Admissions Software: 3 Features To Look Out For
When examining the current school admissions software offerings in the market, you may look out for the basic features that you would expect to see in all admissions systems. This includes application management, contracts, enquiry forms, fields to input student and parent info etc. But have you ever thought about these underrated features which you recognize the importance of at a later time? Let us break it down for you.
- Custom Forms: If you are like us and you believe that school enquiry forms should be kept short, our custom forms feature will handle that for you. You are free to add in the fields you want and so there are no unnecessary items. There are also different types of fields you can add including short-answer, radio buttons, and yes or no questions. By offering custom form creation, we make life easier for both the school and the parents.
- Re-Enrollment Option: Who wants to go through the entire enrollment process again when there can be a simple re-enrollment option? Save your school and parents loads of time by making sure that your school software is offering a convenient re-enrollment feature.
- Easily Generate Admissions Reports: Reports are underrated. You tend to not think about them much until you actually need to refer to them, but by then, it is hard to locate where you manually documented all info related to your admissions and enrollment processes for each student. The same goes for the parents. However, with an online solution, you can quickly generate admissions reports for each student and easily send them over to the parents. Not only that, we also have a feature to send over a quick update in the form of a progress report directly to the parents’ inboxes.
- BONUS - Schedule Campus Tours: Last but not least, you can even ease your campus tour scheduling process. Add in the slots you would like to offer to the parents, and the parents can then select the time slot that works for them. This way, the parents will not struggle trying to reach you when you are very busy, and the whole scheduling process can be done online with the click of a button.
