India, December 2015. School admissions have always been an hectic task, both for the parents and the school administration. For schools, it is about managing the overwhelming number of application forms. It has become a daunting task to manage the admission process manually. The task becomes even more difficult when you have to keep a record of the admitted students.
While coming to parents, it is standing in long queues just to get an admission form. To keep the options open, you need to apply to at least two schools, so the waiting process just got doubled. Parents also have to constantly relocate due to the nature of their jobs. With relocation and trying to settle in the city, it takes a toll to go through the admission process manually.
Fortunately, a solution has arrived and slowly it is gaining popularity. Online school admission system, as the name implies, automates the admission procedure. It collects the information into a single database and makes it easy to access and retrieve. Since the data is saved in a database, there is no need to keep a register manually. This drastically reduces the time spent on admission procedure and frees up time to spent on other important tasks.
From the parents’ point of view, no more standing in long queues for admissions. Application forms are now available digitally. Earlier, you had to fill up the form as soon as possible and submit it to the school administration. Many errors might occur in this process. But now, you can fill up the form from the comfort of your home, at your leisure.
One of the parent shares the ordeal he went through. "Getting admission for my first child was a nightmare. We had just moved into the city and were still in the process getting accustomed to the city. I had no idea which school to choose for my child. I went to the one which was near our home. I had to stand in the queue for 3 hours just to get the application form."
He further adds, "I am glad I don’t have to go through the same ordeal for my second child. Online admission is a great boon. I was a little bit apprehensive at first, but when I went through the website EnrolmentDesk, all my doubts vanished. EnrolmentDesk is an online education portal that offers list of preschool, schools and high schools in your area. I went through the preschools list and admission process on EnrolmentDesk and even got online admission forms. After utilising their institute reviews and ratings functions, I zeroed on a preschool and completed the admission process with online payment facility. I am really glad and thankful to EnrolmentDesk for their amazing services."
Online school admissions is the way forward. As more and more preschools and schools get into it, the more advantageous it becomes to both the parents and the school administration.
