An organised system is essential to manage the entire functioning of the school as it requires handling a lot of data and generating multiple students records. There are many departments of administration which need to be managed efficiently as it generates a lot of student data, from admission, fees to academic performances, it is highly essential for a school to manage these databases and to record it manually can be error prone.

This is why a school needs software to record these data in a systematic format. 

This information could be the general details like student name, address, performance, attendance etc or specific information related to departments like collection of data.

Since all the school processes work independently like admission, fees, report cards, hostel, transport etc, so it is highly important to have an automated and centralised system wherein the Information from one module will be needed by other modules. Hence storing it all centrally is beneficial for the school administration so that every department can access this information without any hassle. 


Keeping all these points in mind and considering the relevance of data to all the modules, a student database management system proves to be a great help for the school to streamline the operations. 


The student-related data maintained by the system ranges from fees and financial data, examination records to school bus fleet tracking and management, library management, and usage of the computer lab, laboratory, and other facilities. An SDBMS simplifies the work of a school’s administration department.


A student database management system helps to maintain the database of the students in an efficient manner and it can be conveniently accessed by all the stakeholders. 


The benefits offered by SDMS are as follows 


Streamlined Activities 

A student database management software helps to streamline all the activities. It helps to set up reminders for every event so that the stakeholders can take immediate actions.

Apart from giving comprehensive information on a computer screen, it highlights all of the essential data. This improves productivity with minimum effort. Streamlined activities help in faster actions and hence eliminate delayed decision making. 


Streamlined Communication 

A student database management system helps to streamline the communication between parents, students, teachers and administration more smoothly and transparently.

It also helps the school alumni in staying connected with one another. Instead of using the school diary, teachers can send updates to parents regarding attendance, school events, and disciplinary issues through email or SMS. Since all the records are managed centrally, it becomes easier for the stakeholders to get accessed to the data anytime, anywhere. 


SDMS helps in making the admission process smoother 

The student database management system helps to make the admission process faster, secure and error free. The students seeking admission in the school can easily fill forms online or offline and their information is stored in the database which makes it convenient for the counsellors to keep a track and take follow ups at regular intervals.

The software also helps to generate admission test results, test results, counselling dates, reminders, and knowing admission status are very easy. 


Data Security

A SDMS helps to keep the data privacy of the students. It allows access to stakeholders who are authorised to access the information. This ensures the security and confidentiality of all student-related data. The data is end-to-end encrypted and hosted on cloud. This ensures that the data may not be leaked, modified, or damaged due to any internal or external elements as the access is limited to certain people only who are authorised.

So, the school administration does not have to worry about manually maintaining student and employee records in large registers or computer spreadsheets.


Generate performance reports smoothly 

A student database management system is a comprehensive software which records all the records of the student performances. This also helps in generating performance reports of the students and accordingly helps the teachers to make customized study plans for the students to improve their academic performance.

Student database management plays a pivotal role. It helps teachers design students’ performance reports depending on their skills and understanding. These reports are automatically generated daily using their assessment and attendance records. Teachers can access these virtual reports at any time on their portal.

They can be shared with parents too and teachers can send weekly, monthly or bi- monthly reports to the parents to keep them in loop with their child’s performance. This also is a great tool to save time. It will allow teachers to manage their time effectively and with accuracy.
