What do you like best?
The design of our website is polished and appealing, we have received many compliments on the appearance and navigation of our website. The support and design team worked a great deal to help us get just the look and feel that we requested.
I also like the ability to have a mobile site as well. We still need to tweak the access occasionally as we find issues with it, but support is always willing to work with us when we find issues with mobile access.
What do you dislike?
I am hoping to improve the synchronization of calendars between Google calendars and the website calendars so they are more user friendly and parents. In addition, our athletic calendars are in Roeing Athletic Scheduler, I'd like to see improvements with this interface. We are able to publish all of our calendars, and support has been great in making sure they are accessible both in the mobile and web browser.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The biggest challenge our parents and students face is finding one location to get all of the information they need, which can be found in many different software interfaces. I would eventually like our website to become a portal for parents to have access to everything they need: news, calendar, grades, cafeteria, transportation, etc.
In addition, we have been able to push information out to the community using the social link buttons on our website without having to have a social media presence which has been a positive for our school district.
