We have briefly described the process of using school management software to manage your inventory above. It is clear that process-driven inventory management and the use of school management software are a great fit. Below we explain in further detail how school management software benefits schools and colleges who want to better their inventory management process and see better outcomes:
1. Better Organisation of School Property
The first highly visible benefit of using inventory management module to manage school tools, resources, infrastructure — just all of an educational institution’s assets — are that you will immediately see this entire process becoming more organised. When educational institutions use school management software they are forced to first make an accounting of all the assets they possess and register them within the software. This means there is one place they can turn to to get a comprehensive and detailed reckoning of all their assets.
2. Superlative Tracking of Assets
Since all requests for use, requisition, procurement and disbursal of assets go through a inventory management module and all school property is closely tracked. This cuts down on one-time borrowing or informal exchanges — which is invariably how schools lose track of their assets. This also means that there is a drastic reduction in the loss or theft of expensive school property. It is apparent within one glance where any given item, tool, resource, or asset is with the school management software since it cannot be signed out by an unauthorised person.
3. Anytime and Anywhere Accessibility
No more standing in queues or filling out forms in triplicate for administrators managing inventory or the students and teachers trying to access them. The process of inventory management is far quicker and simpler than ever for all stakeholders — all thanks to the use of school management software. Students and teachers seeking to check out an item can only do so through inventory module in school management software. They can only do this if they are authorised to do so, which rules out an unauthorised misuse of school inventory. After this, they have to place a request through the school management software to procure the item in question.
Unlike before when this would have to be done with the inventory manager in person, after following a laborious and time-consuming process, teachers and students can log in any time into their school management software and raise an indent or a request for a certain item that they need. This does not need to be done within school hours but at any time or place of their convenience. This anywhere and anytime accessibility thanks to school management software means that school inventory is actually helping the very people it was meant to help while also being used appropriately — a win-win for all stakeholders!
