Pros: MSP is a very intuitive school management system. I find that teachers and parents with technology comfort levels that vary widely all have an easy time navigating the functions of MSP. Very rarely does the system glitch, run slowly, or yield unexpected or undesired results. The teachers in our school use it for attendance, lunch, grading, reports, contacting families, monitoring student data, running reports, and more, with very few issues. On the occasion that we do have a question, our customer service representative gets back to us immediately with a solution, suggestion, or at the very least an assurance that the problem is being investigated. Lately, we have been using the new payment module function of MSP, and have had many questions, requests, and need for troubleshooting because we are new to the program. Our customer service representative responds quickly to many questions and requests each day, and has even organized lengthy phone/screen-sharing meetings with us to more efficiently and effectively help us use the system. I could not be more grateful for the customer service and attention to detail.

Cons: There is very little I dislike about MSP. Now that the payment module is in place and MSP is working to customize it to client needs, MSP suits almost every logistical need we have in regards to student management.

Overall: We are currently solving the problem of a complicated, outdated billing system involving checks and partial payments coming from many different sources. MSP is helping us streamline our billing system to one platform. Parents are already very grateful for the change and finding it easy to use. They can pay for lunch, fees, and tuition, all in one place while easily seeing what they still owe and keep records of what they have paid.

I always have very positive customer support experiances with the team. not as satisfied w/ features

Pros: I like most of the layout and it is pretty easy to use. I like the admin dash and honestly think the admin and teacher portals are the easiest to use. The student portals could be laid out easier. I like that MSP has taken feedback an added integrated tuition payment and look forward to the bugs getting worked out of that.

Cons: I think student portals could look better aesthetically. I have students confused on their end because of the layout. Also I think that the login could be better. I have students getting locked out of their portals all the time and I have to send password resets which will time out if they don't open the email right away and then I have to resend. Most importantly I wish there was a way for potential students to have access to our accademic application and course registration directly from MSP so that when they fill out the application it goes into MSP as a "Prospect". Right now they fill out the apoplication and registration seperately then I have to hand fill in all the info to MSP. It's a pain and not efficient. Most student portal systems have the application process integrated.

Overall: It is easy to use. I like that MSP has integrated tuition payment now. I wish there was a way to integrate the Academic Application and Course Registration forms into MSP so that potential students can enter in their own information and it would go straight into the "Prospects" module. This would save tons of time on the registration end. Also, most portal software has this ability.

Pros: MSP is awesome. I switched our small, private school over to it this past year and the transition was quite smooth. Their customer support is attentive to our every need and able to address any and all issues in a very short amount of time.

MSP is quite extensive in all that it can do, yet it is well laid out. Every function of the system is easily accessible, and best of all, it makes sense. The amount of time I spend doing admin tasks has been cut down significantly since switching to MSP, plus I can do way more than I ever could with my previous system mashup of WordPress and Google Docs.

My favorite part about MSP is how fast and easy it is to find any specific piece of information. If it's a certain detail about a student or a whole report on a custom demographic, it's quite easy to get whatever I need in a matter of seconds.

But best of all, MSP is relatively affordable. Compared to the other systems out there (I looked at a ton before finding MSP), it's great to have a piece of software that even small schools can afford.

Cons: I'd say my least favorite part about the software is the customization. But, in some ways that's a good thing. I just wish that I could brand MSP a little bit more to our school. Adding our logo in various places, putting a support email somewhere, customizing the login screen those would all be great to do. But sadly, I can't. However, it's not a deal breaker. I'd rather have a system that works!

Overall: Our organization got many benefits from using MSP. The biggest is ease of use. It's so easy to do anything and everything in MSP. Also, because MSP is so well built out, it's easy to instruct others about how to do anything. Plus, their top notch support is always willing to schedule trainings in order to learn how to do something within the system.

Pros: MSP offers a lot of report options. It is nice to be able to send communications to your target audience. I found this helpful when creating information for our teachers and staff for our Emergency Binders and Voice & Text Messaging.

Cons: The lunch module doesn't work for us on the updated MSP screen and we've had to go back to the old format to use that particular module. I'd like to be able to use this module with the new MSP screen format.

I also wish that we could use the calendar module to track student daily attendance as well as teacher/staff attendance. For example, If a teacher is absent on an in-service day (non-student day). I do not have a way to track the teachers absence on MSP if I want the student daily attendance count to be accurate.

Overall: The first year I really struggled with the lack of training. I was expected to learn the modules with no training while doing my daily responsibilities which was extremely difficult. MSP issue or Diocesan issue, I'm not sure.

The support team have always been extremely helpful and in most case have gotten back to me within the day, always within 24 hours.

Pros: Easy to use and intuitive menus. I love all of the report functions. Lunch menus are easy to input.

Student progress reports are great. I like that MSP will make changes to the report card templates as needed. Conduct feature is a great help.

Love the parent notifications.

Cons: The only con I have is the voice messaging. I would love to be able to do the entire calling from a phone and not have to go back and hit submit on the computer.

Overall: MSP has always been a very innovative company from the beginning of it's start. They work with you minute by minute developing the best plan for your school making changes for you as the need arises.

They make you feel important and that no question or concern is too small.

I have worked with other SIS systems in the past but msp has been the easiest and most accommodating.

Pros: The fact that it is so user-friendly. No one has time to sit and try to figure out how a website functions. MSP is so easy to navigate for all users.

Overall: Our school has been using MSP since 2010. It is a wonderful tool for everyone to use - administration, teachers, students and parents. We are working diligently on utilizing all of the features that are available to us. There are so many reports available and it is a great way of communicating across the board. We have submitted suggestions for the site and they are always taken into consideration.

Recommendations to other buyers: I wish more schools were familiar with MSP. I have shown teachers from other schools how we use it and they are amazed at the ease of use.

Pros: I love how many things you can do with MSP. From grading, to attendance, calendar, emailing, reports, they cover it all.

Cons: The only thing I wish they had was a lesson plan module. We have to use an outside program, and it would be easier to just have it integrated into MSP. But I understand they are working on that!

Overall: We have been able to increase the communication with parents in terms of viewing grades and assignments online. Being a web-based platform has made it more accessible and reliable for our teachers as they enter their grades and assignments. They love how easy it is to use!

Overall: Hi

Cody gave me a very detailed training in the "create reports"

section of the MSP module. It was so helpful to see the different means of emailing, creating reports and how to run the attendance for this school year using create reports refresh.

Recommendations to other buyers: I am happy to learn how much this program can make the office work more efficient and organized. Looking forward to accessing this program only and not recreating lists on top of lists.

Pros: I like that it is user friendly once you have been trained on how to use each module. I also like that parents can update certain information and that report cards can be sent out electronically.

Cons: Would be nice to have an online video on how to use the different modules for a teacher, a parent, and an admin. Like one video for each user that will train them in one session. The only other thing would be to make it possible for an admin to go in and view/change a parent, teacher, and student passwords when they get locked out or are just starting to use the program.

Overall: Everything is online at the touch of a button. You do not have to be at the school to look up information.

Pros: It is relatively easy to use and for the new teachers and staff to learn. We use it for attendance, report cards and reports required by the State.

It's easy to input and then access the student, parent and staff information.

We use the report writing module a lot!

Cons: Sometimes it is a lengthy process to get a change made on a document that is going to be printed, like our report cards in particular.

Overall: Lots of information in one place after the upload. Easy to get it back out for reports.

Pros: Our company is not a school but we manage and take care of many students from multiple schools. Being able to have their photos, demographics, and key info available with any web browser and to be able to print customized reports and lists is very helpful with organizing programs and activities. We might need to see data on seniors living at one of our locations attending a particular school, and in a few seconds there it is.

Cons: Since the software assumes data from one school will be entered, the data entry work-around for putting in grades from 5 to 8 schools was on the tedious side but it was still possible.

Experience has been good. It does take some time to get used to the software.

Pros: That we finally have a cohesive system in the school that houses prospects to enrolled students. There are many modules that we are currently using and will incorporate into the future usage and all seem pretty easy to navigate through. There are some modules that when clicking on help, the PDF help documents do not load or could not be found. Meaghan has been a total help during those times.

Cons: The biggest con that I've run into is the extreme preciseness that is needed when entering a new student or doing a mass upload. If there is an extra space, or an invalid character, you will be taken to an error screen but the cause of the error is not given. It becomes frustrating when that happens and information is not given as to why that error is occurring.

Pros: I like how flexible the program is. I can use it at work or at home, on my desktop or my cell phone. Also the custom reports are incredible. As an admin, I am able to find exactly what I need every time.

Cons: Certain functions you will need to call text support to fix. Like adding a family id after the family is already in the system Fortunately, the support staff is amazing and takes care of any issues I may have right away.

I was thrown into the admin role in MSP. It does everything you need to do, once you learn how.

Pros: Customer support really is there to help you whenever you need it. The software does everything you need, you just need to know how. Once you learn, everyday tasks are easy and quick.

Cons: Sometimes, it was a lot of clicking. And sometimes (for me) it was counterintuitive. The standards based report cards, as far as I understand it, were not friendly to our K-2 teachers. But this could have been just our understanding of it.

MSP is probably our 4th SIS that we have dealt with and out ranks others hands down.

Pros: I like that you listen to what the customers need and can customize it to fit individual schools need. I also like the speed of tech support. It's also intuitive and easy to use.

Overall: Lunch is built in. Custom report cards and flexibility.

Pros: Ease of reporting attendance and report cards. We are moving from 8 forms to having all the demographics in one place for parents to update. Our faculty has decided not give parents access to grades and assignments, but several are using the gradebook feature. I have not used the admissions module yet, but plan on doing so in the next month. We are already seeing time saving in many areas and with staff.

Cons: There are times I would like to change something, but have to go through MSP to do so. I have to add that the response is very quick. Maybe even quicker than if I had done it myself.

Overall: We have a very small school, 80 students. MSP has never made us feel as though we were small. They have treated us very well through out the entire process of considering the product, to data conversion and implementation on our part. I feel the customer service and training we have received is superb! Support team has been attentive to all of our questions and changes.

Pros: The ease of use is its best feature. Also as an eighth grade teacher, the placement cards which are generated in January and June make my life so much easier.

Cons: None

Overall: Although I have only average ability when it comes to computers, I find this program very easy to use. It is my second year with MSP and I am completely comfortable with it. I had little difficulty learning to use it and I actually enjoy putting grades on line for my students to view.

Customer Support is quick to respond to any questions or issues we have.

Pros: The updated version seems to be more user-friendly. Feedback was definitely taken into account and changes were made based on customer suggestions.

Cons: We use Rubric based grading and this software does not support this type of grading in the teacher gradebook.

Overall: The training with Cody went very well. He was very thorough in his presentation and explained all the new features and how they differ from the prior version.

MSP is very end user friendly. It is all that our school needed for a information management system.

Pros: What I love most about the software is that it is a all in one informational management system that allows me to maintain all student records, I love the professional training provided for our administrative team and teaching staff. Our account representative is very professional, knowledgeable, and patient. She worked with me to ensure that our school was on-boarded properly, handling any questions or concerns in a very efficient and caring manner. Once on-boarded (fully setup), she remained in contact to ensure that all was well. If there are any questions or concerns, we can reach out to her via phone or email. Her response time is almost immediate. That alone has been such an added bonus.

Cons: There are some features that I would like to see added to streamline a few of the courses and attendance processes.

Customer Support

Pros: Customer Service is excellent. Every question I have is answered immediately. He is patient while walking me through things and he's thorough with his responses. Calls and emails are returned quickly. Although I have never met him, I feel like I know him and he knows our school and our needs.

There are endless reports that can be run for any specific need. For example, if I need to know all the boys who reside in Upper Dublin, who are parishioners of St. Alphonsus and are in 5th grade, I can run that report.

Cons: I wish there were more pre-defined reports. Because there are so many variables to choose from, it would be nice to have some basic report templates. Sometime the reports can be a bit cumbersome.

Can the health information be updated by parents? I think that is something that needs to be set up on our end. Ideally, I would like a complete information, accessible to our nurse and teachers and able to be updated by each family. That can probably be done, but I would need help.

As a unique private charter school we are finding MSP not as adaptable to our needs as hoped.

Pros: Customer Service: It has been most useful to have a representative assigned to our school who knows our idiosyncrasies. Although we cannot readily reach her by phone, she responds to emails very quickly and addresses issues in a timely manner. Training sessions/webinars are individualized and very helpful. Our representative has gone "above and beyond" expectations to make sure our questions are answered.

Assignments and Grade book: Our teachers are very happy with the ease of inputting assignments and grades, as well as with associated features.

Cons: Templates: Report card and transcript templates are very inflexible. The software limitations on how grades are displayed on report cards was not fully explained prior to our sample report card submission, after which we were "stuck" with templates that did not work well for us. Transcripts need to be able to show more than four years. The MSP templates do not allow for this.

Attendance: MSP is unable to track attendance by minutes missed, as required by Ohio law.

No school scheduling or business office modules.

Pros: I love how simple it is to add an assignment, punch in the numbers, and have the computer do all the crunching for me.

Cons: I don't understand why I am limited in the changes I'm allowed to make (renaming a class, making it show up on report cards, etc.) The support staff is excellent and very friendly, but I don't understand why I have to go through them for what seems like simple changes. Then again I'm not a computer genius so maybe the change is more complicated that it seems

Pros: I like that it is specific to Catholic schools. Most of the demographics we need are already setup. We can then customize any other fields we need for reporting. The step-by-step onboarding process with our own support person Cody. I love the Mass Update feature! They also have a brand new dashboard!

Cons: The interface is a little dated, but it is way better than most I researched. I know they are working on freshening the look and enhancing functionality all the time.

Overall: I spent last school year researching student information systems that were complete. By that I mean, they didn't have a separate module for everything. I have to say there are quite a few out there, but after watching demos and looking for ease of use, I found it in MSP. I'm only just getting started using the software, but already it's proving itself with great customer service and it's reporting features.

Pros: What I like the most about this software is its customer support. I have sent emails to request help and gotten feedback within several hours. That is very helpful!

Cons: What I like the least about this software is having only access to the students on my caseload, while I teach additional students and need to input grades for those students also. It would be easier if it was set up by class period than by students on the caseloads.

Usually very easy, One of the customer rep will quickly answer my questions.
