First and foremost, your vendor should provide software that is easy to use. This goes for every student and staff member, no matter what level of technological knowledge they possess. Tasks and access for any info they need should be easily accessible. Essentially, you want every process to be as smooth as possible whether it is admissions or billing. After all, this is the system that everyone will be using everyday. Make sure the vendor guarantees simplicity for all involved.

Customizable Features

Does your school have its own unique challenges? The right SIS vendor will provide a system that has completely customizable features. Essentially, you have control of how you want your system set up. This allows you to fine-tune your modules and features in an ever-evolving world of education.


If your SIS vendor does not offer on-going support, they are not the right vendor for your school. Simply put, on-going support is essential. You want the assurance that 24/7 support is available for any problem that arises, whether its an emergency or a minor hiccup. Problems will arise from time to time. Make sure your vendor still has your back!


Ideally, you want your vendor to be upfront, honest, and reliable. “What you see is what you get” should be their philosophy. Basically, this means no hidden surprises along the way. There should be no hidden fees, no lack of communication, and no struggle for training and implementation. If any of these issues should arise, you need to find a new vendor.
