As the goal posts for attainment and achievement are being moved, while budgets are frozen, School Business Managers and Bursars are having to find new ways to save time and money in the race to become more efficient.
Having purchased labour-saving systems including homework, behaviour, library or parental payment systems, many schools will end up with a number of business support suppliers. Often requiring multiple logins, many different points of contact, different levels of access to the school’s MIS and several bills, a school’s multiple and diverse systems can become a whole new level of administration in themselves.
The common feature with all of these systems is that they require a communication system enabling contact with parents, students and staff. But this is also an additional system in itself.
Join Steve Baines, Business Development Manager and Data Security Officer at Groupcall, to find out about the pitfalls of working with multiple systems, how to identify where there are problems, and ultimately how you can consolidate these systems and make sure all parts of your school infrastructure are working together.
