About Edvance

Edvance is a web-based school management solution that allows administrators to manage academic operations and enables interaction between school administration, teachers, parents and students on a single platform, by exchanging information online in a secure way.

It offers features such as course management that includes designing the course details, grade levels, number of class sections and academic reporting; Workload feature that includes the management of individual teacher workloads, work credits, time distribution and academic/ extracurricular task requirements; scheduling module that helps to build customized schedules, assigning location to a class or events, and allowing parents to fix appointments with teachers; Individualized Education Plan (IEP) module that enables the assignment of objectives by analyzing individual student’s needs, and breaking up of objectives into tasks & sub-tasks which can be monitored easily; and teacher gradebook module that facilitates cross-curricular learning by allowing teachers to coordinate inter disciplinary evaluations. Additionally, the product also offers other features such as admissions, student/teachers profiles, attendance, behavior check, curriculum management, gradebook, re-enrollment and student/parent portals, among others.

The software is suited for private and independent K-12 schools. Edvance fosters cooperation by enabling the software innovations created in one school to be shared with other schools, as a collaborative platform.

Comments (Benefits): we were matched with a dedicated support person to guide us through the implementation and he got to learn how our school works.

Reasons for Choosing; the modern look and feel and is very easy to use.

Pros

I'm very happy with Edvance, they were very helpful when we needed to modify the report cards to comply with the Ministry of Education changes due to COVID-19. Their support technicians are very nice, good listeners and are doing an amazing work for us. Earlier this year, they completed a re-enrollment report that allowed me to see completed and in progress forms so I could keep track of our process.

Most recently, I was able to finish scheduling courses in one day! If you are looking for a student information system that helps you save time and bring processes online, I highly recommend them.

Cons

The learning curve that comes with a new way of doing things

The Edvance team has worked incredibly hard to get to know the intricacies of Buffalo Prep and it has made all the difference. They have showed that they support our mission as a non-profit academic enrichment program to help underrepresented youth achieve academic success and have been working with us to implement a customized system that allows for more time spent focusing on the students, and less on entering data.

Pros

My colleagues at Buffalo Prep work incredibly hard to help the kids in our community... but so much of their energy has been used to try and store data in excel in the past. Now, with Edvance, they are able to focus more on helping students and less on data entry. Buffalo Prep has many intricacies but the Edvance team has been incredibly accommodating and has met our needs as a uniquely operating organization.

Cons

I wish that we had come across Buffalo Prep sooner in our search for a database system!

This is my schools first full year with Edvance and it has begun to transform how we communicate with parents and manage out curriculum. I have worked with several other LMS' and I can tell you that in the past I would have been left feeling frustrated due to lack of support and flexability. However, working with Edvance leaves me feeling excited and confident that the customizations we are building will make communication stronger, processes smoother, and jobs easier. The support of the Edvance team is unlike anything I have ever seen and it has allowed me as an administrator to help people be more efficient. Once you start working with this company, you will wonder what took you so long to start.

Pros - Easy to use,
- Flexible and adaptable to our school needs,
- Very quick response time to question asked

Cons- I would like to see this program "talk with" our accounting and donation management programs.

Edvance was our first school software program. This program made life so much easier for our teachers and administrators. We are able to grow each year with this program as they continue to refine and add features. Since we have both elementary and high school programs in both languages, we needed a program that was very flexible. Edvance was able to tailer make their program to meet our needs.

All student and staff data is compiled into on spot making it so effect to recall relevant information about current and past students.
The service has been outstanding. The support has be amazing. I felt very comfortable calling, emailing, or having virtual meetings if I needed clarification
A wide variety of modules makes it easy to cater to all of our needs
One con that is of note is the attendance module. The staff at our school has told me that it is time consuming and not very efficient
