Continuing Education Software for the 21st Century

2019-09-09

Destiny One had a significant impact on our department's efficiency and growth. The team that supported our project was outstanding.

Pros

Using Destiny One for student registration, records and reporting has improved the student experience for enrolling in our programs. The self-serve functionality, especially tracking a student's progress, is one example of the benefits.

Cons

We offer credit programming and needed customizations to make it work for one of our program areas.

Destiny One has given us control over our revenue and reporting.

2020-05-01

We are learning new things everyday and love what the program has provided our department so far after launching is 14 months ago.

Pros

We are also able to control our marketing messages and track students better. Learning every day what D1 is able to do for us and the D1 support team has been amazing supporting our ongoing needs.

Cons

I think some of the default reports could be better designed to encompass more information for the user.

Robust solution for non-credit program registrations

2020-03-27

We use Destiny reports to track enrollment and revenue trends and patterns.

Pros

Destiny is a robust registration system with ample features for tracking registration, budget, and student data. The workflows are not difficult to follow but in some cases would benefit from being streamlined.

Cons

On top of the licensing fees, there are significant charges for additional services such as integration with other software platforms and customized reports.

Comme ci, comme ça

2020-03-20

Documentation (particularly training videos and documentation for brand new users) is lacking. API documentation is inconsistent and contains errors.

Pros

Cloud-based; many customizable labels, PV marketing content, and system configurations; offers an API; supports some integrations.

Cons

Breaks the browser back button (the cardinal rule of web UX); cannot use in multiple tabs simultaneously; UI feels cluttered on longer forms.

Excellent Support Services

2020-03-30

This program provides an easy way to market programs, email registrants, print mailing labels, and provide name tags & attendance sheets.

Pros

community is a very valuable resource when learning the product.

Cons

Since I am using this product to support Virginia Cooperative Extension public educational programs, and not continuing education, some applications have to be modified to fit my needs.

Paolo Gardinali

Quickly evolving niche product with great potential and support

2020-04-02

Pros

Destiny One has come a long way, from a semi-custom solution for small campuses and Continuing Education units to a more flexible and comprehensive platform that includes event management and more.

Cons

Destiny is now pointing at integration with better software (like CRM) to go way beyond the basic functions, but integrations come at a cost.

Review from a finance perspective

2020-03-25

The system is relatively easy to use.

Pros

Ability to pull reports on financial information, such as enrollment and revenue, registrations.

Destiny One

2020-03-25

Overall, Destiny One helped us to be very successfuly in providing non traditional Tufts students with a streamlined check out process.

Pros

Destiny One is a great tool for managing a quick checkout process for courses not integrated in with your student information system.

Cons

It would be very helpful if we could add fields and control the content, paricularly in the student profile page.

Great Potential, Good Customer Service (and you will need it!).

2020-03-30

Although we experience pain integrating the software with our needs, we are hopeful that better communication and upgrades will result in an even better relationship between Destiny One and our department.

Pros

Strong links from all aspects of a clients' info in the staff view is really useful and the ability to keep annotated comments related to the client linked to the staff author is also useful.

Cons

There are many situations wherein the software feels like a work in progress. Upgrades can break procedures that were previously working.

Strong software product for continuing education

2019-09-11

Pros

Makes payment processing, reporting and tracking easy. Destiny Solutions is constantly making improvements and does a great job listening to customers.

Cons

This software requires quite a bit of technical, particularly to get a quality front-end website presence. Also, the product update cycle for fixes and major changes takes quite a long time.

DestinyOne from an analytics perspective

2020-03-25

Having all of our enrollment, application, and financial data consolidated into a single data source is very helpful.

Pros

From an analytics perspective, this software makes it simple to extract and evaluate the needed information. There's a robust support structure that provides very thorough documentation in the form of help files, ERD diagrams, and timely responses to requests/tickets. Having a Tableau platform (server) in place is also extremely helpful.

Cons

Integration with our financial system has been a challenge due to how the reports were initially exported (pre-formatted spreadsheets with headers and merged cells), but this has been addressed in current versions, though most of our reporting is still custom.

Destiny One Review

2020-03-30

Pros

We were able to import current data from Banner via Excel spreadsheets and this assisted greatly during the implementation phase.

Cons

There is no plugin or api that allows Destiny One data to be queried outside of Destiny One.

Destiny One Review

2019-09-11

A single repository for information that allows for online registration and integration of program information across multiple platforms is a something we did not have before.

Pros

The flexibility of the product to accommodate various use cases is important for a continuing education unit. Also, Destiny One has come a long way to provide vendor hosted users access to customization and configurations. This allows us to be agile and responsive to the customers needs.

Cons

Eastern time zone of the company headquarters can delay progress and response time.

Great platform right out of the box

2020-03-20

Very satisfied!

Pros

Lively continual improvement process, good support communication, professional look and feel of eCatalog, corporate learning portals

Cons

I would like to streamline the required profile information, as an admin. It is too long to scroll through to the bottom of the page. Pricey at first but have since moderated the pricing.

Destiny One supporter

2019-09-16

The customer and system support is great, the team running the destiny one system is knowledgable and approachable, and the product is consistently going in a direction that improves the impact and bang for buck we get for this SAAS product. I'm very happy with it!

Pros

My favorite thing about the product as a system administrator is the self-service customization, the system support we get from the vendor, and the integration packages.

Cons

Currently, we just get upgrades once every 3 or 4 months. In the agile/devops standards for SAAS providers, this isn't as competitive as other vendors on the market that provide more frequent updates.

Review

2020-03-20

Overall we have a small team which makes it harder to use because there are a lot of steps to do anything.

Pros

The customer support is great and it allows an amazon checkout process for students.

Cons

It has limitations on mobile and in the student portal. We had to customize a lot to get it where we wanted it to be.

The only option for continuing education

2020-03-25

Pros

D1 was integrated before I arrived and the learning curve for staff was very steep.

Cons

Software is very cumbersome and very difficult and expensive to customize. I really wish it was more agile and flexible to cater to our specific needs. This is my second organization where D1 has been the system of record and we had the same issues in my previous organization.

Destiny One Software and Company Review

2019-09-12

Destiny is a responsive partner who respond quickly and professionally.

Pros

We like this software because it was specifically designed to support a continuing education/professional development operation.

Cons

It would be nice if there were a greater variety of web services and configuration points so customers can modify the product to support their unique markets and business processes.

Expense review

2020-03-25

I do use Destiny and it currently works well for what I am using it for...extraction of the current quarter contracts, verification of data for contracts, etc.

Pros

Recently, we had a overview of Destiny and learned how to extract all the current quarter contracts to an excel format. For payroll this have been very valuable. This program is very good for receivables.

Cons

Even though we did spend money to create a place to enter expenses it never was functional and a lot of time was spent entering data that was not able to be extracted.

Destiny One Multi-Program Office Implementation

2019-09-06

Whether we have questions about how to perform a complex transaction, how to resolve a problem, or reporting a bug that needs to be fixed, we always receive a prompt response.

Pros

I found it relatively easy to learn and use.

Cons

Where reporting is concerned, we feel the developers don't really have a handle on what the requirements are to run programs or conferences.
