Lakeside Montessori Schools have been very happy with QManager.
QManager is a great tool for managing signing children in/out of school, roll call, printable reports with signatures and instant notifications to parents. At our school we have a drop off/pick up service and having the parents be able to sign their child in/out on their phones helps our driveway run smoothly. When we have needed to close the school early due to weather conditions, we were able to send an alert to parents very quickly. I have even sent alerts from my phone when I was away from the school.
We have had some issues over the years with some functions not working at different times, but the QManager team has always responded quickly and done their best to make changes when needed.
[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been very easy to work with. If we have ever had a problem or question he has made himself available by email or phone. We have enjoyed working with him and know that other schools would as well.
We love the ease of having our parent sign in and out using this simple software. This allows us to stay in compliance with the state and have accurate records of attendance.
The "sign in" and "sign out" button can sometimes getting confusing for parents and they hit the wrong one, which creates incorrect data.
QManager has really improved our dismissal process by adding a layer of accountability.
One thing we love about QManager is that we have the list of Authorized Pickups readily available for the students.
Only allows names as description of Authorized Pickups, meaning that if you have two family members with the same name, you may click on wrong name. I wish it had a way of adding a picture to the Authorized Pickup information.
QManager is a wonderful program that helps us easily tack our students as they arrive and depart!
It streamlines our sign in/sign out procedure, and notifies us as parents approach which allows us to get the children to their cars quickly and expedites the dismissals process.
There are some occasional bugs and hiccups with names being dropped, app not loading, etc. but the developers work quickly to correct them.
Being one of the original users, we so appreciate the improvements that have been made.
It has been very simple to set up, adjust as needed and fits all our needs right now.
Easier way for our students to be signed in and out, provides a signature, helps control authorized pick ups and timestamps when a student leaves for billing purposes.
How quick customer support is respond and how sign outs accurately timestamp when kids are signed in or out.
A suggestion would be that when a student is signed out, their name disappears from the list. This way parents won't have to scroll down the list and we can see what children are left in the building.
