What are the Major Challenges faced by Educational Institutions?

Even though the education sector is growing, institutions are facing a number of challenges in various categories. In this article, we look at the major challenges in education management and how Academia Institute Management System can help overcome them.

Campus management productivity

This is one of the biggest struggles for educators. To maintain endless records of students and other administrative activities manually is not just exhausting it’s also time-consuming. It impacts student performances if teachers engage in admin work (which is the case in almost every institute). For higher education, with hostels and other facilities to look at, it becomes even more difficult.

Institute & Student data security

In this age of digital revolution, there are multiple threats revolving around data. They are

  • Phishing
  • Obsolete/outdated technology
  • Unawareness towards the vulnerability of data loss

Academia ERP is a cloud-based solution that gives endless flexibility as compared to hardware configurations. The data is encrypted with high security which is only accessible with authentic login credentials. Not only that, with cloud hosting it manages back up service and offers disaster recovery options in case the servers fail due to any particular reasons.

Parent-Teachers-Student Communication

Even though today’s parents are full-time working professionals, they want to be involved in their child’s academic activities. It is also a common fact that students perform better if there is proper parent-teachers-student engagement and collaboration. But most parents don’t have time to visit school/college every now and then for updates.

Academia mobile app and parent/student/faculty portal make it easier for everyone to check their respective information as and when needed. Also with email/SMS notifications, parents get prompt updates about their children.

Cost-saving Management

Providing excellent education and delivering quality in academic management have become major goals in the education sector. This doesn’t hide the fact that the quality and credibility of an institute does not only depend upon its staff but also on finance/revenue. ROI (Return On Investment) remains an important factor to run any organization.

Academia ERP can help the institute manage its cost-effectively by minimizing stationary costs, paper costs, printing & mailing costs, hardware costs, etc. Investment in education ERP helps in high ROI not immediately but definitely. With timely decision making, proper management, and complete automation, an institute can save time and money. This will result in increased ROI in the long run.

Teachers & Staff time management

The main objective of educators is to ensure institutional development and make teaching effective, productive and result oriented. But due to the tiring day-to-day tasks that are done manually, it takes away the enthusiasm and hardly leaves any time for creative thinking and innovation for teachers & staff.
