"Great program for boarding school"

What do you like best?

This program immensely helps facilitate the boarding life at school. The program is easy to learn, aided by the offerings of online training sessions. You can keep records of students' health conditions, disciplinary occurrences, general notes, see parental permissions, and keep track of their late or timely departures and arrivals from campus. Taking roll is a quick easy process with student lists created for different situations.

What do you dislike?

On occasion, I have noticed issues of not being able to access shared roll calls or information not being saved due to internet access/connection; however, I would say I have experienced few issues with this program.

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

Boardingware overall has helped our residential faculty awareness of all students' whereabouts, habits, any health issues (getting sick, etc.) and noting parent permissions. This enables our community to have access to up to date information in between our regular meetings, which also facilitates our duty rotations so no information is lost. It is a great resource for us to look back and notice any conditions that might need addressing, or to reward students for their responsible behaviors and leadership.

"Review of Boardingware"

What do you like best?

Ease of use for student accountability & maintaining logs for retrieving student leave.

What do you dislike?

Experienced a few glitches at the outset, but these were all corrected quickly and we've not experienced any for the last couple years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There may be other programs, but for us Boardingware has been perfect. It not only keeps updating its product, but the staff are extremely helpful and kind.

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

We needed a better method to track student whereabouts as well as process the leave requests when students left campus. Using Boardingware has made this process much faster, more time efficient, and gives the ability to access logs for a much longer history without having to keep a hard copy paper trail.

What K-12 Student Information Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"I love it for my school! "

What do you like best?

I love knowing where all my students are at any given time. I appreciate how easy it is to set up new leaves, sign kids in and out. We don't have hundred of students, but even if we did I do think Boardingware would be beneficial to a school of any size or caliber.

What do you dislike?

I feel like it often glitches or won't load the moments when I need it most, or need it to work faster. I do think that for some age groups of co-workers it took a long time for them to learn it simply because they are not as familiar with technology. However, I have changed some thing, which I appreciate having the ability to do, in order to make it easier for them to navigate the system. I also dislike that it is not really geared towards school who also have day students. While yes, there are ways to use it for day students it takes a lot of extra work on our part.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It will cover almost all of your basic needs at a private school and will make your days a lot easier. I think it is great!

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

Where students are at any given time. Not having to worry about a person who is specifically taking care of travel plans - it is all on Boardingware.

"Helpful for schoolwide communication"

What do you like best?

Boardingware has allowed our school to go away from some of the paper usage for a typical week, while increasing communication between our dorm staff and day staff. Any administrator, teacher, or dorm staff can find out where a student is quickly, or know if they are not in the right place. It allows the school to keep a record of every time a student is out due to illness, field trip, sporting event, or off campus function.

What do you dislike?

The only negative I have truly encountered is in the check out system. Any sign outs must be done over 15-20 prior to sign out or the system signs out the student automatically. Example, leaving at 3:00, if you enter the data after 2:40, they will be signed out automatically. before 2:40, the entry awaits the proper procedure.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are part of a boarding school, give it a test run.

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

The Boardingware system has allowed my office to cut down on paper usage on a daily basis by keeping everything electronic. It also keeps a accurate records of all data entry that otherwise could be misplaced, or lost.

"Does everything we need for our boarding school"

What do you like best?

1. Boardingware is immediate. Once we confirm information in one part - it becomes immediately available to all users so we know what’s going on in real time.

2. Boardingware is user-friendly. Our school staff and students all understand how to use the software, and it is available on multiple platforms for convenience.

3. Boardingware is customizable. Any school can adjust the categories and conditions for management of its students.

What do you dislike?

It’s hard to say what I dislike because usually when there is a problem with the system, Boardingware’s staff is quick to respond and roll out new solutions.

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

We are able to make trips and other off-campus activities much more manageable by keeping everyone aware of student participation. Also for international student leaves we are now able to confirm the location of the person giving permission for the leave. This helps us be sure that emails and permissions that come to us from international parents really do originate from those locations and not from within our own school area.

"Handy Tool"

What do you like best?

While there are some aspects I would still like to see improved, I find that Boardingware is very handy for keeping records for student location with our private school.

What do you dislike?

One of the aspects I would like to see improved is the ability to apply a filter to a live roll so that when one person creates a live roll for the while school, I can filter to the specific house or group that I am attending to.

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

Giving every faculty member the ability to find out where a student is be they on or off campus is a big benefit when there is any kind of emergency.

"Best way to track boarding students "

What do you like best?

I love that I can use my phone to check where students are going at any time of the day. I also love that I can see their leave histories to check who they are going out with and where they frequently go.

What do you dislike?

The thing I dislike the most is that when we have spotty wi-fi or data, it just stops working. Also there's been some issues with "Live Roll" where it would crash and I would lose the entire roll. In addition, I do not like the fact that there is no feature where students can put in a "Holiday Leave" that has multiple destinations and hosts for those destinations. Currently I have my students put in separate Holiday Leaves for each destination they go to which can be a hassle.

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

Accountability and security.

"Great tool for keeping track of students"

What do you like best?

The Boardingware program is a great tool for keeping track of where our students are and where they are going. It is intuitive and easy to use. They are always work to improve the software in order to make the experience more user-friendly.

What do you dislike?

It took many of our students and faculty to get their heads around how to use Boardingware.

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

"Intuitive interface with responsive support team"

What do you like best?

As the app has developed they have used our feedback to create additional capabilities that meet our growing needs. The team has been incredibly responsive with troubleshooting issues, even with a 12 hour time different between our locations.

What do you dislike?

Shockingly, [read: sarcasm] this web-based platform is dependent on wifi connection. This is sometimes an issue as our connectivity on campus can be less than reliable.

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

We are able to monitor our students and communicate with parents about permissions very effectively.

"Boardingware - an answer to may issues"

What do you like best?

The system, although a technical solution, puts student safety first. It allows for easy communication between students, home and school thus promoting a positive school culture. It also allows for efficient check in and headcount. This is particularly important in an emergency situation. The Boardingware team are also great at listening to both support and consider future improvements to the system.

What do you dislike?

That we did not think of this before 2017.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get onboard with a team dedicated to keeping students safe and dedicated to continuous improvement with the product.

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

Greater communication between students, home and school. Improved safeguarding. Improved process for overnight stays and very efficient head count checks. We now know where our students are 24/7.

"3 years in, not looking back"

What do you like best?

User friendly for all parties and increased accountability

What do you dislike?

Needs a better interface for large TV screens. The old web app leave board allows up to have around 40 students on the screen at once but could do with some refinements / updates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to implement, functional and will soon become an integral part of your management system

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

Time effective, less paper trail, more convenient for staff, students and parents, access to pertinent records/information on the go

"1 year user says..."

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Boardingware is how it appeals to visual learners.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the data for some groups has to be manually entered, as we rotate required dinner table groups and our Culinary Faculty Supervisor has to manually enter 200 names every 2-3 weeks. I also dislike how VASTLY different it looks for Apple products versus Android, making training documents VERY hard to create.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plan a few weeks of training and use time before it becomes live with your students. Very hard to play catch up after a few days of not requiring fac and students not to use it, so give time for getting everyone up to speed or they view it as optional and you spend whole year unteaching bad habits

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

We are able to care for and keep track of our students and their habits more effectively using Boardingware. The benefit of having information at my fingertips (Staff App) is huge as a person who is mobile throughout the day (no set classroom or office so no desktop or laptop).

"Boardingware = game changer!"

What do you like best?

I love the accessibility of boardingware. As a weekend administrator on duty who is also a dorm parent it is so convenient to be on my dorm and to be able to see where all of our other students are or to have access to contact information if we need to track them down. It is also great having the phone app for athletic travel.

What do you dislike?

I would love to be able to see groups of students signed out together so that we can bettie monitor if they sign back in together or if there are changes in the patters of their travel. This is something we were able to do on our old paper model and it was often influential in monitoring potential disciplinary issues.

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

We've had a bunch easier time keeping track of our students. Boardingware is also very accessible to our students.

"Still getting used to it"

What do you like best?

Getting easier. Easy for parents to submit passes. Less wasted paper

What do you dislike?

Parents don't call to confirm plans (need to...just in case students know their log-in). Difficult for parents to get started (different skill level with computers). Binder was easier.

The Boardingware Staff App on my personal phone keeps crashing every time I try to access the requests.

Co-workers aren't as good at figuring it out.

"Professional and easy to use"

What do you like best?

Boardingware is a very professional application that does the job much better than a paper-based system. It is not a difficult programme to learn to use and with the phone app you can even do it on your phone for convenience.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about Boardingware.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a programme that lets you do a lot more in a very small amount of time.

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

Keeping a track on boarder whereabouts is key. You can always go back and have a look at any rolls done etc. The record is always there! Parents submit leave rather than us chasing up, which we used to.

"Great user friendly Boarding School Student Manangement system"

What do you like best?

We love boardingware as it gives great access and insight to our students movements and needs, also links our families well to keep in touch with leave requirements.

What do you dislike?

It changes wuite often the look and sometimes the functions, but once you get used to the new functions or looks they are better than previous.

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

Benefits of having medical patterns/histories and leave patterns etc. Really managing to get a great look at the care of our residents and if a pattern emerges with pastoral needs etc.

"Very useful and easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like that it is relatively easy to use, making it easy for us to account for all of our students. It’s definitely better than managing the students using paper sign in and sign out procedures.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to specify who my notifications are sent to and which ones I receive. I would like to just receive them for my dorm, but not the ones for all the other dorms. It would also be useful if we could message students within the app.

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

What do you dislike?

If you mark a pupil in for a roll, they aren't automatically signed in as being back at school. You have to tick a separate box before the roll. I always thought that this should be a default setting.

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

Easier to keep track of where students are supposed to be.
