Running a successful school does not happen in a day. It takes a lot of effort, time and investment in order to create a system that works for everyone involved - students, teachers, parents, administrators and the top management. If you are looking for a solution that saves time and is cost-effective, a school management system is the best one. This online portal comes with multiple features and has been implemented by many schools all around the world. 

The mobile app format of this software is quite popular and has been preferred by most users when compared to the web model. Since everyone uses a smartphone nowadays, having a school management app makes sense for the overall effectiveness of the system. It is more accessible (available 24/7) and easy to use. 

Listed below are the 2 most beneficial results of such an app with reference to the relevant features that accomplish these:

 

Cost-effectiveness

  1. Paperless -Schools house large amounts of data pertaining to students and staff. In the conventional method, this is stored in papers and filed in storage. When you have to search for anything specific, it takes a lot of time to get to it. Furthermore, the costs involved in maintaining physical copies is huge. 

School ERP software is paperless. Whenever anyone wants to check certain information, it is available at the tip of their fingertips in the form of a student data system. It saves the money spent on papers, files and storage infrastructure. The mobile app makes it accessible and even more convenient. Information can be searched for and identified within seconds and used for the relevant purpose.

  1. No extra cost - A mobile app comes at minimal or no extra cost. Whatever has been paid for the implementation of the school management system covers it as well, in most of the cases! Since everyone finds it more accessible, it makes perfect sense to have a mobile-ready solution.
  2. Minimal maintenance - A school management portal in the form of an app hardly requires any maintenance. Though the number of users will skyrocket in a few days, the investment remains minimal. So, a handy app that makes it convenient for everyone using it and does not cost much is the answer.

 

Time-saving

  • School parent portal - An exclusive school parent portal saves a lot of time. A portal that includes student grades, assignment results and exam papers. Information such as fee and transportation schedules can be posted on the module at one go and parents can see them in a timely manner.
  • School attendance app - Marking the attendance of students takes at least 5 minutes for every class and this time can be used better in teaching. A school attendance app is ideal for the purpose. With the help of RFID tags, the process can be automated. It is safer too. The attendance record is saved automatically and there is no margin of human error.
  • School management portal - A lot of management decisions are taken by the board members. Such decisions can make a school successful and therefore, are quite significant. These are based on past data and all of these can be accessed on a well-managed portal. So, instead of going through numerous files with paper-filled information, having an app saves a lot of time - time that can be spent otherwise in taking the right decision on time, every time.

So, if you are considering a school management system, make sure that it has a mobile-ready option as well. Information/data is vital for the smooth functioning of a small, medium or large-sized school. Having it at your fingertips makes it easier for everyone involved. So, make the most of it and save time and money while managing the school in the most appropriate manner.
