Quickly i will expose you to vital facts that will position you to make decision like an expert when choosing a school portal system.
1. More doesn’t mean better
Before now, software are riddled with so much more features that you may not know how to use more than half of the entire features, not until now, that the world knows better. It is a proven fact that complex system performs poorly. Complex system systems are difficult to use. More than 60% of features in complex system where not intended to solve any problem just to make it robust and the robustness is what degrade the experience. Simplicity is better. You don’t spend a whole term trying to understand how to use one feature. You will make less error, you have fun on the service because every thing is just a click away. Simplicity does not mean having less features but having features that solves a specific problem in a way that exceeds your expectations. Features is an art, it don’t just exist, it exist to solve your pressing problem.
2. Don’t buy until you’ve tried it
Nothing is better than your own experience. Experience positions you well to make a better decision but experience doesn’t just come. It comes by exposure. Every decision you make without experience has a high chance of being wrong. Don’t subscribe to any school management software without first trying it. Trying it in this context doesn’t just mean being exposed to one hour demo, taking at least 30 days to scrutinise the software, to know how best it can serve your school.
3. After Sales Support
Nothing frustrate than not knowing what to do when you are stranded. A good product without support is no different from the terrible ones. Subscribing to services with little or not support will cause you pain. Support does not just mean knowing who to call when you don’t know what to do but how easy and fast to access those help when you need them. A school management software with good support will save you time and guarantees a good return on your investment.
