Value for Money

Pros: I love that it is completely web-based. No desktop apps to install or VPN connections to manage. You just need a web browser. You don't need to be a web developer to create functional online forms for admissions, registration, and any other process you need to take online. Very advanced reporting tools that allow you to report on any piece of data, in any combination. Integration with online payment gateways. Feature-rich finance module allows you to track tuition invoices and payments, and allows your accounting people to produce complicated reports for their specialized needs using the powerful data mining tools. The support people are always very helpful and will quickly escalate your technical queries when needed.

Cons: A system that is so flexible and full of features takes time learn. But if you take the time to read the documentation and spend time with your account rep and their support team, and implement the system correctly, you will have happy staff and customers.

PCR Educator provides an excellent tool for scheduling, and responsive customer service.

Pros: PCR Campus is an intuitive tool that provides a lot of flexibility. We primarily use the Scheduling module in the Campus portal, and our advisors use the Advisor portal for student course selections. PCR has been extremely responsive to our needs and has provided some very helpful customization. The Multi Action tool makes it easy to update several records with just a few clicks. The Data Mining Tool allows us to pull information in a variety of useful ways. Our support contact has been patient and helpful with both general training and in problem solving some of our unique challenges. I appreciate that PCR Educator continually seeks to improve the Campus product, including adding features such as more flexible gender identification.

Cons: We occasionally bump up against some constraints based on the complexities of our own course offerings, but our support person works with us to find efficient, if not always optimal, solutions.

Comments: It was a lot to go over in just 4 training sessions. There were some discrepancies in how Gilman uses the software versus how the trainer used the software.

With that said, Dina was patient, kind and respectful. She began with basics as well as answered specific questions. She allowed us to critically think on how we would use a specific area without telling us what we should be doing.

I do think we can use PCR in a more efficient way as I work more closely with it. I am excited to see how it will benefit my office.

Comments: The sessions were well paced with plenty of time for questions. She knows PCR!
Dina did not hesitate to go over things several times.
Because she has used PCR in a school setting she was able to provide suggestions to help us here at Gilman.
Her email and phone support have been extremely helpful. She worked with me Monday, after emailing her on Sunday that all Allison Conner's Reports were gone. She was able to recover years of work. She is an asset to PCR and I look forward to working with her.

Comments: We were Dina's first training session and she was excellent. We had a variety of PCR comfort levels in the room from very beginners to more experience and she did an excellent job adjusting the pacing to make sure that everyone was both keeping up and having their questions answered.

Dina's school experience was also a huge asset as we talked about setting up naming conventions and protocol in our own system.

Comments: The customer rep was absolutely fantastic. We covered many topics with many of the folks who will be using PCR and everyone felt the training was right "on target".

We would love to have her come back later in the fall to do some training with the back end of the Teacher Portal.

Awesome!
