Modern day school management is an uphill task and therefore, there is a huge demand of software and open source platforms when it comes to manage student information. Student information system is a new technological advancement and it enables school’s daily activities to run smoothly and more efficiently. Uses of technology are very common in modern day school management and there is hardly any educational institution out there that doesn’t use technology. The use of open source student information system has doubled in the last few years as institutions have understood how benefited they could be by this technology. After all, no one wants to get left behind in the modern age of technology.

 

Traditional Student Management – The Painpoints:

 

In the past, educational institutes used to maintain a whole heap of paper register book to keep a track of their students. It was a big deal for the teachers and staffs to keep a track of whether the students were the attending the school or not. It was a pain for the teachers and staffs to maintain a lot of data and update the same on paper on regular basis. This is where student information system can make a difference. Lets have a look at the benefits of open source student information system.

 

An Easier Way to Collect and Store Data:

The use of open source student information system has made the life easier for the schools as they are now able to collect and store more data in no time than they used to do in the past. Modern day schools have a good amount of data to deal with and there is a bunch of information that needs to be stored in a proper manner for future use. With student information system, schools can now store all their data in one place and update them whenever needed. As mentioned, earlier schools used to do the same in paper register book that was a laborious task. On top of that a lot of spaces were required to store the papers, registers, documents etc that could be used for better purposes.

 

Improves Data Quality:

Paper work was never 100% error free as humans are bound to make mistakes. However, the open source student information system functions with a greater amount of convenience and is able to store all information in correct manner, without making a single mistake. It also improves the data quality and ensures all data is managed and maintained in a seamless way.

 

Works as a Mode of Communication:

One of the most important benefits of using student information system is that they can be used as an effective way of communication. It helps a school communicate in an effective way with the parents. As all information is handy, school administration would be in a better place in terms of sharing information about a particular student.

 

Apart from the above mentioned benefits, modern day student management software comes with a wide range of features and functionalities that help school administrators to manage their educational institutes in a proper manner.
