PNPS Admin gives his thumbs up to Edana

5.0 10 months ago

Comments: Easy to navigate once you have had your training and support is also a message away if you forgot a few steps etc. This definitely made our Administration work a lot easier

Pros:

The Security features where not everyone needs everything you only enable what is relevant to that staff member. Made the teachers lives easier with attendance records and reporting systems.

Cons:

It took us a while to use all features, some were more difficult to understand than other's but in the 3+ years that we have been using Edana the Upgrades has really been positive

Why you should serously consider using EdAdmin

5.0 12 months ago

Comments: For the 10+ years I have used EdAdmin, I found that the support was superb. They listen to my concerns and needs and where possible, they resolve those without charging but also when there is a need to work with a consultant, the turnaround time is quick. Secondly, EdAdmin gives you as an Admin a whole range of tools you can use to make simple but meaningful changes to how the system works for you. Most MIS do not give you the freedom to make even minor changes without contacting them. I have also grown and evolved with the system and find it very relevant to today's educational needs.

Pros:

When we first enrolled to use EdAdmin, we received extensive training and guidance on how to set it up, In fact someone was sent over to help us with that and since then we have enjoyed a great relationship with the organisation regarding support but also in terms of financing. They listen to us and offer amazing discounts. One of the things I like most about EdAdmin is first it is really easy to use and get around but mostly it is fully integrated and as such from one module you can literally reach any part of the system, for example to get to the timetables you do not need to go to the timetable, you can reach there by selecting a student and you will see all that information. I also quite like the numerous reports one is able to generate from any module and the ability to export and import data which is very much simplified. Also you will find that EdAdmin can work with you to customise the system to the prefered colours.

Cons:

One of the things that sometimes bothers me is that it can be overwhelming. Sometimes I wish it was simpler but we get all of it and for one who is not used to MIS, you may find that the system overloads you. The other concern I have is some of the information may be hard to change without contacting developing. I wish I was able to fully customise it to my very specific needs.

Intuitive and easy to use this integrated school management software is the best. So much information is available using the extensive array of report formats. The ability to upload data from spreadsheets, or download into spreadsheets, adds to the flexibility of the product. Support is excellent and is provided by knowledgeable and friendly consultants.

Cons:

Customisation can take time and is sometimes costly.
