    A great app for school communication and integration

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    We contacted Digistorm with a last minute request to get our app ready within weeks for the new school year. They were happy to oblige and presented a very professional, customised, on-brand and functional app very quickly. A highlight of the platform for me has been Digistorm's ability to take calendar information from our school information system and integrate it not only with our app, but our website and Outlook/iCal too. They have also been fast to implement a new feature from our school information system, now allowing parents to submit student absences from the Digistorm app straight into our SIS.

    Pros

    * Integration with our school information system * Ability to use standard protocols like iCal and RSS * Highly customised to our brand * Fast initial setup * Responsive to adding additional features * Happy to make the many changes we are constantly asking for

    Cons

    * Can be slow to fix some minor bugs * App doesn't work when offline

    Thanks so much for the review Josh. It's a pleasure working with you to achieve some great results for Villanova. - The Digistorm Team

    Finally a product that understands K-12!

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    From implementation through to go-live the experience with eduAPP was seamless. Dedicated project staff, designers and support staff meant that we were kept up-to-date every step of the way. The tech jargon was gone and real speak occurred during every session. Nothing was a problem, they actually listen and the rollout was a success.

    Pros

    The parent user experience was beyond expectations but then we saw the back-end and wow; they even thought about our admin users! So often products neglect the actual people doing the work but not eduAPP. The back end is simple to use and easy to navigate making the front end user experience a breeze.

    Cons

    Not much to be honest, the little bumps along the way were smoothed out before go-live and any bespoke requests were either handled through the development phase or scheduled for future versions. This company are young, dynamic and agile and continue to challenge the product, which I love!

    Vendor response

    Thanks for the amazing review Hayley! We're so glad that you've had a stellar experience designing, implementing and using the Digistorm App!

    Digistorm EduApp

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Very happy and would recommend to other schools

    Pros

    Intuitive design, easy for the end user, centralises communication

    Cons

    Nothing specific. Parts of the app integrate with 3rd party SIS software that the school uses. The limitations of this 3rd party software limit the effectiveness of some of the EduApp features. These are issues with the 3rd party and are being resolved over time

    Vendor response

    Thanks, Stephen for your great review of the Digistorm App. We've enjoyed working with you to create an app that your school can use to centralise communication.

    Great software. Great company. Great people.

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    We had particularly complex requirements for our implementation, which Digistorm did not flinch at and have not skipped a beat during the entire process. EduApp has revolutionised the way the school communicates with our parent community.

    Pros

    The ability to integrate with any system we threw at it. The ease of use for administrators and end-users. The flexibility of the platform, company and staff. Great value for money.

    Cons

    I genuinely can't think of any. It's been a positive experience all the way through.
