Pros: What I like most honestly is the incredibly excellent customer service. Also, it reduces the amount of admin work in our small school office.

Cons: Often there are problems like students have to file multiple tuition agreements. Also, it's not possible to go back and change things in an in-progress application.

Overall: Streamlines office operations at a small organization.

Pros: I enjoy the feature that allows you to view the overall enrollment statistics at a quick glance and the ease of accepting new students.

Cons: There is no way to link the data we receive from families who are inquiring to data received from new families who are applying.

We have used TADS for the last 5 years and they are always very friendly and helpful.

Pros: The best part of TADS is the ability to see all the accounts and react early when a family starts to get behind.

Cons: I feel it did take a good 2 years of using the software to get comfortable and be able to find the information that I need.

TADS is just what we needed in a tuition management program.

Pros: It saves a huge amount of time for our accountant. It also allows parents to review their tuition accounts whenever they wish. We are able to customize it for parents however it is needed for them.

Cons: There are some reports that I would like at my fingertips that are not readily available. I can usually get the information I need, however.

TADS has been amazing! Educational support is superb!

Pros: We have just started using TADS in May 2017. The ease of transferring our students to TADS from RenWeb went smoothly. Getting the word out to our parents to encourage them to go into TADS and setup information was very well explained.

Cons: Not being able to post payments mailed to CLA when a parent has not completed their agreement in TADS.

Have called support and response is pretty good.

Pros: Helping get the tuition paid on time with families has been a great help with this program. Billing is done and a reminder to parents is great. Records kept up to date with the software instead of me or the office keeping the accounts.

Cons: Not being able to open up all parts of the software sometimes have to get your company to enable it.

Thank you-from STM

Comments: I love using TADS to serve our families-putting everything in one place makes life easier for all of us. The customer service is outstanding-I always get a complete answer-to even the silliest questions. Ian Sharer and Jason Brune have been my Super heros this year.

Love how organized TADS keeps our schools enrollment process

Cons: The fact that TADS can not migrate certain data from one part of TADS to another. Example: when families apply for admission to our school and apply for Financial Aid, the "Grades" in these two area do not match up. We are a Pre-school. The "Grades" on the FA application are Pre-k - 12th. These do not line up with our population. The "Grades" in the admissions application are based on schedule choices and age. Since the Tuition costs in the TADS Financial Aids area are pulled automatically from the FA application and not the admissions application the Tuition is cost is always incorrect and thus the awards suggested are also always incorrect. How we deal with this is to manually enter all the Tuition rate data by hand, by looking at each family's Admissions application to see which schedule they chose and what age their child is.

Overall: We use TADS for admissions, enrollment and tuition assistance management. There are a few things I wish could be more connected between the separate parts of TADS, but overall it is an amazing management tool which keeps the different aspects of enrollment and financial aid organized and accessible. We love all it's reporting capabilities and the TADS staff are all incredibly responsive and helpful. We love working with them and having them be an off site part of our Admin team.

Best Service for your Buck!!

Pros: The software is extremely easy to maneuver, as I am not anywhere near a computer/software genius. It is very user friendly, and it just makes sense.

Cons: I have no software concerns for our TADS software.

Overall: I cannot say enough GREAT things about TADS! From the minute that we decided to use them as our third party tuition management system, they have been at our side 100%. The customer service that TADS provides on ALL aspects of tuition management is AMAZING. As an administrator, they are very attentive and helpful. I have always been treated with respect, even when I have basic questions. From the parent perspective, I have always heard fantastic feedback about the professionalism from the parent portal customer service staff, as well as, general empathy for our parents who struggle with tuition payments. The website is easy to maneuver from the administrator side, as well as, from the parent side. Our school has a very diverse population, so having customer service staff members who are bilingual has been a huge help in communicating with our parents and families. I cannot say enough good things about TADS, and are completely satisfied with all aspects of our relationship with them!

Recommendations to other buyers: No, we are perfectly satisfied with the software that we use!

TADS Tuition Management is an EXCELLENT tool !

Comments: We have been using TADS For about 5 years now. It has made all aspects of dealing with tuition management much easier from billing to reporting. Our families like the ease of use, control of their accounts and automatic payments too. Highly recommend.
