Pros

It is now seamless and very useful. Our parents are very appreciative of the improved communication we now offer as well as the mobile app that lets them more easily track their child's progress.
It is very user friendly and affordable for small schools. Notable: Teacher Pages which have been very Covid Friendly, great report section and parent friendly app.
I particularly am grateful for the patience and knowledge of the customer care resps. No matter how simple or trivial my questions or issues may be, they are very gracious and helpful.

Pros

I love that it is easy to navigate and allows users to control the settings. I rarely have glitches and if I do the customer support is excellent.
Ease of use, great features and most of all our families love it. Brightwheel is such an amazing app to have especially in this post covid world.
Overall, this product seems promising. The opportunity to engage families in a new, innovative way is exciting and we are hopeful to have opportunities to implement this in the future.

Cons

There are no features that are too hard to use. I was not here when this program was integrated.
Also, the statements for the parents can be confusing.
Since I'm beginning to learn a little more of the software, I can not make an accurate comment about what I dislike least about the software.

Cons

Unfortunately, there are some issues with the Payments section. The link "Print Invoice" does not work for me, so a daycare had to send me the invoice via email.
The only thing that bothered me was the billing. But they've already updated me on this point.
After a family emergency, I had to pick up my 5-year-old grandson from school.
