Pros: As a tech, I was able to find my way around with minimal training. They offered it but my job is the helpdesk tech for the entire district of 4500 employees so I am not always able to attend meetings and trainings. I was able to find answers I needed quickly and easily using K-12 Online's knowledge base and their excellent customer support.

Cons: The only con that I have is one that is going away with the summer release. For now, I'm going to say no real cons.

Overall: Our district began the bid process and heard from four different vendors. K-12 Online was by far the best presentation we saw. They had gone to a great deal of trouble to customize our presentation to show us what they had to offer.

That was the first sign of their dedication to their customers and it has been the same ever since. I'm glad that I was on the team that picked their software and if I had to do it all over again I would make the same call every time. K-12 Online has bent over backward to help us during the first year of online registration and there is no sign that the level of customer support we have received will change anytime soon.

Take the leap with K-12 Online. I promise you'll be glad you did.

Recommendations to other buyers: Train your end users so they understand how to use the software and train it geared toward the least techy person you have. Communicate with all the stakeholders including the parents. K-12 will do everything they can to help, but nothing will help you if the people using the program aren't informed.

K12 Online is a modern application and easy to navigate through.

Pros: The software is easy to navigate. Working in sections seems to be most beneficial such as getting the forms ready, then the webstores and then customizing the portals.

Cons: The webstore items currently live in one long list. It would be nice if the items could be stored in possible folders according to schools or separate categories. I would also prefer if items could be ordered and moved around. Setting up the attributes to an item for sale is cumbersome and time consuming.

Overall: It is definitely an advantage for parents to register their children online and pay for school items at the same time. It also eliminates a lot of paper in the school offices and makes pulling reports super convenient!

A revolutionary way to do back-to-school registration

Pros: JIREHinfosystems has revolutionized the way we do registration. Using this systems our school saves thousands of dollars in mailing, paper and printing costs. In addition, our clerks have saved countless hours in sorting, data retrieval, data entry, medical information, and verification of information. Even with the economy in a downturn, our fundraising numbers have increased. Most importantly, the registration process has been overwhelmingly popular with our parents, who no longer dread the registration packet of papers that they used to sift through, and spend hours filling out the same information over and over again. It is time schools incorporated this new technology to make the start of school an enjoyable and efficient experience for all.

Cons: Automatic integration with SIS not available yet.

Overall: It is time schools incorporated this new technology to make the start of school an enjoyable and efficient experience for all.

Addressing you concern: Automatic integration with SIS does exist now! However, districts were not comfortable with complete automation so a proces had to be developed that would be agreeable to IT. Basically, it depends on your IT department how much automation is allowed. Our system will accept data and make updated data available to your SIS. Districts frown upon data being "pushed" into their system automatically. So, it is up to the district's IT dept. to program a script that will access our database. The updated data on our database will only be available when a data clerk at the school approves the updated student information and emergency contact data to be sent to the SIS.

Excellent program!

Pros: How easy it is to use as well as how easy it is to get help with the program when I need it. My client service representative always has an answer and I never have to wait long for his response. This program has saved me so much time and I cannot say enough good things about it.

Cons: There is no way to see whether emails were or were not received, however, when I brought this up, the developers were asked to look into creating something like that. That is why I love this program! They really try to make it as user friendly as possible.

Overall: A streamlined registration process that saves time and energy.

Pros: Ease of moving the registration over from one year to the next.

Cons: Can't change dates. We are having a few issues with custom fields going in but it is something we need to do on our end.

Overall: K-12 has been great for us for registration. The staff has been very helpful when needed. The only thing I wish we could change is that when entering a new student during the school year that the "entry date" would come into PowerSchool, not the "school entry date"

Recommendations to other buyers: Someone else in a district will have to be trained and it would be great if there were more "Amanda" training's that they could attend.

Customer Support

Pros: The detail that can be pulled out from the program is outstanding.

The importance of taking money collection out of the teacher's hands is crucial.

The ease for parents is outstanding.

Cons: The set-up and implementation support needs to be more on-site.

Steps for reports and other features is great for tech people but could be more user friendly.

Overall: The overall effect of the program is great however it seems to be in it's infancy stage and may frustrate some individuals.

Vendor Response

by K-12 Online on January 28, 2011

Addressing your concerns: Set-up and implementation does not require on-site presence since this is an online program.

Besides a revamped, more user-friendly "HELP" link for less technical people with step-by-step instructions including screenshots, we are now providing online webinars for instruction which we encourage ALL possible K-12 Online users to attend. This allows users to take full advantage of all the features available.

Pros: The quickest way that we found to streamline the application process. It made life so much easier in the summer months and in the fall. Customer service was great to work with and the cost per year works for us.

Cons: Overall, it was a great experience and a joy to work with. Customer service was great and we didn't have any issues with it.

Overall: Awesome product and service!

Comments: I was so excited to finally get online registration. I worked very closely with K-12 and they were very helpful. I did the re-enrollment and my co-worker did the new enrollment. The only challenge we had was trying to integrate K-12 into INOW. The previous registrar and I thought they merged a lot better than it did. Also the new registrar had to pick up where the old registrar left off and she did not like it at all especially when we it was time merge the two.

Comments: I'm an admissions director for a small private school. We are just rolling out this software to our parents so not sure how that will go, but we anticipate that things should go relatively smoothly. We have a had a great customer service rep who has been quick at answering questions and working with my schedule on training. The more I use the software the more familiar I am with it and see all the capabilities it has. Looking forward to rolling it out.
