized paper. For our payroll department, I created a leave earned/taken sheet that covers all of our leave types so that the data imputer has all the information needed for each person.

Benefits:

Ease of use. Our users have no trouble navigating the screens and processes. As the IT Support Group, it is one of the areas we have to deal with the least.

Drawbacks:

I can't think of anything our users don't like about the application. The only issue may be with Form Design. It takes a little while to master the art of setting up and applying designs to the forms.

Overall rating

Benefits:

Features including generation of pdfs, that gives us ability to index into BDM. Additionally, ability to develop sql scripts allowed us to transition from banner letgen that has limited features in terms of programming sq. Also, the MAPs administration component is one of the simplest tool we have seen, it is not only easy to apply upgrades but also, clone or monitor activity.

Drawbacks:

Mapping the lis file in the PCL form sometimes is cumbersome. A GUI based mapping would help expedite design of templates.
