Orbund Feature Reviews

16 reviewers had the following to say about Orbund's features:

Carrie H.

Buyer Beware - cumbersome and faulty software and abhorrent customer service!

2020-05-04

Their only customer service is [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] in an online tech support chat who often understands the system less than I do and has recommended 'fixes' that took hours to correct.

Pros

We have only kept this program because it is one of the few who offer parent-directed online registration.

Cons

There are so many manual functions necessary in this system, the finance reports don't pull information correctly, there aren't basic features like ordering reports or customizing reportable fields, names are sorted by first in some places and last in others and I was told that couldn't be revised.

Response from Orbund


Orbund's Einstein SIS is designed for higher education. But we have tried our best to make it fit for this home school education provider. It's been like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. I am sorry for our shortcomings. But the fact is that despite our limitations Homeschool Connections is still a client. That shows we have a good product, with a lot of features and flexibility, that is providing some value to the client. Sorry we disagree with your review.

Experience with ORBUND

From teacher standpoint it is a comprehensive system from lesson plan to assignment all the way through grade book, announcements, messages and alerts. Also, administrators find this system very helpful.

ORBUND Educational Management Tool Review

2013-10-17

The idea of having teacher records including report cards and transcripts, assignment grades, attendance, disciplinary actions, contact information and sending messages to parents and students then be able to store these on a server is a powerful tool.

Fits our school's needs

2015-03-24

We do wish there was more we could personalize but in comparison to other online school management systems, we have had the most flexibility and ease of use with Orbund.

Beyond Expectations

2011-03-19

What is unique about this system is that it is tailored to meet our needs and the technicians have not just designed a system without flexibility.

Pros

- It is customer friendly - Easy to use - Very simple yet extremely effective system - Meets our needs - It has features that meet the needs of all of our departments (Registration and Records, Admissions, Finance, Students, Lecturers, Library) - Has features for online assessments - Exceptional service and support

Cons

The only drawback is that we did not find this system earlier.

The Best Web-Based SIS/CMS Service for Institutes, Colleges, and Universities!

2011-03-25

Overall I would strongly recommend Orbund, without reservation, to Bible Colleges, Bible Institutes, as well as Universities and Colleges who are on a budget regarding their Web-Based SIS/CMS System. What a difference this software has made for the staff, instructors, and students @ the Palmer Institute! We can't live without this software now, especially because it is simply the best on the market.

Pros

What's more, all the variables regarding setting up Courses/Classes proved to be extremely useful because we have certain Departments that have required courses/classes in order to advance to the next Level etc...

Cons

The only con I would have is to make the Financial Module more user friendly. However, with the recent updates, the Financial Module is much, much better than before.

Limited only by my imagination

2017-03-06

I was told it was not possible so I should report it to my administrator who would seek to have this feature included.

Pros

The flexibility - it responds to my needs

Cons

A bit sluggish with the messaging feature

Response from Orbund


This school is a special case. They don't have dedicated administrative staff for operating the system. We have provided free training every time we have been requested. The commenter was trained for instructor role, but she has been working as administrator also without training by us. The client requested live support at night. We made special arrangements for live chat support after 9pm. We believe the separate roles for user login makes our system more secure.

We needed reliable transcript services and got more than expected.

2014-02-24

As the director of a small college prep boarding school, New River Academy, I researched transcript programming easy for staff to learn, functional and within our tight budget.

Superb Software System

2013-04-10

Because the system is so easy to navigate, it has personally saved hours of my time (in the role of registrar) finalizing a day's work that were once lost to our former database.

Pros

-easy to navigate -time-saver -accuracy -professional and friendly support team

Cons

None to list.
