Thinkwave is very well organized. Setting up a class and monitoring the progression of your student is extremely easy. I really like the tab features at the top of the grade-book. These tabs make navigating the site for teachers, parents, and students a breeze.
What do you dislike?
From a teacher's perspective I've enjoyed using grade book and found it to be a tool that is easy to use and manipulate. I have however received feedback from parent's and student's that the sight can be cumbersome and difficult to use. Parent's have complained that the site doesn't update grades when I update them online. I'm not sure if there is a delay in updating time but having immediate results for my school community is a must.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Grading programs serve the purpose of communicating grades and assessments to parents at home. The problem that this program serves is to bridge that gap of communication that exists between schools and households. The benefits I see from using this program is that I can grade assessments and give families instant feedback on how their students are doing in school. This allows parents to be active participants in their student's educational progress.
