Demographics and Sibling Preference
One of Cleveland’s most frequent responsibilities includes running demographic reports. With the electronic forms solutions’ ability to export data from its electronic forms, she is able to instantly gather this data.
“It is very easy to sort information and order it just the way I need it in seconds,” said Cleveland.
“If I needed to search for a child a particular grade, then that information is already there rather than me trying to flip through [physical] documents. It’s 100 percent more convenient.”
Along with general application information, eStem’s forms also include an area to indicate if a sibling is already a student. Having the sibling preference information readily available has helped in identifying potential future students.
Anytime something needs to be altered with the system, Cleveland has always received timely service from the support staff at Softdocs.
“If I need to make changes or have an issue, I call the support team and they make the changes for me online. They do a great job of getting my questions answered or issues resolved in a timely manner,” Cleveland commented.
Before Softdocs, printed records were stored in a large filing cabinet after being manually typed into a database. Now, Cleveland says, “all the information I need is right at my fingertips.” Ironically, she doesn’t have to lift a finger to get it there.
“I have been very happy with Softdocs and would certainly recommend using Softdocs to other schools,” said Cleveland. “Our system is so much more organized.”
