The main challenges faced by the institution in their quest for the best school management software

  • Need of a centralized system for managing branch information.
  • Ineffectiveness in addressing software related queries.
  • Unwillingness to adapt to the institution's requirements.
  • Limited and/or one-time training for use of software.

How UC-School has helped the institution in overcoming these challenges

UC-School has helped Royal Institute International School in fulfilling their search for the best school management software. Before UC-School, the institution was finding it difficult to gather data relating to each one of their branches, whenever they required it. Once UC-School came into the picture,

This is what Dr. Nirodha Bandara, Academic Director of Royal Institute International School said, “This software has been helpful in drawing out useful pieces of information immediately, and managing our five branch schools”.

These days, not many school management software companies offer quick and effective assistance for solving queries relating to the use of the software. Moreover, they are not very adaptable to the various requirements of institutions.

“The team at Unique Creations Software have been extremely helpful. They respond to our queries immediately and are willing to adapt the system to the school requirements”, said Dr. Nirodha.

Since school management software is a particularly recent technological development in the education sector, staffs in schools need to be trained properly in using it. It’s obvious that switching over from a paper-based to a completely digital environment takes a lot of training, effort and patience. Most software companies either provide very little or no training at all, to the institutions that purchase the software.

Dr. Nirodha said, “UC-School’s team provide our staff with the necessary training as and when required. After having spoken to several software companies, Royal Institute chose to go with this company due to their prompt and effective service”.
