"Great Campus Tool with Neat Features"

What do you like best?

Currently, we use this system for our campus classroom management. I think it's underutilized in many aspects but some nice features are: detailed information about classroom spaces (including pictures, classroom features), actual scheduling details for the rooms, a space to see which rooms are available within certain parameters, a form to submit a room reservation request.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to say because I'm not sure the breadth of what the product can do. I do believe we're underutilizing the features available to us (there's an option to pull up data about room use and historical reservations that could be really interesting).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has helped the Registrar's Office manage campus classrooms and meeting spaces. It allows us to better utilize the spaces available.

"Ad Astra is a great tool for scheduling events and optimizing classroom utilization"

What do you like best?

The ability is optimize classroom utilization is a nice aspect of this software. There is also a platinum analytics portion that recommend the most efficient use of space for all campus space.

What do you dislike?

The interface can be slow and complicated for new users. It is a job to get setup and implemented, but they are equipped to assist with this. They have a cloud implementation, now that greatly reduces setup and upgrade inefficiencies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ad Astra will require someone with technical knowledge to set up. Their support is also very helpful and friendly. They will assist in getting the setup complete and any issues that the user may have in the future. They have service plans available to maintain and keep the software updated to the newest versions. They are know running from the cloud, which greatly simplifies the initial setup, implementation, and upgrades.

We use the software to optimize our classroom scheduling and also to schedule events.

Allows for designated end users to request and schedule room/meeting space usage on campus. The analytics that this software provides helps administration to make data informed decisions on space utilization. A great scheduling tool!

What do you dislike?

Can take new users a while to get used to using it. If you are someone who doesn't use it often, then you will need refreshers all the time and can be annoying. Can also be difficult to setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The cloud implementation was the best thing they could have done. It makes upgrades so easy!

Room/meeting space utilization.
