SchoolAdmin Feature Reviews

18 reviewers had the following to say about SchoolAdmin's features:

Jay Sansing

Great for Admissions, Wish It Integrated Better with Other Systems

2019-05-14

With everything moving to integrated systems I don't see how SchoolAdmin can survive longterm with this sort of standalone model; their limited number of API partnerships may reflect that.

Pros

Well designed User Interface, don't mind working in it.

Cons

They have a very limited number of API partnerships, they don't have an API integration with my SIS, so I have to export to CSV from SchoolAdmin and import into my SIS.

Very Useful Product for Admissions

2019-01-24

If we didn't need to integrate with another system it would have been a great solution to all our needs.

Pros

My staff also very much liked the fact that we could keep track of how many events families attended as well as how much communication they received.

Cons

It did not interface well with our student information system.

Someone will pick up the phone when you call, amazing!

2019-10-29

SchoolAdmin has made it easy for us to review candidates remotely without my whole admissions team present to meet.

Pros

I love that customer service is a quick phone call away or a quick instant message away.

Cons

I want the integration with blackbaud to be stronger.

Spend Time on Relationships Not Administrative Tasks

2019-10-29

School Admin is a top-notch customer-focused company that continues to progress and outdo themselves.

Pros

The automated communication plan: Beginning with Inquiry and through Enrollment, completed checklist items trigger emails that communicate specific details.

Cons

It has been a challenge to get our updated student data into our School Information System (SIS).

SchoolAdmin by HubSpot Review

2019-10-30

Pros

I like the ease in running reports and looking up students.

Cons

I wish there was a tool to put in notes and view notes for the family instead of having to look at individual students. Also, the payment plan rules in the contract create issues and need to be tweaked to ensure when one thing is fixed something else doesn't break.

Everything you need to go from interested to ENROLLED

2017-01-25

From sales to implementation to actually using School Admin, we've only had friendly service with great response time (usually my changes are what hold things up).

Pros

How it integrates all parts of the interest/application/enrollment process into one easy to use, fully customizable system.

Cons

Cost-worth the value but your have to make an investment

SchoolAdmin Review

2019-10-30

The customer service with SchoolAdmin has always been amazing.

Pros

I love how we can keep a running record of all communications with families in our system. I am beginning to really dive in deeper now that I have worked with it for about 6 months, to see the power of the system. There are many intuitive processes that you can set up that can save time and ensure certain communications are given to each family along the admissions process.

Cons

I wish the calendar feature with Google was a little bit more seamless, since there is a delay time of only updating/communicating with Google calendar once a day.

An Absolute Must for Schools in the Modern Age

2019-10-29

School Admin has been great to work with and has helped me personally to transition the software to my current school, as I first worked with School Admin in my original Archdiocese, before relocating.

Pros

School Admin is easy for parents, organizes the admission/enrollment workflow, and saves an incredible amount of time, energy, and frustration from a back-and-forth paper process.

Cons

There will be some time early in the process for the learning curve, as with any new endeavor.

SchoolAdmin makes my job easier

2019-10-29

I am continually learning about the tool and know that I haven't even reached the full potential of this software.

Pros

I love having our student information at my fingertips. I am able to customize forms to suit my liking and the customer support staff are wonderful. Every time that I had a problem, they were able to fix it in a promptly manner. Tutorials are provided to help with all subject matter and just by sending a chat message to the support line, some tutorials are recommended which usually solve my problem.

Cons

When we first switched over to SchoolAdmin only the student's name, date of birth, and one parent's email address was populated. It was a big transition for us in administration and for our school families.

Great Product -

2018-08-21

Pros

Terrific product - keeps everyone engaged in the system - great for communication between teams and communicating with parents about the application process through enrollment.

Cons

If everyone is not 'all in' then it becomes difficult to get all the data in one place.

Great support from Day One!

2019-10-29

Streamlines my process for handling inquiries about my school and organizes my data for me.

Pros

The software has anticipated all my needs, and the team at School Admin just understands whatever my issue may be. The support has been great from Day One!

Cons

A little tricky to understand all its features - but I'm getting there!

School Admin is my personal assistant!

2019-10-29

I rely on School Admin for nearly every aspect of my job. When things have gone wrong, a member of the School Admin support team has responded quickly and stuck with me until the problem could be found and resolved. This has included evenings and weekends when bulk enrollment emails have gone out. They go above and beyond. When Julianna, our original (and much beloved!) representative changed positions, I was worried the level of support would change as well. Remarkably, it hasn't.

Pros

I appreciate the ease of use and the scope of what can be managed through the software. I am a team of one for a school of over 500 students. I can't imagine getting it all done without School Admin.

Cons

However, School Admin is responsive to the feedback of its users and added that feature along with others to make the software even more comprehensive.

Great product

2019-12-05

I would gladly see every school invest in this app.

Pros

Easy to use kept all documents easy to get done whilst applying.

Cons

Seems to have update issues. Once all the bugs are worked out for this it'll be a perfect app for all schools to adopt.
