Mostly good, not great, customer service could be better

2017-07-19

We managed our lottery efficiently and the subsequent offers of space.

Pros

Easy to setup, easy to communicate with various groups, fairly intuitive.

Cons

Reporting is so-so, I wish it were more customizable. The search feature is limited (you can't search for a parent name).

Love the scheduling feature! Most of all, I love the customer support!!!

One of my favorite features which is absolutely worth the money is the scheduling feature!! What a time saver and so easy to use!

Professional and quality service.

2018-07-11

Instead of having multiple systems, all of the information I need is in one spot.

Pros

What I like most about this software is the versatility of the system. It can be customized to fit the needs of your company.

Cons

The only negative I have is the reporting aspect.

Smart Choice Technologies | Admissions made easier

2020-02-05

I was introduced to Smart Choice Technologies when working on a project and I have to say that it really impressed me and helped me sort out applications and making sure everything worked out well, and it did a good job at that. I definitely recommend it.

Pros

Smart Choice Technologies is the smart choice to make if you want to make your life easier when it comes to applications and wait lists for schools.

Cons

Other than the fact that you have to pay for it, I don't have anything negative to say here. It's a great tool and the price is reasonable for what it offers.

We are reducing paper usage thereby helping the environment. We are cutting down time parents spend in the school office waiting to register their students. It provides ease and convenience for busy parents.

Pros

School Mint Was an easy and effective way to transition our student registration and documentation process to an online format.

Cons

Parent reports that there were a lot of pages to navigate through.

Smart Choice Technologies Review

2019-05-03

She has been such a huge help and resource in learning and navigating the system.

Pros

We introduced this system this year to our school district. It is very user friendly. The Smart Choice team did a great job of customizing the system to fit the needs of our district.

Cons

I honestly like all the aspects of the software. If there was an area that I thought could be improved, the Smart Choice team did a great job of customizing the system to include the suggested improvement.

Easy to coordinate with school

2018-11-28

Pros

Great way to keep track of applications, important documents, dates and contact to get in touch with school on the web.

Cons

Doesn’t remove the need to call and discuss needs with a person at the schools. Needs a live chat option or direct calling option through the application.

Amazing! Our school administration and campus registrars love it!

2017-06-19

Pros

We are able to get incoming students set up very quickly for testing or find potential needs for students earlier by collecting the information earlier in the process than we have in the past since the forms are so easy to use online.

Cons

We send them the username in all communication, but parents still create new accounts!

Peggy A.

This is our 2nd year using SchoolMint for re-enrollment and I love how it's streamlined the process!

2017-06-28

Once we get all of our forms figured out and set up, it will be even easier! And once everyone gets used to the fact that they can use the spreadsheet and no longer need to have the paper in their hand, it will cut down on even more time and paper waste.

Pros

The ease in communicating with our entire school community. The ability to sort and download the information. The ease in which we can conduct our lotteries, and sort and organize our waitlist. The quick reaction time for customer support when small issues arise. The ability to build our own forms to our own specs so we can collect information for our specific needs and state requirements. The companies quick and open response to suggestions from and accommodations for their clients. And the overall respect with which they treat their clients. This all contributes to the whole sense of family and a caring community.

Cons

I only wish they also supported a database! The most difficult thing about having online paperwork is making sure everyone has access and knowledge on how to use it. SchoolMint is wonderful about helping the families with issues, but they can't help with everyone having access! :)
