    Tuio allowed us to streamline our enrolment and tuition payment processes. We are moving away from handling post-dated cheques to online direct payments. This is both a better user experience for our parents as well as saving time and generating efficiencies in the administration. It really is a Win Win!

    Pros

    What I like most about Tuio is that it is built from the ground up as a payment software, instead of an added-on after thought. The system is intuitive and simple to navigate while being powerful on the backend to support our needs. Our parents have had nothing but good things to say about how much they like the system.

    Cons

    There are a few features which would be nice to have such as the ability to modify the payment amounts once an invoice has been issued; however, Tuio has been very responsive to suggestions and is continually publishing new features/functionality.

    Hi Glenn,

    Thank you for the great feedback, which we are taking into account for the next release phases.

    Reasonable Tuition Payment Platform

    Reviewed on 19/05/2022

    The setup process was relatively easy and the customer support is great.

    Pros

    I like the invoicing, payment options and discount options. I feel they have really thought of every option needed to process payment for Tuition and Registration Fees.

    Cons

    I was very excited to offer our parents a place to pay their tuition and enroll, all in one place. When I created the enrollment forms, I was very disappointed with the lack to customize and making the forms look beautiful. It seems like they forgot that schools might need a different way to handle field trips. There is also little customization when it comes to automating messages after a form is completed.

    Reasons for Switching to TUIO

    Tuio was by far the most reasonable product. I was quoted over 10k for our school by other tuition/enrolment platforms.

    Response from TUIO Payments

    Hi Shari, thank you for the helpful review. This week we added a new custom field that should give you more flexibility to present information on the form and add various elements that should come in handy. The field is called 'Content', please give it a try or reach out to [email protected] for more info. Our forms can be used for field trips, I would love to hear more and will contact you on that piece. You can customize the message sent out when reviewing the registrations after a form is completed, but I'll see what we can add for the automated element as well!

    Confusing

    Confusing.

    Confusing.

    Pros

    Recordkeeping. It is great to have easy access to receipts.

    Cons

    Perhaps it is partly the fault of the school that is making me use the software, but the payment type option is confusing. Why is “cash or cheque” even an option when this is supposed to encourage online transactions. Also, my school has had to send multiple invoices for seemingly the same things because of monthly billing? I’d actually rather go back to submitting cheques and receiving emailed receipts.

    Response from TUIO Payments

    Hello Brenna,

    Thank you for your review and feedback. The cash/cheque option is provided as additional flexibility for parents who would not want to pay online but we appreciate your point and we might disable that option from the parent interface in order to further encourage online transactions.
    Your other point seems to have to do with how your school operates the software so that's a point we'll have to review with them.

    Overall, the experience with TUIO has been exceptional.

    Pros

    The attendance feature is very simple to use. The added Covid-19 Screening feature was an absolute life saver this past 18 months. The payment program is very helpful to see what monies are coming in and who is behind with their payments. The TUIO staff handle any NSF problems, so there is no need for awkward conversations with your clients. The support staff are amazing and answer and solve all of our questions usually the same day. My staff are very happy with this product and we would recommend it to anyone looking to streamline their daycare or private school operations.

    Cons

    I wish that there was a way to merge the spreadsheets with our Quickbooks accounting program.

    Response from TUIO Payments

    Thank you for the kind review Lori! We hear your wish and are looking to integrate more fully with QB for accounting purposes.

    Overall it has provided a fast, easy way to organize and charge for our enrolments in various programs.

    Pros

    As enrolment and payment processing software it's very user friendly and when needed, the customer service is fast and helpful. It is easy to manage and change invoices and refund full or partial invoices. The way registrations are set up is flexible with multiple options.

    Cons

    As an SIS it is not fully developed. There are issues with enrolments in different programs causing duplicate students. Each enrolment is linked only to the parent who pays the invoice.

    Response from TUIO Payments

    Thank you for the helpful review! Be on the lookout for other SIS features in the near future.
