Great product and service!

Pros

I really enjoyed the feedback from parents on how easy and quick it was to book the classes they wanted and log in.

Cons

No cons that I can think of... The price is a little more than I usually pay but it was well worth it in time savings.

Pros

I like that it was very easy to set up with very little to no training. I also like that a chat head pops up when you appear to be having problems.

Cons

We some times have issues with parents finding the forms on their end that need to be filled out. A way we figured out to bypass this issues is have the attachment go out with the confirmation email.

Pros

The ability to have online registration for events almost immediately. I've found the reports on financials and sign ups helpful as well. They also try and get extra signups for our events.

Cons

The signup process for attendees isn't the smoothest process in this day and age. It's also pretty expensive to have them process your payments.

It was much easier for our customers to use than our previous software. It helped cut down on our in office traffic for sure.

Pros

The customer side of the website was user friendly. It was easy to talk parents through who called in needing assistance.

Cons

Not all of the reports had what we needed. Also, not all reports exported into excel in a clean format.

Pros

The registration reports are easy to run and informative.
Registrants receive automated confirmation emails with the required paperwork for them to print, complete and upload right to their family portal.
We can send group email reminders with the click of a button.

Cons

We run two summer camp programs in different states, and need to log in and out to go between the programs. I wish we could "toggle" between the two camps.

Lots of report options from the administration stand point. Lots of good compliments from the users.

Pros

Customer service is top notch. Active has made announcements about software development options and actually followed through on those developments all the while listening to their clients.

Cons

It's a hard problem to solve, but I'd like to see a way to integrate their software with our membership database that would allow Museum members to have special access to classes and rates that would not require them to remember a pin or code.

Pros

Once you get it set up, it's really easy to create new class sessions. Some functions are ridiculously easy. Using ACTIVE has been a real time-saver in many ways.

Cons

Our package seems to be oriented towards parents enrolling their children. Our classes are attended almost exclusively by adults and there is a lot of push-back about having to supply birthdate. Also, too many clicks in the registration process. Some clients have gotten caught in an automatic enrollment in the ACTIVE discount program, which many have felt was fraudulent.

I love the fact that no matter what type of program I'm setting up, whether it is summer camp or an after-school activity, I can create the registration to fit my needs. Being able to design the registration allows for a streamlined report running process. Active's customer service is attentive and has answered of all my questions and more! Sometimes, I'm given multiple answers and I'm able to pick the one that works best for our programs.

Cons

The Active program could benefit from not always reverting back to the default when running reports.

Pros

The ease in being able to have people register online and secure their payments! We are a very small Education Center and were not able to offer online registration and payments prior to ACTIVE. We have been very happy with the online registration! Can't beat the cost!

Cons

A little more training on the software would have been more beneficial. We are learning our way around but felt we were not trained adequately to begin with.

This software was extremely easy to navigate through and learn the ins and outs. My roster for preschool and summer camp hovers around 300 families and their registration process was smooth. I am able to do so many things like assign classes/groups, print reports, review waitlists and so much more.

Cons

The ONLY thing I did not like was that families were automatically enrolled in the ACTIVE site which cost a yearly fee that was charged to their credit card and many of them had no idea.

Active makes our registration and collection process easier than it was with our old system. There are a few things I would change, such as being able to sort the kids or register them or limit registrations by birth year instead of birth date, age or grade, as everything in hockey is done by birth year. Its very easy to set programs up. I also wish we could send emails by "birth year" as that is how all hockey teams are set up.
