Not very user friendly and when told the system will do something, it actually will not.

Pros: It is hard to say because we have had issues with getting the system to do what we need it to, but I do like that it will create a positive pay file for manual checks.

Cons: It won't do some of the basic things for financials that I as an accounts payable person feel that the system should do.

I work with one module for the software and they have a great network for help.

Pros: Very functional and customizable to your school. We get the opportunity to let the company know what we want in the software and they usually update to meet the various schools needs. Very aware of all federal guidelines and requirements.

Cons: Training for use of the module or processes would be nice when something new is implemented. Several screens and options are usually available with short descriptions.

Overall: The Ellucian software is very helpful in keeping our school on track and making it easier for the student to navigate Admissions to registration to financial aid to graduation.

I am a power user for this software in multiple formats and have been using it in various ways.

Pros: I like that this software maintains procedures in regards to federal regulations. I also appreciate the effort put forth to aid in student ease and success.

Cons: The cost can be expensive as to have the software function at its full capacity for the benefit of users you must purchase all the additional add ons.

It provides the system I need to organize my work.

Pros: It is comprehensive. It provides the ability to digitally organize any information we could possibly need.

Cons: It is not intuitive. It is requires several weeks of use to fully understand it's capability, and if you need to figure out how to do a particular function, it can be almost impossible to figure it out unless there is someone to tell you.

The Colleague Self-Service offerings are causing excitement with our students.

Pros: The Colleague Self-Service Faculty view offers rosters, midterm and final grade entry. Our faculty are so impressed with this new functionality they would fight to keep from losing it.

Cons: Ellucian is difficult to get to respond to issues. I have been working with the Ellucian Cloud testing and it has taken months to accomplish what should have taken days.

Overall: It is our school ERP.

Great Program, has everything I need to get my job done.

Pros: I like the search capability and ease to look up any entity. I also like the ability to have all the information on an entity in one place.

Cons: Sometimes there is a lot of duplicate information, I wish there was a way to minimize that or to catch it before some information gets entered twice.

Overall: Ability to store a lot of information

Great software!!! Easy to use and always updating?

Pros: the support for Ellucian is awesome. It took a while to learn how to use Colleague but once I learned my area, it was very useful.

Cons: it's not intuitive. I wish there was a training that new employees could go to in their area to learn about the Colleague product to help understand how the change I make affects others.

Awesome for studying

Pros: offers multiple products gives great support

Cons: Cost: is more costly than some of its competitors
Deployment of newer products to end users could be smoother

Overall: As for an ERP it works they continually develop products that do well but then should have been tested or better yet more thought should have been thought through before deploying to customers.

Recommendations to other buyers: Company does have good products and has been around a while but it feels like there is constant change over within the company.

Pros: Mobile friendly self service
Integration through Ellucian XE
Active user community on Ellucian's eCommunities social media platform

Cons: Reporting. Expect to spend money on a reporting tool.

Overall: Colleague is an overall great product. Ellucian has been working hard to improve Colleague's features and functionality, especially on the Self-Service platform. This work has kept them at the front edge of innovation with responsive design that allows your constituents serve themselves from any device. This takes pressure off of administrative staff so they can focus on quality support to your students.

Ellucian does a good job at being connected to their customers and understanding the constantly changing needs in the academic world. They hold focus groups, beta testing groups to allow the engaged community of customers to provide input, and it shows in the quality of the newer products they have created.
