Maestro has allowed us to go from multiple inefficient systems to one central system.

Pros: When we didn't have Maestro we had duplicated data entry, scattered data, and an inefficient course enrollment process across three LMSs. Now, we can quickly scale our organization to meet our needs and all staff members have access to the most up-to-date student information. The entire staff has been responsive to every request and willing to handle requests on short notice to get us out of jams (that they didn't cause).

Cons: We just got through our first day of school with Maestro and nothing was "brought to light" by our student population so I have nothing to add here.

Overall: Maestro has allowed us to streamline nearly every process we currently do. In years past we had to work in a chain where one person had to do something before the next task could be started. Now, everyone can work at the same time to quickly process student applications and enrollments. Maestro has also allowed us to add a layer of accountability so we can ensure every student is working at an acceptable pace and staff members are responsive to student requests.

We appreciate the kind words, Michael. It's great working with you! Please let us know what areas we can make more user-friendly, so we can earn 5 stars for that as well when we roll out the new UI, which is on our current roadmap. Our users are our best source for how we can continue improving Maestro.

A product you should check out!

Comments: Maestro is very feature rich, and can accommodate the scheduling and assessment of essentially any type of learning environment. There are components of it that are cumbersome to use, but a lot of that seems due to how versatile and flexible it is.

Great service and support.

Pros: Custom report development, pacing at a glance, and the ability to login as other users.

Cons: User interface is a bit dated. Accessibility can be improved to ensure compliance.

Overall: The move to Maestro was a huge undertaking with a very tight window for the migration. The Bocavox team was very attentive and worked hard to ensure our various business models were able to be implemented with as few hiccups as possible. Our schools were very impressed with the new workflow and we have really appreciated the extra data available with our new system.

Thanks to the team at Bocavox for a great product with even better support. We look forward to the new features coming out in the planned product updates that will provide our students more flexibility and the ability to provide more custom branding!

Thank you Bocavox!

Pros: Ease of use. Responsive to needs.

Cons: Not query-based for front end user.
That I don't have access to make some parameter changes - but probably for a good reason that I do not. :)

Overall: Maestro SIS is a highly-responsive customizable solution for our ever-changing SIS needs. Within a couple of days or sometimes hours, a customization request, is delivered. Customer service is outstanding. More often than not, I am meeting with Jose and/or Sue to think through logic and solutions that can best serve our needs. The entire team is awesome and always attentive and responsive to delivering the highest quality customer service. They treat me like family. Maestro has kept us in the business of providing access to a high-quality online education to our students.

My only suggestion to overall quality is that it would be beneficial to be able to query data for a report without having to make a request.

Recommendations to other buyers: For set-up, know and understand your school and it's needs in order to develop processes that Maestro can supplement and make easier. Unfortunately, I didn't know a lot about our processes during the set-up. I didn't know what I didn't know. Knowing the

Comments: Working with the dedicated folks at BocaVox LLC has been an invaluable experience in collaborative educational innovation. Offering management services to a number of accredited K-12 virtual schools, Academica Virtual Education has a great need for ensuring that our educators┬┐and the students, parents, and communities we serve┬┐have access to the best possible methods of monitoring student success, identifying academic problems before they become crises, and ensuring that all stakeholders are informed, knowledgeable, and invested in the ultimate achievement of our learners. However, their Student Information System, Maestro SIS, has provided us with much more than just monitoring and reporting features. Their team has worked tirelessly with us to customize their system to our needs, providing us with specialized pathways for grouping and communicating with students through our House Affiliation motivational and community-building endeavor and creating unique supervisory roles for educational professionals not previously available through a traditional brick-and-mortar mindset (academic coaches, virtual teacher mentors, and blended lab site coordinators, just to name a few).

Under the leadership of Sue Diseker, the Maestro SIS team has not only been responsive and gracious with their time and energy but major contributors in helping us think most clearly through potential issues and problems, and of course, proactive solutions. From that standpoint, they have ceased to be vendors and have truly become strategic partners and peers in the movement to transform the world for the better through online learning.

Comments: When considering a SIS, Maestro by Bocavox is a robust product choice. We were in the unique position of starting a school from scratch and, after much research, chose Maestro and Brightspace as our SIS and LMS. Dean Stephens and his team have delivered, not only a great product but also exceptional service. The project phase was well planned and executed and we got tons of support as we worked in the system after it went live.
Integration with Brightspace was tougher than we expected but the Bocavox team was there with us all the way, going far above and beyond to deliver the solution we needed. Our students, faculty and staff find it intuitive and it delivers all the features they need. We look forward to many years of continued use of Maestro.
My suggestion for moving forward would be to create a completely separate Higher Education version and brand and market it separately.
