Features that make School ERP Software Need of the Hour

by Punit Singh Consultant

An ERP system takes care of a school's administrative functions and streamlines tasks such as fee collection, attendance, conducting exams, keeping a database of students and teachers, etc. A school with ERP software successfully adheres to the curriculum schedule and completes it on time, improving its overall performance.


School ERP systems have been a saviour for the education sector and take care of multiple tasks at the same time, such as:  


·        Admission process

The ERP system can simplify the admission process. The user-friendly management platform performs all the complex stages involved with admissions with zero error. Handling various documents gets easier. The entire admission process gets streamlined and stores the digitised student information for future retrieval.


·        Tracking fee payment

Payment of the fee, which is one of the most strenuous tasks to keep track of, gets simplified with ERP, especially during frequent interruptions. With ERP solutions, receiving fees and keeping track of payment history get easier. ERP software automates the operations related to fee payment, etc., and makes sure it gets executed. Schools give due reminders too.


·        Better productivity of teachers

With the help of ERP solutions, the teachers can navigate through various tasks seamlessly. Teachers don't have to waste their time in manual processes like taking attendance and assessments- all of which gets automated with ERP.


·        Exam management

ERP system also helps in preparing report cards for every student productively. Analysing students' performance and generating automated report cards become relatively easier. It also helps in the management o term-wise examinations. Teachers don't have to get involved in unnecessary labour like before.


·        Organises the record

Earlier, managing records of the staff and students used to encompass a chunk of paperwork and were also prone to errors. With ERP, records can be accessed with a single click, and everything is managed professionally. Also, maintaining records of children taking admission or those passing out of school was harrowing. Now the easy access helps to keep a record of every school member in an organised way. 


·        Better management of course

With ERP, the course structure can be planned for the entire year well in advance. Teachers can follow a seamless plan during their lectures to finish the syllabus on time so that students have enough time for revision.


Since the uncertainty knocked on the education sector's door, schools globally have been on the lookout for reliable means to function efficiently. While the ERP system streamlines all the school processes, a virtual classroom for schools also has been a blessing in disguise.

As the walls of traditional classrooms remain shut, virtual classrooms for schools have been saving the sector from plummeting. During the beginning phase of the lockdown, everyone relied on online learning's efficiency, but soon its loopholes got exposed. Online learning that is supported by integrated academic solutions filled the void that was created by online learning. Virtual classrooms are now high-tech than before and can achieve guaranteed quality learning besides maintaining continuity in education. 

Virtual classrooms also facilitate blending that's more of a requisite in the 21st-century. Virtual classrooms also offer flexible space for learning where students can learn from anywhere and teachers from any location. They also encourage cooperative learning and stimulate increased teacher/student interaction with comprehensive modules that can be paused and repeated if needed. These modules are quicker, manageable, and memorable.

New-age kids demand new-age solutions, and that's why Indian schools have to move beyond traditional learning. Amidst the ongoing circumstances, adopting virtual classrooms seem like the best idea where smart learning is achieved at all times. Lastly, in virtual classrooms, student participation level remains higher than in traditional classrooms due to the exciting and novel lecture delivery methods.
