School ERP software is gaining prominence by every passing day. A large number of schools are now looking to shift from their traditional mode of handling various administrative and non-administrative activities to a system that is more automated and easy to handle for all the stakeholders of the educational institution.
There are various ERP software providers in the market at present, which are providing modules, catering to most of the requirements of the educational institution. Given below are some of the features that UC-School, which is a top school ERP software should provide in the package of modules offered to schools, colleges and universities –
- Syllabus and lesson planner
Properly structuring syllabus of all subjects is a task that needs to be executed by teachers in a planned and organized manner. Such kind of planning would put the students and teachers in the same boat, ultimately resulting in increasing the attention span of students along with keeping them engaged and be up-to-date with what is happening in the classroom environment.
Our syllabus and lesson planner module helps teachers easily add new lessons to the subjects. New topics can also be added to these lessons. As soon as the teacher completes the topic and/or lesson for a particular subject, the same information will be updated on their portals. The admin can have a quick glance at the total topics as well as the topics covered by the teachers in a graphical format.
- Mobile app
Imagine a system where you can easily be updated with all the school-related activities on the go. Gone are the days when parents had to travel all the way to schools to pay fees, view student progress reports, attendance and time-table, get notifications about exams, lesson plans and file complaints. Our mobile app enables all stakeholders of a school to do just that and much more, no matter what time it is or wherever they are. Teachers can also eliminate the need to maintain attendance registers since they can now take the roll-call of students using our mobile app.
Payroll is a function for which most schools make use of separate software for easing out the complexity involved in the process. The payroll process needs to be made simpler, yet at the same time be more accurate together with complying with the various rules and regulations set forth by the state authorities.
Our payroll module helps in easing out this process, making it all the more seamless and quicker. With the help of this module being provided by our top school ERP software, the admin can set up the configurations that meet the deduction criteria, generate payslips, create payroll categories, generate monthly reports, set up the payroll financial year and much more.

Setting up the ‘Academic year’ is now a simple task with our top school ERP software’s ‘Academic year’ module which helps the admin to write the name and description of the current as well as the upcoming academic year, along with setting up the start and end dates for the same.
- Expenses (Inventory)
Inventory management is a task which has many elements, for which a lot of resources are needed and regular documentation, also needs to be done. Our Expenses (Inventory) module allows institutions to efficiently handle inventory related activities such as creating and maintaining stores and items, setting up indents, creating a list of suppliers and purchases made, creating GRNs (good receipt notes), tracking finance and finally generate reports for each one of these activities.
We all are aware of the borrowing and returning process that happens for the thousands of books kept in school libraries. In cases where there are thousands of students belonging to different grades, library management needs to be done very carefully, as even a single mistake would result in losing rare copies of certain books that the library keeps in store for all the students.
With the ‘Library Management’ module of our top school ERP software, librarians task is made simpler, since this module helps them in quickly adding new books, assigning them to students or teachers, then keep the details of the borrowing and lending of books in an electronic format, get due dates, view the list of books and do other such inter-related library management activities.
Keeping a regular track of the visitors coming to the institution and dormitories, along with their details is essential mainly for avoiding any unauthorised people to get access to the premises. Our visitor module is useful to manage visitors and guardians and also for keeping an eye on the gates of the institution. You can also generate PDF reports for these in the module itself.
It is important to maintain all documents in a centralized electronic format without having the need to go through physical files to get access to these documents when required. The Document module helps in uploading and storing electronic documents in a single place, for different file categories, user types like students and teachers as well as grades.
9. Third-party Integrations
Many schools and colleges have some pre-existing software for handling their various activities and this same software cannot be migrated easily to another one. This is where we as a top school ERP software make the migration process simple by enabling third-party integrations which would allow the institution to make use of our software features, along with the features of existing software.
Many School ERP providers hesitate in offering the features that are specifically required by any given educational institution. Sometimes, these same companies may take a lot of time to create these new features and they also charge a hefty amount for the same. UC-School helps in easy customization of any features needed by educational institutions at a very low cost.
