Many parts of education organizations are run similarly to small businesses, often with lean staffing and tight budgets. Certain institutions also need to provide in-depth reports to governing bodies, which are often done manually and are very time-consuming. This work is often duplicated across campuses where there is no central source of truth. An Education ERP system gives you the tools and insights you need to manage resources, save money, automate processes and improve visibility.

How ERP Solves Education Pain Points


  • Admission Process

    The admission process for educational institutions is often complicated and long. Applications contain a variety of information ranging from grades, dates of birth, specializations and more! If the task is done manually, the process can be time-consuming and prone to errors. Having to check all the records and determine if the candidate is eligible can be an exhausting task. With an educational ERP solution, you can streamline this process, making it easier and more efficient. Gain access to all the necessary information from one place making it easily accessible to the administrator.

  • Analyzing and Reporting

    With so much data, the challenge is trying to analyze it and put it into reports. With a modern ERP system, gain access to predefined reports designed based on your organization's best practices. Feel confident that you have visibility into the information you need. The software gives you the ability to customize standard reports, build your own, and add reports to interactive dashboards where you can monitor your data in real time.

  • Fee Collection

    An essential process to any educational institution is its fee collection. Managing the process can be a challenge for all administrators. The need to check each and every payment record of all students to identify what fees are outstanding can be a time-consuming manual process. An education ERP solution eliminates this manual task and makes the fee collection process hassle-free and less tiring. Easily categorize your fees and track all the components in the fee structure, including amounts paid for tuition, admission, books, labs, etc. to help students understand their fee status. Additionally, generate automated alerts to ensure students are notified on time.

  • Integration with External Systems

    It is common for educational institutions and organizations to have multiple separate systems, such as a financial management solution, an LMS and a CRM system. When these platforms don’t communicate with each other, errors arise, making financial analysis, reporting and consolidating both a time sink and challenging. Modern ERP solutions have advanced integration that ensures information can flow freely between external systems and your new solution.
