An educational center is still a company with fairly complex management and different areas that can be integrated and benefit from the help of an ERP to streamline its management.
But as a company, schools have sector-specific needs that do not always cover the standard ERPs found in the market. That is why, for some years, educational ERPs have appeared, specialized in the management of study centers of all types: colleges, universities, academies, centers of higher studies, etc.

What functions an ERP can integrate into a school?
Administration and billing area: A college ERP allows us to set up a calendar of automated periodic payments with different periodicities (monthly, quarterly, annual, etc.), make a detailed follow-up of pending receipts, access management reports, manage the treasury from the school, etc.
Academic management area: These types of programs also offer specific functions for the school organization of a center, such as a schedule generator, the management of report cards, the management of official documentation required by the autonomous governments or even manage functions as diverse as extracurricular activities.
Communications Area: In this area, an ERP allows to have a fluid and effective communication between the center, parents, students, and teachers.
It makes it possible to automate mass communications shipments with different senders and always complying with the data protection law. These shipments can be in the form of emails, SMS or push communications using school management app. The Secretariat of the Educational Center can publish a calendar of the center, share notices and news that appear immediately in the mobile App of students and families, etc.
