I love this timeclock program

Customer service is great. They are very quick to respond and they've always been able to solve any problem we've had. Recently our clock was missing punches and they were able to remote into my computer and run a fix on the program that took care of the issue.

Pros

I have over 50 employees using this timeclock software and my favorite part of this program is the ability to run almost any report you want. My bosses are always wanting a special report for an employee and I've always been able to deliver that report

Cons

I wish that the reports available were formatted better. I download them into excel and it takes a lot of work to get them readable and ready to give to my bosses.

Great but some features are confusing

I've been using this system for over 12 years and overall it's worked very well for us. We use it daily and I run reports sometimes weekly or every other week for the supervisors so it's very highly used

Pros

I really like it that I can enter any schedule into the system and will track it properly. We use this separately from our payroll system because we need to track whether our guys are on or off the clock . We have so many guys with so many different schedules Jantek makes it easier to keep track of those schedules

Cons

I wish that there was more reporting variety. There are out-of-the-box reports but some are not sufficient for my management staff. I would like to be able to use a query method in order to pull information for reports

Jupiter can be very helpful...

Jupiter has definitely helped our school become more streamlined. Before the system, teachers were using their own gradebooks, and now they all use Jupiter. It has helped tremendously in letting students and parents know current assignment and grades. It is also an excellent way for the school administration to alert all the families of emergencies, requirements, and news.

Pros

I use Jupiter mostly to create transcripts, export data, and write emails to students and families. I had used it for a gradebook a fews years ago, and it was helpful. I love that it's a closed system and that families and students communicate through Jupiter itself. I also love that parents can sign in and check grades and assignments.

Cons

Jupiter still feels slightly behind in several areas. I think visually, it could be more attractive. There is a lot of dead space in the software. I wish somethings transferred more easily. For example, you need to write in names of courses and grades into the transcripts instead of just exporting that data from classes or the report card. The same goes for attendance. The messaging system is helpful, but it's not a sophisticated system of email, so I wouldn't count on merely using it to contact colleagues at the school.
