I'm looking to replace our current system, which includes an attendance platform and a bunch of manual coordination, with a SIS provider/tool.
I've been just finding options through Google and a few other contacts in the ed industry, but I'm relatively new and my boss doesn't know of many other options either. The main goal we want in our next SIS is attendance recording + tracking. On top of that, we would a few things:
Some type of area/portal in the tool where a variety of information would be displayed like document links, survey links, to-do lists, etc
Other information of students. Think of things like forms submitted and completed, student's roster, etc
Integration with Salesforce. Ability to read and write data from Salesforce would be huge. We want Salesforce to be our single source of truth, but know it's going to be hard to enforce that when our partners/front-line staff are inputting data into the SIS
Ability to integrate with 3rd party survey administrators. We coordinate survey administration and completion, and since everyone prefers to go digital, we want to be able to have a student or staff be able to click on a link within the SIS to take a survey
I know this is asking for a lot, but I honestly think most of it should be fairly in-scope for a good SIS. I'm not looking for the absolute best SIS, but just a good product from a good company with decent support. So I'd love any suggestions
