Managing a school’s administrative tasks is not an easy job. It is a very tedious and time-consuming activity, which if done in a paper-based environment, involves the employment of a lot of people. The various administrative tasks include admission, finance and accounting, student management, inventory, HR and payroll, sending circulars, examination management, etc. It is not easy for a single person to handle these responsibilities because of which many people need to be hired to handle them. But even after hiring employees, the work is done in a very chaotic manner mainly because of working in a paper-based environment.
It is a very astonishing fact that in spite of technology having progressed so immensely, as a result of which these office administrative tasks are automated and work in a paper-free environment, most of the schools hesitate to implement such kind of automated technology.
The main reason behind this may be because the employees feel that they are not very technically sound or the price of the software to be purchased is way above the budget planned by the school. It is a known fact that most of the school management software is very expensive, provided all the features are included in the package. But there is no reason to fear since UC- School provides one of the most affordable, all-inclusive School management software.
UC-School management software provides various solutions for managing the various office administration tasks like admission, fees, student information management, HR and payroll, accounting and finance, inventory management and many more modules. These modules help the school to function in a more efficient manner since all the tasks are handled using the software, as compared to working without the software using traditional methods.
Moreover, UC-School is a user-friendly software, which does not require the users to have any prior technical and coding knowledge. If the user understands how to use the dashboard and features within it, the software can be easily used.
