Emek-Review

2020-03-02

My overall experience is positive, Parentlocker is always there for help. They respond to the emails in less than 24 hours and they are efficient. You are not being tossed between people. You issue is followed till it's solved.

Pros

The things I like about this software is : -You can customize easily report card and progress report -If you made a mistake, supports helps you retrieve the data you lost -Reports from the school data base is an easy step - Support is always ready and eager to provide your need and customize reports for your need (we were able to change our attendance report to fir our need)

Cons

At this point, I wish sharing with google classroom had more control on the sharing items (for example except streaming) -different languages for communication with parents, so that parents that are bilingual can easily read our messages.

I have been thrilled with having Parent Locker as our SIS for school management!

Pros

The product is so comprehensive; it can create many types of data reports to help analyze different situations.

Cons

This product was a bit pricier than other softwares of its kind, but well worth the cost difference since the quality is great.

Highly Satisfied Customer

2020-05-11

We use Parent Locker for report cards, student records, grades, attendance tracking, and parent contacts.

Pros

Parent Locker is the most user-friendly software I've used. It has all of the features our school needs at a significantly cost than the two previous programs we have used over the years. The information I seek is easily accessible and the service we have received when needed has been respectful and effective. I highly recommend Parent Locker and am appreciative that it is available to us.

Cons

It took a little longer initially to get the guidance we needed to get set up but found that scheduling time for support worked better for us and for Parent Locker staff.

Wonderful system for school management

2020-02-20

Overall, our experience with Parent Locker has been strong, and their team's quick response times when we have issues and willingness to work with us to design what we need has really maximized our experience.

Pros

Parent Locker is a wonderful tool for managing the seemingly infinite amounts of data that we have to track in running our school.

Cons

I would love to be able to be signed in on more than one device at a time.

Exceptional Parent Portal

2020-02-21

Pros

ParentLocker is so intelligently designed, as if the engineers who set it up were previously school administrators.

Cons

I would love it if they would make a few more parts mobile friendly, mainly the email system, so you could use it in an emergency from your phone easily, and it would be great if there were a dismissal module.

Two thumbs up to Parent Locker!

2020-02-27

The admissions process and parent access to information has been so much more efficient with Parent locker. Data about the school is at our fingertips which has made everything more efficient.

Pros

I also love how quick it is to generate a report for any data you need! If I receive a spontaneous request from the board for enrollment data, it takes me five minutes to generate a report.

Cons

There are a couple of things we are currently unable to generate in a data report - for example, we can't generate a report of students who have left the school so attrition trends are still a little challening to document in the database - but anything we can't do from our end, Parent Locker will do for us and get the info to us, which is so appreciated.

Excellent Program

2020-02-20

Pros

In a school setting it makes parent-teacher conferences, report cards, and attendance much easier.

Cons

A few teachers said it takes a lot of steps to upload a picture and send out to their individual class. Otherwise teachers are very happy with it.

The Brandeis School

We're happy with its features and integration with other platforms.

Pros

Parent Locker works well for our school and helps integrate every component of education management. We are able to utilize it to communicate with parents, facilitate PTC, and most recently coordinate our zoom classes.

Cons

Customer Service isn't as quick to answer as we'd like, however, once they do respond, they will work with us through our problem.

I have found Parent Locker to be a very useful tool! It is easy to use....

Pros

It's easy to pull necessary data - and it's easy to navigate the system.

Parent Locker is the best of its kind

2020-02-20

All of our classes and groups (ie teams or bus groups) are set up on PL inducing rosters, attendance, grade books for teachers, grades and report cards, discipline notes, test calendar.

Pros

It does exactly what it needs to Clean and intuitive interface Outstanding support It is very easy to customize with a a little bit of training and playing around- need to wait for the developers to do every little change.

Cons

The app needs a little work but I heard they are redoing it- looking forward

ParentLocker - Made our lives so much easier

2021-08-10

Pros

The entire interface is great.

Cons

The App is very basic. I know they are working on this, but currently, from a functional standpoint, we need to access from a phone through a browser which makes it a challenge on a phone.

Cons

We haven't found anything we do not like.

Unbelievable Bang for buck

2021-03-23

The low learning curve is one of its greatest assets.

Pros

Parent Locker took a complicated system, a school database, and made it extremely easy to use by simplifying the interface. Where other systems use complicated and heavy SQL type databases, PL seems to run a much more lightweight system.

Cons

The company is somewhat small. While the company is growing, I had some reservations about the age and size of the company on its long term viability. This has proved to be a moot concern as the company has continued to build and develop and is going strong. I am still nitpicking but this is still my greatest concern with the software if forced to pick one.

Ease of use

2020-05-11

Pros

Parent Locker understood the needs of our particular school. Although many of the features we needed were already anticipated, the team at Parent Locker was quick to customize our needs. The greatest thing about Parent Locker is the ease of use.

Cons

They have been slow to add such features but are realizing that schools need many different databases to "talk" to each other for better management of student's information.
