Benefits:

School Mint Was an easy and effective way to transition our student registration and documentation process to an online format.

Drawbacks:

Depending on parent education level and flexibility. Some found it tedious to upload the required documents for school registration. They needed a mind shift and the necessary tools on their electronic devices. Parent reports that there were a lot of pages to navigate through.

In sum:

We are reducing paper usage thereby helping the environment. We are cutting down time parents spend in the school office waiting to register their students. It provides ease and convenience for busy parents.

«Support lacking»

Overall rating

Benefits:

We purchased this software to help us automate enrollment and our lottery process.

Drawbacks:

Initial training was offered, but when that person left the organization, follow up training has been below expectations. School Mint's idea of training or support is to send a tutorial link that's an hour long when you only need 5 min. of the video. I spend more time trying to figure out my own solutions rather than getting actual support. Charter schools usually have a great deal of turn over in the first few years. They need to learn more about the people they work with and provide support so the product is actually useful.

In sum:

I do think this could be a good product, but the support is usually only offered a few days after I submit a ticket. I was also told that I would not be able to get my re-enrollment online for another 2 months because I missed a deadline (while I was waiting on support)! Hopefully others have a better experience. Maybe it's just the people assigned to my school.

Benefits:

The software is intuitive and well-organized. Our district intakes 1700 applications from 2000 students. Even in our first year using it, there were no hiccups. Most important, the customer service is second-to-none. Requests are recognized immediately and addressed in a timely manner. The level of customization is terrific. This system does everything we need it to. I cannot recommend it enough.

Drawbacks:

I really can't say anything negative - we are truly pleased with all aspects of the SmartChoice platform.

In sum:

We can manage 2000 students' applications with ease and in a timely manner.

Benefits:

The organization of information and presentation is simple. It lends to being great for getting away from paperwork. Parents can interact with both the website or the application. If kids are going to multiple schools registration and acceptance are easily accessed and clear.

Drawbacks:

Attempting to update information has to be done per individual in the household with no option for everyone to update at the same time. Also, updating the students information does not mean the school gets that information appropriately. Customer service is not friendly and very automated.

In sum:

Clear registration to schools, simple organization for school paperwork, and multiple kids listed in one place.

Benefits:

The best part of the software is being able to customize it. It has also been a great tool to collaborate many organizations into one.

Drawbacks:

Parts of the back end are not user friendly or understandable to everyday individuals. I've been able to tweak things by having an understanding of technology.

Benefits:

Great way to keep track of applications, important documents, dates and contact to get in touch with school on the web.

Drawbacks:

Doesn't remove the need to call and discuss needs with a person at the schools. Needs a live chat option or direct calling option through the application.

Benefits:

The ability to easily customize the lottery application and registration forms. You don't even really need the training support to figure it out.

Drawbacks:

I would like to be able to run more reports with customized features. For example, we poll our families about aftercare needs on the registration form. I would like to be able to see the responses ordered, etc.

Benefits:

We introduced this system this year to our school district. It is very user friendly. The Smart Choice team did a great job of customizing the system to fit the needs of our district.

Drawbacks:

I honestly like all the aspects of the software. If there was an area that I thought could be improved, the Smart Choice team did a great job of customizing the system to include the suggested improvement.

In sum:

Their customer service has been great! Their team works hard to customize their system to fit your needs. I have truly enjoyed working with our Senior Account Manager. She has been such a huge help and resource in learning and navigating the system.

Overall rating

Benefits:

My favorite feature of Smart Choice is the parent portal. This feature allows me to have an excellent understanding and overall view of the parent experience, as well as insight to help parents troubleshoot any issues they are experiencing. The software is highly-customize-able, which works for our organization. There hasn't been any system upgrades we have requested that they are not able to do. I like that we have one contact for support. I am willing to sacrifice a support line for our one contact of support because she has a comprehensive understanding of how we use the software and is always able to follow along quickly with our issues and requests.

Drawbacks:

The most difficult part of Smart Choice is filtering the data and building reports. The reporting feature only allows for "and" filters. It would be nice to have the option of "or" filters. I wish Smart Choice, on the back-end, had a more updated look-and-feel. It kind of feels like I am in my high school portal from 10 years ago. I also found it difficult to figure out how to create field dependencies when creating form steps. Once you understand how it works, you can replicate the steps, however, it is not intuitive at first and there was a lot of trial and error.
