Ease of Use - Full graphical interface, making the program easy to learn and to use
Power - Optimisation engine searches for the best appointments and
removes gaps where teachers and parents are waiting around
Reporting - A comprehensive range of printouts can be printed: teacher schedules, parent schedules
and parent overviews for staff helpers
Flexibility - You can specify arbitrary start and end times for individual teachers
or parents and define any number of breaks for teachers throughout the evening
Compatibility - You can import teacher and pupil data from your existing management
system in multiple formats, including the UK government's CBDS XML
Understands Twins - The program understands that parents may have more than one child
in the same school year and schedules the parents, not the pupils,
so that no clashes occur
Parent Gaps - Will leave five-minute gaps between parent appointments if possible,
allowing parents time to get from one appointment to the next
