University 33 campuses implementation

Amazing

PROS

We are a university group with 33 campuses. I have never before heard my team give feedback like: great tool – love it – amazing – schedules are done before time. This has been the best IT implementation we have ever done. Initially our staff were hesitant to move over to a new product. But when they experienced the ease of use and amount of control, they have over the schedule process and the time it saves them, they loved it. Additionally, they had the import and setup done beforehand so that when they logged in with their Microsoft SSO accounts, it was a pleasant surprise for them. The HQ overview for us is important, to make sure each of our Universities run at the correct standards and levels. The HQ gives us immediate feedback that improves and elevates us as decision makers: especially when it comes to huge amounts. We are looking at implementing the other products this company has as well, as it worked so brilliantly and was so well received by my staff. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a better solution. There was consistent support from training to support check ins to assist the teams with the transition of a manual system to a software system which was never done in our company before.

CONS

Wished we had moved over to this solution earlier.

Reasons for switching to USA Scheduler

We needed something better, faster, smarter, more customized, scalable and a system that could manage our complex data.

Where would I be without USA Scheduler?

[SENSITIVE CONTENT] gives the best customer service. If I do have a question or concern he is quick to answer the question or solve the question coming up. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] is also very good at training a new user on the software until they feel comfortable to step out on their own. Once I learned the software, it became so easy and intuitive to navigate. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been there every step of the way.

PROS

Prior to using USA Scheduler, creating the master schedule was very stressful, time consuming, and always seemed to be a disaster. USA Scheduler has helped me to simplify the process of gathering student input for course selection, reducing conflicts in the building of the master schedule, and streamlining the process of changing student schedules. It makes calculations faster than my poor brain can handle.

CONS

The program has so many features, I am unsure if I am utilizing them to the fullest.

Best out there!

It takes YEARS (decades?!) to build good timetabling software, so, like all its competitors, the interface is a little dated and its installation (local or networked) definitely has a millenium feel to it.. but [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is working on buliding a cloud based version I am told :-)

PROS

Has the most powerful feature set of any timetabling software I have tested (over a dozen in my list!) Back end is accessible via live Excel documents - great for syncs and instant access to real time changes throughout the year. Used by our Admin staff throughout the year for on-the-fly adding of students, changing of teacher assignments, rooms etc. Handles conflicts amazingly well Only presents course options that do not conflict (great for adding in students)

CONS

There were bugs... some cost us a few days work, but the support was superb. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his crew responded within minutes or hours and always had a same-day fix once the problem was defined.

Reason for choosing USA Scheduler

Feature set, networkability, and back end structure - easy push of data to our SIS etc. ASC was a close second choice but the ability and ease of adding students in USA Scheduler won the day. ASC's interface I found to be fussy with "too many tabs" and we did not need the web features of ASC - we have the all-powerful Edsby LMS which easily handles the USA Scheduler data.

Reasons for switching to USA Scheduler

BB EE was end of life Vastly superior feature set.

Best School Scheduling Product

My experience using this product over the years has been exceptional. It has produced functional schedules in a fraction of the time it used to take in the past. Love this product.

PROS

As the scheduling coordinator for a high school with just under 500 students, we offer a ton of singleton (single offerings of a class) and doubletons (two offerings of a class), which creates bottlenecks and problems. Add to this, we have limited classrooms available, which further complicates things. USA Scheduler allows me to create a functional matrix that meets student schedule requests and the specific parameters and needs of our school in a timely, yet functional manner. What would take me months to organize is reduced to a few days, once I have the database of schedule requests created. Very happy with the product.

CONS

It is a bit complicated when you first use it, so that is the one thing I fret about, but understandably, this program produces results that are amazing. The support you receive is exceptional, as the company prides itself on doing one-on-one service via Joinme.

Reason for choosing USA Scheduler

PowerSchool and the parent company are too large, and their support is spotty at best. I despise working with such a large organization because it is impersonal and ineffective.
