What do you like best?

The integration of our Inquiry, Application, Enrollment, Tuition Management, Student, Parent, Family Information System, Gradebook, Google Classroom Integration, reporting tools, etc. Customer support is typically VERY good. If anything is unknown, an answer will be found and someone will get back with you. FACTS has helped us BUILD or find ways to do just about ANYTHING we want or need to do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Very little. Anything we WANT to accomplish can almost be done, or an account rep or technical support WILL assist you. We are still learning how to best integrate our After School program and this is somewhat USER error / learning curve not FACTS issue. Our tuition based after school program could benefit from working MORE LIKE tuition. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Integration of just about EVERYTHING. Google Classroom integration with the gradebook has been EXTREMELY helpful. Inquiry through enrollment is rather smooth, just takes a diligent study to learn all the ins and outs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

FACTS integrates with our LMS very well. Although we do not record grades in FACTS, it makes the transition incredibly easy. We use Canvas and the integration, mostly works well every quarter. We also use FACTS for families to register, track information, and pay their tuition. For us this is a big deal. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At times, there are too many options to get certain places...at times there are excessive steps, just to get to attendance, etc... for example, when I need a roster of students, we must go through multiple steps to get there. I believe there are multiple people that would have trouble if they are not as familiar with technology. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our school utilizes FACTS for tracking behavior which is super beneficial. In other words, there are multiple people that track, write up and access student behavior accounts. This is the way we communicate between teachers. This is also the way our counselor does scheduling. We are able to easily schedule students in a way that is useful and efficient. The best places for analytics is this application Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Everything I need for good communication between the school and parents is in one place: assignments, grades, extracurricular participation, calendar & events, tuition, lunch & other billing, communication with students & parents by class, activity, grade level, interest. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If family data is not complete or correct, some functionality breaks down. For instance, when a parent doesn't set up a tuition payment account (and pays directly to the school), this creates problems down the road with reenrollment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Everything in one system. I love that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Everything is easily accessible by using the bar on the left that is categorized and alphabetized to your needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have heard teachers and parents complain about the grade cards and how the percentage shows up (it is confusing and should be optional). I do not think they should have to purchase a "customized" version in order to get rid of the confusing percentages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend making the parent's side of the report cards easier to understand, manage and read. Many parents have already complained that it is very confusing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I liked how it is easy to access all of my students information: phone numbers, emails and schedules. It makes my job easier, as an educator. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like attendance, security groups and the general information about the students. And I also like the ability to add our own questions and fields. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Web Forms and pulling reports! It has some option that we use but they are not the easiest way to use it or doesn't give you all the options that you would think they should have. And also the fact that every year they change the interface without telling us and it takes forever to find what we are looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check really well that this is what you want and need. I don't know if there is something better but I am not happy with it at all and I know better than their customer support.... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It has all our student information in it and parents' communications. We thought that it will integrate families with our donor database but it is not working properly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like that Renweb has everything I need. It has attendance, lesson planning, student information, email- everything in one! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Very rarely, but sometimes, I will enter a grade and it doesn’t save. That can be frustrating. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It’s great! I really would implement it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It definitely benefits teachers when we need information about a student really fast. In case of emergency, it’s really, really beneficial to know who has custody of a child, etc. I can just open the app and see that information! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the easy access I have to put in grades for my students, and also to communicate with parents and other teachers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I sometimes find it hard to calculate grades at the end of nine weeks and semesters. Some of the features that should be in more logical locations are else where. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take time to go through the training to use renweb. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It’s wonderful that my students and parents can see assignments and grades as soon as they are loaded. It creates an easy route for communication. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I absolutely appreciate being able to post grades, attendance, lesson plans and the ability to send emails to parents and entire classes. It makes communication easily accessible for everyone on their own time schedule. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that their are many times access to RenWeb on an iPad is limited or won’t work. Often pages will not pull up, and if you have limited access to the internet, it can be unusable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Must always have access to your desktop (easier to fully implement) or always have internet connection. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

One of the biggest issues in schools in communication between the parent and teacher. Often parents must rely on their child for updates on grades or what is due in the near future. RenWeb alleviates that issue and gives us an opportunity to work as a team for the benefit of the students we work with.

When a child is absent, they can access lesson plans if the teacher and/or school utilize this option. Grades can be posted even before papers are passed back. The greatest asset of this program is instant access to an ever demanding clientele. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that the grade book auto-saves while entering grades. It creates less worry for me. I also appreciate the ease with which I can take attendance with the auto fill options. This works well for lunch count as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that even though classes may share the same assignments, they all have to be entered for each section. I don't like that report card comments do not have options available for selection or that the page does not auto-save. I dislike that parents have to take a few extra steps to see their student's grade break down. It would be nice if there were more sort features for missing assignments and such. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This program is definitely worth it. Once you get familiar with it, you'll for sure appreciate it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I use RenWeb to take daily attendance, enter lunch counts and record grades. I like that it's available anywhere and doesn't require me to carry anything around. I love that it enables parents to stay involved as they also have access to the grade book as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The addresses and names of parents are all in the system. I don't have to worry about sending the email to the wrong parents. I hit correspondence and the addresses are automatically entered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a user/adminstrator, I like that you can view students by grade, teacher, homeroom, schedule, as well as students' contact information. Renweb is a great resource for front office staff who regularly make changes and update contact information. In the academic setting, users will make the most use out of Renweb. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I honestly do not like the email feature on Renweb. When you click the email tab, it opens up whatever your predesignated browser is to the email features. This feature seems a bit outdated and tiresome to click and drag recipients of the email. I am sure there is a way to link it to Outlook, but I have not figured that out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend having someone more experienced with RenWeb to walk you through the various features enough times for you to feel confident using email and viewing student information. It is crucial to have student lists, but I could not figure out how to do that without consulting and I have used RenWeb for a year and a half. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

RenWeb is a major solution for organizing student data, contact information, grades, attendance, schedules, and running reports. While I do not utilize all of those features, I have become more familiarized with RenWeb for it to be very useful. I am not sure how I would function as a school counselor without it. The benefits are that you can access cumulative information without pulling the student's folder. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that our entire school district is accessible in one program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how it seems that code is being written as we go, that we were sold on a contract with an unfinished product, and how dependent updating parent info is on the office staff. Parents have zero ability to correct miskeyed data or update phone numbers, emails, or addresses without contacting someone at the school with the permissions to edit the incorrect information. Parents also constantly complain about its difficulty to use, unappealing layout, and the fact that the parent app costs money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Solves the problem of using a unified system across the district to track grades and build communication databases. All benefits are related to that Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Anytime I can save settings or create shortcuts I appreciate it. FACTS (Formerly RenWeb) allows you to save settings, to copy assignments to other classes, and now we are able to include long, personalized narrative report card comments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that when I try to use the arrow key to scroll through a comment, the program will treat that

keystroke like a "Tab" and move to the next cell. Sometimes this has led me to add text meant for one student in another student's grading comment area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I can see that Renweb is trying to offer more capabilities that people like about Google Classroom or other cloud-based services. I like the ability to save documents to the server and re-use them for future courses, or add attachments to lesson plans. I wish that I could have something that meshed the things I love about Google Classroom with the grading/student billing/medical information/attendancethat FACTS SIS offers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I like the ability to access all aspects of a student's information that I need. Being able to sort students by grade before creating an email is very helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love that RenWeb allows parents 24/7 access to student grades and missing work. Students cannot use the excuse that they didn't know they had a low grade. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The features are not always the most intuitive, and this has caused a lot of frustration for the teachers who are not very tech savvy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If possible, the person who will be overseeing the technical side of RenWeb should talk to someone from a school who has already been using RenWeb to find out what was the most difficult adjustment for their school. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

RenWeb streamlines our grade reporting process and communication with parents. Parents, students, and administrators have 24/7 access to grades and lesson plans. It is easy for teachers and administrators to find contact information for parents as well as scheduling and demographic information for students. It also provides a platform for keeping student information in one location. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It streamlines communication between teachers and parents, students, and other staff by allowing teachers to send messages to individuals or groups, to upload lesson plans which both parent and student have access to, and to access their own or their students' schedules at any time.

There are often technical difficulties that arise while using the software and it is not always user-friendly. When sending emails, the webpage often times out, causing everything you had written to be lost and forcing you to write it all over again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Communication is very important in primary and secondary education to maintain a good relationship with students and parents, and to provide a quality education, and therefore having a software that facilitates that process has been very beneficial for our school.
