Huge Time Saver!

What do you like best?

We are able to capture updated information annually, which helps our district have more accurate/current information from families. Each family enters/updates their own data, which saves on typos. Registrars used to have to look through piles of papers to find minor changes, then rekey everything into PowerSchool manually.

What do you dislike?

There is setup required each year for both new and returning student forms. The process takes some time, but it's worth it! The support team works closely with your district/SU during implementation each year. I would recommend you have a team of people in your district/SU to work through the changes each year. Gather feedback from office staff, administrators, and families to help improve your form(s) each year.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended! Our data has far less errors now that we have taken paper registration out of the process.

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

The student/family data is much more accurate and up to date compared to when we were using paper registration forms. We now receive updated data from families annually. In addition to demographic data, we also gather medical and transportation information.

Saved our Staff!

What do you like best?

The simple interface and ease of use. Although it looks simple, it is very powerful and easy to use. You cannot screw up anything.

What do you dislike?

Initial setup is alot of work. Deciding not to have too many questions and mapping the data correctly to your SIS takes time and recommend a team, not just a couple staff members. Get input from staff users and parents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have enough time to properly setup and implement. Do not recommend starting the school year with both New and Returning registration.

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

We are using it for new student and returning student registration. It has decreased errors significantly and increased the efficiency of our staff to get needed/updated information into our SIS system by count day.

Registering students is so much easier now

What do you like best?

Data entry is now done by the parents of our students instead of by us. They used to submit everything on paper, whereafter we entered the data into PowerSchool. Once parents have entered the data into PS Registration, we can send it to PowerSchool with a couple of mouse clicks. It has saved us so much time.

What do you dislike?

The setup is a lot of work. The field names in PS Registration and PS Sis are not always the same, which makes data mapping for API more cumbersome that it needs to be. Granted, Registration used to be Infosnap, which was not tied to PowerSchool, but now that it is part of PowerSchool, I hope they will go to work on streamlining it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It will change your life if you are used to paper forms. Well worth it if you can afford it, but start setting up plenty of time ahead.

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

We use it for new student and returning student registration and information update. It has significantly cut down on paper clutter and data entry. All departments needing the information now have simultaneous access.

Registration Signature

What do you like best?

How easy it is for the parents to use. The information from one student can 'snap' to complete the next students form in the same family. Parents can enroll students from any time. Parents can enroll students from any place as along as they have internet access.

What do you dislike?

That the pay function is per student not per family.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a wonderful product.

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

No more paper. No more sorting. The information is delivered from Registration back to PowerSchool. No more data entry.

PS Registration Review

What do you like best?

Implementation was quick and easy. It didn't take long after the first implementation call until I was creating my forms.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to duplicate my forms. When I was creating a new one, I had to start from scratch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider a demo of the product to see what it is capable of doing for your school.

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

As our PowerSchool admin, I heard many requests for online enrollment. I knew it was above my expertise so turning to something that PowerSchool sells was the only option I wanted to explore. Parents were able to have a successful student enrollment and secretaries were sold on it as soon as they approved the first registration form come through their queue.

PowerSchool Registration

What do you like best?

What I like best about PowerSchool Registration is that we users are able to design/create our own registration forms.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about PowerSchool Registration is the inability to export data for when submissions were received. However, we are not currently using the Signature version. We will be updating to the Signature version for 2017-2018.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go straight to the Signature version. You won't be sorry!

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

We are solving the problem of too much paper use and also more timely data entry into PowerSchool. With PSR, all student data is updated in a far more timely manner.
