3 Benefits of Using an Online Enrolment SystemMay 15, 2017
Changing traditional school practises can be challenging, however advancements in the opportunity for online enrolments are now offering some amazing benefits.
We’ve put together what we believe to be the three most significant benefits of implementing an online enrolment system.
- Time saving (for parents and your school). Traditional enrolment systems generally involve navigating to an enrolment page, downloading a document, printing and completing that document, then scanning it to email it back, or posting it. The school must then read and assess the form, manually input the information into their system and file the form. Using an online enrolment system removes a number of these steps, allowing parents to efficiently complete all information online without the need for printing or scanning, and allowing schools to receive, view and assess enrolments online, with no filing or data entry.
- Holistic view. Receiving some applications in person, some via mail and some via emails means that until data is entered into your school system (if this step takes place), your school doesn’t have an understanding of the enrolment pipeline. Having an online enrolment system means that you can view enrolments at every status, all in one place.
- No more paper. The reduction on your school’s impact on the environment is a given, and an undeniable benefit of shifting common school practises online. In addition to this, your enrolment data will be stored safely and securely online, rather than physically.
Without even mentioning the ability of parents to upload documents during their enrolment, the fact that they can pause halfway through and save their progress or the ability for them to pay online, you can see the impact an online enrolment system can have on your school.
