"Finalsite - Great provider of school software and services"

What do you like best?

What I like the most about the provider is their way of simplifying communications from school to home; involving alumni and the management of complex requirements in terms of computer security.

What do you dislike?

Since the objective is minimalist, it becomes a method that does not allow scalability.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for web solutions as an educational organization, this provider becomes a good option, as it clearly interprets the scope of many institutions and has excellent support.

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

I had the opportunity to implement it in a freelance project that I made for an educational institute in the locality in which I live.

Inquiring I could see that I would provide the necessary tools to create a website that is easy to administer with marketing and recruitment purposes.

"Finalsite: a great timesaver for school web presence"

What do you like best?

The Finalsite infrastructure provides a great foundation for schools to build a great-looking site without a full IT/web development department. The design is modern and clean while catering to the needs of schools.

What do you dislike?

Since the focus is on simplicity in building and managing sites, it can be lacking in more robust options for design and layout.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for web solutions as a school, Finalsite is a clear winner — their understanding of what educational institutions are looking for is a big benefit. The support is fantastic and they really understand how important keeping your site up-to-date and looking good is!

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

Our school's website is beautiful and easy to manage, which is an important non-negotiable for marketing and recruiting purposes. Since the web is the first stop for many prospective families, having a great-looking site is a big deal!

"Finalsite Web host"

What do you like best?

ease of use! Final site makes it incredibly easy to not only make changes or adjustments to your web page, but to create a new page or form for a page itself.

What do you dislike?

I can't seem to find the code in finalsite, which makes it easy, but I personally like to re-code if needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

So far so good! You can really "design" your pages, information and payment forms etc the way you want them to look. It's great!

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

We have a large Parent Association presence and Finalsite makes it easy for even our parents - when given access to make adjustments to Parent Association run events.

"Finalsite Review"

What do you like best?

I enjoy designing websites and applications for different markets. Finalsite has several different widgets, layouts, templates, and designs that allow me to be able to incorporate those into my design and not have to do all the back-end and front-end development. It saves time and helps trigger my own ideas.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the lack of customization ability. I am not able to customize some of the widgets and templates and transform them into the way that is best suited for me and my use cases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for some design templates and management this product is great and easy to use!

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

Finalsite provides benefits to all businesses that would want to own a website or webpages in order to share information with customers or capture data.

Presenting our District Website in an updated, user-friendly, visually inviting manner. Our Website is easy to navigate so our end users and our staff are finding it more functional and responsive than our prior provider was able to deliver.
