How to choose the right School Management System for your School

Choosing the right School Management System for your school or university is a decision that will play a very important role in your Marketing and Planning Strategy. A School Management system will affect everything from budgeting, to planning, to forecasting, to business data analysis.

So what should one look for when choosing the right School Management System?

Here are some important tips:

  1. Look for a Customisable School Management System
  2. Make sure that the company involves you in the decision making process
  3. Look for flexibility
  4. Make sure that the system allows you to gather data from booking forms
  5. Make sure that the system is cloud-based
  6. Make sure that the system allows for detailed reporting

Now let’s take a look at why these 6 steps are necessary

Why is it important to have a customisable School Management System?

Each school and each university is different; and unfortunately when you go for an off-the-shelf product you will often end up in a situation in which you will need to change various systems and processes in order to adapt to the new system. A customizable system, such as Intrinsiq, will ensure that it is the school management system that adapts to your system, and not vice versa. Having a customizable system also means that if, in future, you want to upgrade or change or integrate new features into your software, this will be possible and without too much hassle.

Why is it important that the company providing you with your School Management System involves you in the decision-making process?

Your school management system software provider needs to be someone who asks to have you involved in the project, because that way both you and the provider can rest assured that the end-product will be exactly what you want.

Why is flexibility important when choosing  your School Management System?

Whether or not you are currently already using a school management system you probably already have other systems and processes in place - whether it is accounting software, or online booking forms, or even a newsletter software to stay in touch with your students. A good school management system is one that enables you to retain the systems and processes that you already have in place and integrate with them. 

Why is it important for your School Management System to gather data from online booking forms?

Good online booking forms are an extremely efficient way of gathering important data that can help you increase the number of bookings. Sometimes, students start the booking process but then stop half way for one reason or other. A good school management system is one that enables you to pull out this kind of data, show you exactly where the student stopped and allow you to make contact with them.

Why is it important for your School Management System to be cloud-based?

Cloud based systems are highly efficient and also effective for a variety of reasons including increased capacity, scalability, functionality, as well as reduced maintenance and cost for computer infrastructure or members of staff. Therefore, it goes without saying that a School Management System provider that has been cloud-based for over a decade, is definitely the way forward.

Why is it important for your School Management System to provide you with detailed reports?

Marketers are known to spend hours interpreting data to try and pull out trends which would help them with their forecasting. A good school management system is one which:

  • Enables you to track Agent Performance at just the click of a button
  • Enables you to interpret enquiries at just the click of a button
