I have been working with ACEware Student Manager for about 9 years. This registration system is so powerful that you have endless possibilities for course management. Aceweb the online portion of the registration system is very helpful with basically being a 24 hour employee. You may have registrations occur over night. With our experience we stay organized for our programs and we are able to contact students on a regular basis and keep track of returning students.

Pros

Endless possibilities with names, registrations, courses, rosters, receipts, payments, etc... What ever data you put into the system, you can pull it out on to a report. Aceweb allows you to have multiple interfaces to meet the needs of different program areas. If you have one program that has different policies and cancellation policies, give that program a separate online interface and it can be customized to fit that programs' needs.

Cons

Our organization just switched over from a FoxPro version of the registration system to a SQL version of the registration system. We have come across some issues switching versions of the registration system, but everything is fixable and we are well on our way to having our system running smoothly.

Response from ACEware Systems

Thanks for your great comments, Brittany. We won't stop working until your SQL version of Student Manager and ACEweb are humming along.

An effective software that places a lot of control in the customer's hands

In the beginning, I struggled with Student Manager because I didn't have sufficient (or any) training from my organization and had to self- teach. Over time, I have learned a lot about the various functionality of the program, with the use of the convenient online user manuals, the regularly-scheduled webinars, and the ease of contact with the ACEware staff. In the last few years, there have been constant upgrades to the system which have made the system more user-friendly and has added more functionality. While I am still not using the system to its full potential, I am learning more about it every day and slowly implementing additional features. I believe with the right about of technological support from my organization, this system will be able to meet all of my registration and record-keeping needs.

Pros

This software is very customizable. There are tons of settings that can be modified to suit the specific needs of your organization and many additional areas/fields in the system to collect specific data on courses, students, and payments. A lot of the modifications can be made with ease and without the need for additional support for technology administrators.

Cons

Nothing that I can think of. Any problems that I have personally had with this software have been due to a lack of knowledge on my part and/or a lack of additional technology resources within my organization. With sufficient training and organizational support, I believe this product can be adjusted to meet all of my needs.

Student Manager: the Good and the Bad

We have been able to work with the software to make it more user friendly and learn more coding to make registration a quicker process. We have been able to work with their customer service to correct some further issues. Customer Service is quick to handle any issues and work with us to get problems resolved.

Pros

The ease of inputting sessions and courses is admirable. We have found that individuals like the ease of use in registering. The ability to personalize confirmations for each session is a large plus and the pared down options make it intuitive and easy to teach new employees.

Cons

In order for the information to show up properly on our website, some HTML coding must be used, which can cause extra hassle. Our clients are unable to register for multiple sessions/individuals at one time, so they must submit multiple transactions, which can be tedious. The overall look is outdated.

Response from ACEware Systems

Hi Leslie! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we really appreciate it. We are glad to hear how easy it is to create courses. I do note your comment about clients not being able to register for multiple courses or multiple people in a single shopping session. You clients absolutely CAN do both. I strongly encourage you to reach out to your dedicated user support specialist to clear this up! As you mention, they'll be quick to resolve this!

Sioux Falls Community Education - ACEware

Sioux Falls Community Education has had ACEware for our class registration system since 2003. When I came into the department, our department supervisor had us look into 2 or 3 different software to replace ACEware. As we explored options, no one had the features we required for all of the different registrations we do.

Pros

As we explore the software further and have the time to attend training webinars, we discover more and more features that we were not aware that ACEware entailed. Our website has been totally made over thanks to ACEware, it is now so interactive, full of photos, video spotlights, links to You Tube, links to other website pages, instructor biographies and headshots for students to view prior to registering. Our customer support - Jason - always answers within 24 hours of any problems or requests we have. I was able to attend the annual ACEware User conference this spring and returned with many ideas and shortcuts. The webinars and archived webinars are so convenient and I cannot wait to implement the shortcuts and changes that I learn from them.

Cons

I cannot think of anything!

Response from ACEware Systems

Thank you, Melodee! So glad you are enjoying your ACEweb makeover with responsive design! We are so glad you and your team continue to discover all the features we have available. Sharon

Awesome system with a lot of flexibility

This is a small company that really cares about making sure you have what you need. You are assigned a service rep who gets to know you. And if you attend one of their conferences, you meet pretty much the entire staff, all of whom are super knowledgeable and friendly.

Pros

You can purchase several modules separately so if you don't need something, you don't need to buy it. The ACEware staff is the best and the customer service reps do a wonderful job of walking you through any kind of question you might have. It's pretty powerful course registration software that accommodates different organizations. They are always working to improve what it does and how.

Cons

It might seem pricey, but it's worth it when you need some help to be able to call them up and get it solved over the phone .

Response from ACEware Systems

Thank you for the great comments and your confidence in our product and in our team! We do constantly look for ways to further enhance our product line. It's customers like you that drive our development.
