Student Information System

Since some of you have/work for a school, I have several questions about SIS:

  • What SIS does your school use?
  • What are it’s strengths?
  • What are it’s weaknesses?
  • Do you plan to change SIS, and why?

Do you have experience with any of the following?

  • Sycamore
  • Gradelink
  • Rediker
  • Jupiter Ed

We were on Rediker for years, switched to FACTS SIS this year.
We like the one interface better in FACTS vs multiple apps in Rediker.
Still learning FACTS

Were there others you looked at before choosing FACTS?

We are also using FACTS SIS. We have been on the system since the early days of Renweb. The web interface is much nicer to use as opposed to the desktop application.

The great thing with FACTS is that it is built on SQL, so you can basically interface with about anything if you know how to do queries against the database.

The downside is that they might hold your information hostage and not help interface with another software if they have something comparable in place already.
