Pros: It is an excellent document enhancement and distribution solution. It integrates with Maps in the backend which is also very user friendly and it is a great plus if you are already using Argos and MAPS. It integrates with Banner. There is a learning curve but it isn't too bad.

Another plus is the Evisions Support site and staff. They are excellent in resolving the issues. They have a rich online library of resources. They have a co-op site where all the institutions can submit their ideas and proof of concept, the co-op site is pretty cool. Some of the ideas were as simple as plug and play kind of a deal. But many solutions have to be adjusted based on your institutions set up and processes.

It integrates with CAS/Single sign on.

Cons: There is a learning curve but it isn't too bad. The initial set up took a little time but once it was done there wasn't much of admin issues. We have it installed on in house servers and we have to maintain those. We have to install patches but that isn't too bad either.

Overall: Quick and easy document enhancement and distribution.

Pros: We have used this software since we moved to Banner in 2012 and would not function without it. We have several forms that utilize the flexibility of Formfusion. Anything that my administration has asked us to do related to Form output has been easily handle with this product. Again, I would not want to function without it.

Cons: I wish there was a way to pull Banner output from the GOROUTP table for testing instead of downloading and uploading a file. Minor point but it would be nice.

Overall: Easy and professional printed, emailed and stored form output.

Pros: Ease of use. Our users have no trouble navigating the screens and processes. As the IT Support Group, it is one of the areas we have to deal with the least.

Cons: I can't think of anything our users don't like about the application. The only issue may be with Form Design. It takes a little while to master the art of setting up and applying designs to the forms.

Pros: Ability to create a form/receipt out of textual data helps us to create professional looking forms for almost anything. Sopport channels are excellent and very helpful.

Cons: Printer setup is not clear when it comes to using Windows printers as opposed to Banner LP printers. If the alias is not exact the printer will go to the default printer.

FormFusion is an integral part of our business processes which increases our productivity.

Pros: The customer support is very professional with knowledge of Banner processes. They can troubleshoot which process has the problem and most of the time it is Banner.

Cons: I can't think of anything that I don't like about FormFusion. I use it every day and it works as needling.

Formfusion has great document enhancement features and ability to generate password protected pdfs

Pros: Features including generation of pdfs, that gives us ability to index into BDM. Additionally, ability to develop sql scripts allowed us to transition from banner letgen that has limited features in terms of programming sq. Also, the MAPs administration component is one of the simplest tool we have seen, it is not only easy to apply upgrades but also, clone or monitor activity.

Cons: Mapping the lis file in the PCL form sometimes is cumbersome. A GUI based mapping would help expedite design of templates.

FormFusion has been most helpful at tax time, letter generation, and BDMS document auto indexing.

Pros: Once its set up it performs well. Most of the forms do not need changing too often. I love that Evisions provides the tax forms every year, but changing the margins is not very easy with this software and almost always has to be changed.

Cons: Setup takes too much time and often the documentation does not provide enough assistance. It needs to be simplified for the end user to want to create more forms and use them, so that IT is not constantly involved.

Overall: Auto-generation of Admissions letters, BDMS document auto-indexing, and ease of tax form generation.

I'm a Sr Software Engineer and have used FormFusion for almost 20 years at multiple institutions.

Pros: The ability to easily customize and brand generic Banner output, and to easily deliver the output in a number of ways.

Cons: I wish that it was not tied quite so tightly to the output that comes from Banner (i.e. having to define blocks of data and to place the data on the new output in those blocks. I know there are workarounds to this but most require significant work.

Overall: The ability to easily customize, brand and deliver both Banner baseline and in-house written output.

I have had great experience with the helpline and getting projects completed.

Pros: It's easy to use and pretty intuitive. I appreciate having a test instance as well as a production environment for when we need to test new functions or upgrades.

Cons: I don't have a lot of cons for the software. It does what we need it to do without too many issues. Some times the map function can deal with a matter of millimeters, and that can be frustrating to test/resolve.

Noneventful. Changes with Evisions is easy

Pros: This software is really easy to integrate with existing Banner systems. Once integrated, it takes almost no time to get up and running. There is a wonderful community of users who share their reports and you can easily download and modify existing reports, or design your own. If you should ever have an issue, customer service is excellent. I would absolutely recommend this product!

Cons: We also own Argos by Evisions and I wish that the user interface was a little more similar, just for ease of transition.

Overall: Customization of output from Banner with a design that better suits our school and has more useful information.

Pros: automating processes is the best, we don't have to use our old way from the cron job generate text file anymore.

Cons: the only concern is some of the reports need to connect more than one database but limited to connect to more than one data source.

Overall: learning so much in automating for daily report

Overall: I can set up the form and let it run, do not have to babysit it.
