No matter how diversely we look at the education sector; either globally, regionally, or locally, the debate on using technology in Schools remains the same. However, the level of gaps are different demographically. Knowing this, it was truly heartening when i got an opportunity in which i consulted two leading local schools in adopting apt tools for better automation and improving efficiency.
The adopted tool is quite intuitve and is a modern cloud-based academic management solution. It was selected after going through the standard cycle of multiple competitive product evaluations, assessments, and vendor due diligence. The TCO and ROI were also determined, and were the key factors for opting towards the cloud-based solution.
The most heartening bit was that both the schools, and especially their leadership, understood the need of the hour and were very receptive towards the advise and consultation provided to them. Decisions taken quickly via well-informed Leadership is the top ingredient for any business’ success.
The new tool will benefit them greatly in closing the communication gap between Faculty and Parents, while ensuring children are the main benefactors. The schools’ business operations will gain improved efficiency, productivity, information transparency, and better automation of their mundane daily manual tasks.
Some amazing features
Both of the schools will receive some amazing features; such as Dashboard, Mobile App, Teacher/Staff Manager, Branch/Level Manager, Student Manager, Class/Subject Manager, Parent Manager, HR Manager, Finance Manager, Account Manager, Test Manager, Homework Diary/Assignment Manager, Fee Manager, Yearly Schedule, ID Card Designing/Printing, Daily Time-Table, SMS Integration, Smart Attendance System, Integrated Messaging System, News / Notice Board, Notification System, and a Department-Wise Communication System. These are just to get them started, while more features will be added on once the transition is completed.
The buck does not stop here
A post-migration feedback is in the plans to be conducted of Teachers, Parents, Students, and the School Management, through a well-devised survey campaign. Being the end-users, their feedback will be extremely priceless to ensure that the transition was successful, and also in future improvements and feature additions.
So happy to have have consulted two leading local schools in adopting apt tools. Now it is time to ensure that the transition is a breeze, through meticulous project consultation.
Feel free to give me a buzz if you or any of your contact needs technology consultation. Life is full of opportunities that is a door knock away!
