Pros

They provide helpful, easy to understand assistance in a timely fashion. Over other web-based programs we've used or reviewed, Sycamore stands out as the best value and highest quality for our money.

They really are doing their best to help schools succeed. They have great integrations with google, which for us was one of the primary deciding reasons for going with them.

Overall I like the product. My school has started using more of the functionality of the software and receiving announcements and other important information has been helpful.

Pros

The support team is very responsive. The customer service is outstanding and the product is affordable for small schools.

RS

Rupali S.

The software is very easy to use and navigate and provides a very comprehensive platform for our school. The tutorials are super easy to navigate and provides continuous support.

I love how easily I can access students' information and the different kind of useful reports/lists I can pull in barely 3 clicks. Also their customer service is great.

Cons

This proposes to be a complete management tool for elementary and high schools. It is so buggy that all the parents in our school absolutely hate it.

I wonder if the schools purchasing the software, with the promise of a handy app for parents, know how bad the app is.

We had to go with a different accounting system (Quick Books Online) because we couldn't integrate it with Sycamore. Email is hard to manage at times.

KA

Kris A.

Cons

The software has glitches that confuses and frustrates our families.

At this time, there is no LMS option within the system. I asked about this feature and they said they are planning to add this feature but it is not an option at this time.

The bad thing is that you need to think like a software engineer to make sense of it. In many places, lists do not sort correctly.
