Most importantly, parents have instant access to the information they need to stay informed, and make effective decisions regarding their child. Without Realtime, if parents needed information on their child’s progress, accommodations, or records, they would need to make a call and schedule an appointment. There are just so many hours in a day for teachers. With limited resources, schools often run into a situation where they are unable to efficiently satisfy the demands of the parents. Subsequently, a rift forms, and it is a rift that is very difficult to mend.
With Realtime, parents are more informed, more involved in their children’s education, and able to assist their children to become better students. With everyone’s time seemingly getting shorter, parents can concentrate on what’s really important, and schools get better results for everyone.
Parents’ view of the school often boils down to one crucial element: how easy is it for them to obtain the information they want when they want it. Traditionally, if parents needed information on their child’s progress, accommodations, or records, they would need to make a phone call, and more than likely, schedule an appointment. With limited resources available, schools often run into a situation where they are unable to efficiently satisfy the demands of the parents. Subsequently, a rift forms, and it is a rift that is very difficult to mend. With Realtime, we address the problem at the source, by keeping parents more informed, more involved, and ultimately happy with the schooling their child is receiving.

Most importantly, parents have instant access to the information they need to stay informed and make effective decisions regarding their child.
I still get vendors calling me up. I tell them, don't even start pitching me - I have no interest. I use the best product that's out there today there’s no reason to bring you in. They ask me, what are you using? I say Realtime. And they say, oh, OK, like there's no reason to even continue speaking to me if I already found Realtime.
Whenever I call the Customer Support Center they have gone out of their way many times and have always come through for us. It is so nice to know that you can count on someone to follow through. If makes our school feel connected to Realtime. I don't think many schools can say that about their student software providers. Much Thanks.
I personally have had a wonderful experience with the tech support from the staff at Realtime. It's been a pleasure working with such helpful, knowledgeable and friendly people. Thanks so much.
We currently have been using all of the available modules for over 3 years now. This has both saved us a considerable amount of money as well as vertically integrated student and staff record keeping. NJSMART and federal/state submissions are (literally) as easy as running a report of existing data in their system.
Having worked with both PowerSchool, Genesis, and Realtime there is no comparison. Realtime, for just the reporting, customer service and technical support blow the doors off the competition. In my opinion, it is the best out there.
I wanted to thank all of you at Realtime. Due to your constant support, state requirements knowledge, insight into school necessities and an unending willingness to listen to suggestions or requests, you have continually made my job easier and more efficient. Thank you!
