SAFSMS THE BEST SCHOOL MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE EVER

With SAFSMS we were able to resolve the problems of calculation errors in result sheets and the delay of its issuance to learners. Another big challenge solved was the repeated errors in the Account records; with SAFSMS we were able to have excellent and up to date fees records. With this software, our staff have realized a tremendous experience in the ICT. BRAVO! Flexisaf, keep us updated always!

Pros

What I like most about SAFSMS is its simplicity and being user friendly, also its time and energy saving.

Cons

What I like least about this software is the unavailability of a chat button for the software users.

My view

It's been wonderful actually.

Pros

It's user friendly with diverse ways to operate, search, input of almost anything concerning the school, from student's records & result to admininstrative features, to account features etc

Cons

To be sincere, the database needs to be properly worked on. There should be consistency in delivery of your service so as not to lose customers.
I'm saying this because of the experience we had in the school i work with the use of the software. There was a time that everything i was uploading were just bouncing. i will upload today, i will find it missing tomorrow, before you worked on it.
The security of the software should be tighter, so that you won't have to use MySQL to check somethings when your customers are defaulting in one way or the other.
Thanks.

SAF, Work Anywhere

* Students smile home every term with results computed and printed form SAF. * Keeps perfect record of students result and its ability to generate transcript and other forms. * Send messages to parents at once with ease.

Pros

Its ability to let users connect and work everywhere. I log in anywhere and solve any issue encounter by our staff as admin.

Cons

Its inability to have right clicking functions. Scrolling not too flexible. The general graphics should be improved upon and make more flexible.

AMAZING SOFTWARE FULL OF DYNAMISM

Pros: (1) It facilitates speed and accuracy (2) Its flexibility and synchronization with any electronic gadget is highly commendable (3) It is invulnerable irrespective of the thousands of users (4) You stay at home and do your office work (5) Using SAFSMS, loss of information like school results is completely avoided. The pros is endless. Cons: (1) Downloading empty score sheets subject by subject for a class takes time. I suggest an option for downloading empty score sheets for a class at once into a single PDF document (2) There is need for software update: E.g. We in Police Secondary School, Ukana want SAFSMS to show "WITHDRAWAL" instead of "Repeat" for a student who happens to repeat a particular class twice. (3) No template for uploading parent. (4) List of students report (Statistics) has too much column headings. Example, Class and Arm column headings are not important for they reduce Student ID column making students' registration numbers not visible.

SAFSMS, comprehensive but slow

Enrollment of students, time frame settings, examination verification, approval and comments, allocation of subjects to teachers etc.

Pros

The comprehensiveness for school management

Cons

The slowness when login in which I think might be due to traffic.

Meets the basic requirements of DBMgt/record-keeping and printing. Some flaws have been corrected.

The software should be tailored to allow Operators send SMS (not pupils results as this may be left to central control)e.g. notice of PTA meetings, notice to debtors etc which benefits cannot be over-emphasised. Also, the use of the arrow keys in data entry may also be Enabled to allow faster Data Entry in addition to the Tab key which is in operation. Initially, we Operators were allowed to create the terms, sessions etc, but lately it's being done centrally which in some cases are delayed. (this may be an internal control issue, i do not know). So far, so good!!!

Thank you very much for your comments. SMS can be sent apart from result SMS, however it can only be done if you are given the privilege. Kindly check with your Admin in order to do so. Thanks, we are always working to improve our product and will incorporate your suggestions.

Soft and easily accessible

Yes, we used it for our students some times back and every staff of the school can operate the software very well

Pros

The statistics that its operating when computing students result

Cons

Consume a lot of data when printing. And even the cost of using it is expensive that why the school management stop using it.

The software has been amazing. It has given the opportunity to work from home.

Accessibility to score entry from anywhere

Pros

I like the fact that teachers can do their score entry from any where using the smart phone which makes work more easy.

Cons

The fact that the software is configured to a 100%. My school has a cumulative score of 200% which is now converted back to 100%.but the software can't work with 200% which needs to be worked on.Every software should be customised to the client needs.

I have used it and it's very flexible to the extend that it suites every school management

Ease of use in managing school academic activities

The thing I like most about the software is file processing, which allows uploading of student records and staff details using templates

Cons

Based on the functionalities and user experience , I can say I love everything about the software, the only thing I don't like is that sometimes the software use to go down due to server issue

Great Software

Since the system was deployed we've had no problems with it so far. It has made everything easier especially for me. My only complaint is the admission forms are not as user friendly as I would like them to be.

Pros

Software is very easy to use and its also user friendly.

The software is user freindly and flexible.

* The software is very easy to use. * The present Nominal roll Sheet generates by the software needs to be redesigned in such a way that it can generate comprehensive Nominal roll for both the pupils and the Staff (i.e captures all the required fields in compliance with the organization's nominal roll format) in either excel or acrobat format which can be used for a monthly/ termly evaluations. * It is a very efficient software for managing academic records with an approximately 0.9% downtime.

Mind opening!!!

SAFSMS is a brilliant idea. Simplifies a lot of processes and is absolutely intelligent. However, a lot of the process can be further simplified and some of set up processes merged. (ie. creating a staff's payroll and assigning them to groups...) Also, check and error controls should be setup. such that you can instantly view a group of data entered to verify correctness. This idea is totally sold to Accolade House and we look forward to the fixes and upgrades in the future.

SAFSMS is easy to use, flexible and accessible to all users.To me, it's being a splendid experience

As shared above in the quick summary, the software is just cute for our educational system. The only challenge i can pick out for now is the computer literacy level of some of the teachers and majorly the parents. But that notwithstanding can not be compared with the enormous benefit and sigh of relief it has given majority of our teachers in collation and compilation of their work.

Very flexible and rubost school management s

At first it seemed overwhelming, especially during the initial configuration period. But once that was done and out of the way for good I quickly came to appreciate how flexible this solution really is. It gave us instant relief from the drudgery of data management, results tracking, school fees and payroll administration.

One of the best School Management Solutions

I have worked as an Admin in a few schools and most of them use different School Management Solutions. We find ourselves adjusting our systems & processes to fit these solutions, but FlexiSAF is so flexible that it fits exactly how you want it. The setting up process was a nightmare and I was worried if I would ever figure it out, but now I can't even believe how much work I can get done from my phone, on my couch, at home!
