What do you like best?

The Illinois Chapter of the National School Public Relations Association (INSPRA) worked with eSchoolView on developing a new website, which is now a year old. The development process was very smooth; eSchoolView listened to our needs and helped us develop a site that is a hub for INSPRA members to connect. Their work in helping build a graphically appealing site with the most efficient and effective navigation, and their guidance and support of site administrators in continuing to build the site, has been outstanding.

What do you dislike?

Copying and pasting text often makes for a mix of fonts that are hard to fix. Would love to see a "remove formatting" button on the editor to fix this problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

INSPRA wanted a website that reflected our organization - one that supports and connects professional communicators in the education field. The "members need help" feature that eSchoolView built specifically for us has been highly praised and widely used by members, allowing members to share ideas, experience and knowledge, and be more connected.

What do you like best?

It's great for organization and keeping all of my forms in one place. I am a coach so it's nice to have all of my athletic forms, emergency forms, payment forms, fundraising forms all in one place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Vote it is easy to use, there are a lot of buttons. It took me a while to really get the hang of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely go through the tutorials and learn how to take advantage of all of the aspects of the software. There are definitely a lot of things it could do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

My biggest problem was paper. I was using tons of paper and having multiple file cabinets full of forms. You think this allowed me to cold completely virtual and do all of my forms online. Saving trees in the process.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the ease of editing information, adding and removing pictures and links. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We have really increased sales at our spirit store by launching the online store through eSchoolView. The parent portal is great to post school information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think the parent-facing interface would look better if there were more options to customize. I feel like it looks a bit too much like an amateur website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We needed a central location for parents to be able to go on and see what was going on at the school. It was an interactive way to post about upcoming events and post any emergency news like school delays due to weather. The parents know to look at the site to see any updates.

What do you like best?

Their customer service is the best, bar none. There was one Sunday night when I needed to put up an emergency announcement, but the power was down at the school and I couldn't log into the system. I called ON A SUNDAY NIGHT and someone quickly called me back. They put the message up for me, and then provided a way for me to log in around the LDAP. If I have an emergency, they take care of it quickly. Even routine items are handled efficiently. Great staff, great service.

Uploading documents, movies, etc. is also much better than other providers I've seen. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't come up with anything. I am very happy with the product and its support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We switched over on July 1, so we're coming up on a year. I'm very happy with the product and service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We have been working with eSchoolView for nearly 4 years and have been very pleased with their services. Their web design process was seamless and they created a really beautiful website for us at a very reasonable price. The website has been easy to customize and keep current and has changed to meet our changing needs. We also use their Online Store service which has been wonderful for managing sales and fundraisers efficiently and giving families the convenience of paying online. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish that eSchoolView was more intuitive for teachers to use. Most educators are families with blogging platforms like Weebly or Wordpress, and would be more likely to use eSchoolView for their teacher website if the content management more closely mirrored those formats. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We needed a website that would meet the needs of our elementary school, where information needs to be shared and edited frequently and instantaneously. eSchoolView has been a great match for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The design of our website is polished and appealing, we have received many compliments on the appearance and navigation of our website. The support and design team worked a great deal to help us get just the look and feel that we requested.

I also like the ability to have a mobile site as well. We still need to tweak the access occasionally as we find issues with it, but support is always willing to work with us when we find issues with mobile access. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am hoping to improve the synchronization of calendars between Google calendars and the website calendars so they are more user friendly and parents. In addition, our athletic calendars are in Roeing Athletic Scheduler, I'd like to see improvements with this interface. We are able to publish all of our calendars, and support has been great in making sure they are accessible both in the mobile and web browser. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Design and desire to meet customers needs exceeded expectations

Look at other school district pages using eSchoolview, as well as other CMS systems

Talk with end users at these districts Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The biggest challenge our parents and students face is finding one location to get all of the information they need, which can be found in many different software interfaces. I would eventually like our website to become a portal for parents to have access to everything they need: news, calendar, grades, cafeteria, transportation, etc.

In addition, we have been able to push information out to the community using the social link buttons on our website without having to have a social media presence which has been a positive for our school district. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The people at eSchoolView are top notch. The customer service is unparalleled. Their communication is great. There was never a time during the process I felt things were going poorly, I always had a positive feeling about the website. All of my questions and concerns were answered and addressed within 24 hours but usually within an hour. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing right now. I look forward to working with eschoolview more in the future. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The process will go as fast or as slow as you want it to. ESchoolview followed my pace every step of the way from initial design to website launch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our website was out of date and needed updating. It was also extremely hard to update and maintain. After moving to eSchoolView, all of that has been fixed. Updating the site is a breeze and it looks fantastic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The quick-edit feature is fast and easy for teacher's to post homework on a daily basis. Takes no time at all. I can post to the site and then within seconds, I am able to view the change. The editing interface is similar to MS Word, so that is another plus for faculty and staff editing their pages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only component we would like to see added in the future is the addition of a "contact form" for parents to communicate with teachers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Love the news component on our site. Very appealing to visitor's who get to see a short "blurb" about news and then can click "read more" to read the entire article. This is keeping our district informed of events & special happenings in our district that we would like to share. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
