Pros

There are so many GREAT features about Alma, to list just one is hard to do. I love the feed back that I receive from parents, teachers and administrators stating what they love about Alma.

Faith O.

Overall is is great , good initiative to consolidate all of the schol information at one place. In short this is like an ERP system for schools.

AS

Avinash S.

Also a lot of followups on emails, SMS are saved by using this product. The experience has been great and their support team at times has gone out of their way to help.

Cons

Nothing stands out as a negative. I would be searching to find something that dissatisfied us.

KA

Kay A.

There is no option to batch print report cards all in one job. There is no page break option, so RCs end up getting copied to the backs of one-another if they have an odd number of pages.

MD

Matthew D.

I am not on the admin side but have heard a bit of frustration.

KN

Kelley N.

Cons

It can possibly do something more on the live interaction feature adding; at the moment as I know it’s all about posting content but no live interactions are there.

AP

Ankur P.

Need Internet connectivity which may be difficult when Internet is not available.

BN

Benjamin N.

Doesn't show the history of comments on assignments; should enable feature to have 1:1 chat with teachers to clarify doubts.
