The Problem with Paper
Have you ever considered how much the paper and printing cost of all the paperwork involved in each year’s new enrollments are cutting into already tight school budgets? What about the administrative overheads involved in sorting, filing, securing, and storing all that paper?
The amount of administration involved in running a school is significant. For one thing, any parent who has ever had to fill in and sign the stacks of paper issued by their child’s school at the beginning of every school year will be able to relate to the tedium and writer’s cramp this produces! Similarly, as a teacher or administrator, you know how much work is involved in managing the documents and forms schools generate!
Schools are also custodians of a great deal of highly confidential personal information and it is becoming more and more important to properly protect this information, especially in the light of growing information security risks in South Africa and legislation like POPIA.
In short, a paper-heavy administrative process costs money, wastes time, and creates security risks for your school.
