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.
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.
Realtime is very responsive and very receptive. It works. My teachers are happy. They say, wow, that’s great.
Of all aspects of Realtime which I feel set it apart from other SIS’s is their accessibility and customer service. The staff at Realtime are truly educational partners in my school community and I cannot say enough good things about their professionalism and commitment to excellence.
I would like to suggest that you look into Realtime. We use this at several school districts including Manchester Regional, Harrington Park, Prospect Park, North Haledon, Wanaque, and Haledon Public. Realtime only services NJ school districts and caters specifically to NJ reporting including and especially NJSmart.
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.
