Administrator's Plus Feature Reviews

Jill Grabert

One of the best SIS systems that I have used.

2018-02-07

Ease of use, track any type of data that we want, support that is responsive...

Pros

It allows you to track whatever data that you want.

Cons

The web version is sometimes slow - which we need to be able to access from any location. I am not sure if it is a location issue - but we are frequently disconnected to the service and have to log back in.

Admin+ is the perfect database solution for our school. All-inclusive, easy to use & well supported

2017-05-02

Everything in one place. Makes me more efficient and effective in my job. I use less paper and can do more work online. Allows my "clients", aka, students, parents & teachers, to be more independent.

Pros

The comprehensive nature of the software and ability to extract needed data quickly.

Cons

Some limitations on data management and exports in terms of unique family dynamics.

Comprehensive System, Easy to Navigate

2017-05-03

Over and above the benefit of the general benefits of a student information system, the super database tables and the Excel Wizard allow me to store and analyze data that is valuable for our decision making process.

Pros

I like the tabs for different pages and modules that are set up for specific information and rights assigned to users. I also really like the Excel Wizard and the E-Mail features. Support is wonderful!!

Cons

I sometimes struggle with the necessary codes for writing reports and understanding when information is pulled from contacts and/or the database fields.

Rediker has the best customer support team that I have ever had to deal wth.

2017-05-03

I like that all the data I need is in one place.

Pros

I like that I can usually get all the data I need quickly.

Cons

I have never found it to truly be "User Friendly." Customizing reports is still rather tedious and can get very frustrating.

Great way to house student data information

2018-02-25

All data is in one place and easily accessible and reports needed are easy to gain and print once you understand the process to pull them up.

Pros

That we are able to transfer data easily and effectively yearly.

Cons

Sometimes when customer support is needed we have to be sent to various people to help us, not all support can help with certain issues.

It meets my needs and allows be to function efficiently.

2017-05-08

I am able to track all my student and staff data and information.

Pros

The Lookup feature and the Export to Excel feature -- and so of course, everything else between those that make my work very possible. i appreciate the big task that goes into creating an SIS; but that you are able to respond to our needs outside of the database such as exporting data is a boon.

Cons

That the Lookup cannot be used to enter data as one would Excel.

I am always so pleased with Rediker's Tech Support Team. They are top notch! Extremely knowledgeable

2017-05-11

Rediker helps make our end product, Parent Portal and Report Cards, look professional and easy to use.

Pros

Admin Plus has a user-friendly interface and is not hard to learn how to run the program from an Administrative point of view.

Cons

I would have to say having to Sync every day from Admin Plus to Plus Portal so the attendance will show up for the parents is probably my least favorite thing.

comprehensive, multiple features

2017-05-02

Integrated scheduling and reporting

Pros

There are many features that can be used - report cards, transcripts, scheduling.

Cons

It can be so convoluted to use, not intuitive or user friendly. F-1, F-6 keys. For example, the system tells you that someone else is logged in as supervisor, even though what happened is the internet failed and the system dropped rather than being closed properly.

You can access any sort of family or student information and utilize that information!

2017-05-08

Just an all-encompassing program that allows us to access current and past student and family information.

Pros

Options to include so much specialized data that teachers and staff need at our school.

Cons

Have never been able to utilize DB WR to make labels. They never seemed to fit on the labels correctly.

Clunky, Dated, Limited . . .

2015-07-06

Yes we have the new version that has "updated" the interface but the software is still a hodge-podge designed system. Custom fields of any size require "SuperDB Tables" that have no easy interface to access and are severely confusing to the end users.

Response from Rediker Software


We are sorry to hear that your experience using Administrator's Plus has been less than positive. Our products are used reliably by thousands of schools around the world. Rediker Software is always working to improve the user experience with innovative products and offerings. We take feedback from our schools very seriously in order to constantly improve. We are working on new versions of AdminPlus and Admissions Plus Pro to enhance the platform and features while maintaining all of the functionality that schools have trusted for 35 years. These new versions move beyond previous limitations, giving you ultimate flexibility in an already robust product. We highly encourage your school to check out our new web gradebook and parent/student web portals to see the direction our products are moving in and to stay tuned for new versions of our products.

Very accomodating support team that makes the chnges we neeed when we need them!

2017-05-11

Having a centralied database with the capabilities of this program allws us the ability to have more fluid work flows and generate reports quickly.

Pros

My favorite part of the software is the portabilty when using the app. As an administrator, you need access to information when you are out in thebuidingor elsewhere on campus. Pair that portability with the multiple services offered and you have the total package for an LMS and databse combination. Very pleased with this program.

Cons

If there was a con for this software, I would say it is the inability to respond to parent generated emails from the plus portals side of tghe program. When they send it from the system, you cant reply directly. Very small gripe considering the communication benefit.

Not Truly Web Based, There Are Better Options Now

2019-05-08

We have been successful with Admin Plus, yet we fully intend to move on from it once our contract is up. My main take is that this company is suffering from some serious "paralysis by analysis", and/or lacks the development resources to pull them out of a humongous hole of technical debt. While almost all their competitors have moved to truly web based applications across the board (most of them many years ago), Rediker has surely known it must do this to survive yet here we are many years later and they have no web based Admin Plus to show us, it remains the clunky outdated Windows app. That's some combination of poor strategy, poor leadership, and poor execution.

Pros

It does cover all you need out of a Student Information System: attendance, enrollments, grading, report cards etc.

Cons

While they bill the Rediker suite as an integrated solution, it's actually a bunch of modules cobbled together via API, so it's not much different in practice from using disparate products made by different companies.

Admin Plus ... Keeping up and Moving Forward

2015-01-09

In particular, access to our SIS via mobile devices for checking schedules and attendance anywhere with internet connectivity -whether in the hallway or out on the athletic field - allows us to sync and obtain emergency information from anywhere, and this is a huge advantage for us.

We have used AP since 2000 and love it.

2017-05-02

Keeps our data meaningful.

Pros

Admin Plus' just in time training videos are also very helpful, especially at beginning and end of school year.

Cons

There is not really any part of Admin Plus I do not appreciate. Of course it could always be less expensive, but give the support we receive, I understand the price.

Very good - we have had Admin Plus for 15 + years.

2017-05-02

Pros

You can customize any report, screens, etc. 2.

Cons

1. How flexible the software is for each user! Often after updates some specs need to be "touched" for users. 2. While understandable, at the busy times of year is it hard to get through to support. 3. We are Cloud hosted, and some processes seem slow. 4. The Silverlight/HTML5 issue has been a strain. While much better now, we lost some trust with the teachers over this.
