Everything is going VERY WELL with our conferencing software. Receiving a lot of positive feedback from our parents and teachers as well.

From a blog entry written by one of our customers:
Nothing we have done in the last year and a half has generated the enthusiastic response that the Parent-Teacher conference scheduler has. Go figure! ...
It was actually easier than we thought it would be. After a few phone calls to other schools, I had the names of a couple of on-line programs, but one stood out with wonderful recommendations: Virtual Paragon. After blowing us away with a test demo in the late spring, Virtual Paragon had our allegiance.

From an article about Virtual Paragon at TechLEARNING.com
written by one of our customers:
We had incredibly positive feedback. One parent wrote that "this was not just a good idea but a fabulous one." Another excitedly commented that "the system worked GREAT! Parents were not racing from room to room trying to get appointments." The consensus was that "the system worked perfectly and was painless" and "that it beats the hell out of running around frantically putting one's name on sign-up sheets."
A.K. & L.P., Jun 2007
Teachers also loved the new system. ...
Most importantly, teachers found that because parents had scheduled ahead of time, they arrived much happier and less frazzled. The less frantic pace seemed to allow more focus on the actual conversation and not on the scheduling.
Administratively, the system worked wonders. ...
We had record numbers of parents attend, and yet the day was smoother then ever.
... Ultimately, the technology helped impact not only the scheduling, but the quality of the conferences themselves. Both teachers and parents reporting feeling more at ease and less harried, allowing the focus to be where it should be, on the students. The transition from a manual signup process to the online program raised the belief in the competency and effectiveness of technology. It took a bit of a leap of faith, but we encourage you to take the initative and use it next year. After all, technology is supposed to make our lives simpler and better, and in this case, it did.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support and help
as we implemented the online appointment system.
It worked beautifully and our parents and faculty were raving
about the system throughout the course of the conferences.
I have saved emails from parents praising if not exalting your system.
It was a tremendous improvement over past years' conferences and
we will definitely use it again next year.
Please feel free to list [us] as a reference.
In addition, our tech director has written an article on
tech implementation that focuses on our change to an online system.
He is hoping to submit for publication.
While the article focuses more on aspects of implementation of technology
and resistance it meets, clearly a major part in the success of the change
was the design of your program.
L.P., Jan 2007
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Our parent teacher conferences were on Friday and we received nothing but rave reviews about the new system.
Our families thought it was so easy to use and our faculty appreciated knowing their schedules.
Parents were much more relaxed about the day in general knowing they had control over their schedules and would not be waiting in long lines.
Please don't hesitate to use me as a reference for other schools looking into the system.
E.W., Oct 2006
Thank you so much for expediating the software for [us] so quickly.
We were planning on surveying the parents on the ease of using Virtual Paragon --
but it was not necessary as parents were seeking out our staff to rave about it!
L.P., Sep 2006
We cannot say enough about the success of our experience with Virtual Paragon.
The on line registration went without a hitch for both our
Fall and Spring conferences.
...The support from Virtual Paragon is outstanding.
I can say that this program has made our
lives so much easier around conference registration time.
I only wish we had found it years ago.
N.S., Jun 2006
Happy New Year.
I have to say that the most
significant positive change in my job in the last ten years was the
implementation of your program! I cannot begin to tell you how much
stress was eliminated. Every school should be using your program!
Warm wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2006!
N.S., Jan 2006
I wanted to let you know that using Virtual Paragon for our teacher conference
If you are ever looking for a reference, I would be happy to provide you with one.
Our parents, faculty, staff and administrators were most satisfied.
R.R., Nov 2005
Thanks for all your help.
Your program is absolutely fantastic!
You have thought of everything.
Conference registration was the best it has been
in the ten years I have been here!
N.S. & P.A., Nov 2005
I agree ... This program is wonderful.
I have been at [our school] for 18 years,
and this has been the best conference sign up.
It's also fun. Sitting on the phone for days was not only boring,
but not a very efficient way of doing things. Thanks.
It may interest you to know that the accuracy of this system
is infinitely better than the old hand-written requests,
and it saves us literally hundreds of labor hours in the office.
B.C., Oct 2005
It is so awesome and parents are really loving it!
It's been open for over a week and parents are still
able to schedule back-to-back. You did a great
job!! Thanks again.
... I'd recommend this program to anyone.
B.S., Oct 2004
The 2nd conference night went as well as the first.
Every parent that signed up ... loved the system
and couldn't stop singing praises for me and the school.
Every teacher was so excited to have had such a different
experience on conference night.
You've really made a difference in people's lives!
M.G., Mar 2004
TIME SAVED: literally, about 90 hours.
Last year I put in so much overtime to do the same job as the Software did,
that I ended up with a 2 week vacation.
Last week I actually went to bed on time --
[but] last year I worked around the clock to schedule conferences.
Thank you so much for developing this wonderful program,
and for bringing it to [our school].
As I have told you,
please keep us posted about additional programs that you create.
This one is very well-designed, and very easy for parents to use.
Our parents love it. There is very high praise for it.
L.S., Nov/Dec 2002
I've been getting the feedback and it's wonderful.
You ... should ... feel great satisfaction that the system works so
well ... and that people clearly feel the new system is
far better than the old. I can't remember any time that any project of
[the school] has received such uniformly positive responses.
[Congratulations] on a job well done.
N.S., Feb 2001
From the feedback you received it looks like you have got a hit on your hands.
I told you it was going to be something big. Really big.
By the way as a consumer it took all of 60 seconds to sign up. No stress.
I thank you ... for this awesome feat.
J.P., Feb 2001
I just completed the online conference registration and it was terrific.
It was easy, clear and problem free.
My congratulations ... for a job well done.
I am sure that all the parents in the school will appreciate this as
one of the best new innovations...
