Pros: Easy of use, convenience, support experience

Cons: There's so much functionality it took me a little while to figure out, but turns out you can customize your menu so I've been able to hide items I don't use.

Overall: This is an amazingly flexible student information system. I've used other systems that are very rigid and frustrating, but with Academy-Connect I can specify required fields, setup defaults, use my own codes for virtually ANY page in the application. I was honestly blow away by this. The application is also completely mobile with support for multiple languages - no need to download and install a phone app that does just a tiny part. The whole website runs just as well on my phone or tablet as it does on my PC.

And there are hundreds of pre-built reports, a report generator, and an import/export utility that allows us to pull data any time we want to do something in Excel.

They will even migrate your existing data for free. I can't believe how much money we saved migrating from our other system, which was antiquated and costing us a fortune.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take a look at the free version first if you're unsure.
