"BigSIS is indispensable!"

What do you like best?

BigSIS is clear, user-friendly, and critical to our work at an independent high school. The customer service is outstanding: reliable, responsive, and knowledgeable. BigSIS has integrated the work I do as registrar and office manager with the work of the others in the school's administration, and is fast becoming the "go-to" place for parent resources as well. BigSIS developers are open to suggestions and are constantly working to make this already wonderful database even more useful. We are so happy to be growing our database use alongside BigSIS!

What do you dislike?

I'm confident that anything I dislike is being taken into consideration by the good folks at BigSIS. BigSIS is very open to hearing suggestions for improvement and is as responsive to these as could possibly be expected.

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

BigSIS is providing a "one stop" platform for parents, teachers, administration, admissions, and development. This integration is extremely useful to all involved.

"Happy with BigSIS"

What do you like best?

It makes sense and is super easy to use. The ability to have many 'tabs' open at once in multiple areas of the application is really handy, so the user doesn't have to move out of and then back into different areas is a real time saver. Also, as admin, being able to actually 'be' a user and see exactly what they see is an great tool for assisting users.

What do you dislike?

There is some functionality that we could use that isn't implemented in BigSIS. For instance, printing reports for a class and having it come out on one page, not a new page for each student, would be good, as would being able to specify an advisor for a program/grade and have them see only that grade (even if the course is covers multiple programs/grades. We would also like to print a calendar of events.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend BigSIS to others considering it. I would recommend some familiarity with the product before/with the training, and do actually think the training could start off at a more basic level and/or there should be a training for users that are now a year in, so really beef up their understanding and knowledge.

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

Transcripts are now done super fast and reliably - before BigSIS it took a long time and there was ample opportunity for error. Student records and tracking are great. Love that we can give students a percentage of full credit for a class.

"Works well, the user design could be improved in areas"

What do you like best?

easy to understand once you get how it all works together. The importing of our information at the beginning was relatively easy

What do you dislike?

Some functions are clumsy & take time. Attendance could be done using a form similar to the teacher’s monthly attendance sheet and it would save the attendance people a lot of time. Parents are asking us for a phone app

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

Saves our admin so much time. Things like mid and end of year reports are done in a few hours instead of weeks.

We haven't experienced any issues of concern.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their development team is fantastic.

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

We are using BigSIS for narrative review, and their development team was able to add the key functionality we needed in order to replace our antiquated system.

"Need a Report Writer (where end user can design custom reports)"

What do you like best?

Easy for Waldorf teachers to use for writing reports.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that many fields of data cannot be exported. Many teachers (and admin) do not have time to look up information "one student at a time." They ask for lists and simple reports. Some of the reports we need cannot be done in BigSis, so we need to work around that.

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

BigSis has made it easier for teachers to write student reports and for us to share the reports with parents. Compared to our old system, BigSis is better in this area.

Highly customizable, awesome support, easy to setup and use. The export features are deep. Progress Reports can be easily customized.

Custom filters have a learning curve but easy to use once setup.

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

Moving to BigSIS helped our progress report workflow, improved access to data, allowed us to easily synchronize/export to other systems.
