EMPOWER is a user-friendly student information system that our school has used for over ten years! All of our departments, students and staff are able to use the same system and has made communication, tracking and reporting exceptionally efficient for our school. We use this database to do a wide variety of tasks from handling applications for incoming students, tracking students through the Admissions process, enrolling students into classes, storing confidential student records and maintaining them, a place to process/maintain billing/tuition payments, financial aid tracking, annual reporting and much more. We also use the web portal where students can view their schedules and pay tuition online, and we even use this as a place for our instructors to enter attendance and grades. Needless to say, it's organized our school a tremendous amount. Not only is it an easy software to use but all of the support staff are extremely helpful, and always go above and beyond as far as database support and training. I highly recommend EMPOWER!

Reliable, fast payroll process. Displays the payroll register before you post for easy double-checking. The payroll process is clear and straightforward.

Empower provides payroll and HR software that helps keep us organized, although the reporting has room to be better

When we combine these couple issues with less than stellar customer service with our payroll provider that supports us in the use of this software, I would not recommend it--and we will be looking to replace it in the coming year probably.

The customer service is out of this world. The modules are code driven and user definable. New features and functions are continually added to improve the product. The profiles and extracts makes retrieving data even easier.

Imagetek has been a partner of Empower's for over 10 years and I've had the pleasure of working with them for the past 2.5 years. They are amazing to work with and care deeply about their clients.
