Pros

Pros

It is awesome to use for allowing students to track degree progress. It is simple for them to log on & see what is still needed.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

It has a lot of great functions and features (when they work). Makes it easy to upload contacts into the CRM and it has a lot of customizable options.

RF

Richard F.

The community that is always ready to help each other. You can reach out to hundreds of users and get answers.

Cons

Cons

It's awful, but they have us trapped because no one else can compete with them. Sometimes I think it would all be easier if we just used Excel to track student records.

CL

Cassaundra L.

The navigation makes absolutely no sense, it's is extremely hard to just register for classes and find your way to the proper information. Absolutely unintuitive and simply extremely ugly.

IS

Iris S.

The company itself is the worst. Their customer service is abysmal.
