College administrators are used to some of the most rapidly changing environments in the workforce today. Increasing numbers of administrators are investing in school automation software to help them work more efficiently and boost their overall productivity. In fact, all levels of schools—K-12, technical schools, colleges, and universities—have experienced the benefits of using school automation software that integrates with their existing data sources. Below are some of the benefits of utilizing school automation software on campus.
Streamlines Internal Processes
With intuitive self-service options and 24/7, mobile-friendly access, school automation software empowers both students and faculty members to perform administrative tasks with ease. This ultimately frees college administrators up to focus on other daily responsibilities and improves the student experience in the process. School automation software also integrates with student information and general ledger systems, eliminating manual work and effectively automating existing processes.
Automates Forms and Payments
A school automation solution like CampusRight automates form management and payment collection. This provides students with an easy, mobile-friendly way to fill out forms and make payments, eliminating the need for college administrators to chase down paper forms and cash payments from students across campus. Integration with general ledger (GL) systems allows for digital fee collection, decreasing the risk of cash misappropriation and reducing manual work.
Improves Cross-Campus Collaboration
School automation software improves cross-campus collaboration by offering helpful features such as automated notifications and workflow approvals. These features allow administrators to communicate more effectively across departments on campus—not to mention that the ability to coordinate student information saves time and helps avoid delays resulting from manual approval processes.
Eases the Burden of Reporting
School automation software saves a significant amount of time that would otherwise be spent entering, tracking, and collating student data. Automated data collection helps to reduce errors that occur as a result of manual data entry and offers administrators a holistic, big-picture perspective for reporting capabilities.
Simplifies Event Planning
From invitations to ticket sales, school automation software simplifies the entire event planning process by automating all event-related tasks within one centralized platform. This type of solution frees up time that would otherwise be spent on manual event management tasks, such as verifying graduation statuses across departments and distributing graduation tickets to students allowing college administrators to work more efficiently and deliver a better experience for students.
