There is just so much a school leader or admin can supervise during school time. With every second task as important as the next, keeping a check on every detail becomes a tall order. This is where an online school management system comes in. Its range of features from admission management to school bus GPS tracking system deftly manages the tiniest details of school operations.


Accurate information during registration process

Parents and school admin can verify that accurate student information is provided and entered during the registration process. Parents should keep the admin updated about any new changes regarding student details like new home address or telephone number. School admin in place should update the changes in the system.

An online school management system automatically uses these details in managing student’s attendance, sending notifications to parents, bus tracking, and emergencies. Schools can further ensure students safety for outdoor events like picnics or programs by confirming student’s medical issues and allergies with parents through the mobile app.


Automatic SMS notifications to parents

Teachers can instantly send student’s attendance status, bus boarding details, and urgent messages to parents through the online school management system’s automatic SMS feature.

In today’s age of instant communication, the school admin and teachers can communicate with parents in real-time through the online school management system from any web browser or mobile app.
