Our Clients Love Us

Real Client Testimonials

"Argos has so many features and so much flexibility that it allows users to get real information faster than ever before. We originally bought Argos so we could 'do' reports. We quickly learned that is is so much more than just a reporting tool."
Amy Scism
Database Administrator / Rockhurst University
“Argos assists me in monitoring staff performance and gift processing entry. We have been able to reduce the amount of paper previously used by our department now that Argos reports are emailed to our respective areas. And we are able to proactively enhance our matching gift program by using Argos to report on various employment and giving parameters.”
Karen A. Sims
Director of Information Processing / Lehigh University
"Evisions’ Argos is by far one of the best products Jacksonville University has purchased and implemented. The installation of the product took less than fifteen minutes and allowed us to start migrating reports instantly. Furthermore, the unlimited licenses, ease of use, free training, free upgrade model and fantastic support make Evisions a truly unique company. When it comes to reporting, Argos was the best decision we have ever made."
Christian Block
Director of Information Services / Jacksonville University
"Argos allows me to provide the Faculty Deans with up-to-the minute data on admissions where previously it took around a week to get that information together. The dashboards make it so much easier to understand the data."
Claron Driscoll
Admissions Manager / Australian Catholic University
"If we were going to buy something, ideally, it would be from someone we trust, someone we knew provided good products; we knew that was Kevin, for us it was kind of a no brainer."
Amy Scism
Database Administrator / Rockhurst University
"The University of Leeds needed an intuitive, configurable solution that was centrally developed and maintained, yet available to the entire reporting community."
Chris Jowett
Systems Consultant, Student Systems Administration / University of Leeds
“Evisions has hit the sweet spot of reporting needs with Argos and they have delivered on all of their commitments.”
Ken Evilsizor
Director, Information Systems / Point Loma Nazarene University
"I came to SUNY Adirondack from a school with no reporting tool, where everything had to be requested. When I got up here and found Argos, it was just unbelievable how much easier it made my job."
Cynthia Zielaskowski
Director of Registration and Records / SUNY Adirondack
“Argos helps me keep the pulse of my many volunteer groups. It provides me a user-friendly interface, that allows me to search on just about any question I have as I deal with over 1,000 volunteers.”
Jessi Schimmel
Associate Director, Alumni Association / Lehigh University
“A tremendous benefit of Argos for us is the ability to report across multiple databases. We are able to do reporting with Jenzabar CX information along with information from PowerFAIDS, JICS and Blackboard.”
Ken Evilsizor
Director, Information Systems / Point Loma Nazarene University
"The Evisions Argos product was not only extremely easy to learn, it has been extremely powerful as well. We were able to quickly rebuild and expand upon a large number of reports in a relatively short time. In addition, we have been able to create simple lookup screens and dashboards that have decreased the need for Colleague Licenses. The ability to combine information from multiple data sources onto one screen is just one example of its versatility. I would recommend the product to any business organization."
JD Hysler
Programmer/Data Analyst Information Technology / Jacksonville University
Argos reporting has streamlined the issuing of documents to all students, providing a consistent student experience."
Lisa Mangham
Supervisor, Counter Services Student Administration / University of Leeds
"We're a big fan of Argos. We have had the product for some time now and it has made a huge difference on our multiple campuses."
Fred Rocha
District IT Applications Support Manager / North Orange County Community College District
"It is rare to find a software vendor that truly puts customers first. Evisions demonstrates this with the quality of their software and customer support. Their software installs quickly, is easy to learn and it just works like it should. We spend at most a quarter of the time supporting Evisions software as we did with our previous reporting software. It is almost always flexible enough to approach an unusual problem in several different ways."
Brian Stillman
Dir. Administrative Computing / Northwest Nazarene University
“Before Argos, our counselors would spend a great deal of time writing notes, entering in the notes into a spreadsheet file and generating letters to our instructors related to our students with disabilities.”
Rob Easton
Programmer / Analyst / Aims Community College
“We have had many end users take advantage of the no additional charge web-based training and we love the CO-OP for sharing of DataBlocks.”
Bryan Blackwell
Programmer / Analyst / Point Loma Nazarene University
“The product is easy to use. The on-line training is very good, and we were producing reports within a day. As our skill level progressed, we began creating very complicated reports and dashboards. The Evisions support team has always been readily available to answer any questions we had.”
Derise Hedge
DBA / Developer / Hilbert College
"We're very happy with the relationship we have with Evisions. We're constantly challenging the developers and the management of Evisions with ideas of where the product should go, and we’ve actually seen some of our requests come to fruition. That's rare."
Kevin Crider
Senior Programmer Analyst / SUNY Adirondack
“From an Institutional Research perspective, Argos is a great tool to have on campus because it provides people with information they can use, not just the numbers.”
Ron W. Eskew, PH.D.
Director of Institutional Research & Assessment / Hilbert College
"Argos is user friendly. The banded report allows for easy creation of formatted reports. Pre-designed reports provide a quick way to extract the data required."
Gabriel Spata
Student Systems Support Officer / Australian Catholic University
“The Lehigh Alumni Relations Office uses a constituent relationship management model to assess alumni connectivity, activity and ultimately philanthropic support for our great university. The Argos platform has allowed us to pull, synthesize and analyze data in ways only dreamed of in previous years. Our successful achievement of yearly stretch goals and our strategies for increased participation are directly related to our use of Argos.”
Bob Wolfenden
AVP for Alumni Relations and Annual Giving / Lehigh University
"After installing Argos, our DBA was immediately able to do a simple query against the database and retrieve results."
Fred Rocha
District IT Applications Support Manager / North Orange County Community College District
"The Argos OLAP Data Cubes gave us a multi dimensional view of the University’s data including enrollment and grant information. With Argos it was easy to chart or slice and dice this information."
Megan Weatherford
Business Analyst / University of Arkansas at Little Rock
"About 4 years ago I moved to Mt. San Antonio College, a much larger single location college with about 60,000 students and we decided that we would go with Banner again there and we relied and went back to Evisions to not only pick up all their other products that I had used before but also we standardized on Argos for reporting."
Victor Belinski
CTO / Mt. San Antonio College
"Argos saves significant time in getting data to end users throughout the Academic cycle from admission through enrolment and onto Graduation."
Leo Macpherson
Assistant Academic Registrar (Systems) / Australian Catholic University
"We’ve been a long-time satisfied Argos user. Argos has allowed us to implement effective solutions for day-to-day tasks in several vital business areas, including Admissions, Alumni, Finance and the Registrar’s office."
William F. Haefele, Ph.D.
Vice President for Academic Affairs & Student Development / Rockhurst University
"We needed to improve our ability to produce ad hoc reports including dashboards for decision-makers. We wanted to empower our staff to easily generate any report that they needed to service our university and students."
Theresa McCoy
Coordinator of Management Information Systems / Missouri State University
"We found that the Argos Dashboards are easy to develop and were easy to use to get quick answers to questions."
Nathan Nolan
Associate Director of Project Management & Development / University of Arkansas at Little Rock
"We knew that we needed performance metrics but determining these metrics was difficult. It took a team effort to accomplish this determination."
Jeannie Winston
Vice Chancellor for Information Services / University of Arkansas at Little Rock
"I love Argos! Having the Argos product at Jacksonville University has made my ability to do my job easier. I can easily run reports for numbers and important data quickly, I can reach out to struggling students, and by using Argos, we can easily spot outdated information in our student data system and rectify it. I am grateful that JU recognized the need for the Argos product and understood how useful it would be to departments like mine."
Katrina G. Coakley
Director of Academic Advising / Jacksonville University
"Argos has completely revolutionised the admissions process here at the Business School rendering obsolete a mass of unmaintainable Access code."
David Laljee
Faculty Database Developer, Business School / University of Leeds
“Evisions is one of the best companies I’ve ever worked with. Everybody there is amazing – they are extremely responsive, very knowledgeable and eager to solve the problems. I couldn’t be happier with the support and the response I’ve received.”
Michael A. Murrin
VP for Information Services / Hilbert College
"Argos has given us the opportunity to break down reports and analyze specific data points. We’re getting much more information than we originally were able to."
Sarah Linehan
Director of Admissions / SUNY Adirondack
"Argos continues to amaze me in its technical and functional capabilities. I can go to one place and in a secure very user friendly way, get to all the data I want."
Matt Heinrich
Associate VP for Facilities and Technology / Rockhurst University
"Before Argos was implemented, every department on the multiple campuses had to fend for themselves and create their own reports or hire consultants to create them. The reporting strategy was very inefficient."
Fred Rocha
District IT Applications Support Manager / North Orange County Community College District
"The scheduling functions in Argos are incredibly useful and versatile, not to mention user-friendly. Setting up a schedule to execute, burst into different reports, and send dynamic e-mails can be configured in just a few minutes."
Scott Osborne
Systems Analyst / Programmer / Northwest Nazarene University
"Evisions has been incredibly easy to work with. Their professional staff and support staff have been friendly and helpful. When we have had issues, they have been quick to inform us of a current solution or develop new ones. We’re just beginning to see the power and versatility of the Argos software. Projects that used to take us 10-15 different reports can now be accomplished in one DataBlock."
Eric Kellerer
Executive Director of IT / Northwest Nazarene University
"Argos has made it easier to provide information to the campus community."
Katherine Coy
Director of Institutional Research / Missouri State University
We have found that most times, creating reports in Argos has been quicker and more robust than building native Banner reports. Argos has saved our school money by making our reporting more efficient and by putting the tool into our end users’ hands, thereby lessening the number of reports generated directly from our office. Argos easily creates professional, detailed reports that would have normally taken multiple steps to implement.
Delano Sweeney
Database Systems Manager / Bluefield State College
My staff found Argos very easy to learn and found it helpful that users have the choice of using the query builder or straight SQL code. This assisted with the migration of existing reports and enabled my newer staff to learn the Banner tables easily. The free online training and the ability to download dashboards from the CO-OP are wonderful features. I had a few users who were very apprehensive about the change; however, they are now some of my heaviest users.
Pam Woods
Director of Institutional Research / Northern Community College
Argos has created a collaborative environment between schools, who are now able to share DataBlocks and resources. People are calling each other. We’ve got the technical gear in place, so now people can push the envelope because they’re challenged by what other colleges are doing.
Dana Keith
Manager of Applications / West Virginia Network
“I love Argos reporting - it makes my life much easier. I particularly love the scheduler!”
Diane Welch
Assistant Registrar of Records and Systems / University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
“I love the versatility of Argos, and how easy it is to customize your information.”
Donna Hernandez
Student AR Coordinator, Accounting Services / Weber State University
“No other product (reporting tool) comes anywhere close to Argos. Argos ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Indu Ravichandran
Systems Manager / College of Mount Saint Vincent
“I have used other reporting tools and Argos is by far the most cost-effective and user friendly.”
Stacy Cornelius
Finance & Human Resources Systems Analyst / Brandman University
"From development to production, implementation took only 4 weeks and has saved us so much time and money."
David Henry
Business Analyst / University of Wyoming
"E-bills are now mandatory for students and in a survey we have found that students are happier with getting their bills via email rather than in the mail."
Lynn Crist
Business Office Manager / University of Wyoming
"We use to print up to 10,000 bills a month and use an outsourcing company to send them out. With FormFusion, we now print fewer than 500 bills a month and have saved a ton in printing and postage."
David Henry
Business Analyst / University of Wyoming
"FormFusion is great... it is built for Banner and uses all of the tools that are already on our system."
Nolan Cobb
Classification and Compensation Analyst / Chemeketa Community College
“FormFusion has made billing students much easier.”
Cindy McGee
Business Manager / West Liberty University
“FormFusion is by far the best way to distribute tax forms and student bills.”
Stacy Cornelius
Finance & Human Resources Systems Analyst / Brandman University
"We estimate that we have saved over $100,000 a year in paper costs, toner costs and employee time with direct deposit, electronic copies of checks and integration with image solution."
John Bilmont
Chief Financial Officer / City College of San Francisco
"We wanted to align ourselves with the City of San Francisco's "go-green" program and we knew that cutting down on our printing would assist with this alignment."
Don Lind
Director Payroll Services / City College of San Francisco
"IntelleCheck by Evisions enhances the look of our checks and allows us to have electronic versions of the checks that can be accessed by students and staff."
Romy Lao
Principal Business Analyst / City College of San Francisco

Tony Jayatunge
Manager Computer Services / Red Deer College

Eileen Zimmerman
Director of Systems Development and Integration / Bates College
“IntelleCheck provides us seamless integration with Banner and ease of use”
Stacy Cornelius
Finance & Human Resources Systems Analyst / Brandman University
"I get excited when I think of all the work that Evisions saves us when compared to modifying Banner baseline programs. The support that we get from Evisions is superior!"
Melva Williams
Interim VP for the Office of Technology Administration / Xavier University of Louisiana
"It’s wonderful to work with, their help desk always provides a quick and excellent response to whatever issue we’re facing. Out of all of our third party vendors they provide the excellent service that we need - quick rapid responses."
Cassey Tune
Banner/Technical Support / Arkansas State University
"The Evisions installation support is excellent. With every installation question we had, Evisions had a concise and simple answer. I would recommend their services to anyone looking for the best possible solution to the Banner® software system."
Chris Sanders
