Pros: The software is easy to use and not cumbersome. For the price and functionality that you receive, it is an amazing value.

Cons: Though there are many standard reports offered, we would like to be able to customize reports on our own more.

Overall: AS3 offers all of the necessary components when managing the functions of our school including accounts receivable and collections, financial aid, career services, academics, ipeds reporting, etc. Once an employee learns the interface, it is very easy to navigate and use.

We have been very satisfied customers.

Pros: Title IV support features are crucial to our operation and as well as Accounts Receivable for tracking student accounts and payment plans. Although we don't use Report Writer, it links seamlessly with Microsoft Excel and Access to generate simple and complex custom reports.

Overall: We have used AS3 since the late 90's and it has proven to be an indispensable system that tracks students from application/admission to graduation to alumni. We depend on it exclusively for all aspects of the student lifecycle and beyond.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's affordable and their customer service is second to none!

Overall: Our new nursing school was looking for a software to manage our accounts receivable and earnings calculations and Alaquest was one of four software providers we tested. I am happy to say that we chose Alaquest and could not be happier! They have earned 5 stars in all categories with our implementation. They delivered on what they promised and I look forward to working with them for a long time. The price is right and it works within our budget as a start-up nursing school. The Director of Product Support, is someone that is willing to help you understand the product and he wants you to have a successful implementation. Overall, a Great team to work with!

Recommendations to other buyers: It has been great working with this organization!

Pros: His time in the market says he has responded to the needs of the market. It remains current and represents a wonderful administrative software that allows research, development, sales and

administrative software support. Because it is an integrated system, it allows linking with others already installed. Ideal to teach students of the schools of Administration.

Cons: With so much time in the market and with the functionality of this softwar it is difficult to comment against.

Overall: I recommend it in the administration school of the university where I work.

Comments: I have been using AS3 for the past 2 years, I use it on a daily basis. I was nervous in the beginning with learning how to use the different functions but with the help of there support team I was trained on how to use all the different functions and I'm confident I'm doing everything correctly. The support team is best I've seen they reply right away and give you step by step instructions on how to complete which ever task you need help with. This program is highly recommended, it accurately keeps track of the attendance and grades which makes my job now so much easier. Thank you! :)

Users are encouraged to call or email for support. Since every school can differ in how it will use a software product, we always suggest 2-4 hours of online training. Our training sessions can be recorded and utilized for years to come!
