What do you like best?

Currently, we use this system for our campus classroom management. I think it's underutilized in many aspects but some nice features are: detailed information about classroom spaces (including pictures, classroom features), actual scheduling details for the rooms, a space to see which rooms are available within certain parameters, a form to submit a room reservation request. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to say because I'm not sure the breadth of what the product can do. I do believe we're underutilizing the features available to us (there's an option to pull up data about room use and historical reservations that could be really interesting). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

This has helped the Registrar's Office manage campus classrooms and meeting spaces. It allows us to better utilize the spaces available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What do you dislike?

The interface can be slow and complicated for new users. It is a job to get setup and implemented, but they are equipped to assist with this. They have a cloud implementation, now that greatly reduces setup and upgrade inefficiencies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ad Astra will require someone with technical knowledge to set up. Their support is also very helpful and friendly. They will assist in getting the setup complete and any issues that the user may have in the future. They have service plans available to maintain and keep the software updated to the newest versions. They are know running from the cloud, which greatly simplifies the initial setup, implementation, and upgrades. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We use the software to optimize our classroom scheduling and also to schedule events. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
