Challenges faced by the education sector


Manual tasks

Educational institutes often still store and manage large amounts of data in physical mediums, but manually entering and tracking all this data can be tedious. Long gone are the days where ledgers and notebooks should be used for tasks such as taking attendance, evaluating exam scores, and submitting assignments.


Paper-driven documentation

Many educational institutions still use paper-based documentation, which is time-consuming and inefficient. This can lead to errors, delays, and lost data. Educators must also manually update and organize documents, which can be a time-consuming task and can lead to difficulty in locating specific documents and information quickly.



Spreadsheets and paper documents are not easily accessible outside of wherever they're stored, making it difficult to share information with remote employees or students. Every time a change is made, the collaborators need to be informed, making this extremely inconvenient in a large educational institute where many individuals are involved. There is also no capability on spreadsheets and physical papers to have individual access points for students, teacher, parents, and admins.


Digital illiteracy

Technology is rapidly evolving and schools must keep up with the latest advancements to remain competitive. Many educational institutions lack this digital literacy needed to increase support for online learning and teaching. Without the right technology, it can be difficult to provide a high-quality educational experience. Education management solutions can help schools quickly and easily integrate the latest technology into their existing systems while improving student experience.
