Rycor makes business sense.

The Rycor team was hands on during implementation and continue to offer solutions and suggestions to assist our school district on the collection of school fees thus increasing the revenue for our school district.

Pros

The software is very user friendly. One does not need a computer programming degree to use.

Cons

At this time, there isn’t any features we don’t like.

User friendly student fee management software

Rycor allows us to offer electronic payments and other ease of use benefits for our families. It also makes discounting, pro-rating the fees, and enabling a "one stop shop" for textbooks, field trips, parking passes, athletic passes, etc all in one place. And when there's a question...the customer service is UNMATCHED! They are outstanding!

Pros

The ease of use for our school users is great, but it also provides a wonderful ease of use for our parents.

Cons

There are just a few tweaks I would make to it to enable even greater functionality....apply textbook assistance to everyone within a certain group and apply it to only their textbook fees and not "other" fees.

Reasons for Choosing RYCOR

Linking to PowerSchool, ease of use for users and parents, electronic transactions, etc.

"There are also less errors using RYCOR. Before there were too many spreadsheets we had to take care of which were easy to lose and easy to fall behind on."

Pros

"I like being able to take payments for different schools, it's a one stop shop, making it easier for the parents"

Cons

sometimes it takes me to long to find a report I want to use. But once i find it the report is very helpful

GREAT PRODUCT

School tuition and fees collection was up and less missing payments as well :)

Pros

We were needing a financial program for our schools to synchronize with PowerSchool. We found the Right one with Rycor

Cons

The VPN with PowerSchool is down more times that we want! will be great if Rycor creates a plugin for PowerSchool :)

Great system

We would love to have better quality reporting at the district level for managing / understanding / reporting on our schools overall. However, the Support Team at Rycor is awesome. Super friendly and responsive. The Development team is constantly working on adding new functionality that is very helpful in our business operations. All the staff at Rycor seem to care very much about their clients both personally and from a business perspective. We always feel that our concerns are heard and validated.

Pros

Using online payments has significantly reduced the amount of cash payments at the school as well as decreasing the "accounting" required for school secretaries. It has allowed us to review and standardize processes throughout the schools since our head office accounting department is able to easily review the transactions at each of the schools.

Cons

There are fairly frequent problems between Rycor and Moneris processing transactions. Several times a week our payment batches do not equal the Moneris batches and this requires manual manipulation by the Rycor Support team. After Support fixes the transaction everything is fine but it's frustrating how frequently the error occurs.
