    Pros
    Customer Service has been very helpful in making changes and improvements that improves the software capability. I believe this software will get even better as time goes on.
    Jamie - the president is very easy to get along with and will step in to solve even the simplest requests. For that we are grateful.
    I am happy and recommend ampEducator to anyone.
    Cons
    I would update an address, and then when I'm ready to mail out a check, I would mail it to the wrong address.
    There is no bulk enrollment option. For example, when inputting student grades it has to be done in single batches.
    I've noticed several times that when I update an address or email address, the information resorts back to what was previously there and no update actually occurred.

    ampEducator is an easy to learn, easy to use web based student information system.

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    The software is easy to use. The software is very clear and extremely user friendly for administrators and users. I learn to use the software very easily.

    Cons

    There is no bulk enrollment option. For example, when inputting student grades it has to be done in single batches.

    Vendor response

    Hi Arjun, thanks for taking the time to review our software! We really appreciate it. For bulk updating student grades there is an option to import the student grades from a CSV file. If you would like to contact us and start a ticket with support@ampeducator.com we would be happy to help you with this function. Best, Jamie.

    Great Value - handles attendance, clock hours, terms, easy to use.

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    We are a small non-profit college that uses clock hours and terms. I searched several other options, but nothing in this affordable price range. Software is web based and we never have any problems with being down. Software handles attendance, make up hours, terms, etc. Customer Service has been very helpful in making changes and improvements that improves the software capability. I believe this software will get even better as time goes on.

    Pros

    Easy to use, Web Based (Does not require a IT support team for backup and maintenance, instructors and staff can access where ever they internet), Handles Attendance, Clock Hours or Credit Hours, has flexible fields that you can utilized. You can easily generate some reports to PDF or Excel. Very affordable. You get a lot for your money.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of built in ready to use reports. Currently there are not predeveloped IPED Reporting that is required for U.S. Department of Education type reports. I will say that the programmers are very open to developing whatever reports you need. The software does not come preloaded with reports that other schools have developed or had previously written.

    Vendor response

    Hi David! Thanks for the review! I agree that when it comes to reports we still have work to do even though we do have a lot of built-in reporting tools. One of the issues we face is that we work with many schools from around the world that do so many specific things and are governed by different rules it's nearly impossible to have a "standard" set of reports. Having said that we are working...

    Love / Hate Relationship

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    There is a love/hate with ampEducator. I love the look of it, I like that it can be flexible and easy to use. It would be great for simple, straight forward companies / organizations but for more complex, higher education it is difficult to get what you need done which is what we experience. We have to pay to get special features created in order to get what we need done and later those features...

    Pros

    I like the way it looks, easy to use, able to show academic history / audit, data maintenance.

    Cons

    It's limiting in functionality for a bigger, complex school. It can feel unreliable like there is a bug or a huge workaround.

    Vendor response

    Hey Pauline! I also have a love/hate relationship with ampEducator :) that is so funny! Since we got started back in 2010 with you specifically I can remember so many times going back and forth for hours sorting out ideas and issues with you and the development team. While we have come a long way with all that we still have so much work to do! We have always done our best to address any ideas,...

    Coordinator, Student Enrollment

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    It is very affordable and the amp support team has been very helpful. They always try to help us to figure out the problems. It works well with our school and I am satisfied.

    Pros

    Amp support team is very helpful.

    Cons

    Easy to generating the report.

    Vendor response

    Hi Patrick, It's hard for clients to find time to review so thanks so much for doing it! While we have made efforts to build in reporting tools all over the place in the software we know it's not there yet. We're going to be adding some new section Dashboard reports that may help in Spring 2017. Custom reports for a small fee may be the only way to go for now if you need things to be exactly a certain way. We do provide that as an option as a last resort. If you have any request please let us know of course! Best, - Jamie

    Invaluable Tool for Our Office

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    ampEducator provides a easy to use solution to student information management. The interface seems to constantly be updated to expand functionality. The CS team is pretty small but every efficient it following up with issues with the software. ampEducator also allows for customization features that can be added /built into the platform. Not perfect, but pretty close!~

    Pros

    ease of use, customization of features.

    Cons

    updates to interface seem to happen at random and without warning. A notification of recent updates would be extremely helpful.

    Vendor response
