Pros

The video training is really helpful and makes it user friendly. Anytime we have called for assistance, the reps have been extremely friendly and helpful.
The graphics are colorful and fun and can be edited if so desired. It invites parent involvement by letting them help modify their accounts and add their own photos and information.
I like that it's very user friendly, there is a nice flow to the daily chart, it's color coordinated and very organized.

Pros

Illumine was easy to use and very convenient. I love that I can communicate with the school efficiently and effectively.
Overall is is great , good initiative to consolidate all of the schol information at one place. In short this is like an ERP system for schools.
Also a lot of followups on emails, SMS are saved by using this product. The experience has been great and their support team at times has gone out of their way to help.

Cons

There is no option for staff anniversaries and showing birthdays report. I can't add in both parents, in order to do so both parents need to have an email which I think is ridiculous.
I find the lack of updates minimal and teacher’s have said they struggle to figure out how to enter information into LifeCubby.
Sometimes when you loose the internet connection you can not recover a video that was not send to the parents.

Cons

It can possibly do something more on the live interaction feature adding; at the moment as I know it’s all about posting content but no live interactions are there.
Need Internet connectivity which may be difficult when Internet is not available.
Doesn't show the history of comments on assignments; should enable feature to have 1:1 chat with teachers to clarify doubts.
