AEC Academia Overview

What is AEC Academia?

AEC Academia is a cloud-based learning center management software designed to help educational institutes manage faculty, students, and courses. Features include class scheduling, grants administration, scholarship and payroll management, data import/export, and financial reporting.

Using AEC Academia, organizations can handle candidate enrollment and plan various types of courses such as group, private, laboratory, corporate, or online courses. Administrators can generate graphical reports to track the number of admissions, membership expiration, enrollment reasons, and more. Teachers can also manage multiple student groups, create follow-up schedules, organize learning sessions, and generate activity reports. The platform lets instructors track attendance, monitor late entries, conduct exams, and evaluate students by grades or skills.

AEC Academia provides an accounting module, which allows institutes to monitor various billing and payment requirements including direct bank payments, installments, quotes, credits, and refunds. With the communication module, teachers can create email templates using a visual editor, track the number of sent emails, and configure automated alerts to notify students and parents about upcoming classes or pending fees. The software also helps event organizers plan cultural agendas, add participants, and process ticket sales and payments.

A big game changer

I really recommend this Software. My organization was still dealing with Excel tables when I was appointed. Other Alliance française were also looking into other management software: some decided to go with Hénaff, some chose Alisoft. I wasn't convinced and I kept searching. I came into AEC, and a couple years later, the other organizations with Henaff or Alisoft are now using AEC.

The support team is quite responsive overall - however, a lot of time could be saved on both ends with more robust systems and procedures in place.

Pros

The ATL team is very proactive. Every step of the way, I could count on them to help implement the software in my organization, learn how to use it, improve the features with my feedback over the years. Arc-en-Ciel Academia drastically changed the way I could manage my organization, giving me critical data to analyse our activity.
Easy to use, intuitive, it provided a professionnal image to all our clients (student learning French, but also partners, Government entities, etc.)

Cons

I think the button's icons could get a more modern look, that would also help with finding the action or info we're looking for, but overall this is not really a problem.
One small glitch that happens here and there: sometime the last two digits of the numbers of the last columns can't be displayed... Resolution issue maybe? You have to play with column' width, or remove a column or two from the table.

The support team is quite responsive overall - however, a lot of time could be saved on both ends with more robust systems and procedures in place.

Pros

It allows us to centralize our classes, our products and our events.

Cons

Simple features such as implementing a discount, removing or moving a student from a class or basic accounting transactions can become very complicated and loss of time/productivity.
The reporting feature has bugs and we are unable to pull more in depth reporting that would be relevant to our business.

Pros

Easy to use for teachers' schedules, to book classrooms, to create new courses, facilitate enrollment via the extranet, create store credit notes, centralise the teachers's information, share information on courses and students easily

Cons

I'm having a hard time with the periods , and as a consequence with reporting (I think I did not set them up correctly at the beginning), but we are working on solving that issue

Pros

The software is easy to use for normal users.
The visual is simple.
The support team is very helpful.

Cons

For more advanced features (admin), it's more complicated and some of features are not apparent so we usually need assistance from the support team. Luckily, they are most of the time present and helpful.
Some features could be less complicated and the admin should have more power on them.

Great!

Pros

Extranet, hours management, ergonomy,

Cons

When creating admin hours, we can't schedule different days and times (periodicity), we have to redo the same operation all over.

Can,t choose the course color on the schedule, problem of visibility when two different courses next to each other.
