It’s common for school administrators to buy services and systems as you go, based on your most pressing needs at the time. Eventually you end up with many disparate systems from different companies that have practically nothing in common.
As you expand on various services–such as parent communication, emergency alerts, class management, or school attendance—keeping it all straight becomes increasingly hard to manage. Here are the top 4 reasons why the à la carte approach to school management costs you more than you think.
- The Ever-Growing Learning Curve
Every company has its own unique solution to the problem they’re solving for you. As you deal with different service providers for different needs in your system, your staff becomes busier and the learning curve becomes steeper. This issue is even more difficult to manage for new staff members, who need to learn the ins and outs of all the tools you use as quickly as possible.
- The Hassle of Manually Syncing Your Data
Imaging having one system for sending email blasts to parents, another to broadcast emergency messages, yet another to share pictures of children privately with parents…and don’t forget about the school attendance system! The task of adding, removing, and updating parent and child information in these various systems becomes a daunting task that will suck time away from your staff and cause headaches when the inevitable mistakes crop up.
- The High Cost of Confusion
When you have different companies providing all your school management services–most of which don’t even talk to each other–you’ll likely end up paying more than necessary to purchase or subscribe to all these solutions. Bundles or combined deals are usually less costly, plus they require significantly less time for your staff to manage effectively. Sticking with one solution from one service provider makes both practical and financial sense.
- Dealing With Different Companies
From time to time, you’ll need to contact customer service for the many different companies that provide a piece of your school management solution. Creating relationships and learning to work with all these companies takes time and attention, adding more items to your staff’s to-do list.
