Pros: Has all the information needed in one place instead of different websites or programs. Ease of use.

Cons: At times it can have issues or problems when saving things or when sending out emails and it completely swipes everything out.

Pros: Love everything about this program! Can't wait for it to have money/ business portion added so we can get rid of our other system. Wish it also seperated divorced parents better.

Overall: We are able to maintain our database and not have program errors like our previous program.
Worst part is we didn't get this program years ago, but now that we have it, it's great. Can't wait for you to add a money component.

Pros: It's easy to pull necessary data - and it's easy to navigate the system.

Cons: I wish that we could manipulate the reports as an end user - so that the data could appear in various formats. Also - I'd like to see a reverse look-up of telephone numbers & email addresses. Lastly - the system opens an additional window when account information is viewed from a student's information page. I don't feel that the info should be displayed in new tabs....

Overall: I have found Parent Locker to be a very useful tool! It is easy to use.... It's set up logically - and one can navigate through the system with minimal training. In addition, I've found the customer support to be excellent. It's refreshing to have a vendor spend time on a phone call - to truly understand the issue/request for system changes. I was very pleased with the quick turn-around time, too - and the follow up. Our system changes were made the same day - and we received an email to ensure that we were satisfied with those changes - and that nothing more was needed. Working with Parent Locker has been a positive experience & I would recommend the system.

Pros: Ease of Use. User friendly. Many aspects are self explanatory.

Cons: No cons really. It works for us. Would just love a user manual for the office staff to use.

Overall: The ease of use, and user friendly approach for both parents and teachers makes it an ideal program for any school. Parent Locker is constantly striving to improve on what is already an amazing program and they listen to our feedback. Customer support is great. I deal with Daniel and he is a genius. He is there to help and no question is considered "silly". They want you to learn the program and it is there pleasure to answer your concerns. Generating reports is easy and sending emails is a cinch. If you try this program I know you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Please see previous comments

Overall: We have been utilizing ParentLocker for a number of years for Teacher-Parent communications, report cards, Parent-Teacher conferences, lesson plans and homework communications. We have had a positive experience with the program and find it easy to use. It is accessible to parents, teachers and administrators alike. The tutorials that ParentLocker provides are simple and user friendly and the updates are always timely. Occasionally there are questions or features of the program that are unfamiliar. For these items, it would be helpful to have a help feature that could give an overview of how to use it. However, when we seek support, the ParentLocker team is quick to respond. Overall we find this program useful and compatible with our needs and recommend it for use by other schools.

Pros: Easy to use. Support is great, knowledgeable and very helpful.

Cons: Certain administrative tasks need to be carried out on their side. I feel guilty about contacting them for something simple that I feel that I can do, but they do not mind doing whatever the task is. Maybe lack of more administrative features?

Overall: ParentLocker has been such a big success at our school. It is very easy to manage the system, and any support that is needed is quickly provided. While we do not take advantage of all the many features that ParentLocker has to offer, it provides our staff with a neat, clean and organized workspace and an easy hub for communication between different parties.

Another fantastic feature is the ability to submit suggestions. They truly take every suggestion into consideration and are true to their word when they say they will try and create something for you. There have been a couple of times where we asked if something could be added to our page and within several days they create what you need. ParentLocker and the support team have been a valuable asset to our school.

Recommendations to other buyers: Daniel is our contact person and he is fantastic. He is very quick to respond and helps in a very timely fashion. I cannot praise him enough!

Pros: I like how when I search for a parent or a child all their info is right there with one click of a button. All the child's info parents info, etc. its easy to edit and to use. Its self-explanatory also which helps a lot if I ever needed editing.

Cons: one thing I would like to change is the labels. I would like to have access and be able to open the labels from Parent Locker into a word document and be able to modify the labels if needed in terms of its font and size.

Overall: Parent Locker is very easy to use. I love how I can access parent info with a click of a button, how easy it is to change info around to make it more accommodating for admin users. I also appreciate and love how customer service is so nice and quick to fix minor issues and in answering all my questions!

Comments: It took me a little while at the beginning to figure out where things were located- how to find the report card, how to find the partent teacher conference schedule. It is not so clear. BUt now that I know, the rest of it runs smoothly. THe sign up for partent teacher conference is MUCH MUCH better than the system at my other children's schools. A pleasure! I don't have to go searching separately for who my childs teachers are, I din't jhave to keep looking to see if Ialready signed up for a particular teacher (when you have only one kid in a school its not a big deal, but with multiple kids it can get confusing quickly)
I typed 5 for customer service, because it insisted I put in an anser and does notgive not applicable as an possibility. But in truth I haven't used the customer service, so its annoying that you make me answer. Put in a not applicable button!

The customer support is outstanding, and response turn around time is lightning fast. Since we began using the system, our staff has been more communicative with our parent body. Both school and home are happy. This can't be said of many school management programs out there. Believe me, I have tried many!
