BigSIS Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • Large number of features for the value, I think you would be hard-pressed to find another software that offers as much for the cost. Great for smaller schools on a limited budget. Increasingly good customer service and modules.
  • The front-end is very user friendly; reports can be easily customized; no issues with faculty entering grade reports; ability to selectively communicate with parents/donors/employees; create enrollment contracts on the fly; portal allows parents to update address & health info as well as access to their child's grades, homework assignments, and sign contracts electronically. Customer service always prompt and very helpful.
  • Their customer support is upbeat, helpful, open-minded, tuned in to the experience of the user, with fairly quick turn-around on a ticket (usually less than 24 hours), and very personal. I also love that they listen to the customer, and take the feedback into their product, making improvements. These take time, and of course, the source of improvements are the initial frustrations (limitations) that caused the suggestions, so it's not perfect. But in my experience, no database is perfect anyway, so you might as well go with one that will improve over time.
Cons
  • Due to its multitude of features you ideally need one person who has been trained in all the modules to do the set-up and to make annual adjustments. Normal user would be overwhelmed. BigSIS should offer this as an additional service.
  • It is not always intuitive for staff who don't work with the program often. Limited resources online to help you with issues. Having a user manual would help a lot. I end of having to create a lot of my own user guides to share with faculty and staff.
  • My biggest frustration is the lack of generic training videos and/or detailed user manual. I see they are adding in little info bubbles to help answer questions (which is great), and there are some how-to videos in the help section, but not nearly enough. I feel like there's a lot to learn about this database that is bottle-necked at their help-desk, and I personally wish that I could learn a lot more in order to maximize our usage. This being said, they are forward-thinking crew, and their upgrades are well-thought out, and I expect the product to continue to blossom in functionality. I think almost any Waldorf school with a tight budget would do well to jump on board with them, since they offer a fairly robust functionality for a good value.

I'd say we are getting the basics, which is more than can be said for other solutions. We are getting registrar records management, donor records management, most of what we need for mailings, and now we are expanding into alumni records management. I have many ideas for what I would like to see from the product that would make the registrar's job, in particular, easier, and they are open-minded, so we will see what the future brings.Their customer support is upbeat, helpful, open-minded, tuned in to the experience of the user, with fairly quick turn-around on a ticket (usually less than 24 hours), and very personal.
