We have 3 reviews for Gradelink. The average overall ratings is 5.0 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: Gradelink, as an SIS, it meets all of the needs of our institution. It is highly customizable and adaptable. the Mandarin language supports helps our international families as well. We had no need to explore any alternatives because they are constantly in touch with us asking what new needs we have, what dreams we have and I have seen them implement changes to their system right before my eyes to meet our individual needs!!
Pros: his software allows our staff to work smarter not harder. The easier the SIS, the easier it becomes to start a new school year because so much info carries over. The information that parents and students have is presented differently because each user has a different goal for using the software. Gradelink makes it easy to integrate all aspects of the education environment into one easy to use vehicle.
Cons: We've all gotten used to MS and gsuite email products, and email from the Gradelink platform doesn't have all everything the users find in dedicated email systems. For grades, it is live right away--there isn't a way to post grades, but not publish them until a later time. That might be desirable in some isolated cases, so much of a drawback all things considered.
Overall Opinion: I have been super happy with Gradelink, from usability to customer service when there is a question or concern. The team is always polite and efficient. I would like to see some of the"extras" included in our package, simply from a budgetary perspective. We're a small school and your tuition/fees program is excellent, I'd like to see if it more effective that what we are using now. I highly recommend Gradelink and have spoken to other administrators about our success with the program.
Pros: I wanted a program that would be easy to implement, easy to use, and affordable. After reviewing a several systems, Gradelink was the best. After 5 years of using Gradelink, I've found new staff members are able to jump in quickly, parents love the ease of communication and availability of attendance, grades, and comments concerning their children. We also use the "news" page to keep parents up to date with reminders and current events. I use the program for snow cancel!
Cons: There are some things that take me time to access, like a quick attendance report on an individual student or a readable transcript that is inclusive of attendance, but a part of that might be my lack of knowledge. Support has been rad in helping us customize report cards, something we could not do independently. Some of the staff is still reluctant to use the planning program to its full use, I know if there is an overarching reason or
Overall Opinion: We have found Gradelink to be superior to other SIS programs we've used in the past. The cost is more practical and there are very few glitches. It works well across PC and Mac platforms. Very helpful and friendly. They have a good help section and customer service answers right away . Good product!
Pros: It's so easy to use. I love it. The functionality and price point is great. The part I like MOST is the support. Whenever we have a question or issue, Gradelink customer service/technical support representatives are helpful and friendly.
Cons: They are still making some parts so sometimes a feature is not ready yet. For instance, last year we needed the a sign in/out feature but it was still being created but this year we are using it!
