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

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Response from ampEducator


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 towards having some "standards" based on type of institution and region. A really good example is tax forms - in Canada the T2202A tax form is completely different than the 1098T tax form in the USA. While we can do both it still involves some work depending on how your staff track financials, etc.

Anyway, as you know with all the work we are doing for you it's good to know at least there is a solution for pretty much any situation you can throw at us!

Thanks again, looking forward to continue making ampEducator even better with your help!

Response from ampEducator


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

Best bang for the buck!

Used monthly for 2+ years

My school has been using ampEducator since 2010. As a small school, we needed an off-site, web based, simple, affordable solution. ampEducator has grown with us over the years and adds new features that we ask them to, for a nominal fee, of course. I recommend ampEducator to my colleagues with small-medium schools.

Pros
intuitive to use, simple interface.

Cons
We pay to have custom programming done. Then some months later, the feature appears available to all software users. It feels like we paid for it, yet all get the benefit.

Response from ampEducator


Hi Ryan,

Thanks for the review! We really appreciate it!

We have come a long way since 2010 when we got started with you. While we do have planned feature updates internally it's true that when clients urgently need feature(s) to be added as soon as possible (whether we had planned or not) we offer to let them pay for priority rather than wait until the planned release (where technically possible). We do we share the benefits of the added feature(s) with everyone using ampEducator because that's just the way the platform works but you also get the same benefit from all other clients around the world that also do this. This is why we only do custom work that will benefit everyone using ampEducator. The pooling of resources based on real world needs together since 2009 has allowed us to save money and then pass those savings back to you in lower monthly fees or the "best bang for the buck!" to quote one of our best clients :)

Thanks again!

Love / Hate Relationship

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

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 are given to the rest of the customers at no charge. I feel like we do help AmpEducator expand its capabilities so it's great for people who use it now. AmpEducator is limiting and there are a lot of workarounds and errors that come up. It can be frustrating. It's affordable for us at this time, it's really hard to switch out right now, and the customer support really do try to help and fix things but it does take time.

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.

Response from ampEducator


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, bugs or concerns that you have brought to us and it is because of users like yourself over the years helping us improve that someday we will reach our goal of becoming "the most affordable, fully featured campus management system in the world".

Now that we got that mission statement plug in there - I just wanted to say again that you are awesome and thanks again for putting up with us in those earlier years Pauline!
