How do school ERP Solutions help in daily academic & administrative operations?

Not so long ago, schools used to be an entity that was easily managed by a handful of people with absolutely no hassle. But as educational institutes expanded globally, managing them got challenging. Juggling between various departments, taking care of the constant flow of student information, staff information, or fee details, got tougher, leaving the administration in a fix and disorganized, to say the least.

As the need for acentralised platform soared and the conventional work approach of the paper piles failed, the necessity for modern management escalated too. Earlier achieving any school task on time took a paper and a pen and maybe a few clicks on the computer, but as the school management transformed into a big enterprising stage and data became of utmost importance, school ERM solutions surfaced as an answer to the growing restlessness.

Why do schools need ERP solutions in the first place?

Today schools have deployed ERP (Enterprise resource planning) solutions to manage school-related activities effectively. The best kind of education ERP solutions are not only swift and comprehensive but also cater to the needs of the entire school ecosystem and its stakeholders effectively. Not just that, ERP solutions also boast a user-friendly interface which makes it easier for everyone to navigate through the operations. Since a child’s future is dependent on a school, the latter therefore needs to inculcate the best tools for its management practices.

Just when schools were getting better with managing their day-to-day tasks, the COVID-19 pandemic lead to a global shutdown of schools changing course for the functioning of a school, irrevocably!

Earlier where paying school fees, keep a record of new admissions, etc was managed face-to-face and was on the paper now has to be taken care of by a platform that ensures zero error with maximum efficiency. The education ERP software takes over every nuanced task of a school administration, automates it according to the requirement, and ensures the smooth functioning of the entire institution across departments. In a time of social distancing where human labor is taking a back seat and business across the world are going automatic, it’s time for schools to go high-tech.

How are School ERP solutions simplifying management tasks?

The basic idea behind the school ERP solutions is to provide mandate tools to schools so that it can focus on other responsibilities, besides helping in real-time generation of reports that assist schools to run transparently. With modern ERP solutions, educational institutions can easily optimise their functions and operations, with less human intervention, saving ample resources.

Let’s look at some functions that are being simplified by ERP solutions:

Admission process

Considered as one of the most error-prone tasks, the admission process can be simplified by the ERP system. The user-friendly management platform executes all the complicated stages involved with admission with zero error. The handling of various documents through various stages gets easier with this solution. It helps to streamline the complete admission process and store the digitised student information for future retrieval.

Fee payment

Payment of the fee, especially in the lockdown has become a task. With ERP solutions, receiving fees, and keeping a track of payment history get easier. ERP software automates the operations related to fee payment, etc, and makes sure it gets executed. Due reminders are also given to schools.

Productivity of teachers

The teachers with the help of ERP solutions can take care of tasks that need more mindfulness. Since they are not involved in operational processes anymore, other tasks that demand human intervention can be taken care of by them.

Exam management

ERP solutions also help in preparing report cards for each student. The ERP solutions help the teachers and management to analyse the performance of students and generate automated report cards. It also helps in managing term-wise examinations along with e-mailing mark-sheets.

Manages  portfolio of teachers and students

With a click, any information required about a teacher or student can be accessed on a screen. Earlier maintaining records of children taking admission or children passing out school were difficult. Now the easy access helps to keep a record of every member of the school in an organised way.

Course Management

ERP solutions also help the school to plan the course structure for the entire academic year. Not just that, it also helps in scheduling for the class tests and examinations ahead of time.
